On Her Majesty's Secret Service, by Ian Fleming

Title:  On Her Majesty's Secret Service
Author:  Ian Fleming
Borrowed from Kindle store
Started:  11/1/2013
Finished:  11/15/2013

This might be my favorite of the series so far. Even knowing Tracy would die, it was still a sad, moving shock when it happened.  In some ways a slower Bond novel, I really liked this one.

The Wine-Dark Sea, by Patrick O'Brian

Book #16 in the Aubrey-Maturin series (Master & Commander), I hate that this series is very quickly coming to a close.  Everyone is older now, old in fact, and their luck is starting to turn.  These books long ago stopped being about the quality of a single work, and more about the serial novel being written as a whole.  Just so damn enjoyable.
