Not that it wasn't a busy day, but I was close to finishing, and managed to finish two books today.

First was The Knowledge Web by James Burke, of Connections, who wrote a book about the history of knowledge and how it all connects. Nicely done.

The other book was What If? The World's Foremost Military Historians Imagine What Might Have Been. There's some pretty thought-provoking items in here, including stuff of which I knew nothing. Worth looking at.
