Finished the Omnibus edition of Wool last night.
Excellent read. Had me on the edge of my seat a few times.

Just got the 2nd lot of the 3 books in the Shift series.
They're apparently set before the Wool stories.
And then it's Dust, which wraps up the whole thing... which I also just got. :D

I started Bill Bryson's - A Short History of Nearly Everything last night as a filler between the Wool & Shift books.
It's good. ;)

@ siteguru... Did the stuff you uploaded to Mr.Clark's DB not count against your DB account?

I doubt it ... I just have the free account and that 7z file is more than my allowance, which I think is just 2GB?

That's odd. I have the same 2.5GB free account which I had 1.7GB of stuff in,
but then it told me I was over by 3.5GB???

Hmm. Just logged in and it tells me "Your personal Dropbox is full. Get more space". And when I look at the drop-down against my account name it says "3.7GB of 2GB used".

If I delete the share, will it delete the 7z file? (I don't need access to it ... now that I've uploaded then all I'd want is read access).

OK - I've deleted my link to the share and my usage has gone back to normal. Perhaps someone can post the public share link in here?

Any good book recommendations?

I finished all The Wool books, and The Martian, they was good.
Just finished - Nothing Is True and Everything Is Possible: The Surreal Heart of the New Russia by Peter Pomerantsev.
That was interesting. Russia is fucked up.

I'm currently reading - New Spring: The Novel by Robert Jordan but I'm not sure if it's doing it for me.

I have: Former People: The Final Days of the Russian Aristocracy by Douglas Smith &
Sex Trafficking: Inside the Business of Modern Slavery By Kara, Siddharth lined up.

I'm reading the Honor Harrington books at the moment. Everyone describes them as "Horatio Hornblower... IN SPAAAAAACE!". But I haven't read them, so I can't comment. But as military sci-fi, they hit the spot.

Like all good dealers, the first hit is free...

On Basilisk Station

(actually, book 2, The Honor of the Queen is free too...)

Cool, thanks. I'll look into those.
