Over the last few days, I've finished a couple of meh books.

First was Monsieur Pamplemousse, a detective novel with the protagonist a former member of the Surete, now traveling incognito as a tester for a French guide to fine dining. He travels with his bloodhound, Pommes Frites, and they run into mysteries and get involved in highjinks. It's vaguely amusing, and apparently initiated a long series, but it didn't spark me more than enough to finish the original book. I won't be pursuing others in the saga.

Second was an ebook, Osprey Men-at-Arms #106: Napoleon's German Allies 4 Bavaria. It's another book intended as a resource for miniature gamers interested in the era. The plates in this one aren't of the quality that these books showed later (and presently).
