Earlier this month, Scientific American editors and contributors published a list of this summer’s best science books, collecting titles from the “Recommended” page in our magazine and the “Books” section of our website.

Now we want to bring you closer to the authors of these books. Below is a poll listing our top science books of 2013, as recommended by Scientific American editors, contributors, and you, our readers.

Vote for your favorites and we’ll organize a Google Hangout with one of the highest scoring authors.

    Summer Books must have cooling effect on body, brain, mind, heart and soul.

    Interesting idea, but let’s be frank: the chances are near zero that anyone has even a small familiarity with all or even most of these books. I WISH I could have read them all, but there’s no chance. What you are really asking is, which of these books would you like to know more about from the author? That might be a legitimate question. But to ask which of these are “my favorites” is not even fair.

    Plus, the previous comment (from Preplers) is clearly spam; you should read these before they post.

    I recognize maybe 5 or 6, but I’ve only gotten the chance to fully read one (several I’ve checked out from the library but didn’t have time to get to). Good jumping off point for building up a “to-read” list, though.
