Books on the Bed
A sick bed has to have the proper books. Mine currently has The Idiot by Fyodor Dostoevski and The Strong Horse: Power, Politics, and the Clash of Arab Civilizations by Lee Smith.
On Sunday, I finished Blood Rain by Michael Dibdin, one of his Aurelio Zen mysteries. When you are feeling exhausted, reading about a cynical Italian investigator is right on the mark. Besides, it was a nice shift from all of the change management stuff I've been reading lately. Next up: Either The Virtues of War by Steven Pressfield or Prey by Michael Crichton.
