    "Work in progress" isn't one of the options available to me in the "read" status...but that's closer to the truth. It's a reference work that I keep retuning to when I feel like I'm not catching the social or political ontogeny of something I'm reading. It works as a reference, a browser's history and a series of thematic expositions. Plus it's just nice to have around for intellectual comfort when dealing with the righteously ill-informed.

    Well... didn't really READ all of it... read key selections of only Volume 1 for the Presidential Academy for History & Civics. But it's a great example of reading the real words carries greater impact, particularly when you can see what else came chronologically. Fascinating.
