  • What you just got?

    I'd wager few of us read our latest book arrivals as soon as we get them, in fact mostly I'm re-reading a book I've had for a while or reading a book for the first time but which I've owned for perhaps a while. I've got tonnes of International Relations books left over which I don't thin I'll ever read.

    Nevertheless I do intend to read today's arrival (When I've got a pause between the three or four WWI books I'm currently reading);

    A rather interesting, if odd, story of a hermaphrodite around the time of the fall of the Western Roman Empire. Fiction, of course (I hope).

    That's right bitches. I'm blessed!

          When Mom had surgery Friday I took Lost Victories by Erich von Manstein to the hospital to read, so that's what I'm reading now.

              I just couldn't get that one off the ground. I bought it a few years ago when I was in my German general memoir phase and he was next. Something about the his writing left me in the cold. I will probably give it another try some day.

              I just started Audierne's Victory which is the story of the resistance movement in a particular part of Brittany France that I know well because my wife vacationed there all through her childhood (and we still go there as her parents live near by. It is unique for me to read about WWII and actually be able to visualize the place in my mind.

              I hope your mother is well.

                        It looks real good in fact, rather tempting.

                          Oh yeah,the one where he refers to Irene Adler as 'The Woman' I'm reading now. It was originally 3 parts. I believe she stole his heart,and he would never admit it.

                            Opening Chess Moves For Dummies.

                            I'm trying to move up a few levels against the AI.
                            What I really want is Battle Chess!

                            Beyond that, local railroading history by the ton.

                              "Warrior Politics" by Robert D. Kaplan is outstanding.
