Conrad Murray — The Inmate with the Dragon Tattoo

Conrad Murray is CRUSHING his reading list behind bars … finishing more than 60 books during his stint in captivity … including “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” … this according to his baby mama.

“Don”t Worry” Murray”s on-again, off-again GF Nicole Alvarez says she”s been in constant contact with Connie since he was locked up in L.A. County Jail … and says he”s been desperately trying to keep his mind active.

“He”s been doing a lot of reading … he”s able to transport himself to all these different places … like Sweden or Paris or Afghanistan.”

Alvarez says Murray has also started a virtual “university” behind bars … educating other inmates in various subjects.

Let”s hope anesthesiology ain”t on the syllabus.
