Two steps forward, two steps back

The Imjin War: Japan's Sixteenth-Century Invasion of Korea and Attempt to Conquer China - Samuel Hawley

A couple of weeks ago, I decided to act on my determination to clear some of the books off of my TBR list. I identified a couple of books that I might enjoy reading, requested them through inter-library loan, and budgeted the time to read them.

 

Then this evening while surfing around I identified two books about the Imjin War that I added to my TBR list. So much for progress.
