[quote=""MLE""] Also reading Flashman and the Redskins, my first venture into the Flashman series, and it's a riot. The sheer political incorrectness is both jaw-dropping and hilarious.[/quote]

Hmm, I wasn't going to read Flashman this month, just didn't seem interesting, but the "political incorrectness" is making me rethink this one! :D

I'm nearly done with "These Three Remain" the last book in a trilogy by Pamela Aidan, it's the story of Fitzwilliam Darcy during the events of "Pride & Prejudice" and stuff we didn't see happen. After this I need to try to finish reading a NF book I've been reading on and off between Booksfree books before I get another batch from them!

I finished WITHIN THE FETTERLOCK (Brian Wainwright) last night and then jumped into WHEN TWILIGHT BURNS (Colleen Gleason).
