The best Adblocker I have found is uBlock Origin. It works in Chrome and Firefox, links are below. This also helps protect you against malware, as malicious ads are a common way that malware gets into a computer.

Scifi Books
August 13, 2022

As a teenager, I read a LOT of books, especially Science Fiction. I no longer have time to read with my eyes, but I listen to audiobooks.

My favorite Scifi book series starts with Pandora's Star by Peter F. Hamilton.
His solo book Fallen Dragon is also quite good.

Other notable authors:
Ryk Brown
The Second Ship (The Rho Agenda Book 1) by Richard Phillips
