Okay, so I have just discovered an unfortunate side effect of using the Kindle.  I am so used to the screen refresh (the split-second that you see the screen go dark before it shows the new page) that I was clicking on manybooks.net, and when I clicked on the letter to get to an author list, I didn't realize that the page had already changed because I didn't see the refresh.  So I just sat staring at it, waiting for it to go to the page, but it was already there. 

I feel stupid.  LOL

I kinda like the little "flash" when the page turns.  I feel like it is an indicator that the material has moved forward.  I would probably end up staring at the screen too without the refresh! ;)

So that's why I keep staring at computer screens. Please don't feel stupid. If you feel stupid, I'll feel stupid, and you wouldn't want me to feel stupid, would you. ;)

I did that on my kindle the other day. I must have blinked or looked away during the flash and i just sat there for a minute wondering why it wouldnt change. Kept thinking it must be a topaz formatted book. Really dumb!  :D
