I'm a big reader :) I've loved to read since I first learned and find it to be a nice escape from reality a lot of the time. It will be 2 years this summer since I got my Kindle Touch and I just love it! It was such a great investment and I have made up for it with all the free books I've been getting on Amazon since then. Outside of that I have upwards of 500+ books (and counting) that I personally own. My favorite genre has always been fantasy. Dad used ...

I read on a paperwhite kindle mostly, but also iPad. Also listen to books on the treadmill. I need to find out more about free books as I am spending way too much money in the amazon bookstore!!! <BR> <BR> I like fiction, fantasy, and medically related info (I am an FNP), and read prolifically. Only read on kindle etc any more because that way I can take it anywhere.

So I had the Library connect me so I could borrow books. Its just for their Library.

You will need a library card/account to check out ebooks. Has anyone tried this? I plan on trying it when I finish the two books I have checked out from my library.

I miss the Musketeers and was looking forward to the next book club choice. But, Summer is coming and things will slow down. Right now I am reading Radical, The Wisdom of a Crowd, Rebel with a Cause and The Hole in the Gospel. All are very good. I am researching for a presentation in July.

Lauren Alexander is raising her daughter alone. Abandoned by her family for her decision to keep her daughter Kristen, she has done a pretty good job for the last six years. Or she thought she had. That's why she is crushed when little Kristen gives up her wish for a toy or goodie and instead asks Santa for a present for her mother. She wants Santa to bring a Daddy. Delivering Daddies isn't Santa's bag. <BR> ...

The character of Annabeth and the fairytale ending were very unbelievable to me. The drastic change was too much and the extreme talents that find instant approval, also unbelievable. The book reads like a fairytale. I did enjoy it, but would not recommend it. Thu, 10 Nov 2011 20:09:16 EST Chapters 17&18 http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=21139x39930x44998302 Whoa....things do move quickly in this book. I loved the answers about time space and finding herself. But here we are and Linda you are right....The suthor is going to wrap this all in a nice package. So here we see Doug fitting in so perfectly with her family and her life. He is sensitive and caring and really is offering a sensitivity that she has never experienced. <BR> <BR> #1 Personal reflection....How do you feel about this? <BR> #2 Do you have this in your life? <BR> <BR> My an...

Bad relationships, overly passive and refusing to deal with the obvious. <BR> <BR> #1 Would you care to share how situations in your past made you into the person you have become? <BR> <BR> #2 Have you conquered your demons or are you still working on it? <BR> <BR> 1. I have always felt neglected by a large family and parents that gave it all to their jobs. Feeling invisible is a demon that I carried all most of my life. ... Wed, 9 Nov 2011 12:12:40 EST Chapters 13&14 http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=21139x39930x44986415 #1 How do you feel about Annabeth and all the players in her life? Specifically the men. <BR> <BR> #2 Do you think she will find a future with Doug or alone? <BR> <BR> <BR> She appears to be done with RJ, George and the pharmacist. But I can't understand her jumping into bed with each of them as quickly and thoughlessly as she did. <BR> <BR> I love how chapter 14 ends....with the realization that the memories are within her not the house. now she can let go! Tue, 8 Nov 2011 18:42:35 EST Chapters 11 and 12 http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=21139x39930x44950148 okay so I have to say this was a surprising turn.... <BR> <BR> First we see an Annabeth who can't stand up for herself to anyone, then in comes this woman who easily throws caution to the wind and jumps in bed with a man she has hardly met. <BR> <BR> #1 Don't you see this as out of character for her? <BR> <BR> #2 What do you think of both the daughter's responses? <BR> <BR> My answers: I do see this as out of character. The character the author has developed. And the responses of the ... Sun, 6 Nov 2011 16:42:48 EST Chapters NIne and Ten http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=21139x39930x44950018 So finally we see Annabeth moving in a great direction. Taking charge of her life. Looking into a mortgagae to buy her husband out. Developing her painting career, a new job and glamour shots? LOL I am glad to see her changing before our eyes. <BR> <BR> #1 What is going on between the two brothers Grady and Doug? Is there some competition for her left over from high school? <BR> <BR> #2 How would you interpret this dream? Sun, 6 Nov 2011 16:30:33 EST Chapters Seven and Eight http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=21139x39930x44942938 As the story unfolds I am still frustrated by her family and their lack of thought for Annabeth. <BR> <BR> #1 How would you have reacted to your sister simply dropping her son off for you to watch during work? <BR> <BR> #2 What do you think the outcome of this initial divorce meeting will be? <BR> <BR> #3 Do you think RJ will come sniveling back to her in the end? Sun, 6 Nov 2011 07:19:07 EST CHAPTERS FIVE AND SIX http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=21139x39930x44909746 Finally we begin to see Annabeth speaking up for herself. <BR> <BR> #1 Was she justified in selling his cars, given what he has done with their money? <BR> <BR> #2 What would you do if your money supply was suddenly cut off? <BR> <BR> #3 What is Martha's problem? <BR> <BR> Thu, 3 Nov 2011 21:54:54 EST CRITIC'S CORNER http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x39930x44906081 Have you read a really bad book lately? One you would not recommend! Then list it here and let us know about it. <BR> <BR> The Watcher John Brinling - This was a book club selection and it was really dark. I didn't care for it, and most of the book club dropped out at the harsh text. <BR> <BR> The best roommate by Samantha Whitney This was an oops. But it just took a moment to realize this is an x rated book.

I didn't want to spoil the end for anyone who hadn't finished the book. <BR> <BR> I really wanted to talk about the scene where Cordelia showed up to shoot Thom. Did anyone else see that coming? We had talked about the foreshadowing when Darius gave Cordelia a handgun. She had become quite the shot with the shotgun and when I realized...

But it also shows her realization of her own talents and possibilities. I would not want him back and wouldn't want to see her with him back. Unless there was a miraculous change within every part of him.

Thu, 29 Apr 2010 11:49:11 EST Hello fellow kindlers http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x39930x33605703 Hello, I am Jen and live in Arizona...originally from Rhode Island. <BR> <BR> I got my kindle from my dad. My mom was in a diabetic coma for a week and me and my dad were at the hospital a lot with our library books. We bonded over the books we like (come to find out he reads a lot of the same ones I do!) and we started chatting about the kindle and the nurse heard us and brought hers in and that was it! Dad went home and bought one for him and one for me! My dad rules! <BR> (mom is home...

I was out for quit a while and I was sooooo board. I wound up reading the kindle with a flashlight - was not to bad but I did notice you get some glare that way. Still was nice to have all my books there and handy. 8) Sat, 10 Apr 2010 04:36:37 EST Kindle and PDF docs http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x39930x33295008 The font is so small when I put a PDF document on my Kindle that I have trouble reading it. I've tried to save the PDF as text, but the document is too large for that. The screen layout and font buttons on the Kindle don't help on PDFs. <BR> <BR> I'm out of ideas! Does anyone have any suggestions to get the format to work on my Kindle? It is such a great book, but it's a strain on my eyes. <BR> <BR> (I can't change the font size on the PDF itself because it's an ebook that I don't have wri...

I've been a loyal Kindle fan! I *almost* bought a Barnes & Noble Nook, but decided to wait for the iPad. <BR> <BR> I recently sold my Kindle 2 in preparation for getting the iPad on April 3rd. Has anyone else converted? <BR> <BR> At first I thought I wouldn't like it because if I read while in bed, the light would keep me awake, but I've stopped reading in bed becau... Sun, 28 Mar 2010 14:07:48 EST Hi http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x39930x32865441 I was really excited to see this team. I love to read and just love my kindle. It makes reading so easy. I am about to become an empty nester as my youngest is planning on getting married at the end of the year. I have two grandchildren and another daughter. The grandchildren are hers and they are in Wisconsin. I live in VA with my dh and dd. I am trying to lose 100 pounds by this time next year. I think that is all there is about me at this point. <BR> Sun, 21 Mar 2010 22:00:11 EST Reading The Spark on Kindle? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x39930x32730417 I'm just finding it a little hard to remember what chapter I'm in. It's made me a little glad that I'm not teaching any books with it-- easy to bookmark, a bit difficult t describe where you are.

I finally changed out from the one I've had on her for months. Switched to something Spring. She's now beautifully decked out in DecalGirl - Daisy Days. Also got one for my ITouch to match. Love the quality and the fact that she wont get fingerprint smudges. Kindle is happy!

It comes with two pedometer's, so I have one and my husband has the other. I love it because there are no buttons on it. When you reach your goal steps for the day the little light turns green.

So if you read for example 20 min then you need to work out for 20 min. If you can read while you work out then its like a bonus. You can read and work out for 20 min and then you will get 20 min to relax and read. <BR> Please post the amount you read for that day and the amount of working out you did. <BR> (Thanks CRITTERMAMA for march's Challenge) <BR> <BR> Good suggestion from WINGS: <BR> "I have discovered that I can read on my treadmill...

I love my Kindle and always sing its praises whenever someone asks "what's that?" I always tell people to just take the leap and invest the money - you'll never be sorry you did. I've had mine since May last year and it has paid for itself more than once. <BR> <BR> I've struggled with weight issues my whole life. Last year I finally got TRULY motivated and did something about it....

I love it so far. <BR> <BR> Looking forward to getting to know each other. <BR> <BR> What health/diet/exercise books have your put on your Kindle? <BR> <BR> Blessings~ Angela Thu, 25 Feb 2010 22:20:54 EST Kindle Covers http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x39930x32221799 Do you have a cover for your Kindle, or is it naked? I kind of like the look of the Kindly lying around, but I'm thinking about getting a cover. It has to be cute and/or elegant - and NO LEATHER. Also, I like the book-flap kind better than the sleeve types. <BR> <BR> Any suggestions? What do you use? Know any good websites with a good variety?

I first found out about the Kindle through the Oprah show and the deal Jeff Bezos offered on there to introduce it, as well as my pastor had one and talked about how he liked it. My hubby travelled a lot for work and is an avid reader so I bought it for him for Christmas. He loved it! He works with computers and loves all things electronic. Me not so much. <BR> <BR> When the next generation of Kindle came out, he bought it right away. I was so ma...

I had no idea that it was going to be competing in a way with the Kindle. <BR> <BR> I am going to get one for quick easy internet access so I can track my food on spark people without having to turn on my main PC. But for books, I really don't think it would work well. The e-ink with the kindle makes reading just like reading any other book - I have tried to read on computers, laptops, ...

I just got a Kindle for Christmas, and I really love it! I have a problem with low vision and reading, but the Kindle is perfect for me. I have only bought 4 books, but I have probably gotten 50 for free. I think that the Kindle will be a boost to my weight loss goals, because I won't be eating or drinking while I am reading it. I had a bad habit of snacking while reading books. I wish everyone luck with thei...
