Take 5: Teen Tech Reads (Karen’s picks)
Here are 5 of my favorite tech reads. Okay, it is technically six because I include both books in this companion series. Others are simply the first in a newly developed series.
Nanotechnology runs amuck. Resistance is futile as competing factions race to utlize nano technology in ways that can enslave the human race.
Doctorow presents an eerily too possible vision of the future where your access to the Internet is taken away if you violate copyright laws.
In the future, the Enders can rent your body in an attempt to try and resist aging.
What if we were simply a large scale computer program being used by a more advanced race? And what if you didn’t make the upgrade?
Hirsch combines the best of Science Fiction and Fantasy in this world that is divided by a rift. One side is tech, the other is magic.
Please share your favorite tech reads in the comments. I love finding new books to read. Also, if you have read any of my faves, please tell me what YOU think of them.
