    I suspect, the Scot Harvath series of books might be coming to an end, based on the Back Lash, it's possible I could be wrong but it feels that way.

    Thanks for that... I think most can accurately speculate which group of armed professionals provided that author with stories lol.

    I've read all of Morgan's other cyberpunk/envoy novels and am hoping this new novel/character will be as good.....

    Is it just me, or do any of y'all notice most of us seem to buy most of our reading materials? Am I the only one who still uses the local public library?

    Just wondering.

    L'chaim!

    Libraries will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no libraries.
    --- American writer Anne Herbert (1950-2015).

    Mostly these days I read bargain books on a Kindle (they regularly sell books for $1.99, when I see something which appeals it gets bought with an Amazon Gift Card earned using the Microsoft Rewards program). Unfortunately, been too busy to go to the library for a long while now, and unfortunately, when I stopped going, it was because my Amazon wish list of books was 185 titles, only one of which was available in the local library: _The Horse, the Wheel, and Language: How Bronze-Age Riders from the Eurasian Steppes Shaped the Modern World_ by David W. Anthony --- irony is most of the Kindle books I've been buying and reading probably are in the local library, but the convenience and time economy makes the book setup a much better usage of Napoleon's most precious commodity.

    Other books I've been reading:

    - _H. Beam Piper: A Biography_ by John F. Carr --- notable science fiction author whose _Little Fuzzy_ is available from Librivox in a wonderful reading
    - _Bicycle Design: An Illustrated History_ by Tony Hadland and Hans-Erhard Lessing --- a Christmas present, I've been thinking about building a recumbent trike
    - _Hermann Zapf and the World He Designed: A Biography_ by Jerry Kelly
    - _Palatino: The Natural History of a Typeface_ by Robert Bringhurst
    - _The Visual History of Type_ by Paul McNeil
    - _Quality is Contagious: John Economaki & Bridge City Tool Works_ 36 Years Through the Lens of Joe Felzman
    - _Virtuoso: The Tool Cabinet and Workbench of Henry O. Studley_ by Donald C. Williams --- despite the typos, this is a fabulous book --- I'm hoping it and _The Toolbox Book_ by Jim Tolpin will inform my organizing my tools into a useful state before retirement, then when I retire, I hope to build a replica of Studley's Tool Cabinet
    - _Understanding Wood: A Craftsman's Guide to Wood Technology_ by R. Bruce Hoadley

    and lastly, need to find time to read _Selected Papers on Computer Languages_ by Dr. Donald E. Knuth which I picked up at the recent TeX User's Group Conference --- if nothing else I should pencil in all the corrections/improvements from https://www-cs-faculty.stanford.edu/~knuth/cl.html
