This year I am really pushing myself to read, and I admit, this group is partly inspired by my recent book lust and encouraging others to get into the spirit of reading a good story or pickup some inspiring or enlightening non-fiction. Crack some Classic Literature or thumb a graphic novel for a quick read.
I welcome you to come over to the Robot x Robot Good Reads Group. Add to the book shelf and share what you are reading. Talk about past reads. Make recommendations. Talk about what you want to read or what’s coming out soon that you are excited about.
Hope you stop by: http://www.goodreads.com/group/show/76902-robot-x-robot-reading-club
For the remaining month of August and all of September – the Robot x Robot Book-to-Read is Leviathan Wakes by James S. A. Corey.
Humanity has colonized the solar system – Mars, the Moon, the Asteroid Belt and beyond – but the stars are still out of our reach.
Jim Holden is XO of an ice miner making runs from the rings of Saturn to the mining stations of the Belt. When he and his crew stumble upon a derelict ship, The Scopuli, they find themselves in possession of a secret they never wanted. A secret that someone is willing to kill for – and kill on a scale unfathomable to Jim and his crew. War is brewing in the system unless he can find out who left the ship and why.
Detective Miller is looking for a girl. One girl in a system of billions, but her parents have money and money talks. When the trail leads him to The Scopuli and rebel sympathizer Holden, he realizes that this girl may be the key to everything.
Holden and Miller must thread the needle between the Earth government, the Outer Planet revolutionaries, and secretive corporations – and the odds are against them. But out in the Belt, the rules are different, and one small ship can change the fate of the universe.
