Read from October 29 to November 13, 2011

Read the first chapter, and if you're interested keep going. If not, put it down because it's pretty much the same throughout. There are some interesting anecdotes, and my favorite parts were the history behind certain paintings. The chapter on blue is probably the best. Overall a bit dry, but I learned a lot. Recommended for anyone interested in art.
