A few more days, a couple more books finished. I'm actually reading several at the same time, skipping from one to another, so I'm apt to complete a bunch all at once in a few more days.

Anyway, over the last two days or so I read two books.

First was Osprey Fortress #28: Forts of the American Frontier 1820 – 91: Central and Northern Plains, obviously primarily aimed at protecting US forces and civilians from Native Americans. A number of towns have grown up around the old sites, and their names confirm this. I found it moderately interesting.

Next was Beachbum Berry Revisited, a book primarily about how to make the typical exotic drinks that you'd find in a tiki bar. There's a bit about various associated topics as well. This is a compilation and revision of two previous works on the subject by the same author. Nice piece of work!
