Daily Thoughts

Good morning, I am drinking my morning coffee right now. I am thinking about the post I made yesterday about magazines. I especially like The Indie Next List which is a list of bestsellers from Independent Bookstores. . I often think that librarians don't look outside their field enough for recommendations of books to buy or read.

Right now, I am reading The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski. I decided to put it down after the first 100 pages. While I liked some pieces of it; I found it to be very dark and often gratuitously violent. It also seemed to have a bit too much of the gamer audience in mind.

I am reading Starliner by David Drake. It is part of the Baen Free Library. . David Drake is one of my favorite authors of military science fiction. He is a reliably good author with plenty of entertaining writing.
