Fantasist & Futurist
- Nov 23, 2002
I'm currently reading Viking Britain: A History by Thomas Williams (only £1.99 on Kindle). I've reached the section covering Alfred the Great that overlaps with Bernard Cornwell's Last Kingdom series, which is pushing me to watch Season 2 of the TV series, so I can then go onto the 2 books I think this will be based on: The Lords of the North and Sword Song.
In the meantime, I have a ton of ebooks I bought on offer last month, but I'm not sure what I'll dip into next. Fiction highlights include Stormrider by David Gemmell, The Key to Rebecca by Ken Follett, and Band of Brothers by Stephen Ambrose.
Non-fiction I'm looking forward to reading includes Russia: People and Empire by Geoffrey Hosking, History of the Later Roman Empire by JB Bury, Magna Carta by David Starkey, and They Fought Alone by Maurice Buckmaster - about English agents behind German lines in WWII.
However, I'm sure there will be more great ebook offers through November which might knock me off-track.
