I just started reading The Girl Without Magic (The Chronicles of Maggie Trent Book 1) by Megan O’Russell.📚
📚 Excited to dig in to The Price of Tomorrow, at a time when the US Fed is printing trillions of dollars out of thin air.
📚 Tonight we had our second meeting for Android Book Club. First meeting was social but tonight we reviewed chapters 1-3. Lots of great questions and observations. Next week chapters 4-6 due. Still room for a few more people if anyone wants in.
I just finished reading Push Back: After the EMP (Disruption Trilogy Book 2) by R.E. McDermott.📚
🔖 📚 I found myself wanting to read so many of the books on Book Riot’s Best Books of 2020 So Far list that I decided it makes more sense to bookmark the whole list than to add each title individually.
Hmmm, Love Notes: A Mimi Patterson/Gianna Maglione Mystery by Penny Mickelbury just wasn’t very good. Biggest flaw was lack of ‘breaks’ between two character stories. Long sentences too packed with ‘stuff’. Worthy notions poorly expressed. I won’t buy more by this author. 📚
Seems I bought Kindle ☛ Barbara Marr Mysteries Boxed Set back in January 2015 for $0.95, read part and stopped. Picked it up again, read a bit more, and have now deleted it. Not that interesting, not funny. Clearly just not to my taste. 📚
No Good Reason (The Dark Peak Series Book 1) by Cari Hunter was a darn good mystery story. As it was apparently the first time I read it. I was surpised when my Kindle told me I’d already read it, but I did recall bits and pieces as I went along. Excellent read — both times. 📚
I just started reading Promises To Keep: After the EMP (Disruption Trilogy Book 3) by R.E. McDermott.📚
I just finished reading Network Effect: A Murderbot Novel (The Murderbot Diaries Book 5) by Martha Wells.📚
From NPR: A Competition To Finish Louisa May Alcott’s Story - I mean why have a competition when you could just hire Mary Robinette Kowal? 📚
Want to help buy me more books to use as a pastor-theologian and Managing Editor of Anglican Compass? I set up a fundraiser to upgrade my Anglican Logos Bible Software package. 📚📚📚
✏️📚👨💻 Kotlin Tools for Android Book Club
A quick tour of some of the tools you’ll want to use to help learn Kotlin.
📚 We have 5 people so far for the Android Book Club (for iOS Developers). Tonight is our first meeting, a social night to say hello and review tools. Would love to add a few more people. Join us!
📚 Jason from @Promptworks is writing a book.
Whether you’re just starting out as a developer or curious about pair programming, Jason Garber’s hands-on guide takes the mystery out of effective pairing.
movieStar also got a present today, ‘Nico’, the amazing book from Studio Nozes.
It’s a delicious book written and drawn by Maria Walnut, when she became a mom and couldn’t sleep.
This book should be required reading for all white Americans trying to educate ourselves about systemic racism. It is not an easy read, nor should it be.
📚 Just finished reading The Power by Naomi Alderman. It’s so good and I want to write about it in light of some articles I read recently about the end of #girlboss culture. I hope I’ll get to it tomorrow.
📚 Finished reading The Pleasures of Reading in an Age of Distraction by Alan Jacobs (@ayjay)
Another one I enjoyed and hope to write more about soon.
The promise of politics is that, within and through our differences, some form of common life can be discovered. But if the process of discovery is to be faithful, hopeful, and loving, we must render ourselves vulnerable to others we don’t understand.
📚 This is a book club dedicated to learning Kotlin and Android application development. Specifically, I am hoping to attract current iOS developers to help shape the conversations at the weekly meetings.
📚Based on the prologue I read last night, which was a lot of fun, I think the next novel I’m going to read is Dan Moren’s “The Caledonian Gambit.” I hope I can stick with it. Lately, I have been starting books and dropping them well before finishing them.
I need to be careful what I read in the hours before bed. Scared to Death (Detective Kay Hunter murder mystery series Book 1) is a thriller with too many (for my taste) overly detailed descriptions of terror and torture of a young woman. I found a nice Cozy for night reading. 📚
Last week I read The Crossing Places: The Dr Ruth Galloway Mysteries 1. I was ambivalent about it as I read, but really didn’t get on with the ending. I very much disliked the several creepy characters. I won’t be buying more of this series. 📚
Hmmm, Scared to Death was a book I read to the end, but I’m not sure I’ll buy any others in the series. The murder mystery was fine, but some moderately graphic scenes of torture and terror of a young woman from the bad-guy’s point of view, aren’t something I like to read. 📚
