Feedbooks and project guternberg have being immense for me lately. Thier monumental database is quite something. Whenever you randomly want to read a book, short or long, old, fiction or non-fiction, thats the place for you. Most of thier documents are epub format so you might want to get an epub real.

Well, its pretty obvious why I chose this book , :). I was scrolling through the list of available books then I came across this title "Pandemic". Some of the books have short description and most don't, and the description is not enough to give one a full idea of what the book is about, so you really have to depend of the title. The corona virus pandemic has being ravaging every single part of the world, irrespective of gender, race, skin color, or anything like that. It really goes to show you that in the end, we all are just one human race really. It is pretty obvious the book would be about a viral disease or something of that sort so I was definitely interested. This one would be really hard not to give spoilers as everything really kinda centered around one thing, but then again I always have my dear hive community friends in mind so I'd do my best not to divulge too much information, but I'd tell you just enough to put you in suspense and ask me for the copy.

The book is very old but it still quite packs a punch in this modern era. It id kinda like it fortold this current happening, but then again there are tons of similar materials. I think what makes it unique is details in it. It seems well researched and the information pertaining to science and pathology checks out. For some reason, I was really hell-bent on finishing this book, oh wait, I think you and I know why, :). It has a bit of an himourous and somewhat satisfying ending too, so you can consider looking it up since its just about 30 mins read, or less.
