      I buy mainly used books on Amazon through third-party vendors because they’re so cheap. Would it still help you if I went to your link?

      I’m surprised nobody’s reading the boys in the boat, about the 36 University of Washington crew team.

    2. morgan Says:

      Reading the following: Strategy; A History by Lawrence Freedman. However, I was shocked by ahuge error early in the book where the Battle of Cannae was listed almost two-hundred years after the battle was fought–poor editing indeed. I am also reading an excellent bi-monthly magazine I subscribe to–Ancient Warfare. Each issue is centered around a theme and the current issue’s theme is: Protecting the Borders: Wars at the edge of empires. Returning to books, I’m also currently reading Michael Savage’s Scorched Earth: Restoring the country after Obama.

      Bill, thanks. It wouldn’t hurt.

      Morgan, thanks for contributing.
