My 13th book on my Empty Shelf is "The Great Influenza" by John M. Barry. Well there's a reason they say 13 is an unlucky #, & there's a reason this book took me so long to read. I am normally a fan of nonfiction, I actually had to be conjoled by Hubby to start reading fiction. However, this book was written more like a text book than a story. I learned a lot about the terrible influenza outbreak of 1918-1919, but I was bored to tears. If you are more knowledgeable about medical terms than me, then you will have a better chance of enjoying this book, but if not, then I would say skip it.
I can't wait to start my next book! I'm going to choose something lighthearted after that :)
