Doc: A Novel and Optional book exchange

  • Look for the books! :)
  • Born to the life of a Southern gentleman, Dr. John Henry Holliday arrives on the Texas frontier hoping that the dry air and sunshine of the West will restore him to health. Soon, with few job prospects, Doc Holliday is gambling professionally with his partner, Mária Katarina Harony, a high-strung, classically educated Hungarian whore. In search of high-stakes poker, the couple hits the saloons of Dodge City. And that is where the unlikely friendship of Doc Holliday and a fearless lawman named Wyatt Earp begins— before the gunfight at the O.K. Corral links their names forever in American frontier mythology—when neither man wanted fame or deserved notoriety.

    Some of you may remember the book exchange we did a couple of years ago for the holiday season.  We are going to do it again! If you are interested in participating in the book exchange bring a wrapped book, can be new or used (in good condition), and write down four things about the book.  For example, whether it is non-fiction or fiction, awards won, genre, etc. All members that bring a book will pick a number from a hat and then in numerical order each member will pick their blind date book.

    Yes, something like the picture I posted. Either write it directly on the wrapping paper or attach a sheet with the four things.

    I would love to attend but I have to give a final exam that day and turn in the grades the next day. This is always a fun meeting.

    Where do you put the list of four things about the book? On the outside of the wrapping?
