I found a Polish version of America. A Narrative History by Tindal and Shi in a bargain bin. So far I'm eighty pages in and continue to find myself enjoying the book. It still feels weird to admit something like that.
My underlings/students are great, but whenever they get stuck it looks like they lose all hope. It's a tad annoying to deal with. That said, I see some remarkable progress they made in the last six months.
