I've been taking forever to finish this book:
In The Great Influenza, John Barry has produced a massive and exhaustively researched description of one of the greatest disasters of human history. I was drawn to this while browsing along Border's medical/health section. Reading the preface confirmed my purchase. But gahhh, it has been months and I still haven't finished it yet.
Paperback. 560 pages. Humph. I should be able to finish it by the end of the month.
My skillful art of procrastination at work again.
