    Relic of Empire - Forbidden Borders #2 is plus 30 chapters and 626 pages of pure Space Opera magic.

    We pick up the Space Opera exactly where book 1 left off. And the next 350ish pages has many many characters stopping to examine the events that led to their current situation. I will not say some 'catching up' is not good, but Gear used more than 100 pages doing this. Although often necessary for characters off the main story line, the sheer amount of pages struck me as excessive.

    But still this book is a typical bridge of a trilogy... Gear told a great story in book 1 and had to tear that down in book 2 to set up the final story in book 3 Counter Measures.

    read a 'toilet book' titled My Life In & Out of the Rough by John Daly and ghost writer Glen Waggoner

    what is a 'toilet book' ? I define it as a book read exclusively on the throne.

    picked this book up for free in McKays freebie bins. Not sure I got a good deal


    This book was written in an attempt to mitigate the damage to John Daly caused by like his 8th wife's arrest for money laundering. Appears Waggoner took a ride on Dalys bus between tour events. Basically an outline of Dalys life with John filling in some details. You will learn that John liked his momma's chocolate gravy and some about what goes on in the background of a PGA event.

    Basically Daly claims his innocence about the money laundering and he attempts to explain away the other bizarre aspects of his life.

    Not a novel but some brilliant writing and photos nonetheless.

    Thread is also nearly 3 years old and only 6 pages. I'd say it needs all the help it can get.
