His  Grandfather's  Garden

Jannie Jaacobs was in the second-hand car business. Or, to be more specific, Jannie was in the business of getting cars started. (Even if the keys were not always available.)

But having re-located his business from Capetown to Jo'burg (with a considerable degree of urgency and haste), Jannie was presented with a problem.

He was no longer able to dig his beloved Grandfather's garden for him, and the Old Man had now injured his hip.

...... Jannie had to find a solution: fast.

kindle for kids

08 December 2016 21:48 (GMT)

hi everyone 
i am re-posting this entry as i may have entered it in the wrong section 

I am interested in buying a book reader for my grand-daughter who is 7 years young  and is making great strides in reading.

But there are a few questions to which i cannot find an answer : 
  • i will be buying the kindle as a gift and the idea is that she reads English books .She lives in Barcelona (Spain) : the question is : Will she (her parents) be able to buy more books in English from Barcelona , presumably using a Spanish bank card ?   ( this is a problem i have experienced when living in France where i bought my own kindle , all was fine to buy books in the French language , but for most books in English , i was told that i cannot do so , and now that i live in England , i have no problem in buying Books in English , but i cannot buy most books in French ..i was told that one can go round the problem by changing the bank card to a local one , but if one does it often , Amazon blocks the kindle ... In the case of my grand daughter she will be always buying books in English , but the cards her parents will be using in future will be Spanish and i fear there might be a problem 
  • I believe that i can follow her progress , and what books she buys :  how is that shown : by email or does the info get downloaded on my own kindle ? 
  • Can her progress be monitored by more than one person: for ex  her mother , and me , her grand-dad ? 
If anyone can help me or put me on the right track, i would be most grateful 
All the best [/url][url=http://www.kuforum.co.uk/amazon_search.php?kw=]

New to E Books and Kindle and need to understand how they work.

23 January 2017 09:24 (GMT)

I'm so new to E Books and Kindle that when I attempted to type a title for this thread it appeared here and I had to cut and post it to the Thread Subject.
My primary interest in this subject is that when I'm writing something possible a letter to a provocative friend who has written to me in provocative terms and whom I wish to contradict I go into the Internet looking for ammunition.  If I find something illuminating on let us say, Chinese history I can buy it but then I have to look for information in that book in order to be able to use it in my discourse.  The problem with that is that between reading a sentence in a book and typing it onto a Word page I normally forget what I have just read.  It might be something to do with dyslexia which I am afflicted with or simply a rubbish memory.  From experience I know that when I have scanned a page from a book and pasted it onto the letter that I'm writing to my friend the memory loss disappears and I find it very useful. 
I have recently read “One’s Company. A Journey to China.”  Peter Fleming a rather arrogant young man who I remember quoting Lord Melbourne in this book saying something like, Things are coming toa pretty pass when religion isallowed to invade private life.”  I should have taken a note of where the quote was but I didn’t so now I need to see what context Fleming used the quote and although I have skimmed the book twice I can’t find it.  So, the first book I will buy if it is to be found as an Ebook or Kindle will be “One’s Company. A Journey to China.” where I hope that I will be able to a Find device if that is possible.
So firstly.  Is it possible to access a book that way and find details?
Secondly, where can I find something that will introduce me to the character of E Books and Kindle answering questions such as, Does it make sense to have them both.  


That is my primary reason for wanting to look into E Books and Kindle and I know nothing about them

Trying to Survive Dystopian/Horror - Free until 1/12 at Midnight

10 January 2017 00:02 (GMT)

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01KD0QE74

"Great series. Now in my top 5 zombie stories. Up there w/ Mark Tufo, RR Hayward to name just a couple."
"Loved this series. The author is not afraid to lose characters so be prepared, but it is realistic and well written."

The night it began, all we could do was listen to the chaos. 
The sirens, car crashes, gunshots and never ending cries for help resonated throughout the neighborhood like a symphony of evil – rising up from hell itself. 
There was no warning. 

“Why the f*** couldn’t it be like it is in the movies?” 

Series complete.

EDITORIAL REVIEWS
“Intense and moving. Delicate like the touch of cotton sheets in the summer. A page-turner, kidnaps the reader with impeccable style and storytelling worth a prize.” - Booksblog
“Casiraghi’s style is smooth, tight and spare.” – Il Corriere della Sera
“A deeply human journey, both painful and magnetic. (…) A bittersweet ending which leaves you with food for thought and a half-smile on your face.” DG MAG
“A craftily-woven plot that sucks the reader in with the pace of a psychological thriller, for such becomes Sergio’s life, filled with questions, traps, revelations, all leading to the final discovery of oneself.” Stilos
“The story unfolds in a gripping and suspended atmosphere, where euphoria, desperation and self-doubt come together in equal measure (…) Casiraghi’s novel is like a mirror where, beyond the twists and turns of the plot, the reader finds another tale to identify with. It is one of those stories in which, even without accidents or memory loss, each one of us can become the main character and, in the end, must come to terms with the past…” Liberazione
