Book Hunters in Brief #125: Books for Friday the 13th

If you are reading this in bed because you refuse to risk even a trip to the kitchen for breakfast on this the unluckiest of days, Book Hunters in Brief has some books to help you while away the hours until the clock gives the all-clear sign at midnight. Of course, finding somebody to cajole into going to the library to check them out for you might be difficult (not to mention ethically questionable).

You say you are an entirely rational human being and don't have a superstitious bone in your body? Book Hunters say it's your funeral, bub, but we'll be happy to work up a custom reading list for you anyway, just on the off chance you make it through the day. Just visit us online. answer a few questions about what you like and don't like to read,(and promise to stay away from mirrors and ladders and the like). Okay?
