Recent Big

What's the biggest book you've read recently? (Feel free to think "big" as size, or as popularity, or in any other way you care to interpret.)

Nothing "recent" but...

The biggest books that I own are two volumes of a Dover publication, of Thoreau's journals. Last summer I read volume 1, the first seven (of 14) of Thoreau's journals.

The book is so huge and heavy, it's a pain to read... Amazon says the book's dimensions are 12.6inches x 8.8inches and 2inches thick. Volume One weighs 6.2 pounds. It has 900 pages, but there are four journal pages on each page.

But I did love reading it, and I've been considering pulling volume two out.

Unfortunately, I'm a bit intimidated because I'm not able to read as much as I want to any more. Darn that day job for sucking eight hours out of my day.
