      If you like SciFi, the Bobiverse is a pretty good read. I'm on book 2 of the series how.

        The Murderbot Diaries is pretty good as well.

          This is basically my life, except my 16 month old wants me to read each book he brings me a minimum of five times. Luckily they are very short, but for my sanity I wish he would sit for longer books.

            This is why Jesus invented iPads. Reading to kids is for suckers.

              For Sci Fi stuff - Expanse books are amazing. Just finished a trilogy by N K Jemisin call The Fifth Season. Very bizarre, incredibly well written, really unique story. I liked it and my wife absolutely loved it. Anything by Brandon Sanderson is excellent in my opinion. Artemis by Andy Weir (author of The Martian). Good second novel by him.

              Non Sci Fi stuff - Thrillers - reading a book by new author called Between Two Scorpions. Basically a terrorist/spy kind of thriller. Really well written so far. I like the author who writes a lot of conservative political commentary but isn't off the rails and is very witty. History books - I love anything by Jeff Shaara - novelized history novels. Writes primarily about Civil War but has done WW1 and WW2 also along with his latest about Korea called the Frozen Hours (about the Battle of the Chosin Reservoir).

                Horror is great this time of year. I'm a big fan of Paul Tremblay and definitely would recommend starting with A Head Full of Ghosts. Jason Arnopp's The Last Days of Jack Sparks is also fantastic. And I've loved everything I've read by Adam Nevill, The Ritual is probably my favorite. Christopher Buehlman is also a great contemporary horror author - really enjoyed both Those Across the River and The Suicide Motor Club, keep meaning to check out The Lesser Dead. Also would recommend MR Carey's Fellside.

                  I haven't read this yet but my mom just mailed me a copy. It was written by her cousin.
                  This is one of the books I brought with me to Coz to read. I am reading it now.

                    It is on audiobook. I have it if you would like to borrow. Very good listen on the way to work.

                        BUMP!

                        I have 4 unused Audible credits I need to use. I'll scroll up for previous recommendations, but would like new ones. History, Science, and any really good fiction is what I'd be looking for.

                        Thanks!
