And you thought you were a slow reader... But have you ever taken 41 years to read a book? You probably haven't even been alive that long!

Well, this anonymous bookworm seems to be the slowest reader in history! He returned a book to the Champaign County Library in Urbana, Ohio with this note...

The book is titled "The Real Book About Snakes," in case you were wondering, and its original due date was July 17, 1972.

The library's director, Ty Henderson, said he was pleasantly surprised: 'He didn't just return it and not pay, he paid the money. That's awesome. That's honesty... He didn't throw it to the wind and say, "Oh it's 41 years, they're not going to know."'

So, be honest, what's the longest you've kept a library book?
