    Damn - doesn't anyone other than @Doog_de_Jour read trashy books?

    How about Lee Child and the Jack Reacher series that doesn't star Tom Cruise? good quick reads.
    Steve Berry books featuring super spy Cotton Mather
    James Rollins books with super spy fighting agency SIGMA

    most of my porn collection is by anonymous so can't really recommend them

    Quite good.

    This sounds like a @CFetters_Nacho_Lover autobiography
    I see what you did there.

    Libby dude.

    Get the app (assuming you have a library card) and then you can use it to borrow e-books from your regional library by searching the app, then click on a book you like and it instantly opens Amazon and asks you if you want to transfer it to your Kindle -> transfer it, read it, then use the app to return it within 3 weeks. Free, easy, and amazing.

    It's teh teets. I use it mostly for audiobooks, set it on 1.5 or even 1.75 speed, and knock that shit out.
  • Pro Libby tip: If you're listening to a book before you go to sleep, set a bookmark and then the sleep timer. If you ass out before the timer, you'll know roughly where to go back to.

    literally described me and the thousands of podcasts I've "listened" to... turn on a podcast, fall asleep within 2 minutes, wake up and I've completed it. I never retain anything. I can't deal with audio books for that reason. My commute is 8 minutes so doesn't work for me in the car and everywhere else I just fall asleep (parenthood has left me chronically sleep deprived apparently) so I need to just read the old fashioned way - with my eyes.

    It's almost like someone sent you a sympathy card for your lost time when your kid was born.

    wouldn't trade it for anything, but there is no denying the circadian rhythms are now shot.

    I'm continually amazed to see that you read for pleasure. A white claw guzzling beaver who follows ASU...

    I’ve only read the first of the new ones. I liked it, but after a few other disappointing entries in the newer books I haven’t dipped back into anything Star Wars related. You recommend Alliances and Treason?

    Would love some recommendations that don’t have to do with war or sci-if, fantasy type shit.

    Just downloaded The Undoing Project by Michael Lewis. Looks interesting so far.
