Tip of the iceberg, my friend. I think we know how crazy you are.
HAR! tip - You have no idea...
just ran across this "library" -- https://z-lib.org/ As far as I can tell, there aren't time limits on 'borrowing' hence my quotation marks. It's free but of course, donations are welcome (both monetary and e-books).
I'd be careful with this. From some of their content, they are certainly a pirate site, registered (according to Whois) in Moscow. Just sayin'
Thanks for the heads-up…
via Hoopla, I'm reading Category Five. Philip Donlay. It's several years old (2004), but that doesn't really come into play. Short synopsis: due to climate change, and likely other unknown factors, a monster hurricane is on a path to (basically) kill tens of thousands of people when it hits NYC with a 100-foot tidal surge (up both the Hudson and East Rivers) and ferocious sustained tornado-strength winds. The Gov't. has a plan to use a 115 megaton H-bomb to 'kill' the hurricane. It's not just a techno-thriller, though -- human interaction runs through it, former lovers coming together who are the principals in the story and the hurricane-killing.
Left lots out -- features Donovan Nash, a recurring hero in Donlay's novels. A good read -- +elebenty!
one of Book Bubs listings for today. I read the free sample, and just bought the book on Google Play. It's also available on Kobo for the same price of 99¢, as well as Amazon, B&N, and Apple.
If She Had Stayed
By Diane Byington
A gripping speculative thriller: After discovering one of Nikola Tesla’s long-lost journals, museum director Kaley uses his instructions to build her own time machine. But her trip into her past will dislodge dark secrets that were never meant to be revealed…
And I got that one, too. I like it when someone else does all the legwork and I just click "Buy".
Free is just an added bonus, then?
Yes! Amazon got 99¢ out of me this time. But it was easy. And apparently so was I.
