Wed, 20 Jan 2016 02:32:27 EST The Hot Zone by Richard Preston Has anyone read this book? I just finished book 3 of the chronicles or narnia and decided to start on this. It's supposed to be non-fiction but it's written like a story. It's about a hemorrhagic fever (not sure which one, the summary doesn't say) and the descriptions are vivid (even for me, considering I read a lot of horror and suspense). I only bought it because I'm interested in becoming either an epidemiologist or medical illustrator and this falls into the first field. Tue, 5 Jan 2016 15:05:09 EST Great Reading for the Holiday Season "Immanuel: A different kind of Christmas romance" ~~ Sarah Jordan gets a chance of a lifetime: to sing the theme song, 'Immanuel', in a star-studded production. But she is a newcomer. Can she pull it off? Maybe, with the help of performing artist Logan S. Lee. As the tour progresses, their attraction for each other grows. Other performing artists notice and the fun begins. <BR> <BR> <BR> <img src=""> <BR> <BR> ... Mon, 14 Dec 2015 20:42:30 EST Library?

Wed, 9 Oct 2013 09:24:31 EST Free Books Author J. Joseph Wright has made ALL his books free today, I don't know how long it will last after today. I saw one and it was a paranormal action and adventure. One was a horror and one was erotica, so there seams to be a big mixture. Of course I haven't read any of them, so can't say how good a writer he is. Some of the books have a few good reviews, but they could be friends and a lot don't have any reviews, so my guess he is fishing for reviews, but if you are willing to take a chance o...

I am new to the team today and I love it! I am an avid reader and I enjoy reading a little bit of everything. I have had a kindle keyboard for a couple of years and was given a Kindle Fire HD for Christmas. It's awesome! My daughter, 6 years old, has also started asking for a Kindle for her books. <BR> <BR> I also just started my weight loss journey to loose 100 pounds. I appreciate the help and encouragement that a group like this offers. <BR> <BR> Happy Monday and ... Mon, 11 Feb 2013 11:40:45 EST Amazon Prime Question Does anyone here use Amazon Prime and their lending library? <BR> <BR> Tue, 5 Feb 2013 08:40:15 EST new Hi! I am 55 years old and love my nook!

Hi.... <BR> <BR> I've got a problem....maybe you all can help with suggestions. <BR> <BR> There's a lot of stress in my life at the moment (who doesn't have that???). But in my case - when I'm under this kind of stress, I just can't concentrate on reading. It's like Teflon - nothing sticks. I have the new John Meacham Biography of Thomas Jefferson - that I'm dying to read - haven't gotten past the first few pages - over and over again. <BR> <BR> I've read a few absorbing novels recently... Mon, 14 Jan 2013 14:34:58 EST Great Christmas gift from my mom I am getting a Kindle & a pink case for it. We ordered it tonight from Amazon & I will get it on Friday. By my mom applying for the Amazon credit card she got $50.00 off of it. We are also Prime members so the Kindle that started at $69.00 cost $19.00 & 29.98 for the case & FREE 2 day shipping. Wed, 19 Dec 2012 22:38:07 EST Kindle FIRE HD?????? Hi all.... <BR> I'd love some feedback. <BR> I currently use my regular Kindle .... (with the keyboard) for my reading. I'm thinking of upgrading to the 8" Fire, because I'd like to have a tablet and I've heard good things about the Fire. <BR> Does anyone have one? Do you like it? Do you use it as an ereader? Any other advice before I take the plunge? <BR> <BR> Many thanks in advance! <BR> <BR> Libby <em>304</em> <em>213</em> Tue, 11 Dec 2012 10:19:30 EST New to team - feedback on Kindle Paperwhite? Hi - I'm Pat and I am considering buying a Kindle Paperwhite. Does anyone own a Paperwhite and how do you like it? I've never downloaded books before and want a device that is easy to use in all regards. I don't want a tablet; just a device I can read books from. <BR> <BR> Any feedback would be appreciated. Interesting team; glad I found you all! Pat Sun, 25 Nov 2012 11:00:51 EST Looking for Mystery Authors I'm bored with reading the same authors, would like some suggestions for new ones. Sun, 18 Nov 2012 15:14:11 EST DAILY CHAT THREAD HI all, <BR> <BR> Sorry I have been MIA. I have been busy writing and speaking. <BR> <BR> We are all safe here in NJ. Power is out and trees and lines down all around us. Our house and all is safe. We lost power immediately and came to stay in a friend's apt before roads closed. She is one of the 8% that didn't lose power. I thank God all the family is safe in their respective areas. <BR> Wed, 31 Oct 2012 10:37:59 EST Questions about Nooks & Kindles I'm new to my Nook Tablet, one week old. So I had the Library connect me so I could borrow books. Its just for their Library. But I found a site: - you search by zipcode and will give you public libraries that have eBook content within 100 miles of the zipcode. 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. Sun, 28 Oct 2012 14:21:29 EST Ouchy situations So we all get ourselves into situations where we say things we shouldn't have said. I got myself into one!!! I recently have acquired a stalker of kinds. She is an older woman who is very lonely. Anyway I finally had to say a few hard things to her to put a stop to it. Hopefully it has, but I know I hurt her feelings. I also had a friend set me straight last week and that was hard, but I accepted it and am thankful in the end for the guidance. And of course there's the husband issues. ... Wed, 3 Oct 2012 07:01:19 EST TEAM CHECK IN Hi Team, <BR> <BR> It's September and the start of many things. I am happily involved and don't feel overwhelmed or overworked this year. What a change from last month! <BR> <BR> So what's your story? <BR> <BR> What are you reading? <BR> How is your fitness journey going? <BR> What are you involved in this season? <BR> Let's catch up and encourage each other!!! Wed, 19 Sep 2012 11:48:43 EST LET'S CATCH UP! In an effort to save time, since that has been my issue lately, I thought I'd just post a catch up. Tell me what you have been doing. Have you started work? Is your schedule the same? Are you busy and with what? And of course....What are you reading? <BR> Fri, 7 Sep 2012 09:50:03 EST Highlighting grammar and spelling I read awhile ago where someone was talking about how they highlighted grammar and spelling errors, but didn't know why they bothered. Well I just looked at a book on Amazon and there was a comment from Amazon and then repeated by the author that the book had been re edited to corrected all the highlighted notations because of all the negative comments in the comment section, so please ignore the comments about the grammar and spelling issues when reading the comments. <BR> <BR> Guess if yo... Sat, 25 Aug 2012 14:03:19 EST Did you have a good summer? It is slipping by so fast! How was yours? I had a great one. Between Sanibel with my sisters, the seminar and then the writer's conference, this has been a great one. But it is going fast. Not ready for fall. Fri, 24 Aug 2012 08:33:06 EST WHERE DO YOU FIND FREE BOOKS? We have a question from Rebecca. I thought you could all chime in... <BR> <BR> What e reader do you have and where do you get free books? Tue, 14 Aug 2012 13:28:16 EST MIssing the team! What's New? I went to a conference, and one of the classes I took was an Amazon class. The consumer has a lot of influence these days in the success of a book, through reviews. I have an agent and publisher interested in seeing a manuscript I have. So I am crazy busy with the re-write process. But this is a new adventure and I plan to keep moving forward. Of course doubt keeps flaring up. We'll see, it may go nowhere but it is worth investigating. <BR> <BR> What are you doing? Thu, 9 Aug 2012 08:09:23 EST Do we have any authors on board? If you are an author, let us know. I'd like to start a forum for Q&A. Mon, 6 Aug 2012 07:15:25 EST I'M BACK!!! I went to an intensive writers conference. And now I am back. It was so great and I made a lot of connections. It was my first and I had no idea what to expect. But this was by far a great experience!!!

Good morning, <BR> <BR> I just found this group and thought I need to get in on all the fun. I am not very savvy with these groups and would like tips on how to navigate and become the most involved. I received a free Kindle from a friend at work and absolutely love it. I have finished a few books so far. <BR> <BR> Anyway, I am looking forward to meeting some new friends! Tue, 24 Jul 2012 06:48:43 EST overwhelmed Book club, lets chat, just for fun and etc. Haven't figured how to get around on this website as yet....Yikes. <BR> Mon, 23 Jul 2012 19:56:18 EST Kindle Watching how you read I was reading that Kindle not only keeps track of what you buy, but what you do with your books once you get them. They said that Kindle could tell if you finished the book, skipped sections and did you delete, lend it or put in archives. Kindle said that they weren't interested in what individuals did with their books, but kept the information for authors so they could see how people read their books. This way authors could tell how to make their books so more people will buy their books. <B... Thu, 19 Jul 2012 13:48:24 EST Off to Florida HI Team! <BR> I am off to my sister's house tonight. And we leave for Florida early in the morning to meet our other sisters. One week on Sanibel Island, together!!! I can't wait. I'll check in when I can by phone. Have a wonderful week. Enjoy the book you are all reading!!! <BR> WooHoo! Thu, 19 Jul 2012 10:34:08 EST She's Gotta Be Mine Chapters 10 to end For those of you who are impatient to read on and let us know what they think. Thu, 19 Jul 2012 08:55:04 EST She's Gotta Be Mine Chapters 1 to 10 I didn't realise till I went to the end of this book to see how many chapters there were that I've read books by this author writing under a different name - the To The Max series. I enjoyed them a lot, so I've got great hopes for this book now. It's quite short, so I've just divided it into 2 to cover the rest of the month, though of course if you want to take longer there's nothing to stop you. Fri, 13 Jul 2012 04:39:35 EST How often do you use your Kindle/Nook /e-reader? And what do you use it for? <BR> <BR> I hadn't taken mine out for a while, since I had books to read. But now I have revived it and I just love reading with it! Fri, 6 Jul 2012 16:42:42 EST BOOKCLUB OR JUST READ ON OUR OWN? For awhile I prefer to read on my own. Things have been busy and I like to keep my own pace.

Is there much difference? <BR> <BR> I have the color, but my beau reads on his phone and mentioned that he was thinking about getting a nook, I was just wondering if the extra money is worth it. All he would be doing really is reading, no movies or anything like that. Wed, 20 Jun 2012 12:27:44 EST Sitting on the Nook side of the room.... Just in case there is a debate!

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.

Fri, 20 Apr 2012 15:11:07 EST A Place of Secrets by Rachel Hore 3/5 <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> Interesting tale of historical mystery, questions, magical thinking, and a strong sense of place in the British country side. It did drag on a bit in detailing characters and places, however the basic plot line and story telling held this reader's interest enough to finish the book. The protagonist is an engaging young woman researching a background story to accompany some auction items. It is that assignment that leads down the path to her family relationships, her...

Sat, 28 Jan 2012 12:07:23 EST FEB BOOK "44" by Jool Sinclair This book is still free on Amazon. Fri, 27 Jan 2012 12:07:33 EST hi from Tx Hi, I'm Tracy from Texas. I'm a SAHM and wife. My husband bought me a Kindle Fire last week and that is what brought me to this group. I am in love with my kindle! I am reading the book club book for January "Hostile Witnesses" and am enjoying it. Sun, 22 Jan 2012 22:18:46 EST Hostile Witness chapters 31 to 40 I know some of you have finished the book already, so post your thoughts here. Thu, 19 Jan 2012 13:32:54 EST WHAT TIME DO YOU DO YOUR READING? I NEVER SEEM TO HAVE ENOUGH HOURS IN MY DAY Wed, 18 Jan 2012 06:05:05 EST Any two player games for Kindle Besides Words With Friends? I am beginning to hate that game, because that seems to be all there is to play between two friends, any others you know of? Mon, 16 Jan 2012 23:23:29 EST I don't have "Chapters" just Locations.... I don't have "Chapters" just Locations in the book "Hostile Witness" <BR> Could it be because there is no table of contents? <BR> I just get Location 5734 of 7016 - 81% at the bottom of the screen that changes as I read. <BR> <BR> In another book I have, there is a table of contents with chapter titles, so does it just depend on the book? <BR> Mon, 16 Jan 2012 17:59:09 EST Facebook Spark connection I have been reading that there is a link from our blogs to facebook and this may be unknown to some. I went on my edit page as instructed; to toggle off <BR> "Show share bar on my blog posts" <BR> But I do not show that on my page. I am assuming it is because I did not choose to link my FB page with sparks on my sparkpoints list. <BR> <BR> Does anyone know more about this? <BR> <BR> <BR> Mon, 16 Jan 2012 09:44:42 EST Hostile Witness chapters 21 to 30 I know some of you are ahead with your reading - compliment to the book really - so here is somewhere to post your comments.

I can look through the top 100 free books on Amazon, but the UK list isn''t always the same as the US one, so I would appreciate some feedback. Thu, 29 Dec 2011 06:35:19 EST Simple Amish Christmas ch 21-25 1. Samuel overreacts to what he thinks he sees in the barn when he encounters Annie and David there. His reaction was emotional, not logical, and reflected past hurts and present insecurities. In the end, God uses this misunderstanding to bring him closer to Annie. How are our own mistakes used for our own good? <BR> <BR> 2. Annie wonders if she can really love Samuel, when they’ve only been re-acquainted for less than a month. What do you think?

Sat, 24 Dec 2011 00:27:22 EST Simple Amish Christmas - Ch 16-20 #1 In Chapter Sixteen, Annie confesses to Samuel that she understood Bishop Levi’s sermon, even thought she’d taken it to heart, but then a few hours later all the peace had melted away. Have you ever had trouble holding on to whaqt you felt was an important lesson you learned about yourself? <BR> <BR> <BR> #2 The Amish believe strongly in accepting Gotte’s wille and moving on with your life, even when tragedy strikes. Samuel had a bit of trouble with this, but finally comes to the conclus...

Tue, 13 Dec 2011 08:22:44 EST Amish Christmas ch 1-5 So we see, as the plot begins Jacob has been struck by an Englisher and left with two broken legs and infections. His daughter Annie comes home to help nurse her father back to health. <BR> <BR> So the simple plot seems to be set early that Annie and Samuel will probably end up together. Annie will stay in her Amish community and regroup with her family and neighbors. <BR> <BR> Do you see a possible twist coming? <BR> <BR> How do you think her family will react to the news about her...

Sun, 13 Nov 2011 19:55:07 EST I NEED HELP FINDING THE BOOK OF THE MONTH TO READ i only have a free reader on my phone and the book is not on it ,is there anywhere on the laptop i can read this book for free???? my library also does not have it :( help please Fri, 11 Nov 2011 11:00:59 EST Last chapter - 19 So we see the book comes full circle. <BR> <BR> #1 What is your final assessment? <BR> <BR> I liked the book, but this character did drive me crazy. 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 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... Wed, 9 Nov 2011 12:13:30 EST chapters 15&16 We can see Annabeth's tradgedies and how they formed her life. 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 #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 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 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 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 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 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. Thu, 3 Nov 2011 17:07:37 EST OCTOBER BOOK CLUB - WAIT, WE WEREN'T DONE! The October book had 28 chapters and I was trying to wait until this weekend to be sure that everyone had finished the book to post final discussion notes. 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... Sat, 29 Oct 2011 09:45:40 EST CHAPTERs THREE AND FOUR So we will begin the chapter three discussions with a question dfrom chapter two. <BR> <BR> #1 "Even if he snaps out of it, could she ever want him back?" <BR> <BR> My answer: this chapter shows more of the same with Annabeth being put upon and complying. 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. Sat, 29 Oct 2011 08:44:02 EST "Change of Heart" discussions chapters 1&2 Feel free to answer one or all of the questions. And also to ask your own. <BR> <BR> #1. What are your initial impressions? <BR> <BR> My answer: The guy is a real jerk! He is self centered. And will get his in the end. <BR> <BR> #2. How is it possible that one party in a relationship has no idea the other is so unhappy? <BR> <BR> My answer: This has hit close to home since my best friend has experienced the same thing 9 months ago. And it is still ongoing. I do not have an answe... Sat, 29 Oct 2011 08:40:18 EST Finally got my Nook!

Just couldn't see paying $500 for the low range mobile. Before the big announcement on Wed, I had read that Amazon had a pad on the horizon. When I saw the announcement about the new Kindle Fire only being $200, I was floored. I payed more for the Kindle I have now, I have a Kindle 2. I know it only had WiFi, but I have WiFi in my house and there are lots of hot spots. Also I can make a cell phone a... Sun, 2 Oct 2011 06:25:52 EST 4 New Kindles? I just got mine 2 wks ago.

I don't know how many of you remember the sad story about my Kindle getting ruined. It happened when a child stepped on my purse when my Kindle was in the purse. Messed up the screen so you can't read it. <BR> <BR> Last night my husband decided to call customer service just to see if there was anything that we could do about it since it has a 1 year warrenty and I got it for Christmas. We talked to a representative who was very friendly and helpful. The outcome is that I am getting a new... Tue, 23 Aug 2011 10:37:40 EST Sad story... My Kindle was ruined when we went on vacation at the end of July. <BR> <em>46</em> <BR> I had it in my purse and my brother in law moved my purse when we locked the car so noone could see it. I thought he put in in the back of the mini van and unfortunately he put it under the middle seat. My 2 nephews and daughter were in the back seat and somehow it came out from under the seat and one of them steped on it. The screen isn't cracked but it looks like it is because something is broke ins... Tue, 16 Aug 2011 11:52:55 EST College textbooks on kindle??? Hello! I am new here and joined because I am thinking about using a kindle for college textbooks. How easy is it to quickly get through a kindle? I mean if I need to look back in the text for something. I know I can highlight things but if I didn't how fast can I find things again versus "flipping" through an actual book. Also how easy would it be to use in a classroom setting when the instructor says to turn to page whatever? I am looking at the 3G wifi kindle. Well online I am, I ho...

She is mentioned in the book "Jane Austen Book Club" (which by the way is a good book about a group of ladies who form a book club and their lives). Ursula LeGuin is a famous science fiction author, and I'd like to try her, but I don't know which one to read first. I've been wondering if anyone has read her books.

Wed, 29 Jun 2011 09:17:49 EST My Kindle can sabotage me! My Kindle is often my weakest link in my weight loss/healthy lifestyle journey. The fact is I get too wrapped up in stories and the next thing I know, my entire evening has gone out the window! I don't have access to gym equipment at the moment, so reading while moving isn't an option. Even if it were, I've tried it before and it is simply not a safe option for me! I get so involved in the plot that I forget to keep moving. I end up stumbling on the treadmill and look simply ridiculous sittin... Tue, 21 Jun 2011 22:12:54 EST Flying with Kindle I'm on vacation now, and I was reading my Kindle, and the attendant came by and said I had to turn it off and put it under the seat. I told her it was turned off, but I went ahead and put it under the seat - don't want to get arrested for fighting with the flight attendant. But aren't you supposed to be able to read your Kindle on board as long as it isn't turned on? Does anyone know about that? I'm also thinking of contacting Amazon and asking them about that. Tue, 21 Jun 2011 17:18:28 EST Video on Kindle Hi all. I bought the free book on Pilates and it has a bunch of videos.
