On Reading Fat Books

battle cry of fredomI’m reading “Battle Cry of Freedom,” a 900 page book on the Civil War, and I’m almost at the end.
“Almost” means … … … WHAT IS THIS
“Almost” means 120 pages left. WHAT. That is a whole book.

So L, age 13, says, “I found out that you have to look at the side of the book has the pages you finished, not the side you have left.”

Heh. I heard that, too, in 8th grade and up. I guess I forgot.
