I polished off a great book while I traveled-- Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex. If you haven't read it, you should. It's a tremendous wealth of information packaged up in a book that's terribly entertaining, and it's much more of a page-turner than whatever Dan Brown just published. I give it my highest recommendation.

I was in Scotland for a full 24 hours before I spotted the first McDonalds. I particularly enjoyed the double irony of it being right next to an LA Fitness.
