    Finished that up & just started Border Raids and Reivers by Robert Borland. Only in by a couple of chapters, but has some interesting stories about the Borders of Scotland and England and why they were the way they were in the 15th-18th centuries.
    I have a copy of Borland, printed in 1898 and illustrated by Tom Scott. It's probably time to read it again.

    Wow. Most of the 'books' I'm reading lately are either e-book format or PDF created by Project Gutenberg and are in the public domain. I got them for free from various sources. No illustrations embedded, maybe a copy of the original cover art if it's an e-book, but usually just a generic cover if there is one. It's been a while since I've read an actual book, though I have a few hundred. I'll get back to (re-)reading them once I get through some more of the e-books.

    About half way through Simon Elliott's Septimius Severus in Scotland. Really interesting narrative with a lot of concise overviews of the Roman military, governance, and economic system of the time.
