30. ProBlogger: Secrets for Blogging Your Way to a Six-Figure Income by Darren Rowse
I'll update this as I read more!
I read Dickson's Dorsai series many years ago, and did enjoy it. While I've pruned my shelves of my younger reading tastes to a great extent, those ones are still there.
The Familias series (Seranno) was much better from a series viewpoint, and the last book didn't seem to be rushed out the door. I liked the character growth throughout that series.
The one book that I don't 'get' by Elizabeth Moon is Speed of Dark. There just wasn't much that I identified with in that book. However, I've given copies to families with autistic children and they've thanked me profusely; so it's an experience thing.
But I also love her space operas. So much fun.
31. The Last Centurion by John Ringo
This is a standalone book with an interesting premise: It's a series of blogposts from about 20 or so years in the future about the double whammy of an epidemic and a climate event that runs counter to current 'politically correct' prediction. The movie would be at least R Rated for language and adult themes.
32. Ghost by John Ringo
33. Kildar by John Ringo
34. Choosers of the Slain by John Ringo
35. Unto the Breach by John Ringo
36. A Deeper Blue by John Ringo
This is a series John Ringo wrote a few years back. I enjoyed the series, but the series has a BDSM undertone that is not always necessary, though is occasionally woven into the story in unexpected ways. These won't be everyone's cup of tea.
37. The Warrior's Edge by Alexander, Groller and Morris
38. Guns, Crime and Freedom by Wayne R. LaPierre
That's it for now. I'll be back soon. :)
