These Days

I’m working from home, caring for the kiddo, and trying to give my fellow citizen a wide berth, given the circumstances. We all need a break right now. And what I can offer you all is free e-books to distract you from what’s hopefully just a stressful little bottleneck in our shared history. Pick a book and message me which one you’d like, the format, and where I should send them.

“it may sound strange, but I think atheists are the most religious people in the world.”
Colin Dodds, Windfall

“It’s the million-dollar question: How do you get between someone and their self-destruction?”
Colin Dodds, Another Broken Wizard

“Sometimes a streak of bad luck and bad decisions will persist mercilessly for years at a stretch. After a while, it all kind of bounces off you. It still hurts, but you don’t mind it. And you become so uninvested that you don’t even blink when things fall to pieces.”
Colin Dodds, The Last Bad Job
