The Coming Plague
The Coming Plague: Newly Emerging Diseases in a World Out of Balance | Laurie Garrett
After four decades of assuming that the conquest of all infectous diseases was imminent, people on all continents now find themselves besieged by AIDS, drug-resistant tuberculosis, cholera that defies chlorine water treatment, and exotic viruses that can kill in a matter of hours. Based on extensive interviews with leading experts in virology, molecular biology, disease ecology and medicine, as well as field research in sub-Saharan Africa, Western Euope, Central America and the United States, The Coming Plague takes readers from the savannas of eastern Bolivia to the rain forests of northen Zaire on a harrowing, fifty year journey through our battles with the microbes, and tells us what must be done to prevent the coming plague.

There are a lot of problematic things in this, but I for sure would‘ve died of the great influenza if I had to avoid libraries with old books 😅

When you get a little break from mommy duties, you read about plagues, risk a terrible stomach day with a cup of coffee 😅, and listen to the Sigur Ros Pandora station. #KillingIt 😂😂😂

At the Cleveland Clinic having more tests run on my stomach and I‘ll be here for several hours with lots of wait time between the scans. So a great opportunity to get some quality reading time. I feel like this is a great place to read about infectious diseases lol

Betty Hope the tests reveal results that can be quickly mended 2y
JacqMac Good luck! I hope they figure out what‘s wrong. (Love the book choice. 😂) 2y

Well, it looks like I‘m going to be in back-to-back trials for the next 4 weeks, including a First Degree Murder with a Firearm case. So I‘m getting some chill time in while I still can. On to this book that has been raved about on here. #NonFictionLove

Lizpixie Very nice! Yours is a lot neater than mine, I have a tendency to stuff whatever's at hand in with my books. Awful habit which I have to break, otherwise I'll run out of room for the things that matter most. More books! 3y
brendanmleonard I'm so jealous. 3y
StephTKO @Lizpixie I spent a whole week of staycation organizing everything. You're right, it's a double edged sword. I can find everything, but I have officially run out of room. 3y
StephTKO @brendanmleonard It's my life's work. I've been collecting these guys since high school. 3y
brendanmleonard Even more jealous - I've had to rebuild my collection at least 3 times! 3y
MatildaBaggins 😍😍 3y

Lizpixie @brendanmleonard I know how it feels to realise your books are gone. When the hubster built my library, I catalogued all my books to make a database, and realised forty plus books had disappeared. I now only lend books to people I trust, and they all have bookplates and lending cards that are dated 3y
brendanmleonard @Lizpixie while I've definitely lent out books I wish I hadn't, I did a lot of moving in my 20s and left a lot of books with family or people who later sold/got rid of them...and then the last time, I had to sell a big chunk of my library to pay rent. Luckily, that hasn't happened since 2011! 3y
Lizpixie @brendanmleonard I'm sorry for your loss my man! No one should have to choose between your babies and a roof over your head.😢👋📚🏡 3y
StephTKO @Lizpixie I think I want to start doing this too. I was thinking of getting an embosser. 3y
angrylilasian I dream of having a room like this one day! 3y
Alisnazzy When I get back to west palm, can I just set up shop here? K thanks ☺️ 3y
