It is that time again!!!  The Thursday 13... go see Charley to get the rules and play along with us!

13 Books on my Nightstand

1)     'I Always Look Up the Word Egregious' by Max Nurnberg

2)     'The Hospital for Special Surgery Rheumatoid Arthritis Handbook' by Stephen Paget, MD and Michael Lockshin, MD

3)     'Longitude' by Dava Sobel

4)     'The Book of Fate' by Brad Meltzer

5)     'Good Living with Rheumatoid Arthritis' by the Arthritis Foundation

be well,
Dawn

Do I have to run upstairs to look?   I will try to get to that later and play the Thursday 13.  Looks like fun.  :)

Hmm, Even Vampires Get The Blues---? He musta' not bit deep enough! Need to go for the arteries, not the veins! THAT'S why he's got "the blues!"

Of course, now everyone will start to sweat, since you've reminded them: Tommorrow it FRIDAY, the 13th! And just as bad, is MONDAY, the 16th!!!

3's!

Dawn, I'm impressed!  I used to spend all my time with my nose in a book.  Now the only reading material on my nightstand is magazines.  Good for you!  HUGS Chris

I sent my Mother the picture of the cats. I also sent her your reading list as she is also an avid reader. Have a good weekend. Regards, Bill.

Your tastes are indeed eclectic but they say variety is the spice of life:0)
#8 sounds like a book I'd enjoy.

Speaking of books...*ahem*...you were going to recommend a couple for me to read, but you never sent me the names. I'm still waiting, you know.
