A Book Question

I heard a lot of interesting things about Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama by David Garrow, so I decided to check it out from the library. However, there’s a problem. See if you can find it:

Rising star

It weighs over 4.5 pounds. The text (not including notes, etc.) is 1,089 pages. And it’s typeset on the small size end of things. Why one wouldn’t make this a two-volume book isn’t clear.

It’s going to take a while to read this, I think. Or do I just return it, and get two weeks of my spare time back?

    1089 is 33 squared. Also my freshman college mailbox number. People I had never met knew instantly that I was a nerd when I was so excited about that. I’d pass on that sucker, though.

    Would you read the Hebrew bible?
