Well I'm putting together the latest travel reading pile.

George Washington's First War by David Clary. 
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0043RSKFI/ref=s9_simh_bw_p351_d0_g351_i1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=1CRXZA39HV1K9PMR7ZP5&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=1345685042&pf_rd_i=1286228011

The Last of the Mohicans
http://www.amazon.com/Mohicans-narrative-Leatherstocking-Tales-ebook/dp/B000JQV49G/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1333530981&sr=1-1
I know.  It's wordy as hell, but I enjoyed it once and thought it'd be worth a relook.

Ivanhoe
http://www.amazon.com/Ivanhoe-ebook/dp/B000JQUYI8/ref=pd_sim_kstore_2?ie=UTF8&m=AG56TWVU5XWC2
Another classic that I read and this makes me feel old about 25 years ago. 

And I have a couple others on the Kindle, but damned if I can remember.

I read Ivanhoe also 25 years ago in one weekend when I was punished. I loved the book!

Currently reading the base system book for Savage Worlds. After that will be a Walking Dead novel covering the rise of The Governor.

I'm in the last chapter and a half of Excalibur in Cornwell's Warlord Trilogy. One of the best series' I've ever read and ever book has been a gripping read. I'll be disappointed when its over although then I'll be moving in to the Saxon Chronicles.

I couldn't agree more Ulfang.  Cronwell's Arthur series is awesome.

I just checked out a bunch of books from the library this morning.  I think I may have an impulse control problem...  :-[ 

Wanting a change of pace from having read almost nothing but Horatio Hornblower the last few months, I think I'm going to start with The Stupidest Angel by Christopher Moore.  I love (and own) a few of his books already -- Lamb and Fool are nothing short of brilliant IMHO -- and I haven't read this one before, so I'm very much looking forward to it. 




I'm in the last chapter and a half of Excalibur in Cornwell's Warlord Trilogy. One of the best series' I've ever read and ever book has been a gripping read. I'll be disappointed when its over although then I'll be moving in to the Saxon Chronicles.

Amusingly enough, The Last Kingdom (the first novel in the Saxon Chronicles) was one of the books I checked out earlier today so I could re-read it; I think it's been four years or so since I first read it.  Fantastic series! 

(Sorry, I know I've probably said that often enough both here and at WG that I sound like a broken record at this point, but I really do love Cornwell's writing.)
