JQA's Still Sailing, Still Reading

I've started John Quincy Adams's Shipboard Reading List for October, over at The Beehive. At the moment our intrepid travelers (follow on Twitter here) are still trying to cross the Baltic Sea to get to St. Petersburg, and they're having a rough go of it. For the last week they've been stuck near Bornholm and Christiansoe, making little progress at all (map). But JQA's still reading (lately from Voltaire's history of Russia under Peter the Great, and from Chantreau's voyage into Russia).
