More of a 'What am I Reading' post than a full review. The main bedtime reading is this book by Simon Scarrow, The Fields of Dreams. A fictionalised story giving details of the rise of Napoleon and Wellington and the lead up to The Battle of Waterloo.
I am currently 100 pages into a 700 page book and enjoying the way in which Scarrow has personalised the two main characters, it reads like a film script and it is very easy to imagine the scenes being played out before you.
My second book review is a very (very) old Airfix Magazine Guide, in this case Guide 1 Plastic Modelling by Gerald Scarborough which I picked up in the Acorns Charity shop for £1.50.
I have in the past had most of these guides but for some reason I never picked up this first guide! I realise that a lot of the text and images are intended for 'starters', but even so, I have enjoyed this little bit of nostalgia from 1974.
Should read 'The Fields of Death', for more details see comments!
