As another 2ish feet of snow fall around my house, I've had time to do a lot of reading. I finished the second book in the Hunger Games series, Catching Fire, today. They are borderline addicting (can't put them down and you need to finish ASAP) and make you think. I'm currently reading The Devil in the White City, a book about the World's Fair held in Chicago in 1893. It talks about the architects and planners involved and follows the story of a serial killer. Scary, but it's interesting and I'm enjoying it so far.
Also, the Science Times this week was very good. Here's some of the articles I liked the most.
About the efforts to eradicate polio - http://www.nytimes.com/2011/02/01/health/01polio.html?adxnnl=1&ref=science&adxnnlx=1296601205-LpfGlGi02bvwXRB133dF8w
And 2 about new health care ideas and problems with our current system - http://www.nytimes.com/2011/02/01/health/01medical.html?ref=science
