bookishness

 I am currently reading "The Island of the Colorblind" by Dr Oliver Sacks.  He is a wonderfully eclectic writer who manages to combine childhood exploration and excitement with scientific observations and conclusions.  I love the titles of his books. They just make you want to read them.  My favourite is "The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat and Other Clinical Tales"  Dr Sacks has been accused of exploiting his human subjects for his own benefit.  One comment in relation to this accusation made me laugh: "the man who mistook his patients for a literary career".
