"Resolutions are a waste of time," he said. "Why make unrealistic promises to yourself that you know you're not going to keep? If you want to change something about yourself, what's wrong with April or August?"
Cryoburn by Lois McMaster Bujold is the next adventure of Miles Vorkosigan in this long running series. Miles is 39 and finally coming into his own as a happy family man and an Imperial Auditor. The book also came with a CD that includes all but one of the previous books in the Vorkosigan series in a variety of electronic formats.
Mouse and Dragon by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller is a book that fills in a gap in their long-running Liaden series. Going into the story, people who have followed along with the series from the beginning know how it must end. But reading it expands on the bare facts and enriches the series.
If you do not already follow these series but love character driven science fiction, I can't recommend them highly enough. The Liaden Universe books are being republished in omnibus editions from Baen Books. This would be a great time to give them a try.
