To cap off the most productive day I've had in a long time, I finished my book!!!!

To explain, this "book" is a 1130 page history of the Dutch Republic. I've been reading it since March. While on vacation in early August, in roughly equal spans of time I managed to read 100 pages of this book, as compared to 400 pages of The Omnivore's Dilemma. Needless to say, I am thrilled that I managed to finish the whole thing, especially since I do not consider myself much of a reader. And it will be nice to have a different topic, for a change.
