Let us know your current page turner.

I'm reading With Zeal and Bayonets Only - the British Army on campaign in North America by Matthew Spring. I've had this for ages and only just round to reading it. So far so good - well researched and a good overview  of operations, logistics and tactics. There are quite a few good books on the British Army - wish there were more on the American forces.

The winter soldiers, AWI. And just started android Karenina a steampunk adaptation of the classic.


Just finished Hydrogen Sonata the new book by Iain M Banks. Most enjoyable, classic Banks and in this one the Culture Minds take centre stage, more so than a human character.
