Trash vacation reading
Picked up Simon Scarrow's 'Under the Eagle'
in preparation for Hub Blog's summer vacation. Some are comparing Scarrow to Cape Cod's Bernard Cornwell
. I've started reading the first of Scarrow's Roman-legion series. It's pretty good, but I can already tell you he's no Cornwell. ... Now here's a Cornwell book I can't wait to get my hands on: 'Agincourt.'
But I'll have to wait. ... On-deck vacation read: 'The Historian.'
Should be getting to it by about Tuesday. ...
