I want to say reading 200 books a year is an amazing thing. For example, what does it actually take to read 200 books a year? Before I began this project two years ago, I stopped to do the math. Here’s what I found: Reading 200 books a year isn’t hard at all. It’s just like Buffett says. Anyone can do it, but most people won’t. 2. Do The Simple Math. How long does it take to read 200 books a year? First, let’s look at two quick statistics: The average American reads 200-400 words per minute. A typical non-fiction book has ~50,000 words. Now, all we need are some quick calculations.

30 years ago a committee would have been organized with a Politburo member chairmanship, and local party cells would have been sent instructions on how one should make notes of the works of Marxism’s founders. Right after the revolution Vladimir Lenin introduced his plan of Monumental Propaganda - in other words setting up multiple monuments to great revolutionaries and social thinkers.

We tend to talk of nations as though they are individuals with defined characteristics and views on the world. Nations, of course, comprise many different groups with different ideas that evolve and change over time. It is a convenient shorthand.

Steve Dryden's new book brings to life a fascinating family history from the early years of Washington, DC. From humble beginnings as farmers and millwrights, the Peirces and their Shoemaker cousins rose to become civic and business leaders of the nation's capital at the turn of the twentieth century. This beautifully illustrated book is the first comprehensive history of the mill, one of the few remaining symbols of Washington's agrarian past and now a center for learning about the early technology of flour production.

This paperback is a wonderful historical review of the early beginnings of the United States. The Mill lies along Rock Creek just a few blocks East of Connecticut Avenue. When you visit Washington city, come see beautiful Rock Creek Park and, especially, Peirce Mill.

This is really two books more or less slapped together. Chapters 1 through 8 cover the history of the families associated with milling in DC and the Peirce Mill in particular. Despite the family trees on the inside cover of the book it can be very hard to follow the chronologically jumpy narrative concerning the Clouds, Peirces, Shoemakers, etc. Unfortunately, the family tree doesn't always help. For instance, on the tree the only JP Klingle child is "Lillian Klingle" but on page 53 her name is "Beatrice Klingle." Huh? Chapters 9 through 11 describe the restoration of the mill, but, once again, focusses more on the people involved than the mill itself. Despite the apparent mishandling of so many aspects of the reconstruction over the years, the author comes across as very sympathetic to the cause of preservation in general and reconstruction of the mill in particular, which makes one wonder if you're getting the straight dope. Overall, some good historic tidbits and well supported with photos, but there are definitely rough patches and, if you are expecting to learn all about the workings of the mill, this is not your book.
