Reflections on what I am reading

Autonomous by Annalee Newitz Banner

Autonomous by Annalee Newitz — Latest Read

Finished up Autonomous by Annalee Newitz earlier this week. For the past year, I have been trying to blend more recent works of fiction into my reading list. When I read the blurb, it was obvious the book would be advocating strong political and social positions, but the reviews indicated it was a book worth reading.

Penshaw by LJ Ross is the thirteenth book in her DCI Ryan series. This one takes you into the history of the miners' strike in the 1980s.
Chasing Fireflies by Charles Martin Banner

Chasing Fireflies — Latest Read

Chasing Fireflies by Charles Martin was an interesting summer read. Martin is a Florida author and this 2008 book was ranking pretty consistently on the Kindle lists, so I decided to check it out.
Author Douglas Richards and cover of Infinity Born

Infinity Born — Latest Read

Just finished up Infinity Born by Douglas E. Richards. It is a "near-future science fiction thriller" that explores what could happen if we were able to create a sentient artificial intelligence.
The Moor by LJ Ross Banner

Self Reliance by Ralph Waldo Emerson Cover (The Domino Project) and Seth Godin

Self Reliance (The Domino Project) — Latest Read

As I have gotten back into a daily reading habit since 2018, my Kindle bookshelf has gotten a bit crowded. Decided I would knock out a few books like Self Reliance that had been there for a long time.
