A large book, be prepared if you put it on hold. Also set aside some time, because you'll THINK you can just look at it for a few minutes, and then an hour's gone by. Something for everyone. Really fun and extremely useful. Totally unique. It reviews books too, so now I've put more books on hold from the library...
