I was looking through our weekly bestsellers and found The Great Influenza: The Story of The Deadliest Pandemic in History by John Barry at #8. Given recent events, I was a little more than interested in what was happening with that title. Meg tells me the order for that book was placed before H1N1 began making news, taking away all hope of some long winded essay about how hysteria is sweeping our nation and that books can provide wonderful context for current happenings.
