CONGRATULATIONS….A little over a year ago, David Plotz decided to read the Bible and blog a bit of it every day for Slate. My prediction: “Plotz himself will be lucky to make it past the two-week mark.”

On Wednesday, Plotz proved me wrong: “After 39 books, 929 chapters, more than 600,000 words — and just over a year — I’ve finally finished reading the Hebrew Bible.” Impressive work, though I note that he seems to have zipped through 2 Chronicles mighty quickly. But congratulations anyway. Apparently a book is in the works.
