Sitting at the table at the game convention, I had some time, and used it to finish reading A Feast for Crows, the fourth installment of the books that comprise A Game of Thrones' canon. Some of the baddies get something of a comeuppance, some of the good folks get screwed (or, get screwed some more), some of the folks who were central to other books seem to have dropped off the continent (though, I gather that they're in the fifth book). Still a good read. I'll start the next one after I finish a couple more books off my Nook.

I also read another Osprey, this one being Osprey Fortress #91: The Fortifications of Ancient Israel and Judah 1200 – 586 BC. Among the places it describes is Megiddo (with some pretty good illustrations); I recall how that site was central to a Michener novel, The Source that I read decades ago...

And just now I finished reading Osprey Elite #185: European Medieval Tactics (1): The Fall and Rise of Cavalry 450 - 1260. I found the illustrations pretty engrossing, and the author explains his premise well.
