    18. Mask of Shadows - Linsey Miller - 4/5. I read Mask of Shadows based on LBM's statement that the book was enjoyable. Only problem was that the book I read was by author Linsey Miller and LBM's was by a different author. Two entirely different books by different authors. In any case I enjoyed the book by linsey Miller. From Amazon: Sallot Leon is a thief, and a good one at that. But gender fluid Sal wants nothing more than to escape the drudgery of life as a highway robber and get closer to the upper-class—and the nobles who destroyed their home. When Sal steals a flyer for an audition to become a member of The Left Hand—the Queen's personal assassins, named after the rings she wears—Sal jumps at the chance to infiltrate the court and get revenge.

    I believe I will continue with her Hainish Universe series after finishing the Earthsea Series. Ursula's foreword in book 5 is awesome. She explains that there has been a number of years between her writing of some of the books in the series and that she has changed between writings and that Earthsea itself has changed. BTW, there is also a book 6.5 of the Earthsea series. i am pretty sure I will continue with her and probably got to the Hainisch Universe series next. Book 5 of Earthsea: Tales of Earthsea Book 6 of Earthsea: The Other Wind Book 6.5 of Earthsea: Daughter of Odren

    16. The Farthest Shore (book 3 of 6 of the Earthsea Series) - Ursula K. Le Guin - 4/5 17. Tehanu (book 4 of 6 of the Earthsea Series) - Ursula K. Le Quin - 4.5 / 6 Why haven’t I heard of her. She is a critically acclaimed author. She has gotten my attention. I am starting book 5 of 6 of her Earthsea series. Book 4, “Tehanu” was exceptional IMHO. Ursula Kroeber Le Guin (/ˈkroʊbər lə ˈɡwɪn/;[1] October 21, 1929 – January 22, 2018) Ursula K. Le Guin - Wikipedia A few clips from Wikipedia: Le Guin's writing was enormously influential in the field of speculative fiction, and has been the subject of intense critical attention. She received numerous accolades, including eight Hugos, six Nebulas, and twenty-two Locus Awards, and in 2003 became the second woman honored as a Grand Master of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. The U.S. Library of Congress named her a Living Legend in 2000, and in 2014, she won the National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. Le Guin influenced many other authors, including Booker Prize winner Salman Rushdie, David Mitchell, Neil Gaiman, and Iain Banks. After her death in 2018, critic John Clute wrote that Le Guin had "presided over American science fiction for nearly half a century",[5] while author Michael Chabon referred to her as the "greatest American writer of her generation".[6][7]

    Did you try your library. I checked our library and they have 26 copies available for the kindle. Amazon also has it available in kindle format. I see where Project Hail Mary is also under development as a movie starring Ryan Gosling.

    It normally takes me about 3 days to make the drive but sometimes I push it and make the drive in 2 days. I copied this from the menu at Beall's Lobster Pier in Southwest Harbor ( located near Bar Harbor). it is about the same price to order a lobster dinner where the restaurant removes the shell and you get all the meat. The price is high this year, usually it is somewhat cheaper. Steamed Lobster by the Pound Butters Please choose up to 1 (1 selected) 1.50-1.99 Pounds +$31.99 2.00-2.49 Pounds -Out of stock- 2.50-2.99 Pounds -Out of stock- I almost always have a lobster dinner every day I am in Maine and also have a lobster roll at least 2 days out of 6 for lunch. This is an article on the high cost this year. Read the whole article as there is one establishment that is selling 1 lb lobster for $9.99. Usually a lobster dinner will consist of 11/4 lb lobster minimum. Maine restaurants, markets raise prices over cost of lobster | WGME

    We are planning on a trip to Maine (Bar Harbor mainly ). I never get enough of lobster plus the scenery along the coast is beautiful. Love Maine. The drive up and back is long though, over 1000 miles each way.
