    I just finished Unmasked by Andy Ngo. I think everyone needs to read that book. Andy basically had his reputation as a journalist destroyed for outing antifa for what they are. He had to flee the country due to so many death threats after publishing the book.

    Fiction heavy start to the year. Winter is our busy season here in Florida so it's always a more hectic/stressful time of year, been enjoying some lighter/escape reading.

    Into the Looking Glass and it's three sequels - military sci fi by John Ringo. Like all his books these are heavy on the conservative politics, huge guns, nasty aliens and detailed military action. The first book is focused on ground combat but the next three pivot to space naval combat. Not his best series (that would be his "March" books) but still very fun. Unfortunately book 4 left things very open for the series to continue and came out in 2008, so I think this one ends on a cliffhanger.

    Prodigal Son is the 6th Orphan X book. Didn't he say he was going to do 5 of these? Something (huge piles of money) must have changed his mind. Still a fun espionage novel, but the overarching plot has slowed way down. The introduction of several new characters who are very clearly going to be main characters moving forward shows that he's going to stretch things out more. These books are good but I worry how you can keep ratcheting up the stakes considering in book 4 he

    The Hound of the Baskervilles - Arthur Conan Doyle - 7/10

    Thought I'd read a classic Sherlock Holmes book this time. It was pretty good but kind of dry in character development and because of this a little hard to follow.

    John Ringo has some pretty good books. Have you read his Troy Rising series? His Kildaire series is kind of strange. Pretty much the first book is porn and guns. The porn settles down some in later books and it is more gun and action focused.

    Can't believe how long I've been away from this thread. 7 pages in the new years version already.

    Been reading The Last Kingdom series. About 70% through book 2. Quite like them, but it's always a dilemma for me. I like to complete a series when I have started, but with so many I'm not sure I will. Then if I stop I don't know if I'll ever come back to it.

    Want to read Norse Mythology some time soon.

    Also been watching Black Sails, so maybe some pirate books, if there are any decent ones.

    5. Snuff - Chuck Palahniuk - 5/10 - 2/6
    Decent twist at the end but the rest was mostly boring. Didn't really care for any of the characters.

    6. Sleepless - Charlie Huston - 6/10 - 2/18
    Thought it was a good story that was written poorly. Too many unnecessary details destroying any flow.

    It may seem like I'm not very critical considering a good many 10/10's lately, but books 9, 10, and 13 have been rereads. Book 12, Gunmetal Gray, was a new book for me, and it was very well written about an extremely interesting protagonist.

    Finished reading The Sacred Book of the Werewolf - Victor Pelevin
    Currently reading a collection of 4 short stories by Victor Pelevin
    on the list for part of 2021 are
    Notes From The Undergroud - Fyodor Dostoyevsky
    Empire V - Victor Pelevin
    Dead Souls - Nikolai Gogol
    Anna Karenina - Leo Tolstoy

    Of course there is the steady diet of Yesenin, Brodsky, and Mayakovsky. Currently searching for a very short Yesenin work that I can recite in Russian (which is why I started learning Russian).

    just finished 9th book of the year - Navigate 2.0 by Dustin Hillis


    sales + sales psychology book.



    as far as 'sales technique' goes it's very basic and not very deep


    sales psychology wise it's not bad -- breaks buyers and people in general into 4 different categories (fighters, entertainers, detectives and counselors)


    i'd give it a 5/10 (ded fkn Srs)
    ~focus on what you can control crew~

    ~flaccid cummer crew~

    ~you are who you surround yourself with crew~

    ~mum was an escort crew~

    ~nothing is permanent so just enjoy the ride crew~

    ~2.5 inch dink crew~

    ~Forgive yourself crew~

    ~Accused of incest by extended family crew~

    ~It's up to you to fix your life crew~

    ~deep, sustained sexual eye contact with your own nephew crew~

    I won't add this in my list, but I just finished a short 230 page (semi-large type) $0.99 paperback that I bought used entitled Soldier Boys by Dean Hughes. It's a book for young adults, and I read it to see if would be something a relative of mine might like. And if you know of any middle school age or older students who might like a WWII story, this was a decent book about two youths (one American, one German) who desperately want "in the action," and each get their wish. Coincidentally, they end up on opposite ends of a 400 yard field with woods on each side. One attacking then retreating; then the other attacking then retreating.

    Edit: I just started a re-read of For Whom The Bell Tolls. WOW!!! It's like Indiana Jones meets The Red Badge Of Courage in Spain

    A little more escapism reading this month. I'm 99% done with the certification course I am pursuing, so I plan to read some more serious books once I'm not saving all my good brain energy for studies.

    13 A Little Hatred - This is the first book in Joe Abercrombie's new trilogy following his "First Law" series. I loved the First Law books. This was good but not quite up to the standard of the first trilogy. I think some of that is because he spent a lot of time resetting the game board for the new direction this trilogy is going to move in.

    However, still really good if you like Dark Fantasy or Joe's writing, and apparently the second book was a huge improvement (third isn't out yet). I placed a hold for #2.

    14 Gun Runner - Larry Correia's new book is about a group of gun running mercenaries who get tangled up with a violent warlord on a hostile alien world. The planet is important because the chemical that allows for interstellar travel only grows there, but it's dangerous because of the giant creatures that live on the surface. So, basically DUNE but instead of knives and voice boxes for weapons there are giant mechs with rail cannons. Big, dumb fun.

    15 Money: The True History of a Made Up Thing - An exploration of the history of money written by one of the main guy's behind the "Planet Money" podcast. Picked this up randomly from the new releases display at my library since I've listened to their podcast and enjoyed it. I learned quite a bit from this book.

    Kindle won't read epub files but you can convert them to mobi files which it can. Use the program Caliber, it's free.

    5. Six Wives - The Queens of Henry VIII - David Starkey

    Took almost a month to get through this book. Very detailed and informative, but also a heavy read and a massive book. Starkey moves at quite a pace and it's tough cookie if you can't keep up. Quite a different historical writer to someone younger like Dan Jones.

    Currently reading a very short book and hope to finish it by month's end tomorrow. So, whilst it's a bit premature

    11/22/63 - Stephen King – 9/10

    A story about time traveling through a portal back to 1958 (5 years early) to save JFK from assassination but not without consequences (butterfly effect). Great story, if not a little long, that is a page turner and easy to follow.

    I know Payton will confirm with me that 11/22/63 is amazing.

    I actually saw it at the library today (first visit post corona), displayed on the counter near the librarian. I proceeded to aware her about the book. Lol

    The narration by Bronson Pinchot is one of the best audiobook performances I've ever heard.
    Feel like I’m on perma spread with you but this was fantastic, any audio brahs who need a new listen I’d wholly recommend.

    Wrapped up The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy fun, relaxing and creates a sense of wonder from the intergalactic fantasy world, plus Elon Musk likes it.

    A bit behind on my goal but planning to hit some books hard over the weekend by the pool because its supposed to be gorgeous. Tan and development gains boyos.
