Cured: How the Berlin Patients Defeated HIV and Forever Changed Medical Science by Nathalia Holt
Encircling its nose lay a tiny clear plastic mask, providing the mouse with isoflurane, a powerful anesthetic capable of keeping the animal motionless while I performed the risky procedure. But the problem was, the animal was not motionless, at least not entirely. Just as I leaned in to inject it with a highly concentrated, lab-adapted aggressive strain of HIV, the mouse jerked. In that moment, the unthinkable happened: I accidentally poked my finger with the needle.Don't hate me because I'm right and you're not.

Just finished The Lost City of Z by David Grann. Between reading that book and watching too many episodes of River Monsters, I can safely say that I will not be visiting the Amazon EVER.
Also, I just found out that Percy Harrison Fawcett, the seemingly indestructible explorer who mysteriously vanished while searching for this lost city, will be portrayed in an upcoming film by none other than Benedict Cumberbatch. Because the Cumberbatch is everywhere.WOOP WOOP WOOP
