Not sure how old or new this video is but I thought some writers may like it, or readers! I personally thought it was a great interview. :)

The Book Corner / Do you mind swearing in books?
« on: July 14, 2013, 07:06:43 pm »
I hope this is the right place to post this question.
I just finished reading a book called Undrawn. The main character, well really most of the people in the book swore a LOT! F*** was used on almost every page minimum once, and GD was used several times, I once counted 5 times in 3 sentences. I know I swear sometimes and I don't mind the occasional swearing in books but this was really excessive! Am I being way to picky about this? I am not sure I would have loved the book without it but I can tell you I would not have hated it AS much. Thanks for your thoughts.

Let's Talk Kindle! / Paperwhite page number issues
« on: July 10, 2013, 07:48:56 pm »
I have a paperwhite and I get books that say on the product page that they should have real page numbers. When I read them on the Kindle app on my Iphone the page numbers show, when I read them on my kindle they don't. Does anyone have any suggestions? Should I just call customer service?

Writers' Cafe / How not to ask for a review!
« on: February 06, 2013, 02:37:57 pm »
 I got a message today that left a horrible taste in my mouth! I don't mind reviewing books that I am actually interested in but when the book doesn't interest me I don't see what the issue is in declining.
The topic was HI, willing to help a dying author?
He proceed to tell me that his bank account is dead and he needs reviews on his books. Well I looked at the books and I was not interested so I told him I was not interested in his books and good luck on getting reviews. He kept sending me messages and finally this message.

Wasn't begging for reviews. As I recall I only asked you once. That highly qualifies as begging. and I offered to give you a Pdt free so I don't see what price has to do with it. Ever heard the saying don't judge a book by its cover? Probably not. considering you only have one photo...revealing quite a bit. You can keep you personal vendatta against me. Ill just remove you and move on to someone more open minded and less judgemental.

This sort of thing just really, really leaves a bad taste in my mouth as I did nothing wrong but I am getting made out to be the bad guy. :(

I got this in my email today and for the life of me I can't seem to find special offers on my fire or my Kindle! I have the Kindle PW not the SO tho, does that mean I can't do this?

Wanted to add that I do not have the fire HD just the first one.

The Book Corner / Need a new great book !
« on: January 15, 2013, 10:42:41 pm »
Can I ask this here? I hope so!? Lately I have been picking maybe one book out of 5 that makes me just not want to put it down and I would like to know some books that changed your life.. ok maybe not changed your life but that are your favorite books for the year, for your life etc.. Ok I know, I know what are my taste well I have lots of taste, from Dracula to The Help. The only thing I don't really like is Romance but that I love to read really, really good ones that do not have this perfect woman that has a flat stomach, perfect breast, every man is falling for her, smart yet seems to get herself in all sorts of trouble! lol. I guess I like more sweet romance? Is that even a real thing? Ok, so anyway I am looking for new books!

The Book Corner / Is this a series or a stand alone novel?
« on: January 15, 2013, 08:49:45 pm »
So I came across this book Snow White Must Die by Nele Neuhaus. Someone told me that it was part of a series but I can't seem to find what one so I am very confused. I don't want to buy it because I HATE, HATE starting a series in the middle but I am not sure how to find the series or if it is one? Goodreads says it is in Bodenstein & Kirchhoff series and please don't laugh but.. in that series I can not read any other title! Are they in another langue or am I just that stupid!

The Book Corner / Series question
« on: December 14, 2012, 04:16:09 pm »
Is this the right place to post this? If not sorry!

Ok so here is my question... is there a website or something like that, that will keep track of when a new book for a series I want to read or am reading comes out? I have a few series I am waiting on and it is a pain to check on all of them was hoping there was one place I could just see all of them.

« on: December 14, 2012, 03:34:53 pm »
I find myself not reading anything unless I can get it on the kindle now. Does anyone else do that? If you can't get it on kindle just not read it.

The Book Corner / Book Blurbs
« on: December 30, 2011, 11:54:04 am »
I hope this is the right place for this. I was just wondering, am I the only one who when reading a book blurb on Amazon or goodreads, when I see a huge wall of text or even a really long blurb I just skip over it? I don't know why I do this, I guess I feel like I am reading a book to find out if I want to read the book! LOL I also hate and won't buy books that only have reviews on the blurb, I don't care about the reviews until I know if I want to read the book or not then I can just scroll down to read the reviews myself.

Not Quite Kindle / Can you pray for my mom
« on: November 16, 2011, 11:35:45 am »
On her way to work on Monday night my Mom fell asleep and hit a tree. She's in a coma they have not been able to wake her after surgery to fix a broken leg. She has several broken bones and on a ventilator doing 100% of her breathing for her. It took them a hour to get her out of her car. Please pray for her and that she will wake up.

Apple devices (iPad, iPhone, iPod...) / Scratches
« on: November 08, 2011, 10:37:25 am »
Does the back of your Ipad2 get scratched easy? I have a cover on my Ipad2 that I hate right now and I was looking at Apples Smart Cover but I was concerned about the back of my Ipad 2 getting scratched up since it offers no protection for that.

Let's Talk Kindle! / Best Buy and Kindle Fire
« on: November 03, 2011, 11:16:26 am »
You can Pre order the Kindle Fire from Best Buy, they will have them on release date at least for the pre orders. When you pre order they give you a $50 gift card for best buy that you can use towards the purchase price on the kindle (or anything else in the store that you want) making the price $150 if you use your gift card.
