New book Tuesday

Echo by Jack McDevitt

Tuesday bring the release of some new books.  Here is what was downloaded to my Kindle early today:

  • Echo by Jack McDevitt.  The latest in the adventures of Alex Benedict.  I haven’t yet finished the Devil’s Eye, but once I complete that one, I’ll put this one on deck.  These are always fun reads because they combine mystery and science fiction, and the universe in which Alex and Chase live is such an optimistic one.
  • The Autobiography of Mark Twain, Volume 1.  I had no idea that Mark Twain wrote a 5,000 page autobiography, and no idea that he requested that it not be published in complete form until 100 years after his death.  Volume 1 has arrived and I’m looking forward to reading it.

I’m still working my way, slowly, through Connie Willis’ wonderful All Clear, which I hope to finish by the end of the month.  With NaNoWriMo and work and various other chores and endeavors, it’s hard to find the time to zip through this one the way I zipped through Blackout.

  1. I finished Echo on Sunday morning and promptly told Jack’s editor that it was one of my favorite books of the year. When you get around to reading it, you should be able to guess why.
