I do indeed. Last night I read a chapter of "The Art of Calculus" wrapped up in bed with a big mug of cocoa. I spent this morning working through the exercises. This afternoon I did some work on my maths course, and am now relaxing with a chapter of William LeVeque's "Elementary Theory of Numbers". I don't know that it's fun, exactly, but I do find it very rewarding.
Crandall & Pomerance, and of course Knuth were on my wish list for Christmas (again), but sadly Santa saw fit to leave me a mouse and some aftershave. Maybe if I manage to sell another picture before Easter then Amazon will be getting a call.
