Re: Books: What are you currently reading?

Just got started on For We Are Many, Bobiverse Book 2. I really enjoyed book 1, We Are Legion (We Are Bob), and book 2 has that same vibe. It has a lot of pop culture homages like Ready Player One, but it is a lot more for flavor and characterization and has much less to do with the plot. If you like humorous science fiction, this series is worth a look.

I really enjoy that series. I can't recall the two parts at the end that you mention, but the series keeps you on your toes.

I've read the first 6 books and a couple of the shorts...love this series. I haven't ventured into the 7 book yet because I heard it jumps many years into the future and I wanted more of the crew where they were only slightly moved forward. So I'm reading all the shorts now.

Win Bigly by Scott Adams. It's a book about the 2016 Trump campaign on the surface. Digging a little deeper, it is a book about persuasion, and it is a fascinating book. If you do any type of persuasive communication, this is a really good book. I got it from the library, and before I was half way through it was on my wish list for a paper copy.

The Fredericksburg Campaign by O'Reilly. I recently went to a lecture by a friend of a friend who now lives down there at the New York Civil War Forum. I had to find and actually dust off the volume, which came out just when I was down there in 2005. Unusualy for me, I never finished it, because the second half is just about the useless attacks against the stone wall, where thousands of Union soldiers were slaughtered uselessly.

I'm almost done, and then I'll go back and read about a lesser known part of the battle, which was actually supposed to be the main attack, led by General Meade. I may do that part of the action on the tabletop with my toy soldiers!

The Lords of Dus series by Lawrence Watt-Evans. Great fantasy series that I borrowed from for a 2nd Edition D&D campaign that I ran over twenty years ago.
