Not Quite Kindle / Vegetarian main dish that's actually tasty?
« on: December 08, 2017, 06:09:44 AM »
Anybody got any good recipes?

There's a decent chance Christmas dinner will be at my house and I plan to get a beef roast. But there's at least one relative who's vegetarian so I'd like to have something for her as well so she's not just stuck eating many side dishes. :) I'd ideally like something that the other non-vegetarians won't turn their noses up as well, and I'd prefer if it wasn't too 'out-there'. I'm not going to have time to go searching for unusual ingredients. :)

Thanks in advance for any suggestions! :D

The Book Corner / "Most Read" kindle books, per Amazon
« on: November 16, 2017, 05:19:39 AM »

I guess I'm an outlier -- I've not read any of them.

And, actually, though the headline says "Most Read", the first paragraph says "best selling". Which, as we all know, ain't necessarily the same thing! :o ;)

One of the complaints about this feature with the Voyage is that, while it does adjust, the user may find that it's still too bright or not bright enough. If you're having the same issue with the Oasis17, here's a way to 'train' your device so that as it adjusts it uses light levels that will work for you.

With the auto adjust setting turned, on, go into your darkest room and set the light at the level you would want to use with that level of ambient light. Be sure to give your eyes time, as well, to adjust.

Then go to the brightest place you'll read -- outside in the sunlight or whatever. Again, set the lighting level to what's comfortable for you there.

Once you've done this, your Oasis now should not go lower than the lowest you set, nor higher than the highest you set.

I've found two; I expect there will be more:

This one is the kind the kindle slips in so you see the leather cover around the frame of the screen. Multiple colors.

This is the 'smart shell' type that should snap to the Oasis. Also, multiple colors.

Both are currently priced at $7.95 plus $5.95 for shipping. I've not heard of IVSO before as a kindle cover company . . . . The second is the sort of thing I'm looking for, but I think I'll wait until some are actually manufactured/purchased/reviewed.

We're 10 days from release day, so I figured it was about time to start this thread. ;D

If you wish, let everyone know if you ordered one (when), which you ordered, and when you expect it to be delivered. You may also share whether or not you're a Prime customer or if you paid for quicker shipping. I'll start.

Ordered on the day it was announced, October 11
8GB, WiFi only, Special offers
No cover ordered
Delivery expected on release day, October 31
I am a Prime customer, used 'standard' 2 day shipping -- didn't pay for faster.
