Frankly, I had no idea that this would account to that many printed pages.
In this case going section-per-section is probably indeed the best solution,
ergonomically and otherwise.

As for Hubert's comment, well yes, luck and a lot of patience is needed :-).
Yet, call me old-fashioned but reading from paper is actually the only way
to proofread. (For comparable reasons I think these so-called e-books will
never succeed.)
