CALL ME BROWSER TWO

There’s a certain list of nifty books that someone didn’t write. I am that someone. I’m a bookstore browser and have spent many pleasurable late-evening hours in bookstores. Not opening the books, just eye-sauntering through their titles. After all these years, it might account for the titles that pop into my head unbidden at odd moments. I’ve got over 400 now. Here are some of the most recent, with the bookstore section(s) they’d be found in, if they could be found:

About judyjablow123

In my youth I was a world class tournament golfer. I earned an MA in history at NYU, after which I knew I had had enough of academia. I have remained a student of history. I have a strongly personal - almost entirely negative- take on the contemporary pharmaceutical and mental health industries. That was the impetus for my Bluepolar blog, which will also include stuff on sports, history and anything else that strikes my interest.
