The My Favorite Things Meme

Having just been tagged by twitchie, I join in the fun of the My Favorite Things Meme and it does make me happy to think on this...

1. My husband and daughers
2. Discovering a new book by a favorite author
3. Learning something new in one of my interests: Mayans, King Arthur, ancient history, Judaics, religion, etc.
4. Talking to local or distant good friends deeply or about silly things for a good laugh
5. Hearing a new music or discovering a new artist
6. Watching Farscape, FireFly, SGA, and any other newly discovered TV show and sharing it
7. A cup of Earl Grey tea with honey and milk and a warm comforter with a good book
8. The smell of fall on a crisp sunny day
9. Completing a job and liking the results
10. Discovering I've lost weight

ummm, coming late to the table, it is difficult to tag folks, but... dekotaskye you're it.

OMG That is just AMAZING. What a beautiful gift. A drabble just for me. Now I have to think of a gifty for you back. {{{{{{{my drabble}}}}}}} and {{{{{{monanotlisa}}}}}}
2. Discovering a new book by a favorite author

If you can find them, try the Sector General series by James White. He's an English author, who wrote this marvelous series about a hospital in space. So far, I've only found:
Hospital Station
Star Surgeon
Major Operation
The Galactic Gourmet

There are, at least 8 more books. In fact, I'm always on the lookout for any other works by Mr. White.
I love James White! I also am very fond of another doctor in space book called Healer that I read over and over again--comfort reading.
You are the first person I've ever found who reads the James White books! I will try to find Healer. Who writes it?

James White has a Sector General book called Star Healer, but I have never been able to get a copy. Can you recommend any other James White books? I do know he even wrote an Earth: Final Conflict book for Tor. I believe he has passed away now.
I haven't read many James White but what I read I loved. Healer is by F. Paul Wilson and is a strange book about a symbiotic relationship between and alien and a doctor.

Check out alibris James White they have 91 titles. this is the largest used book store on the web. They will do searches too so if you are looking for a particular book they can find it.
Is Healer a series of stories? I will give it a try, copies don't seem to be too expensive. Thanks for the tip.
OMG!!!! More Sector General books! I'm goin' shoppin'!!!!!!

Thanks, Ix...you're a peach!
