What is your e-reading device of choice?
I typically read on either a Kobo or Kindle app on my iPad. I also have an older version of the Kindle, which I use to take out a monthly Amazon Prime loan.

The Reset
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 79,500. Language: English. Published: March 3, 2014. Categories: Fiction » Science fiction » Utopias & dystopias, Fiction » Science fiction » Apocalyptic
The Reset is a story of perseverance. It examines a future in which fragmentation and devolution have decimated society, and in which terrorism represents the final desperate attempt at shuffling the deck. With thematic elements similar to Stephen King’s The Stand and Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, it’s a post-apocalyptic story about the survivors of terrorism and their impulse to rebuild.
