After finishing the rest of the Nightflyers and other Stories by George R.R. Martin I continued with the first of the Murderbot Diaries, All System Red, by Martha Wells. It is a great read and I will surely read the remaining stories. I’m currently just wondering whether I buy them or simply use one month of Storytel, which would in fact be the cheaper option. Not sure yet.
While I think about that, I’m listening the Audible original audio-drama Alien – Out Of The Shadows. I’m half-way through and so far it is a fun listen.
In terms of podcast listening, I kept up with Limetown and some episodes of Daniel and Jorge explain the Universe which were very informative and fun.
I got lots of reading done during the last few days. First I finished the audiobook of George R.R. Martin’s Nightflyers and enjoyed the story and reading a lot. Somehow the story had this “Shining-vibe” to it. Also I started to read (as in actually reading) V.E.Schwab’s first book in the Villians series – Vicious and have a hard time putting it down. What a great and fast read and I guess I will be through it within this week.
Got me a few more audio-books at the current Audible 2-for-1-sale. Scalzi: The Androids Dream & Agent to the Stars, Stephenson: The Diamond Age and the Complete Blackwater Saga by Michael McDowell. Now I only need the time to listen to them. 📚
The other day I finished the audiobook of Stephen Fry’s Mythos. It was both educating and entertaining. It was bit difficult to follow the names of all the gods. After looking a bit around I decided to continue with the audiobook of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale. 📚
Finished reading John Scalzi’s Your Hatemail will be Graded last night and continued right away with more Scalzi: The Last Colony (Old Man’s War Book 3). It’s a great series so far and I’m looking forward to see how it continues. 📚
I have been listening to audiobooks plenty before but since I started to use Storytel, the audiobook streaming thingy I wrote earlier about, I have been a bit on binge.
After having finished Neil DeGrasse Tyson’s Astrophysics for People in a Hurry I continued re-reading Douglas Adams’s Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy read by Stephen Fry. I enjoyed how his reading brought the book to life, which also reminded me how much I liked his podcast when it was still around.

Many things work better for me when I have a goal, a deadline or something like this and finding motivation for reading is not that different. Now that I finished my last book it is time to think what I want to read next.
Yes, there is a lot of Scalzi in this list, but hey, he’s great and the first two books are like a collection of blog posts from this site (which is actually a great read in itself).
Finished Persepolis Rising – Expanse #7 today. It was as good as the rest of the series and apparently the first of the last three books in this series. Can’t wait to see how all of this comes to an end.📚
