Re: So, whatcha reading?
I am about a quarter through Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin series. I'm on The Mauritius Command right now. Without a doubt, this is some of the best historical fiction, ever. O'Brian researched 18th century battles from original Royal Navy reports. His writing on seamanship is so good, you would think he spent his life aboard a fighting ship, when in fact he never sailed once.
