Kindle books

I lost track of my reading list tab, because it was too hard to keep it up to date.  But I'm also finding that my Kindle collection is getting out of control, and because I read it on three different devices from time to time, it doesn't manage itself as well as I'd like; it's hard to see for sure what I've read at a glance and what I've partly read, or whatever.  So, I thought I'd create a catalog.  It'll be long, and won't interest anyone but me, I don't think.  But nevertheless, here it is.  I'll highlight in orange anything I've already read, in yellow anything that I've started but abandoned (most likely because I didn't like it, but occasionally I just lost my place and want to go back) and in green the ones I want to prioritize to read next.  Pale blue are the ones I'm still reading.

  • Ivanhoe, Sir Walter Scott (currently reading)
  • Albion Lost, Richard Fox 
  • Galaxy's Edge: Legionnaire, Jason Anspach and Nick Cole
  • The Secret Kings, Brian Niemeier
  • 8 Novels + 8 Short Stories, A. Merritt (sadly, I find that I already have the two I most wanted, so this purchase was superfluous.)
  • Mission Pack 1 (Black Ocean), J.S. Morin (read two of the four books in the anthology.  One day will probably return to.)

  • The Bleak December, Kevin G. Summers
  • Breaking Through: Second Star, Josh Hayes
  • Hell's Rejects, M. R. Forbes

Just a note--Book 4 of the Cal Corwin, Private Eye series comes (The Girl in the Morgue) out in about 10 days (it's in pre-order), and I see you've read Loose Ends and liked it, so so it might behoove you to read books 2 (In A Bind), 3 (Slipknot) and the novelette Off The Leash and then pick up Book 4. If you're rather spend time than money, I do have a free-read-and-review system if you contact me via my website (davidvandykeauthor.com).

I'll be interested to see what you think about the Plague Wars series.

Cheers!
