Reading goes on a bit at a time. It occured to me this morning that one thing that I'd read online was more or less a book, so I added it today, see below.

First of all, I finished reading The Spook Who Spoke Again by Lindsey Davis, a novella that I got from Barnes & Noble. This is part of her series of novels, mysteries set in Imperial Rome, the Falco series. However, it's written from the point-of-view of a boy of eleven, rather than the original protagonist. It's a funny read, as various high-jinks occur. especially good if you've been reading the original series.

Next was Osprey Fortress #33: Special Forces Camps in Vietnam 1961 – 70. It brought back memories of older friends' photos brought back from their service in Southeast Asia.

Then, finally, some several weeks ago, I finished reading online The Adventures of Drake & McTrowell: London, Where it All Began, a steampunk serial written by David Drake and Katherine L. Morse; they alternate chapters in a fashion intended to stimulate each other. It's a fun light read; they apparently do sell the saga as a series of books, but you can find it online if you look.
