Doctor on duty

I’ve been in Canberra for the last week so no blogging last week and no vinyl display entry this week but I am back for the Lost Library Thing book display. This week we continue the Doctors and Nurses theme.

I am going to be focusing on a few medical related covers over the next few weeks. Doctors seem to feature in a few romance novels, as too nurses, so I seem to have collected a few here and there, without making a conscious decision to do so. Read the rest of this entry »
