    If you enjoy Victorian England fiction take a look at The Meaning of Night. It's a "confession" of a murder. Slow starter but the last half is hard to put down. I just finished it last night myself.

    On to a book about Horatio Nelson I've had for a while just haven't gotten to it yet. I forget the exact title, though it's by Edgar Vincent I believe.

                      We are not now that strength which in old days
                      Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
                      Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
                      To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

                          Good book. It wasn't what I was expecting but good nonetheless.

                            • Working my way through this. I'm about a quarter of the way through and not sure if I really like it enough to recommend it to others - I'm finding the authors tone/style a little trying. Still, I hate giving up on a book once I start so I shall see it through to the end.
