Here is what I've read this week:
1) The Romanovs. Courtship and marriage of Nicholas and Alix in the late 19th century.
2) Old Man's War by John Scalzi. Got to the part where the Old Farts get new, green bodies and are shipped off to the Colonial Defense Force basic training. Perry becomes the recruits' platoon leader.
3) The Legend of Drizzt: Volume One by R.A. Salvatore. Drizzt escapes from his demented family, who are seeking to kill him for betraying Lolth, the spider-goddess.
