Evan Foolish optimism is all I can plead...


message 2: by Jacob (new)

Jacob Hey, you're only doing what I would do if I had the brains and attention span.


message 3: by Evan (new) - added it

Evan I think we all have the brains and attention span but also, alas, the genetic time-bomb of mortality that limits pursuits such as this.

Also true. Although I think a 7-volume set would be easier to tackle than the other 3-volume sets I've seen. Slightly less imposing, you know.

So, what's your plan with this? Finish in X amount of time, or just read?


message 5: by Evan (new) - added it

Evan Yes, as these are in the 500-600-page range per volume, which is manageable. If I could do a volume a month I could be done by mid-summer next year. This is just a toe dip for now; I have to see if the water is fine before I go surfing.
