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.
Ride safe!

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

I just started reading "Blind Mans Bluff", about submarine activities in the 70's. Interesting for me because I was in the USN at the time, though not on subs.

Educated by Tara Westover.  True story as far as she can remember. Bit of an eye opener.

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

What a fucked up life!

Check out her parents websites if you want to continue.  If you are the least bit alternative or organic kind of an eye opener.

Also read her brothers comments on the web.  It is all a little shall we say different.  Perspectives and views from other ends.

On a Gaiman kick. The man has an ability to flesh out an idea into a plausible reality.
