I know people who fix defective ebooks by removing the DRM worm in them, just in case someone in the future thinks they no longer own the book they paid for.

So with Babel-17 done and dusted I looked further into the aforementioned box and was overjoyed to see another few childhood favourites.

I’ve just started Ursula Le Guin’s ‘Wizard of Earthsea’ and also have laid up several Conan novels. IIRC ‘Conan the Buccaneer’ was one of my favourites so that’ll be next on the list.

I’ve also been reading ‘World War Z - An Oral History of the Zombie War’ at work (yes, I’m lucky and no, I’m not Homer Simpson). I’m around two thirds of the way through it and in truth I’m finding it a little overly narrative and predictable, but I’ll finish it anyway.

Finished The Lost Continent: Travels in Small-Town America by Bill Bryson. The gist: The writer spent his kid and teen years in Des Moines, Iowa and his adult working and family-raising years in England. He then goes back to mom’s house in Des Moines and starts a solo road trip around rural America in an old economy car he borrowed from mom. (He’s a professional magazines, newspapers, whatever writer, and obviously looking for some content a full length novel). Every day’s funny, some parts are LOL absurd funny. I’d recommend it.

Anyone read this series? The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel by Michael Scott. My young and smart co-worker said it was amazing. Any intel?

(…prosperity in what, when those entities incite others to interfere prosperity by economic boycott)

(Extremely important is to detect how certain entities try to lead into despair and negativity and lack of faith, while misrepresenting their action as strong, and proper mindset, while hypocrites, since it does happen from military as well…)
