Also, yesterday, I picked up and tried reading the new Bernard Cornwell novel, Death of Kings. I've read a lot of Cornwell's work, and I like most of his work, especially the Sharpe series. However, there's other series that I'm less enamored of, and this book is the latest one of his "The Saxon Tales" series about the wars that set up the Kings of England before the coming of William the Conqueror. I just haven't cared for them, and so I dumped this one. Can't wait for the next Sharpe, though...

I enjoyed that one less than some of the others, too. So far, the archer story is the best best. BUT when I was ordering books, I ran out of budget before I got to the Sharpes. As soon as the money tree magically comes back to life, I'm filling up the bookshelves. I KNOW I will love that series. That and the Horatio Hornblowers. I think I'd like them, too.
You know, both of those should be fairly easy to get through your local library, even if they have to use the interlibrary loan system...
