Recommended Reading During A Bird Flu Quarantine

"And while a good many people adapted themselves to confinement and carried on their humdrum lives as before, there were others who rebelled and whose one idea now was to break loose from the prison-house." From The Plague, by Albert Camus
Existentialist Nobel Laureate Albert Camus was born in Algeria on this day, November 7, in 1913.

It occurs to me that his novel The Plague might be interesting reading in the event that we find ourselves quarantined and bored during an avian flu endemic.

The Clog Almanac invites suggestions of additional titles to add to what I'm going to just go ahead and call "my flu library". If enough of you reply, I'll post a list of your selections at a later date.
