Shelving books as you see fit

A blog titled “Biologists Helping Bookstores” has a simple mission:

I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but some bookstores seem to have a little problem discerning science from non-science. I’m specifically talking about biology books vs. creationist books. Sometimes, you will find psuedo-scientific rubbish such as “intelligent design” books next to such authors as Darwin, Mayr, Gould, et al.

It is my mission to correctly re-shelve books to the appropriate section of the bookstore.

I don’t know if there’s more than one biologist, or a cadre of scientists, but the blog keeps track, pictures included, of shelving anomalies found in California bookstores. [via MetaFilter]
