During lunch yesterday, I finished reading an ebook, Osprey Campaign #2: Austerlitz 1805: Battle of Three Emperors, one of Napoleon's most famous and successful battles. It's well-laid-out, and filled with good information. It's sort of indicative that there's a chapter devoted to how to game the campaign...

I also finished reading a book this morning before logging onto the desktop computer, Valhalla by Tom Holt, another SF/Fantasy humorist from Britain. This wasn't the best work of his that I've read, dealing with Odin, Valhalla, and corporate entities, but it had a number of amusing moments, and I never thought of setting it aside. I'm way behind on reading his works, so I will move on down the list.
