The last week had its share of busy-ness, but I did manage to finish a few books.

First was one by Christopher Moore, called Fluke: Or, I Know Why the Winged Whale Sings, a wild fun read sort of about whales.

Then I followed that with a graphic novel called White Sand which is based on a fantasy novelists worlds (Sanderson? I forget), but it just never gelled with me so I won't be following it further.

Next was Osprey Elite #25: Soldiers of the English Civil War 1 Infantry after reading which I was unconvinced that these fellows deserved to be called elite. Maybe it's just me.

Then, Osprey Fortress #30: Fort Eben Emael: The Key to Hitler's Victory in the West...there's a Raid book about the same topic, for the most part, and they give a lot of importance to a fort. Although a solid piece of work on the topic, I wasn't convinced that this place was a linchpin in the defenses of the West. Maybe I'm silly.

Finally, a rather stupid graphic novel, Adventures in the Rifle Brigade which is supposed to be, but isn't funny.

So, this week had an occasional bright spot, but really wasn't one of the better weeks for reading for me.
