This is one of my 2011 bathroom readers. One page a day should get me through it by the end of the year. Reading both 07 and 08 simultaneously is like a bad dream through the news cycle of yesteryear. They are both helping me remember some major world events that I have forgotten or I only heard in passing. ( )

Yes, the print is small, really small. I am not quite sure what I am going to do with this book, but could not resist it. ( )
