I'm currently reading the following:
1) The Romanovs. Now reading about the beginning of Catherine the Great's reign.
2) The Strange Affair of Spring-Heeled Jack by Mark Hodden. More steampunk adventures by Burton and Swindford chasing a time-traveling historian from the future in mid-19th century London.
3) Street Without Joy by Bernard Fall. More about the French debacle in Indochina/Vietnam. Read the first set-piece battles in 1950-1952.
4) The Legend of Drizzt: Volume One by R.A. Salvatore. Not much reading on the good-hearted Drow elf....
