Here is a selection of books from which I will be selecting my reading list for my forthcoming holiday. I would be keen to hear any valid opinions from those of you who have read any of these books although I would not welcome any spoilers!
SNUFF, Terry Pratchett,a Discworld Novel, a XMAS present which I've been hanging on to for the holidays.
British Dreadnought Vs German Dreadnought, Mark Stille (Osprey), hopefully this will remind me of all the things I have forgotten about dreadnoughts.
Battle On The Seven Seas, Gary Staff, German Cruiser Battles 1914-1918, should be a good read.
Napoleonic Wargaming, Neil Thomas, yet another set of rules.
Wargaming Nineteenth Century Europe 1815-1878, Neil Thomas, looking for ideas.
I have a few more on order which should arrive before I leave in three weeks time.
Have you read any Pratchett yet? I hope so!ReplyDelete
At any rate, my opinion is his books are always a good read. I have Snuff in my pile of books to read, but haven't gotten around to it yet.
I have read many many Discworld novels. They are great.
I also liked the TV versions and in particular Going Postal.
I think I know how the dreadnought book ends, but I'll not give it away....ReplyDelete
Time will tell Tim!!Delete
I've read, and kept all the Pratchetts, including the childrens books. I usually enjoy them so much that I'm banned from reading them at bedtime! SNUFF was a little dissapointing in my opinion, but perhaps I read it on a bad day.ReplyDelete
Wargaming the 19th century is on my 'slush pile'. I've dipped in but need an in depth study.
You seem to have a very eclectic mix, something for all tastes.Enjoy.
I read my first Discworld novel in bed late at night.
I woke my wife up with the bed shaking as I was giggling to myself so much.
I still giggle a fair bit!
