One book sample has giant text compared to every other book

19 January 2019 09:41 (GMT)

So I downloaded a sample of "the Budayeen Cycle The Complete Series" and for some bizarre reason the text is huge. It's not from the option to zoom the text size out/in, when I use it on this book the smallest size is still significantly larger than other books'. All the options (font, margin size etc) are the same as my other books.  1337x KissAsian MangaStream


Is this a bug or is there some option I've overlooked? Also I was hoping a kind soul might be willing to download the sample and tell me if it's the same for them. This is on a kindle fire hd 8.

Exporting Highlights That Exceed Publisher Limits?

17 January 2019 17:34 (GMT)

I downloaded an archived book, but when I go to export the highlights it says I have exceeded the publisher limits, and no new highlights can be exported. I did not pay for the book, which was automatically generated for the Kindle format on my iPad. 
I spent two weeks reading this book for a project. How can I export these highlights?

Thanks for any help!

How to add book on Goodreads and update progress on Kindle.

17 January 2019 17:32 (GMT)

Hello fellow readers. I struggle with adding sideloaded books to Goodreads (updating status). Is it even possible. I have tried editin meta data with Calibre (ISBN and ASIN) and Quality check plugin, but nothing worked for me. Is there any simple guide how to do it ?  
Also, since i have already added books manually to Goodreads with "currently reading" status via browser or mobile app can I update my % progress directly via/on Kindle device ?

Would kindle help me?

16 January 2019 17:39 (GMT)

I want to get a kindle because I believe it would help me be encouraged to read books because

It's convenient, I don't have to put physical bookmarks or have a hard time holding a physical book.

It has built in light with it and it won't strain my eyes compared to when using phones or tablets

It's easier for me to get the book, just download it.

I believe I'm not into reading that much because I feel uncomfortable with having to adjust the way I hold a book and also because of the bookmark. But at the same time, I'm afraid to get one because I think I'll get one just to have something new. 

Appreciate any advice. Thank you!

Option to colour images/diagrams within an Ebook with Kindle?

09 January 2019 09:38 (GMT)

Hi all,

I was just wondering if it's possible to colour images and/or diagrams within the Kindle app? I am asking this because my College Prof wants us to use the, "the anatomy coloring book 4th edition" for class but I'm trying to go paperless and need a work-around!!

Thus, before I buy the Kindle version I thought I might as well ask you friendly folks before I spend more of those very few dollars I have remaining (wooo I love the college life!)..

Thanks for your time and all the best! https://ovo.fyi/lorem-ipsum/ https://ovo.fyi/temp-mail/ https://ovo.fyi/10-minute-mail/

Is the Paperwhite worth for a first-time buyer?

01 January 2019 07:43 (GMT)

I’ve never owned a Kindle before, but I recently started using the Kindle app on my iPhone and loved the accessibility of reading anywhere. I want to buy my first Kindle, but I can’t decide between the entry level Kindle or the new Paperwhite. https://downloader.vip/yify-yts/ https://putlocker.ooo/ https://omegle.onl/



Here’s the thing: I don’t really read around the water so being waterproof isn’t a factor; I’m also used to not being able to read in the dark because I’ve always read physical books. So...

Is the backlight that much of a game changer? Will it be worth the extra $50 if I plan to continue more normal daylight/lamp reading patterns?

Thanks is advanced for the help!

Free 1/14 to 1/16 Eternity Base

14 January 2019 13:25 (GMT)

Eternity Base
Maverick federal employee Sammy Pintella, obsessed with uncovering the fate of her MIA father, makes a startling discovery while rifling through some inactive government files. A dozen, faded black and white photos seem to point to the existence of a secret US Military base built in the frozen wastelands of Antarctica during the height of the Cold War.

Aided by Special Forces veteran Dave Riley, she heads for Antarctica. But they aren’t alone. Spies, North Koreans, and other shadowy forces are also en route, because deep inside Eternity Base is something people will go to extreme lengths to get: a cache of nuclear warheads.

Kansas City Journal Enquirer. “What a delicious adventure-thriller. Its clever, plausible plot gives birth to lots of action and suspense.” 

San Francisco Examiner. “A fast-paced thriller with compelling main characters and incredibly determined foes.”

FREE until 1/11 Nine Eleven (Time Patrol)

08 January 2019 12:06 (GMT)

NINE ELEVEN (Time Patrol)
'He who controls the past, controls the future. He who controls the present, controls the past.' [b]Orwell. 1984.

What does it take to change history and destroy our reality? Change events on the same date, 11 September, in six different years. The Time Patrol must send an agent back to each day, with just 24 hours for each to defeat the Shadow's plan to disrupt our time-line, creating a time tsunami and wiping our present out.

Roland goes to Nine-Eleven 9 A.D., when three Roman legions are annihilated by an alliance of Germanic tribes; the Romans would never again attempt to expand east of the Rhine River. What if the Romans won?

Ivar travels to Nine-Eleven 1973, when a military coup in Chile, engineered by the United States, topples the elected President and brings Pinochet to power. What if the coup fails?

Moms goes back to Nine-Eleven 1857, when 120 emigrants are slaughtered by Mormons in the Mountain Meadows Massacre in Utah. What if it was worse than that? And what if Moms faces a personal dilemma of her own past there?

Doc goes to Nine-Eleven 1776, when Benjamin Franklin and John Adams sit down with British Admiral Howe on Staten Island to discuss a possible peace settlement. What if they succeed?

On Nine-Eleven 2001, while the world is focused on the United States, the largest plane in the world is carrying the largest nuclear weapon ever made across Russia; but disappears. Who took it? Where is it? That's Eagle's mission.

And then there is the most mysterious mission of all, where a Time Patrol agent must go into the Patrol’s own recent history to insure it even exists.
