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:
- 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.
- 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.
