Black Screen dead Kindle Touch

03 October 2015 02:20 (GMT)

I have a Kindle Touch D01200 that only displays one of two things, the empty battery charge screen or a full blank black screen (with a thin wedge of white in the upper right corner). The LED glows yellow to indicate charging and will glow green to indicate that it is on but it will not shut off normally (with the switch), just run down the battery or eventually time-out/auto-off. Is there something that can be done with this to make it usable?

Woman fined $1000 for online review

24 September 2015 20:09 (GMT)

This was posted on the KBoards and generated a lot of debate. Although it's not for a book review, will it dissuade book reviewers from giving an honest opinion? Did she cross the line?.

Famous Animals

21 September 2015 10:56 (GMT)

Famous Animals by Katie W Stewart is a triumph! A five star review from me.
If you have a young person with a sense of humour and a thirst for knowledge in your life, you really need this book. I ordered two copies. My nearly -11 year-old grand-daughter will really appreciate it, but I wanted one for myself. Why should the youngsters get all the fun? Each full page illustrations (for example, Felix Mendelsswan – the cover character) faces a page with a little information about the animal and a brief biography of the person. It’s beautifully done, with delightful pictures and is both fun and factual. If you buy one to give away you’ll want another to keep! For the number and quality of the illustrations it’s an absolute bargain.

The author writes for young people and doesn’t talk down to them. It’s all done with wit and imagination. The best thing about it is discovering there’s a Volume II in production. Wonderful!

Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie

19 September 2015 11:19 (GMT)

Was anyone else disappointed by this book? The core ideas – of an AI-controlled starship living through human 'ancillaries', and of a society where gender is irrelevant – are interesting, but somehow I was expecting a lot more. When you get down to it, it's actually quite a basic (and not particularly original) space opera about empires being evil. I found it distinctly underwhelming.

The Cage by David Haynes

[Image: 517eOQUeJtL._AA160_.jpg]

I started reading this story without a clue of the plot. All I know is that I love this author's stories.

This one starts with a murder in a hotel room. But who did it? Was it really the husband who was caught "red handed"?

Ted is hired to investigate this and sets off in a snowstorm to the hotel. There's just him and the twins who run the place staying in the hotel. Or is there?

This started off more of a mystery, but as it progressed and the snow penned the people in, the story got more and more claustrophobic and ever so creepy. The noise the cages made was horrific in my imagination. This is not a story to read late at night. There are many layers to this story, even though it's not a mammoth read.

As expected, I thoroughly enjoyed this story. This author's mind is a bit warped. Which is good for us readers.

FREE children's books Kidtastic Giveaway 11-15th September

11 September 2015 08:57 (GMT)

This multi author promo includes:

Leon Chameleon PI and the case of the missing canary eggs
Selected as one of Bookchat Magazine's 1993 South African Books of the Year. 

When Mrs Canary’s eggs mysteriously disappear, a frantic Mr Canary dashes straight off to the Pigeon Valley Police for help. Unfortunately, Sergeant Loerie and Constable Mole’s hasty attempts to make an arrest lead them to the wrong suspects. Leon Chameleon PI, who has quietly kept an eye on developments, decides it is time to step in and offer his services – after all, isn’t he the best Private Eye in Pigeon Valley? He puts all his skills to work and finds vital clues which Loerie had overlooked. Now a daring plan is needed to trap the suspects and bring them before Spotted Eagle Owl’s Court, where Leon springs his final surprise… 

Janet Hurst-Nicholson draws on the habits and characteristics of the small creatures living in Pigeon Valley, Durban, to create a thrilling detective story. Barbara McGuire’s illustrations capture the story’s humour, while portraying the animals as they really are. 

A humorous, animal detective story for 7 – 12 year-olds, and great fun for parents to read to younger children.

Leon Chameleon PI and the case of the kidnapped mouse
Recipient of the 2013 Kart Kids Book List Award 

A humorous, animal detective story for 7-12 year-olds. 

"When Mr Woodland Mouse mysteriously disappears, Constable Mole is quick to enlist the help of Leon Chameleon, Private Investigator, whose expertise enabled the Pigeon Valley Police to solve the case of the missing canary eggs. 
After organising a search, Leon realises that there is only one creature in the valley who can spring the captured mouse from his prison. But just when he thinks Mr Woodland Mouse is safely on his way home, the plan goes horribly wrong..." 

All the animal details of food, habits, and lifestyle are true to nature (apart from Constable Mole’s sunglasses!) and the animals solve the crimes using their own natural abilities. Children will absorb much knowledge of the small creatures of Africa without being aware of it. 

A section of interesting facts has been added to this second detective story in the Leon Chameleon PI series. It provides valuable and little-known information on chameleons, moles and other creatures featured in the story.

The Race (an inspiring story for left-handers)
Vicky is left-handed and teased for being clumsy, but a visit from her Gran changes everything. 

Vicky’s Granddad has died and her Gran is coming for a visit. Vicky wants to cheer her up by embroidering a cushion as a gift, but Vicky is left-handed and she struggles to learn how to sew. She decides that winning a race in the school sports might be a better idea – but can she do it, especially when Graham threatens to spoil all her plans? 

The story highlights some of the challenges faced by left-handers. 

At the end of the book is advice on how to help left-handers; how to tell if a child is left-handed; the correct way for a left-hander to hold a pencil and to slant the paper; famous left-handers; percentage of the population who are left-handed; career choices for left-handers and cultural issues for left-handers.
