I finally finished the book that I have been reading since March. I bought a historical novel, and started reading it before I realized that it was part one of four.
The story was pretty good, and it takes place during my favorite historical period in China (the Republican period), so I bit the bullet and bought the other three volumes. Little by little, I worked my way through the 1600+ pages.
When I finished volume four tonight, I rewarded myself with a glass of good scotch.
Now I have to decide what to read next.
