My friends, I have a bit of news that is, quite frankly, astonishing.
I have finished Don Quixote.
I know! I never would have thought it possible either. But with my mom's revolutionary plan of committing to 50 pages a week, a mere 3 months later, I'm finished!
I think I'm actually going to miss The Don a little bit. My bag was so much lighter, carrying it into work this morning sans The Don. No more crazy adventures for DQ and Sancho Panza to get into.
As Cathy and I were e-discussing this morning, it's actually surprising how many current cultural references there are to Don Quixote today. I mean, there's the word "quixotic"! How many books get a word all their own?
So I'm glad that I read the book. It may not have always been "pleasant" and would never be considered a "quick read." But I did it, and I'm glad I did. There might actually be something to this incremental way of doing things ....
