Google or Amazon

When I have a question I want a quick answer to - or want someone else to solve (like a plumber) - I go to Google.I trust the Google oracle with definitions, turkey cooking times, images, history, facts.When I have a deep question, I often find myself on Amazon. I want the step-by-step solution and the reason behind it? I want a book. With Kindle lighting up the sky in its meteoric explosion, chances are I want an e-book....more

It's time to settle into my Woman-Cave

So many books, so little time... I've learned how incredibly easy it is to download books to Chelsea's Kindle from Amazon.  Uh-oh. (Yeah, I know. Everybody else on the planet already heard this late-breaking news.)  So in the past few days I've downloaded 3 books and read 1 and 1/2 of them.  Superstorm Sandy has provided some great weather for these sorts of activities here in middle Kentucky--even more so in eastern Kentucky where the snow is piled a foot high.  ...more

Kindle Paperwhite: A Smart Bitches' Review

Last night my Kindle Paperwhite (which I've been calling the Kindle Paperweight without meaning to, and the name has stuck) arrived. I had this scheduled on my calendar as soon as I received the shipping notification. I wanted time completely alone to set up the Kindle - and to my surprise my sons were about as excited about the new Kindle as I was. They wanted me to open the box in front of them, which was bonehead easy, thanks to Amazon's truly (and I mean this) excellent packaging initiative.  ...more

Listening to books, or how I got over myself

Excerpted from a post I made on Fit for Company.One of my passions is reading. I learned to read when I was about 2 and have been devouring the printed word ever since. Growing up, I read what my parents had on the shelves, which was mostly classic science fiction (Asimov, Heinlein, some Harry Harrison). And now, I have books on shelves and piled in corners and stacked in boxes under the kitchen table...still mostly science fiction and fantasy, but I try to branch out every once in a while....more
