I’d put Station Eleven more in the speculative fiction genre than hard sf, and perhaps that is the issue if your group is looking for funny aliens or someone other than us to be the bad guy. Not sure what I could suggest for you as a group read.

Let’s ask: What have you read so far as a group, and what was the group’s thought on the works? Maybe that will help us make suggestions.

Okami applewood got this for me for Christmas, and yes, he has played it more than I have. I take my time.

Minecraft Bees are cute. My current world is giving me lots of goodies. I am happy.

The Outer Worlds On my second play through, and having fun being just a bit of a dick.

Fallout Been considering starting a new play through of FO4 because while I kinda want 76 I don’t do online gaming sooooo eh.

I haven’t made any Viking knit in ages, or thought much about it either. Now you’re making me want to, even if it will probably look like crap. I wonder if I still have the book that I learned that and Byzantine chain from?

That watch with Angie on the back has a neat shape. I am curious as to what the front looks like? I have an old watch that I picked up at a yard sale, a wind up, that still runs, I had the clear bit replaced because it was pretty raggedy. The guy that worked on it was pretty surprised to see it still running. I don’t wear it often, mostly if I am dressed up.

Funnily enough I think I know how to fix this in windows 10 in command line but my only laptop that has both windows 10 and the required card reader hasn’t been wanting to boot into win 10. (And I haven’t felt like reinstalling. Maybe this weekend?) It’s been ages since I have played with a partition manager in Linux. Thanks for the tips, you kept me from having to play with the google!

Gotcha covered with the recs, yo! Good luck on your journey to reading more! I started this year’s fiction reading off with Asimov’s Foundation Trilogy, and am finishing up Feynman’s “The Meaning Of It All” on the non-fiction front, before I start tackling the content of the post below:

Exactly! Most of the books I read this year turned out to be shorter than what I normally read so I got through extra stuff. I could definitely do more but I tend to hit points in my year where my work melts my brain and I have no extra mental capacity for reading. Makes me sad. Maybe I should switch to something really easy during those periods?
