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.

Bookmarklets
January 21, 2021
Bookmarklets are simple little bookmarks, which you click and they do some action on the current webpage you have loaded. You need to create a new bookmark, and copy and paste the code into it. Then just click on the bookmark while you are on a website to use it.

Remove Paywall from websites, also induce an archive of the webpage if it hasn't been saved on https://archive.today
javascript:void(open('http://archive.today/?run=1&url='+encodeURIComponent(document.location)));...<Too long, click to read the rest>

Scifi Books
January 21, 2021

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
