First was As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride by Cary Elwes (AKA: Wesley)...though it appears that it was ghost-written, but whatever. It appears to be a typical recollection of production, patting everyone on the back, but there's some fun anecdotes and tales about the production that make the book worth reading if you enjoyed The Princess Bride.
Next was Osprey Fortress #105: Forts of the American Frontier 1776 – 1891: California, Oregon, Washington, and Alaska. Since I live in California, there were some bits and pieces of information about the history of this coast that sparked my interest. Pretty good work.
