It has been a bit of a slow start to the week reading wise. I haven't had as much time as I had anticipated and then my eyes keep thinking I'm tired. Here are a few of my accomplishments from the last few days.
I have barely started Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis; the Pevensie children have just landed on the island and explored it to find a river to quench their thirst. So that boils down to a whole chapter, hmm, more exploring in store for me.
Leaving the magical island I moved on to the American and French Revolutions with Napoleonic times thrown in as well.
I have worked my way through the Introduction to George Washington's Surprise Attack: A New Look at the Battle That Decided the Fate of America by Phillip Thomas Tucker PHD, thank you to Skyhorse Publishing and Edelweiss for an advanced copy.
I have been enjoying The Stockholm Octavo by Karen Engelmann, intrigue grabs you and you want to keep reading to follow along with Emil Larsson on his card journey.
I have also been to squeezing a few pages of The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas, which i started months ago and got side tracked, but The Count's mind for setting up his plot of revenge is ever so intricate and fascinating, surely one wouldn't want to cross on the wrong side of his path.
As to explain my weird picture, my copy of The Count of Monte Cristo is a Penguin edition, but on my Kindle, so I grabbed another one of my thick Penguin Classics (Black Lamb and Grey Falcon: A Journey Through Yugoslavia by Rebecca West) and covered the title so General Washington could ask what I'm reading to represent the fourth book, George Washington's Surprise Attack: A New Look at the Battle That Decided the Fate of America, as it is in PDF format.
