Between helping (a bit) with cookie decorating and clean-up, I had very little spare time to read, so today's post isn't as extensive as others have been in the last few weeks.

That being said, here's the run-down:

First book finished was Osprey Weapon #27: The FN FAL Battle Rifle, a weapon about which I knew nothing. Fairly technical, with a little bit of recent history to illustrate.

Next, and last, was Osprey Weapon #28: The Bren Gun, a British weapon especially noted in WWII. There was even a light armored vehicle specifically built to carry the weapon and its team. The write-up was pretty interesting, there's a bit more history in the use of this automatic weapon. Not bad at all.

More next week...heck, it's raining today in Southern California; I might finish one before nightfall!
