Late September 2017 reading....

Here is what I've read so far this week:

1)  The Romanovs:  1613-1918.  Reading more about Peter the Great and his campaigns in Sweden.  Interesting tyrant.  Brought Russia into the modern era screaming and kicking.  Loved his wife, boozes, and mistresses...

2)  The Strange Affair of Steel Spring Jack by Mark Hodden.  More steampunk London involving a screw-up time traveling historian from the future.  LOL....

3)  The Legend of Drizzt:  Volume One by R.A. Salvatore.  More reading about Drizzt's origins and what life was like for a non-evil Drow elf....
