Books read in 2011: No. 42 - The Early History of the Airplane

The Early History of the Airplaneby Orville and Wilbur Wright

Started: September 7
Finished: September 8

Notes: For historical interests, I decided to get this freebie for my Kindle. I'm only a few pages in, but so far it's an easy read and an interesting look at early aviation.

Mini review: I was pleasantly surprised how easy a read this one. There's not a ton of flight engineering data, which made it a nice read for a layman such as myself. This little e-book is broken up until several sections, and I felt the ones written by Orville Wright were the better reads, though Wilbur was not an awful writer, just a little more dry and mechanical oriented.

If it's free, I'm there.

Ha! That's one of the great things about the Kindle, isn't it?
