Worth reading:
* Boston Globe columnist Sam Allis talks to Dr. Jerome Groopman about doctors who jump to conclusions in diagnosing their patients. It's a fault he's been on the receiving end of when his son was young and nearly died due to a misdiagnosis and it's the subject of his book, "How Doctors Think,'' coming out in March.

* Edgar Allan Poe was born in Boston and spent time during his military service on Castle Island but Boston takes little note of his time here or his literary contributions. Globe reporter Kathleen Burge explores why.

* The Christian Science Monitor takes a look at a handful of newly opened independent bookstores and sees some hopeful signs. The headline? "We're not in it for the money.''
