I started Valentine's "On the Origin of Phyla" about a month ago.

I'm on page vii.

Should be finished when there are no more phyla to observe.

I felt that way about Gould's Brick the first time I read it. It took the first week of the holiday to get through the introduction. I sped up after then luckily but DAMN. I thought new species would pop into existence around me before I read the thing.


So the rest of the tome isn't as dense as the intro? That's encouraging, maybe I should take another stab at it...

Less dense? Not really. I just made more effort!


Well I signed it out again and started plowing. I guess I just expected to quick a return on my investment last time.  

Man he sure does a lot of prep work.  "I'm going to tell what these three things are. Later. But here's why the three things, which I will tell you about later, are important."

And I did move one IDC book to its proper place in the  religion section before, but I don't think it was E of E.
