Current Reading March/April 2012

Posted: April 22, 2012 in Books

Currently I am Reading:

Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy by Eric Metaxas

So far an outstanding biography of this intriguing personality.  Enjoying this immensely.  Also an interesting look into life in both Weimar Germany and then Hitler’s nightmarish version of a society.  This could easily end up being the most fascinating book I read this year.

Portrait of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

Another classic I’ve never tackled, but always wanted to.  On the Kindle of course.

1809 Thunder on the Danube: Napoleon’s Defeat of the Habsburgs  Volume III: Wagram and Znaim by John H. Gill

I finally got around to getting the 3rd and final volume of this excellent history of the 1809 Danube Campaign.  It’s getting my interest in Napoleonics stirred back up, which is good since I have a couple hundred AB’s to paint up.

Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits  by Philip Fisher

It finally turned up stuck under the seat of my car.  Now back to reading it.

What I’ve finished Reading:

March (ish) 2012 Wrap-up

Posted: April 14, 2012 in Monthly Wrap-ups

Miniatures Stats March 2012:

Bought for Month:     0                                                 For 2012:     4

Painted for Month:    0                                                 For 2012:     0

Wow, March was so busy that here it is mid-April until I get a couple of minutes to blog.  As you can see  it was an uninspiring month on the hobby front.  No new toys and nothing joining either the fleets or army. I did snag a few (very few) minutes here and there to paint and a few FoW Germans did inch toward the done column.  We’ll see how the rest of April pans out, but so far I haven’t even looked a brush much less picked one up.
