    1. Hours Heresy "Deliverance Lost"....its a bit of a struggle to be honest.

    2. "Extreme Ownership" by Jocko Willink. Pretty good self help manual.

    I'm almost finished with the latest Thor book, Spymaster. From the read of it, some new twists could take place in the series, or it could end.

    Down to the last few chapters in SpyMaster, will then move on to BUSEYISMS, Gary Busey's book, followed up by Permanently Suspended by Anthony Cumia, part of the Opie and Anthony shock jock team.

    Got started on:

    Tom Reiss's The Black Count: Glory, Revolution, Betrayal, and the Real Count of Monte Cristo

    https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13330922-the-black-count

    which is an interesting counterpoint to my study of history, presenting a rather vivid period from an interesting angle. Slow going though, since I'm reading it on my tablet at the moment --- need to break down and get an e-ink Kindle or buy a copy in paper.

    It also nicely ties in with my love of The Count of Monte Cristo and efforts to put together a list of Abbé Faria's books‎: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/21394355-william-adams?shelf=abbé-faria-s-books

    Those HH books are a little much at times, I much prefer the other Imperial type books, not the space marines ones...

    It's hard to empathise with superhuman killing machines. The Space Marines series I really enjoyed, however was The Night Lords. I'd much rather read about Cain, Gaunt's Ghosts or Eisenhorn/Ravennor.

    Yeah, that's an interesting plot point in Christopher Hinz's Paratwa trilogy (which unfortunately, went downhill from its interesting premise too fast for me to finish).

    Similarly, Steven Brust's Vladimir Taltos is far more interesting for being a human surrounded by other more capable folks --- really looking forward to his Count of Monte Cristo retelling.

    Zombifying this thread to say I just started Live By Night by Dennis Lehane last night after having finished my annual rereading of Puzo's The Godfather. Several other tomes have been consumed since my last post in this thread, but to be frank, nothing worth mentioning.

    The Godfather is one of my favorite books and has been since I first read it at about 17 or 18. Since then, I've made it a tradition to read it once a year. Nothing poignant, just a weird little quirk I've got.
