  1. Mike – and all – I don’t comment much (as in, hardly ever), but I read File 770 and the comments daily. I appreciate the work you do to provide interesting information and comprehensive updates, I love the articles, the links, the commentary, and the controversy. I adore you people. Seriously. Thanks for being a bright spot during challenging times.

  2. I’ve read the Wells, Jemisin, and Muir; I have the Harrow, Klune, and Novik on Mt. Tsundoku.

    I’m glad you’re here! I, too, find the articles and the commenting community here really contribute to making each day a little brighter for me.

  4. Thanks JJ! 🙂

    Also, I have read the Klune, Novik, Scalzi, Wells (love Murderbot), and Schwab so far. Really enjoyed the Invisible Life of Addie LaRue. Next up for me is Mexican Gothic.
