I was cleaning up my office yesterday; putting books back on the shelf and thought it would be interesting/fun to see what is on everybody else’s book shelf.  This is an interactive post!  Name 1-10 books of various subjects or topics that just might surprise people!  Weird, funny, scientific, your favorite, whatever; make it a surprise.  I’ll start with 10 books of my own…..Kat~

      Cool! I was beginning to wonder if I was the only one that reads book anymore, but those are some interesting books! 🙂

        To be honest my most recent books are on my Kindle – I ran out of space on the bookshelf! Most of these listed are books I’ve read many times.
        Except for the last one, which I wrote and is incredibly boring 🙂

        I need to build a new one. I like books especially old one. Though I like to read on my Ipad too. I was wondering about that last book you mentioned, seemed very technical, but you wrote so that is great! Any manuscript advice?? 🙂

      • draliman says:

        It was a PhD thesis so not exactly a manuscript! I seem to remember a lot of equations and graphs 🙂

        Just thinking about a thesis is daunting! 🙂
