I've been reading a lot of non-fiction the last several months, and sometimes a chapter here or there drags, and it gets tough to slog through the read. OTOH, sometimes I crack open a fiction book, and it just flies.

Earlier this week, that's what happened to me when I read Scalzi's The Human Division, the latest of his Old Man's War series. I liked the characters, and I liked how he handled the tale very much. He's got another book in the saga due later this year, and I can hardly wait. One of his other, standalone books moves up in the queue now.

I also read a bit of non-fiction, too, this week, this being Osprey Elite #122: World War II Infantry Tactics: Company and Battalion. It deals with US, UK, and German unit formations and there tactical doctrines. Somewhat interesting, especially from the point-of-view of being a gamer. Not bad.
