Wed, 29 Mar 2017 16:35:58 GMTWilliam John Locke: Born : 1863 Mar 20: Died : 1930 May 15 Excerpt THE early story of Baltazar is not the easiest one to tell. It is episodic. It obeys not the Unities of Time, Place and Action. The only unity to be found in it is the oneness of character in that absurd and accomplished man. The fact of his being lustily alive at the present moment does not matter. To get him in perspective, one must regard him as belonging to the past. Now the past is a relative conception. Save to the academic student of History, Charlemagne is as remote as Sesostrie. To the world emerging from the stupor of the great war, Mone is as distant as Balaclava. Time is really reckoned by the heart-throbs of individuals or nations. Yester-year is infinitely far away. . . .

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 16:15:31 GMTOkay, so I'm new here. Trying to get my kindle books into the Calibre program. Here's my problem. I have tried taking the kindle files from my laptop files (Kindle app, content, etc) but when I view them they are stuck in the wide screen desktop format as opposed to looking like a regular page from a book (stretched and very oddly put together). Is there a better way to do this? I thought perhaps if I managed to get them off my iPad's kindle app they would come out better. Is there a way to do this? PS - I also am using DeDRM. That might affect stuff. Thanks.
Wed, 29 Mar 2017 15:05:16 GMTWhat the hell, I have less than half the e-books on the device and the space is finito. 8GB and maaaaby 8-9,000 books and then it's ended. And we are talking about ordinary e-books no pdf or stuff like that. Anyone run into the limitations of space? Grrrr. Why did they remove the SD slot? :angry:
Wed, 29 Mar 2017 14:40:11 GMTHi I feel a bit silly asking this but I am a little unsure how to search for certain tags. I know you can click the column and it will sort according to the first tag, but I was wondering if there is something with a drop down menu that lets you choose from the tags you have.:blink: When you enter tags it lets you add as many as you want... yet I can't seem to find a way to search for them the same way you can add them. Image: http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y221/Miss_Pepper/calbretags_zpsqbhjnq2e.jpg <---like that. I found a webpage that shows a search feature to the left that I don't have http://blog.calibre-ebook.com/2011/10/calibres-tag-browser.html but my calibre is a much newer version than that one. Thanks for any help, Pep
Wed, 29 Mar 2017 14:31:39 GMTHello, my Kindle Voyage comes with a limited selection of font sizes. Some are way too tiny, and some way too large. I would like to change the font sizes available. Is it possible to adjust the font sizes on the kindle voyage. I have jailbroken and installed Kual and Helper. Thanks.
Wed, 29 Mar 2017 12:11:52 GMTHave an Aura One with Overdrive linked to my local library. Have a number of eBooks at library with holds that when cleared should download automatically to the device. I'm finding that if say four books clear holds in the same week, that not all are downloading to the device. I might get only one or two of the books. Any suggestions on how to remediate the issue?

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 06:08:07 GMTMy name is Anthony Land. I've written for a living since I was 18 years old. In the process of becoming a helluva lot older, I've written everything from can labels to undersea documentaries, network news reports to medical advertising. I spent 25 years as a journalist and just about the same length of time in advertising, marketing and public affairs. In 2013, I published my first novel on Amazon. Two more have followed. I'm now seriously engaged in their marketing.

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 01:48:10 GMTWhat's the best way to convert hyperlinks to plain text in my recipes? I often accidentally touch a hyperlink in my Kindle when turning pages and it tries to then bring up a browser to the link. I'd rather just remove all the hyperlinks if possible.
Tue, 28 Mar 2017 23:30:16 GMTI've been reading a LOT of ebooks using Overdrive from my local library on my android tablet and phone, and my eye strain is telling me that I need to get an e-ink e-reader. Plus my birthday is coming up. :) I appreciate the threads here and have spent a lot of time reading through them, but am not sure what I should be getting. I am located in the USA, so am limited in my options. I really only check out e-books from my local libraries with Overdrive, so a tablet that would support me installing the Overdrive app would be great. (I think I've heard that some tablets support loading android apps?) I'd rather not have to hook up my computer to the e-reader every time I needed a book. I heard the new Kobo Aura One supported Overdrive, but it seems as though it is just Overdrive through the Kobo store, and it only supports a single library (I have two different e-libraries that I use) so I don't know how well that would work. I do also own a few ebooks through Amazon, but not many, and have loaded some things from Gutenburg as well, but Overdrive is my current major ebook provider. The other major thing is that I am a fast reader, so I'd like to have something with quick page turns. I've tried some readers that had a noticeable wait time to load the next page, and don't want that. Screen size- probably in the 7 to 8-ish inch range, I don't want the huge full sheet but I do want to be able to get a lot of words on the page at the same time. :) Water resistance would be a nice feature as I do like to read in the bath occasionally, and would be taking the e-reader to Hawaii this fall. But it isn't a must-have as I can just be careful. I'm not a huge fan of the Amazon infrastructure and system, so a Kindle wouldn't be my first choice, but there don't appear to be many options currently available in the US. I'd appreciate any suggestions you have (and feel free to point me to other threads. I tried to find them in my searches but it is quite likely I missed something relevant). Thank you so much for your time!
Tue, 28 Mar 2017 21:10:34 GMTLately I'm enjoying reading from my IPad2 mini. After the 2, they made a mini 3 and 4 after, but since my mini 2 will be for reading books, and seeing live music (aka, low power programs), I went with the 2. The 3 was discontinued, and the 4 seems almost identical to the 2, save for faster CPU, faster and more ram, and more SSD space. All of that I don't need to read books. The mini 2 actually lasts longer on battery, and cost me $150 (for the 16GB version, which is more than enough for several games, and a hundred books); vs the mini 4, which supposed to have 10% less battery life, and would cost me 5x more expensive. I think I did a good purchase. Just noticed too late it was the 16GB vs the 32GB I wanted, but apple apps consume a lot less memory than android apps. I also have LTE 4G on it. But all of those feats are turned off. The LTE should help with google maps, as it can give a slightly more accurate position than the wifi only tablet (mini has no GPS). But I don't really need it. With it all turned off, and screen brightness to the minimum, and set for night reading (screen turns more warm or reddish), the tablet lasts well over 15 hours (about 5-8% per hour of battery drain)! Very satisfied with it!
