Book 4 of The Expanse series. Love the lack of "warp drive" and everything kept within the limits of physics as we currently know it.

Season 4 of the series is now over on Prime and is even better (production quality) than the first 3. Even little things like when someone gets shot in zero G and just "floats" there; held in place by their mag boots. Oh yeah... no artificial gravity unless under acceleration or inside a spinning container.

Started a new series of books from Bob Blanton, Delphi in Space. A different twist on Earth being visited by Aliens / spaceship found / must hide it from the governement / good guys vs bad guys, etc. First book was Starship Sakira. I'm starting the second one Delphi city. Fun to read, so far.

I really liked that one. I actually did the audio book for this rather than reading it. Still good. Gaiman's the reader.

I borrowed that from a co-worker after hearing about it here.  I could not put it down; finished in like 3 days.

I'm THIS CLOSE to finishing it. It's riveting and also  :o! It's my book club's selection for this month and I am leading the discussion on the 17th.

If you like "Blind Mans Bluff" you should also read Red November by w. Craig Reed

W. Craig Reed, a former navy diver and fast-attack submariner, provides a riveting portrayal of the secret underwater struggle between the US and the USSR in Red November. A spellbinding  true-life adventure in the bestselling tradition of Blind Man’s Bluff , it reveals previously undisclosed details about the most dangerous, daring, and decorated missions of the Cold War

Relevant to the times:  Great book.  Great series.  Will freak you out.

https://www.amazon.com/Jakarta-Pandemic-Survival-Thriller-Collapse-ebook/dp/B0047DX080

THE JAKARTA PANDEMIC:

Cases of a highly lethal virus appear in major cities around the globe. Most ignore the warning signs.

Alex Fletcher, Iraq War veteran, has read the signs for years. With his family and home prepared to endure an extended period of seclusion, Alex thinks he's ready for the pandemic. He's not even close.

The unstoppable H16N1 virus rapidly spreads across the United States, stretching the fragile bonds of society to the breaking point. Schools close, grocery stores empty, fuel deliveries stop, hospitals start turning away the sick...riots engulf the cities. As hostility and mistrust engulfs his idyllic Maine neighborhood, Alex quickly realizes that the H16N1 virus will be the least of his problems.

"It delivers a vicious punch of violence and heroism for the reader to endure and admire. I could hardly put The Jakarta Pandemic down until I finished it." - Amazon reviewer

"The tension builds as difficult choices are made, when no good options seem to be available. I found certain segments to be uncomfortably realistic, at times creepy in the way you could feel things closing in around the family." - Amazon reviewer

"It makes you think...how far are you willing to go to protect your loved ones? Every day that goes by, these characters have to question what is right and what is wrong. Take the trip thru this book. You won't be disappointed." - Amazon reviewer
If a person's primary concern is increasing freedom, they should prepare for a reduction in average lifespan.  ---  Misanthropist

If you say "Gullible" real slow, it sounds like "Orange"

I'm reading "Beartown" by Fredrik Backman. The neighborhood book club read it prior to me joining. We're set to read the next book in the Bjornstad series in May ("Us Against You"), so I'm reading this one ahead of it. I'm really enjoying it so far!

Per Amazon:

Quote
NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY: LibraryReads • BookBrowse • Goodreads

“You’ll love this engrossing novel.” —People

The bestselling author of A Man Called Ove returns with a dazzling, profound novel about a small town with a big dream—and the price required to make it come true.

People say Beartown is finished. A tiny community nestled deep in the forest, it is slowly losing ground to the ever-encroaching trees. But down by the lake stands an old ice rink, built generations ago by the working men who founded this town. And in that ice rink is the reason people in Beartown believe tomorrow will be better than today. Their junior ice hockey team is about to compete in the national semi-finals, and they actually have a shot at winning. All the hopes and dreams of this place now rest on the shoulders of a handful of teenage boys.

Being responsible for the hopes of an entire town is a heavy burden, and the semi-final match is the catalyst for a violent act that will leave a young girl traumatized and a town in turmoil. Accusations are made and, like ripples on a pond, they travel through all of Beartown, leaving no resident unaffected.

Beartown explores the hopes that bring a small community together, the secrets that tear it apart, and the courage it takes for an individual to go against the grain. In this story of a small forest town, Fredrik Backman has found the entire world.

I just finished Firebrand by Kristen Britain.  It's the sixth in her Green Rider series.  There's a well-developed fantasy world and the main storyline follows a young woman named Karigan who came across a mortally wounded King's messenger, a Green Rider, while on her way home from college.  She completes his mission and eventually becomes a Green Rider herself despite the misgivings of her merchant father.  She's drawn into adventures threatening the realm and also repeatedly fights an ancient deep evil awakening to threaten everyone everywhere.

I won't go into a story synopsis as Amazon has it here:  https://www.amazon.com/s?k=kristen+britain+green+rider&i=stripbooks&ref=nb_sb_noss_2

One thing I like about this series is that skills must be learned.  You don't just find a magic sword and become a swordmaster.  Kerrigan isn't very apt with a sword but becomes proficient.  Throughout her adventures she sometimes looses, she gets injured or caught, and things just don't go perfectly.  People seem real, are developed, and have actual issues.  And the baddies, both mundane and magical, can be truly evil.

One drawback is that the author hasn't a specific end in sight.  Her website says that she'll keep the series going as long as she feels there's more to the storyline. But she recently released some stories set in the Green Rider world but which don't continue the main storyline. How much patience should I have?

If you're familiar with Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series, I'd put Britain's writing below his best but better than his worst.  I was reading WoT with friends, and we all were mystified when the middle novels started bogging down.  Many of the main characters were captured and tormented, and the storyline bogged in minutia.  It later came out that Jordan had cancer.  I think his personal experience was reflected in the changed storyline.  Britain's best writing resembles Jordan's earlier volumes in WoT, with well developed characters and backstories.  But sometimes the action becomes unclear and I have to reread some passages.

If you're interested in Ocean, fishing, sea stories  a former boss retired and turned author.

Deep Velocity is a fictional Submarine adventure. 

While the Albatross and Dickie Buck are historical memoirs gleaned from growing up on Cape Cod.

The Ninth Rain, by Jen Williams. Excellent fantasy and not your usual stuff. A really good author who needs a wider readership.

Until I got to page 117 and found that 118-257 pages were missing. Ordered another copy.

Into the Planet.  My Life as a Cave Diver
by Jill Heinerth

Pretty freaky stuff.  Made me really not want to dive more then 10 feet or so.  Library is closed now what? 


They have indicated that I could be orange.

I’m using “Hoopla” and “Cloud Library” apps.

I’ve been using the Libby app, which gives me access to thousands of books in the Kentucky Library system.  Both digital and audio versions for many.  Can refine your search based on subject, type, etc.

Before the library shut down here, I grabbed the first 6 books of the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series.  It's alright so far.

Orwell's 1984..........again. I like being paranoid. :D

Was this in the Fiction or Reference section.  Soon to be in the current events area.

After you finish this may want to take another read of Brave New World by A.Huxley.
