Fair enough.

Incidentally, I looked back, and I have read a few of his books. The collaborations with Ringo on the "Looking Glass" series are mostly fine (yeah, there are a few moments, but a lot of those depend on the reader's interpretation of events that aren't clearly stated). I've also read Von Neumann's War, which was fairly good, and I don't remember being any more "right" (politically) than most of Jon Ringo's offerings.

Beyond that I wouldn't care to venture a comment, except that there are several books of his that I've rejected reading based on the cover blurbs.

You were wise to do so, unless you happen to be a fan of extremely nasty and explicit sadomasochistic sex scenes, which personally I am not.

Not so much, no.

This was an interesting topic. I didn't even realize that you could see a list of everything you'd bought from Baen. Now I wish I hadn't

$1020 OMG. I knew it was a lot, but not that much. Plus I get the Universe, and I paid extra to help it get started. And I just found the web site for the Gettyburg Gazette, and yes I did throw down some more money.

This doesn't include other e-books that I've bought. Nowhere near that much though.

1.20$ at mobipocket, beat that!
Freebies and PG(and of course MR) are just way too time consuming, especially if university likes to be visited from time to time

That looks like an interesting (and oh, so unexpensive!) title, how did you like it ?

200 Books and Counting...

I have been buying e-books since 1998 (or so): Started with a Palm Pilot, then Handspring (Visor Deluxe and Visor Pro), then Palm Tungsten E and E2. Now I use my beloved eBookwise, and am waiting for the Astak machines before I purchase an e-ink machine.

Best estimate: 200 books and lots of short stories. Thank goodness for the local library - I'm a compulsive reader, and can't afford my habit otherwise...
