Anyway, this week I ended up buying two books:
Scourge of God: A Novel Of The Change
S. M. Stirling
The amazon.com product description:
Rudi MacKenzie continues his journey toward Nantucket, where he hopes to learn the truth behind The Change that rendered technology across the globe inoperable. But one fanatical officer in the Sword of The Prophet has been dispatched on a mission-to stop Rudi from reaching Nantucket by any means necessary...The other book I bought was Journey To The Center Of The Earth by Jules Verne for my Kobo. First time I've bought a book for it to date.
