15. My Own Kind of Freedom by Steven Brust (ebook)

Brust wrote a Firefly novel with someone I know written into it. Sadly, it was not amazing - once the novelty wore off, it just didn't work for me.

16. Captain's Fury by Jim Butcher

Book four in the series. I know I read this some time in the past year, but couldn't find it in the booklog. The romance threads are getting too pat for my liking. Still going to read book five now that it's in paperback. Logged here so I have some record of it.

17. Set This House in Order by Matt Ruff

A book about a character with dissociative identity disorder (aka multiple personalities). The premise is interesting, and the initial setup of the protagonist is interesting. Ruff gives the reader enough to set things up before moving on with the story. I thought I knew where it was going, and was only slightly right, which pleases me.



I am now out of free ebooks. Anyone have suggestions for new ones to grab? Ideally, I'm looking for ones where the author wants them distributed for free. I've gone through Cory Doctorow and Peter Watts already.

I'm also going to be through my stack of to-read non-fiction after my next book, so suggestoins there wouldn't be a bad idea either.

I assume you've picked up everything you're interested in from the Baen free library? A huge part of their backcatalog is available as free e-books, in multiple formats.

Yeah - I went through it a few years ago, and ended up not liking most of what I grabbed. I should probably check again, though.

In the non-fiction pile (though I don't know about its availability as an ebook), there's a book that came out recently which I think is called The End of Aid. The author's premise is about the current framework of foreign aid being a detriment to the internal development of the countries receiving it.

Havent read it yet so I don't know if I agree with her arguments or not but I'd be interested to find out what they are.
