Barbara’s Bookshelf:

Just a little light reading for you…

“What should I read?” you ask. Well…

Okay. I know. It’s a lot! Many of these are books I’ve read; some are books I want to read. Some are for the medical professional, but most are for everyone! There are a few on the list that aren’t feasible to buy on Amazon (perhaps out of print), so check your local library or use Bookfinder to search for used copies.

Have book suggestions of your own? Send them along! I enjoy my nerdy dental and medical literature almost as much as I do Outlander.
