The book where they're looking for Ciri is good.

Clive Cussler passes away at 88. One of my favorite authors growing up. Still have 20 or so Dirk Pitt novels on the bookshelf.

your answers are weird man, like you've read them and not read them :lol:

atm each chapter is a random short adventure, does it carry on like that for 5-6 books or does a narrative element emerge at some point?  if it's the former i'm out

First two books are short stories. Third book (Blood of Elves) onwards are novels.

World Book day yesterday. It seems to be more World dress up day for kids. The Hulk and the transformer Bumblebee were two of the outfits I've seen pictures of. That's stretching the "book" character definition.
Thier is not a word. "Their" is the correct spelling.

Aye, people should be dressed up like Raskolnikov, axe-in-hand.

Just finished A Scanner Darkly, enjoyed it. Starting The Outsider by Camus next.
A splatterhouse turd done in the manky toilets of a discotheque, brought on my the consumption of cowies or toot.

One of my favourites  :thup: I'm currently reading "The Plague" by him in light of the coronavirus. Topical reading.

The Path To Unfreedom by Timothy Snyder.

Well respected modern historian on the Russian mindset, the hows and the whys of Russian Cyber warfare mainly since Putin took charge The final section on Trump is frightening g as weve actually watched it play out and in a smaller way in this country.
Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.
