I can easily believe that. I'm a natural speed reader (CAN'T turn it off) and on a normal week I read 5-6 books (avg, 350-400 pages). it's great for studying and work situations, but sucks when it comes to pleasure reading. If I wanted to spend a week on the beach reading I'd need probably 20 books. Thank Zeus for my iPad and Kindle app. I can haul @4k books with me everywhere.
I was tempted by this (looks Foucault influenced - didn't Michel Feher edit a collection of Foucault's essays?) but in the end I spent £120 on Vertigo's Lucifer Omnibuses (Mike Carey) - more pictures . Kinda driven to it by Netflix's Sandman but I wish they were a partner to Absolute Sandman.This week: Fragments of a History of the Human Body
