Recent Airplane Reads

Been on planes a lot recently — first installment of reviews here — the Kindle is awesome while flying

* “Buckingham Palace Gardens”:amazon by Anne Perry. Period mystery set in Buckingham palace. Very good tale of ambition, murder, deception, class conflict, and passion. Great fun, worth reading more by the author.
* “Off Armageddon Reef”:amazong by David Weber. “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court”:amazon starts the Reformation in a backwater planet, with a lot of “Master and Commander”:amazon high seas action, set against a space opera background. Whew. Too much naval tactics at times but fun.
* “Curse of the Spellmans”:amazon by Lisa Lutz. “Harriet the Spy”:amazon grows up and is a bumbling PI and somewhat of a misanthrope but in a humorous way. Entertaining.
