I recently read the Bobiverse trilogy by Dennis Taylor and really enjoyed it. The first book is "We Are Legion (We Are Bob) (Bobiverse, #1)" followed by "For We Are Many (Bobiverse, #2)" and concluded with "All These Worlds (Bobiverse, #3)". I read the paperback versions, but I hear the author narrates the audiobooks and that adds some additional flavor.

Hello. I hear you about Kindle, as my wife loves it and gets her reading material instantly. Unfortunately for myself, I am still “low tech” and prefer the book in hand. LOL

I agree with your sentiment about Miles. One thing that I greatly appreciate from this book is the amount of chaos and struggles (much of this being self-induced) the man faced, but he managed to persevere and carry on. For myself to even imagine how I would have turn out had I lived even 10% of the chaos that Miles did; I believe that I would have either been “carried by 6 or judged by 12”. The human capacity for resilience at times for certain people is truly remarkable, and IMHO Miles represents this to a tee.

Regards

Yes. Think chaos is a good description of Miles' personal life. He was a most complex person. May he RIP (which he never seemed to have in life - like many artists).

Just starting Mike Rapport's "1848". Great backdrop to the Franco-Prussian war and the era leading up to WW1, which Barbara Tuchman has covered so well.

Reading an old Dick Francis; it's Vet's in trouble this time, with only asides to the horse racing world.

Re-reading 'Fate is the Hunter' is a 1961 memoir by aviation writer Ernest K. Gann. (Forget the movie of the same name which imo was rubbish).
