The Book Bazaar / Free Book Finds (2018) - No Self Promotion, please
« on: January 01, 2018, 06:01:13 am »
Post free* book finds here.   No self-promotion please!

To search Amazon for free books, click here.

This thread is for members to post their Free book finds, no self-promotion please. Posts about an author's own books will be removed. Also, please don't post your friend's book as a "find."  You didn't just  "find it," did you? ;) 

And please do not link through other sites:  use KBoards affiliate links (link-maker above) or generic Amazon links. :)

If you have a book of your own to promote, you may start a thread all your own in the Book Bazaar to promote your book, to post news and to talk to your fans!  Of course, you may also list the book in your Avatar and signature.  And you may list your temporarily free books in our Links to Free Books thread. Thanks!

Tip: typing in the title in addition to including the cover helps when doing searches!

We generally try to keep this thread on topic with book posts only, off-topic posts will be "pruned"!  This helps members who use the "new post" indicator or who have subscribed to the thread.  Thanks for your cooperation!

Did we mention No Self Promotion?

*'bargain' generally means under $5 (inside US - price may vary in other countries) . . .but, buyer beware:  prices can change without notice so look before you click!

**"Self-promotion" includes books that the poster has a vested self-interest in--books by friends and family or books that the member is posting on behalf of the author, to include paid or unpaid promotion.

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

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.
