Since time was short, the last few days, I have to catch up with posts about books read.

First of all, I finished reading Hamburger: A Global History which dealt a little bit with the origin of the hamburger, and more thoroughly with the history of this food as a tale about fast food. The book deals heavily with the history of the major burger chains in the US and later world-wide. Moderately interesting.

Then, I read Osprey Men-At-Arms #68: Napoleon's Line Chasseurs which was somewhat disappointing. I guess I'm used to the later Ospreys, with excellent plates and photos; this one seemed thrown together in people's sleep. The text was acceptable but I expect more from them.
