I read pretty much anything, from fantasy (City of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett) to romance (Bared to You by Sylvia Day) to classics (Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad).  The only genres I don't read are self-help and comic books/graphic novels.

Oxford Concise Medical Dictionary by Elizabeth A. Martin

Concise Medical Dictionary - Elizabeth A. Martin

25/12 - Of course I haven't actually read the entire 832 pages of this medical dictionary, but I have used it in order to setttle questions or discussions with family and friends about medical terms and conditions as well as during the course of my work as a medical transcriptionist.  This dictionary has been very useful in both situations, especially since it uses the Australian/British spelling which was taken more closely from the Latin than the American spelling.  The Australian spelling keeps the 'As' in words like hypoglycaemia, which is how I'm supposed to spell it (instead of hypoglycemia as America does).  Highly recommended for anyone who needs to be able to look up out-of-the-ordinary medical terms with the original British spelling.  My favourite word at the moment is agammaglobulinaemia, which is the total deficiency of the plasma protein gammaglobulin.
