I've been reading Chernobyl by Frederik Pohl on the sly here and there. Really interesting fictional account that brings in some different things than "this is how you make an RBMK reactor explode" to "this is what the mentality of the government and the communist people and other people dealing with the accident could have been." Very interesting read that puts a human face on something I've done a fair bit of technical reading on before.

That's the fun reading. Mostly I've been reading my research statistics textbook. I'm so tired of regressions and coefficients...one more week and I'm freeeeeeeee.
