Going offline

On January 17, 2011, in Uncategorized, by Karen Grepin

I am finally taking a real vacation, which to my husband and me means somewhere where cell phones don’t work and where we can’t get email as we’ll be sailing around on a boat to places like Jost Van Dyke (pictured below) so I probably won’t be posting for the next week.  If anyone needs me, I’ll be under the third palm tree to the left:

A vacation also means getting a chance to read some non-academic books.  On my list?  I am currently reading a bunch of global health related books, including:

  1. The Emperor of All Maladies – a so far engrossing biography of Cancer.  I am more than half way in, and I can’t wait to get through the rest of this one.
  2. Cutting for Stone – A fictional (gasp!) story of a doctor working abroad – or so I have been told, I don’t know much more about it yet.
Back soon!

    I'm just about finishing Cutting for Stone…and I've loved every minute of reading it. Many points of reference that I share–Syrian Christian/Kerala, India, health, Ethiopia (wked there on maternal & neonatal health project), immigrant in the U.S. And the characters are just fabulously developed, in my view. I feel like I know some of them! Happy Reading!
