This is a book that has been over 10 years in the making! Started by a friend, he passed it on to me. It includes a list of every known ACL soda bottle from Rhode Island, color photos of every bottle, and detailed histories of every company. I'm working to get pics of the inside to show on Amazon. I wanted to sell if for $20 but wasn't able to make any profit on Amazon at that price. I will be selling copies in person for $20!

First, well done, the both of you. Admirable.
Second, over 3500 different soda bottles from the smallest state, by far , in the United-50-States (yes, 1/3 the area of Hawaii and just somewhat over 1/2 the area of Delaware) seems to be to be an almost incredible number, and lends credence to the rumor that Rhode Islanders prefer soda to any of those other potables, and explains the state's abbreviated motto -- "Hope", which, as we know, is short for "Hope to have another bottle of soda, soon."
