A surprisingly good series. This was a fitting conclusion.

I‘ve heard Nikki speak several times in person and I can say that her passion for what she does comes across in her sections of the book just like it did when I heard her speak. A great resource.

I‘m an Apple guy through and through, but I loved this. It‘s an interesting look at a company in transition through the eyes of its CEO.

It was so great to be back in this world. I‘ve missed Day and June. The addition of Eden‘s voice was wonderful!

JanuarieTimewalker13 Stacking! I enjoyed The Legend Series! 2mo

JanuarieTimewalker13 Great!! Somehow, I must refresh my memory of it. It‘s been over 5 years since I read the series, I think 2mo

Sky In The Deep was one of my favorites last year, and while I didn‘t enjoy this one quite as much, it was still very good.

SoManyBooksNotEnoughTime is this a sequel to Sky in the Deep? or just same author? 2mo
ssravp @SoManyBooksNotEnoughTime It‘s a sequel. Not direct, but it‘s in the same world. 2mo
SoManyBooksNotEnoughTime @ssravp got it, thank you!! 2mo
ssravp @SoManyBooksNotEnoughTime You‘re welcome! 2mo

The stories are different than Larson‘s, but Lagercrantz does just as good of a job with them. Another great entry into this series.

Another immensely satisfying book by Sara Raasch. And a fitting end to the series. On a side note, she is one of the best world builders that I‘ve read in recent memory.

I adore Stevie‘s music. He‘s one of the guitarists that inspired me to start playing. He was gone too soon. “The world misses his music, but I miss my brother.” — Jimmie Vaughan

emz711 Agreed! One of the greats 3mo
Nute Yes! Amazing talent! Sometimes I listen to “Lenny” and “Little Wing” on repeat for over an hour. So many good songs! 3mo

“Good design is actually a lot harder to notice than poor design, in part because good designs fit our needs so well that the design is invisible, serving us without drawing attention to itself. Bad design, on the other hand, screams out its inadequacies, making itself very noticeable.”

I need X and Y recommendations for my A to Z challenge!

Texreader Look for the following tags #letterX and #letterY. Lots of great suggestions there. I used XPD for x, a Cold War thriller. It was long and tough to get through, but I made it! And it was ok. I also bought Sue Grafton‘s X book I‘ll save for next year. I‘ve never read her books so it‘ll be a first (edited) 4mo
Texreader For y I chose a free ebook I downloaded called You Can‘t Make Old Friends. First in a series and I liked it well enough I‘d read the next book. It should be an easier letter for which to find books. 4mo

A random find on Audible. I really enjoyed that analysis of Cap and Tony. 😀 Spoilers abound for both the Civil War comic event, and certain MCU movies.

Taken for what they‘re worth, and not taken too seriously, this book, and it‘s movie adaption are actually really entertaining.

Cortg I've wanted to read this, I just never seem to put a hold on it and read it. Hopefully in the near future! Thanks for reminding me about it.
