Default luxury reading

Ah yes, I'm a bibliophile from way back--and I live in the town with the most bookstores per capita as well as the highest library use....and the mother ship--Powell's (www.powells.com)

It's been hard being in school and having so much to read for courses and research that I don't get to do much pleasure reading. It's almost felt like "cheating" the few times I've had lay books assigned, like John M Barry's The Great Influenza if you haven't read it, it's a great read: really makes you aware of how far medicine has come in a very short time (the first 1/3 of the book is about the rise of the science of medicine).

That's always my treat when I have down time: get to read some fiction, or something else that isn't so intense.
