This evening, after dinner, I finished the second of two novels I brought with me on vacation, this being Paul Doherty's novel The Templar Magician set in the era of the Crusades. I have to say that it was hard to follow; it seemed a little disjoint at times. Maybe inadequately edited. Still, I did finish it rather than dump it because it did spark my interest, with scenes in Tripoli, the fortress of the Assassins, Jerusalem, Ascalon, and England of the period. This author's written an enormous amount of historical fiction, most of it mysteries, and this is another, just not one of the best.

As to this being the last paper book on hand, have no worries. Between my iPhone, with more than ten novels loaded on it, and my eMatic, with dozens (hundreds?) of books loaded, I have plenty to read. On the former, I'm reading On the Road, on the latter, I'm reading some seven different books, and hopping between them as I progress.
