Record Store Day: The Most Improbable Comeback of the 21st Century
Larry Jaffee’s Record Store Day tells the story of how the event Record Store Day, first held in 2008 for record users and enthusiasts to come together to celebrate the unique role of record stores in the modern age, wrangled the vinyl record format from the precipice of extinction and sent it hurtling toward an artist-backed revival no one saw coming.

Nikos Solounias, Ph.D.
Professor, Anatomy
Anatomy and Evolution of the Giraffe: Parts Unknown
In a close examination of the anatomical essence of the giraffe, Anatomy and Evolution of the Giraffe looks at now-extinct giraffe species in North Africa that suggest an okapi population may have once thrived in the area as well. The book describes skeletal differences, anatomical scrutiny, and locomotive features of the giraffe and compares the evolution of the animal to other Giraffidae, a family of even-toed, hoofed mammals that share a common ancestor with deer and bovids.
