Due Back...

Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become. -C.S Lewis

I'm running a little behind here, i've read three of these already!

The Harvard Medical School guide to Taking Control of Asthma by Christopher H. Fanta, M.D., Lynda M. Cristiano, M.D., and Kenan Haver, M.D., with Nancy Waring, Ph.D.
Answered a few questions, raised a few questions. Not the most exciting book, but something I needed to read as one of my boys and my husband both have asthma.

Incidental Findings by Danielle Ofri
Pretty good.

Mrs. Kimble by Jennifer Haigh
My recent "treadmill" book. I like to have a "junk" fiction book to read while i'm on the treadmill. Not bad.

Polio, An American Story bye David M. Oshinksy

The Stain by Harry Lee Kraus, M.D. I purchased this on Ebay a while back and just started reading it on our trip. I love medical fiction (eg Robin Cook), and this is actually a Christian author to boot! So far its very good.

The Broker by John Grisham. I gave this to my dad for Christmas and took it back while we were up there. My dad finished it of course, he is the only person I know who reads faster than I do.

Boy by Ronald Dahl. So many people find my blog by searching for this book I decided to check it out (also, I like Ronald Dahl's other books). This is essentially his autobiogrophy. I read a few chapters on the treadmill one day, and its not bad. Unfortunately, its going to be returned unread due to lack of time.
