I definitely recommend switching over to Trevor.

The way he describes the insanity of Apartheid (Chinese people are considered "black", while Japanese are considered "white") is absurd, but educational.

Well, I stopped reading "Jefferson's Daughter" when I was about halfway through - page 161 - after 8 days. I'll go back to it at a later date.

I switched over to a novel by Robert Dugoni - "A Steep Price" book #6 in the Tracy Crosswhite series. Finished that one and started "Here To Stay" by Mark Edwards. This was one of the free books offered by Amazon Prime sometime in 2019. I read one other book by this same author a few years ago. Most likely when I finish this one I'll try "Jefferson's Daughters" again. If that doesn't work I'll try Trevor's book. I tend to read one non-fiction for every two fictions. It's not really intentional, it just seems to happen that way.

I've read a few - I liked Magpie so got the sequel and then the third in that series - never finished the last one lol. House Guest was ok but it's been a while so I cannot recall if I actually enjoyed reading it. How is Here to Stay feeling?

I finished it in 4 days. It had a different ending than what I was expecting. The other book I read by him was "Follow You Home" back in 2017. I recall it being "okay" but not something where I wanted to read more books by the same author. After reading this one, yes I want to read more of his books.

I forgot to mention - "Here to Stay" was my Amazon Prime free selection from Aug. 2019. I have to say it was one of the better free books I've read so far.

Also, I decided to go straight to Trevor Noah's "Born a Crime". I'm just not ready to tackle the second half of "Jefferson's Daughters" yet.

Oh- let me know how you like that as well. I purchased Here to Stay  this evening.

Great, thanks! Most often, I find recommendations with the help of book bloggers that I follow on YouTube or Instagram. I never thought that even book bloggers on Instagram could be helpful in terms of book recommendations or teaching. Recently, by the way, with the help of one of these bloggers, I learned about the service https://assignmentbro.com/us/finance-homework-help, which helps me with my financial homework, especially with regard to complex calculations.

I've come to a halt in my reading because I have a problem. I have three books I really, really want to read right now, and can't decide which one to start with because I want to start with all three! Help me out, dear people. Choose a book for me.

Chaos on CatNet by Naomi Kritzer

This is a follow up to a favourite book of last year, Catfishing on CatNet. I loved this book so much and can't wait to follow the further adventures of CheshireCat and friends.

Fugitive Telemetry by Martha Wells

This is the sixth book in the Murderbot Diaries series. I love, love, love Murderbot. Another Murderbot story? Yes please.

Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir

A book that I feel in love with a few years back was The Martian by Andy Weir. It instantly went on my list of most favourite books of all time and has already been re-read a number of times.  Now with a new book out, which everyone is saying has the same magic as his first book, I can't wait to get started on it.

So, people, help me out. Pick one of these books for me to read as I am stalled and can't make a decision.

I have to say ... picking out the next book to read is one my biggest problems also. There are so many waiting for me on my Kindle ... which one do I pick?? LOL

Chaos on CatNet by Naomi Kritzer

This one sounds good and like you really want to read it. But how often does this author write books for this series? I just checked and it looks like there was 2 years between the first and second books. You might want to wait on this one. Just my opinion.

Fugitive Telemetry by Martha Wells

You said, "This is the sixth book in the Murderbot Diaries series." It looks like this series started in 2017. So that's pretty good ... six books in 4 years. Consider this one because you probably won't have to wait as long for the next in the series.

Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir

OMG! I absolutely loved The Martian by this author. I have this one on my list to watch for it on sale. But that's not going to happen soon since it just came out. Just curious, have you read Artemis by Weir?? That's another one I'm watching for. His books aren't a series based ... so you can wait on this one or go ahead. 

I'm not much help. But as I said at the beginning of this, it's always hard for me to pick a new book to read. But one thing I know when you can read a new book in a series it feels like "coming home" where you are comfortable. I think I just said to read the new Murderbot book. LOL
