    Trying to read the Witcher books. But the early ones being short stories compiled into a book, I find myself reading one of the short stories, putting the book down, and forgetting it for a week because I feel like I finished it even though I'm only, physically, half way through.

    Persepolis Rising - book seven

    Anyone else think book six was written as though they had initially planned it as the series finale?

    @David, re: the Expanse books

    It has felt to me like the last couple of books have been a little bit less coherent in terms of the overarching plot. That said, I believe that they always intended it to be nine-book series (and certainly as far back as Cibola Burn they talked about it being 9 books).

    I didn't know that was a series of books. I remember a short-lived TV series and just assumed that's all it was.

    Didn't know that, thanks.

    It's just the end of Babylon's Ashes felt like "and they all lived happily ever after".

    Part way through Natives: Race & Class in the Ruins of Empire which I'm enjoying.
    Just finished Why I'm not longer talking to white people about race which I thought was good, and I probably would have found more eye opening if I hadn't already read some of Natives.
    About to start Black Tudors The Untold Story

    Always been a fiction guy, so feels good to be able to read some stuff for education.

    I finished Dune by Frank Herbert and started reading The Five by Hallie Rubenhold.

    Earlier I finished both books by Alma Katsu (The Hunger and The Deep). Both brilliant reads.
