The Governors-General: The English Army And The Definition Of The Empire, 1569-1681 - Stephen Saunders Webb

After a rapid start to my 2019 reading I now find myself in a lull. I started reading Stephen Saunders Webb's book on the governors-general yesterday, but after about a couple of dozen pages in I'm worried that I erred in buying his series before verifying whether I actually wanted to read it. I pulled a couple of other books off of my shelf, but neither really grabbed me the way I was hoping they would.


Part of the problem, I think, is that my reading priorities are a little unsettled at the moment. My teaching schedule was up-ended, and while it wasn't a big deal it's forced me to reassess what I want to read in the next couple of months., I ordered a couple of books, but as they haven't arrived yet I'm in the position of waiting and not wanting to invest myself too much into something else. The solution, of course, is to read something for a podcast, but after having blazed through two in the past week I was hoping to start something non-podcast related before taking on the next title.
