Weekly Journal October 17 – 23 2011

Back to my roots this week. Maybe mid-story roots. I have spent my evenings programming. Javascript and modern HTML is fun and I got to make life simpler and faster with a utility program that shaves hours off creating Modbus device drivers for our programmers and even allow non programmers to do the work.

So sadly I have been doing very little reading this week. I wonder when they are going to make an audio book version of B. V. Larson’s third Star Force novel, Rebellion. The series is entertaining military science fiction.

Looks like a lot of books will arrive next week according to Amazon. I should also be getting my pre-ordered Sony PRS-T1 Ebook Reader next week to but there is a disturbing warning on their site that it is not in stock. 168g is a weight I can live with. I will make a review of the reader as soon as it arrives.

    I’ve spent the last half hour or so exploring your site. What you do is awesome.

    Is there a list anywhere of your favorite books of all time? I haven’t been able to find one, but I’m very curious.

    Hi Eryn,
    Thanks for the kind words. You gave me an idea there…
    There are posts on each annual page with best books of the year but so far I haven’t made any all time list. Good idea.

    Excellent. Thrilled to hear you’ll consider it. I’ve put the top books from the ’10-’11 lists on my to-read queue, but considering that I assume you started reading sci-fi and fantasy long before you started the blog…well, it seems like it would be a tragedy to miss out on anything you considered an all-time favorite.
