Enter a new time sink...

time to read 2 min | 256 words

image I just bought Empire of Ivory, in both ebook and audio book format.

It came out four days ago, and I can't believe that I let four days pass by without getting that.

Yes, it is that good.

 

I was just getting ready to listen to  Black Powder War, the third part of this series, but with changing times comes changing plans.

Now I intend to read the ebook, hopefully this will take up the rest of the night only, and then listen to Black Powder War and then to Empire of Ivory as an audio book.

I don't have Throne of Jade as an audio book, the story was masterfully told, but I didn't like all the PITA politics that went there, too realistic and far too close to stuff that I had to deal with in the past, so I am skipping that.

I really enjoyed His Majesty Dragon as both an ebook and an audio book, however. I usually don't re-read books at those intervals, but Naomi is a very talented writer. And I am looking forward to that.

 

Right now I have finished listening to We Few from David Weber again (started on the flight, actually), and I am really wishing that this story had more books in it, there are at least two that I can think of.

 

Now I just need to get through some Brail bugs before I can dedicate myself to truly masterful story telling...

Do you read at the computer at all?

Jon Skeet

Very rarely. To be honest, I don't have nearly the time for reading that I'd like to, but when I get the opportunity I like to do it in bed, with real paper.

Too bad that audible.com has first two books in abridge format only.
