It seems like I've been playing on my new computer every waking moment,

humans doing incomprehensible things.
The Plague Ship by Andre Norton
SciFi: Free Traders are on a new world, wanting to trade for gems. The
natives are descended from cats and they've just discovered the Free Traders
have catnip. haha... I haven't gotten to the "plague" part of the story
yet. You can download the text for free:
Plague Ship at Gutenberg
Meditation for Dummies

Meat Market by Eric Marcus
