    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' :vbwink:

    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.
