Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

Yesterday, I managed to finish a quick read, Osprey Elite #174: American Civil War Guerrilla Tactics, which was certainly a change for me, amongst the Osprey books, and it was fairly interesting, being a subject upon which I knew only a little.

Then, in a fairly big push, I completed the new David Weber novel, set in the Honor Harrington Universe, A Rising Thunder. This series is military fiction, usually, but this book read as more political than most have before. It ends on something of a cliffhanger, which is fine. It leaves me wanting the next book.

Home, last evening, we watched Puss in Boots, the Dreamworks animated film, via Netflix disc, and I enjoyed it very much. I thought it much better than the Shrek series of films. I'm pretty sure they left things open for future features of the same character. I have to say that the artistry in certain areas is astonishing.

Then, I put on disc one, season one of Games of Thrones, which was also very good in a very different way. We'll continue to watch this one through the season.
