On Fathers Day, I was lucky enough to acquire an extra present.
Number One Son had a normal Kindle, but has recently bought a Kindle Fire too. He loves the Fire so much that the old Kindle became redundant - so guess who the new owner is?
So far I have downloaded 3 books, all freebies.
One is TAFL, a book about a Viking/Saxon boardgame, similar to chess. It has lots of variations in board size, number of pieces, etc, but the basis of all versions is the same. One player starts in the middle of the board, with a King and some soldiers. The other player starts with a larger force of soldiers set up around the edges of the board. The King must reach the edge of the board and escape. I am sorely tempted to make a nice wooden board and find some nice figures to play it with.
The other books are classic history books, one about Scotland (background for my Scottish army) and one about the Goths. All good stuff. And it won't be long before I start looking at proper books - some holiday reading.
Yes, I have a couple of things on my hit list already...
