  1. A couple of hours into the audiobook of BABEL. It really grabs you by the lapels and pulls you along.

  2. Re the SFWA Story Bundle, there is a typo in an author’s name. It should read Laura Bickle, not Laura Rickle.

  3. I can definitely recommend:
    Stolen Focus by Johann Hari and Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus

    Two of the Best SF &F were “meh” for me and two I DNF’ed. I’m getting pickier in my old age.
