Reading progress update: I've read 622 out of 762 pages.

The Smithsonian's History of America in 101 Objects - Richard Kurin

This is moving faster now...or at least I am. Hope I can finish this tomorrow!

 

So far I've not really quibbled with the objects chosen as I thought I would. They are well chosen and do cover the History of America as well as a general text can, particularly given the unique aspects of a book like this.

 

My only complaint is...it's very difficult to hold and read as a regular book. It's simply too heavy. That would be the only reason I'd consider getting this as an ebook. However, the gorgeous pictures make that extremely unlikely. This really needs to be owned as a physical book.
