Best source for audiobooks?

10 October 2019 11:46 (GMT)

Hello everyone,,,
I recently rediscovered my love of audiobooks. My current job allows me to listen to audiobooks, podcasts, etc. while I work. At first, everything was going well. I was getting through my backlog of audiobooks from monthly credits.

Unfortunately, because I am listening so many hours ufa every shift, I am quickly burning through my audiobooks. At the rate I am going, I am going to have to work overtime just to pay for my books!

Is there a cheaper alternative to audible? Perhaps a service where I just pay X amount and it grants me unlimited streaming rights? I don't care if I actually own the books. I just need something for more high-volume listeners that doesn't cost me an arm and leg. Once I get to less popular books, I can use my public library. Sadly, they are always checked out on the ones I really want to read right now.

Older US Kindle - help required!!

16 September 2019 16:31 (GMT)

Hi guys,

I have an older Kindle (International version) which was ordered from the US site before the UK site started selling them. It seems that with the new influx of Kindle users, the longer term ones have been forgotten because all support for this model on the Amazon website seems to have vanished.

I have a couple of questions. Firstly, I'm using firmware version 2.5.2. Can I update to the version 3 firmware, or isn't it suitable for this model?

Secondly, I always connect via Whispernet, but my connection isn't great and I can never get books to download properly so have to download them to my PC. I'd love to connect to my home network via Wi-Fi, but I'm not sure if it's possible. There certainly doesn't seem to be an option in the Settings to set it up, but that might be something to do with the firmware version I have.

Any help would be much appreciated!distance between US cities

Buying a new Kindle in France

03 September 2019 14:14 (GMT)

Hi, My 9 year old keyboard Kindle has been playing up for a few weeks and has finally died today.   Cant switch on or off non of the keys respond so time to replace.
Amazon Uk will not deliver to France, so if I buy from Amazon France will I be able to set it up, changing language and keyboard to UK English and connecting to my UK Amazon account to buy books as I have done since living in France.  Will I be able to download all the collections of books to the new item.
Thanks for your help.

WiFi issue

20 August 2019 08:58 (GMT)

[font="Noto Sans", Arial, sans-serif]Trying to get Boot Camp working so that I can run PC only music software. Successfully set it up, was able to run Windows 10, but I'm not able to connect to Wifi. My computer isn't detecting any networks. I've read up a bunch of Apple forums, a lot of them talk about a certain Broadcom driver in the Device Manager, but I'm not seeing it. It looks like a bunch of other people have run into this issue but there isn't one clear solution. Thought I'd ask here. Also worth noting that I uninstalled the Boot Camp partition after trying and failing a couple solutions, and I hope I didn't fuck myself by losing my Windows 10 key. Thanks in advance![/font]how to win internet cafe games

Kindles make the best gifts!

19 July 2019 15:07 (GMT)

Last week I discovered that I could share my entire Amazon cloud full of e books with my youngest daughter, she's 19 and is developing a taste for psychological thrillers like me. So I set up the household account and got it all working. Well afterwards I was browsing Kindles in Amazon as hers is about 5 years or more old now and was second hand when she had it, so it's done really well and is still going strong, but I thought she deserved a new one and as she's done really well and got all distinctions in her college biology work this last year decided I'd surprise her with a brand new model. I ordered it and didn't breath a word and when it came I just handed her the parcel and said it was for her. Her face when she realised what it was was such a picture and a real joy. She was so surprised and was thrilled to bits. She ordered a new case for it too and it's been going everywhere with her. I'll never forget her face!!! They really do make amazing gifts, both of mine have been gifts, first one was from my husband and the second I saved birthday money from family and bought one. My eldest daughter still ha my keyboard one and Nina my youngest says she's going to keep the old one in her college bag so she always has one on hand.

FREE to 10/20 Psychic Warrior

16 October 2019 15:24 (GMT)

Psychic Warrior
Based on an actual military program. Men Who Stare At Goats was based on a real program, Trojan Warrior, which the author was part of. This book takes that to the next level.

The Russians sink the submarine USS Thresher in 1963 using their classified psychic project, but something goes awry and all are killed. Except one scientist who plans to take the project to a higher level. Decades later, the Russians unleash Chyort, also known as the ‘Devil’. Chyort is a cyborg that can project into the virtual world with almost limitless power and reassemble his avatar anywhere in real world to wreak havoc. When the Russian mafia steals 20 nuclear warheads to auction them to the highest bidder, Chyort implements his own plan of revenge.

Sergeant Major Jimmy Dalton and a small team of US Green Berets who were originally trained in the classified Trojan Warrior program are thrust into the Psychic Warrior program. The team must battle a Russian avatar on the virtual plane and then take their own avatars into the real world. Their mission seems simple. Stop Chyort. If they fail? World War III.

Psychic Warrior takes warfare into the virtual plane through avatars and then reinserts the covert operatives into the real world. The results can be devastating. Mayer uses his real Military experience in the then-classified Special Forces Trojan Warrior program and writes a novel about the new frontier of warfare: the mind.

This is the future of Special Operations Warfare.

Library Journal: “A heart-pounding thriller about the emergence of a deadly avatar. The panorama of modern warfare and the details of hand-to-hand combat encounters add excitement. Inventive, entertaining, and realistic adventure. Highly recommended.”

FREE 10/10 to 10/12 Chasing the Ghost: The Green Berets

10 October 2019 21:33 (GMT)

The first Green Beret book featuring Horace Chase.
Chasing the Ghost.
Covert operative Horace Chase has been chasing ghosts his entire life.

First, his Medal-of-Honor winner father who died in Vietnam without ever meeting his son. And left him the legacy of an automatic appointment to the Military Academy at West Point which shaped the next thirty-five years of Chase's life. Then, the ghost of his mother, who died while he was at war in Afghanistan and wounded, causing him to resign his commission and return to the United States, a lost soul.

Chase now wears two hats as a Federal counter-terrorism liaison to the local police department in Boulder, Colorado where he becomes embroiled in two seemingly un-related cases. Working as a detective with Boulder PD he chases another death, this one the apparent rape/murder of Rachel Stevens, an upscale housewife attending night classes at the University of Colorado. And with his counter-terrorism team he is embroiled in a series of killings involving a militia group, a rogue ex-Special Forces officer, a psychopathic ex-CIA contract mercenary, and ruthless drug runners.

From the streets of Boulder, to the highest railroad tunnel in the world, to a swingers club hiding in plain site in suburbia, Afghanistan starts to look pretty good to Chase.

Area 51: Redmeption FREE 10/8 and 10/9

08 October 2019 12:45 (GMT)

Area 51: Redemption
At the edge of the Solar System, beyond the Heliosphere, a massive warship comes out of Faster Than Light Transit. It is the Ancient Enemy spoken of in myths and legends.

Do we deserve a Second Chance?
[Image: 518LKysO5VL.jpg]

Mike Turcotte, the Special Forces officer who led the fight against the Airlia, which ruled our planet from the shadows for over 10 millennia, has returned to Area 51. Earth has freed itself from the shackles of alien domination, but at high cost while winning World War III. He has learned what he believes is the truth about human origins.

A truth so devastating he insists it cannot be made public.

But the thing no one on Earth knows is that in winning the war they've initiated the seeds of their own doom.

Something worse than World War III. Something worse than the Airlia.

Something that means the end of all life in the Solar System. But there is one who might have a solution; except she's not human.

The continuation of the series that has sold over 2 million copies, screenplay written by the man who penned Alien, Total Recall and produced Minority Report.
