    Can I get one for all 20 years of my AAFP Journals? You could ship a new sheet every year for the last year’s set.

    I would actually buy this product. And give as gift to my co-residents.

    I’d forgotten this one, Dr. Doug! What the heck do we old guys do with old medical books?? I have a couple of years’ worth of Disease-A-Month! Remember that one? And years of the hardbacks Medical Clinics of North America, Yearbook of Family Practice, you name it, from the ’70s and ’80s when they were relatively cheap. Don’t even know where to donate ’em except the dumpster…
