Pairing with bluetooth headphones

08 December 2018 10:55 (GMT)

Hello there, I am very happy to be a new member of the community!
I have received the new Kindle Paperwhite for my birthday last month, and I finally managed to have my audible collection on it. However I can't pair my brand new Sony WH-1000XM3 with it, as the list of available connected bluetooth devices shows nothing. I have already tried to switch the Kindle on and off - even resetted it to factory settings. Both kindle and headphones firmware are up to date.
I would appreciate your help on that issue!
Best regards,
Geneviève

e-book in a second language

26 November 2018 11:12 (GMT)

I have published a Kindle book (in English language) 'Tales from the Arctic' on Amazon, and although I am aware that there are 'apps' available for some e-book readers' devices that can translate the text to their respective language, Kindle does not support text in cyrillic, so would it be bending the rules if I produced the book as a stand-alone e-book?

Non Dan Brown recommendations please

23 September 2018 17:27 (GMT)

Hi,
I have a problem in that while I like novels with the general theme of historical mysteries, everything seems to be compared to Dan Brown.   Now I'm sure that I'm not the only one out there who thinks that Dan Brown is a lousy writer and anything that compares to Dan Brown is therefore bound to be rubbish.   In other words a sure way of putting me off a book is to say that it's 'a must read for all fans of Dan Brown'.   For me that's the kiss of death.

What puts me off is that Dan Brown presents so much fiction as being fact.   What I mean by that is that he uses background fact to illustrate a fictional premise that isn't fact at all.   Some people respond to that by saying 'well it's just fiction so it doesn't matter', but I think it does.   For example one of the Scott Mariani books (now his books are good fun) uses the history of the Cathars as a basis, and that history does have a basis in fact, whereas The Da Vinci Code contains evidence supporting his fiction that is itself fiction, or at least evidence so ill-researched that it's as good as fiction. 

I was just looking at some Paul Sussman Kindle books which looked good until I noticed the '... must read ... Dan Brown ...', so have held back from buying.   I then thought perhaps I should come to this forum to get ideas from you good people as to places to look for a good read.   Please don't anyone suggest the Matt Drake series as I thought they made Dan Brown look quite good.

I'm not looking to get into an argument over, and will not be drawn into a discussion on the pros and cons of Dan Brown's output (or the prodigious Matt Drake stuff either), I'd just like to have some idea of what is wheat and what is chaff from the huge amount of material that's out there.

Thanks.

Kindle Paperwhite loses brightness

20 September 2018 21:52 (GMT)

Now and again my Kindle Paperwhite will turn down the screen brightness of its own accord. This never happens when it's in use, but, for example,  if I shut the Kindle overnight and open up the next morning the brightness will have been turned down. Sometimes it's turned so low that I can barely see the options to select to turn the brightness back up.

Any ideas?

Steve

FREE 4/17 through 4/21 The Green Berets: Chasing the Son

17 April 2019 13:34 (GMT)

Chasing the Son
Place, time and family. Three things that shape individuals. Sometimes with love. Other times with violence. 

Former covert operative, Horace Chase, has just discovered he has a son; a son who fled the Military Institute of South Carolina a year and a half ago after being accused of murder. The victim is the grandson of the most powerful woman in Charleston, South Carolina, who has sworn vengeance.

Chase teams up with another former covert operative, Dave Riley, and one of Riley’s old CIA friends, Kate Westland, to find his son and uncover the truth. Barely into their investigation they become caught up in a land development deal for Daufuskie Island worth hundreds of millions.

Chase and Riley’s covert background has taught them many things, but the most valuable has been that nothing is ever as it appears as an old nemesis rears her head, hell bent on revenge against them both along with a good helping of greed. 

[Image: 51i-XxZ3vHL.jpg]
And in the shadows hovers THE CELLAR, the agency that polices the world of covert operations. 

One by one, the competitors for the land deal are being killed and the threat to Chase’s son grows. And nothing, not the present, not the past, and no one, are as they appear to be. 

Who will be left standing?

FREE 4/13 through 4/15 Why did Titanic Sink? The 7 Cascade Events

13 April 2019 13:20 (GMT)

Stuff Does Just Happen: The Gift of Failure
Saying “sh!t happens” indicates events are random, have no meaning and there is no accountability or responsibility. It indicates such events could just as easily happen again and there’s nothing we can do about them. Bull.
This book is about catastrophes and how to avoid them, mitigate their effects and learn from them as seen from the perspective of the Masters of Chaos: United States Army Special Forces (Green Berets). Taking the attitude shit happens is negative and is fatal. In this book we learn why propane has a smell; how crash positions in airplanes were refined; how economic bubbles happen over and over; how failures in leadership lead to murder, cannibalism and massacre; and much more.

Titanic: Systematic Failure
Kegworth Plane Crash: The Danger of Deferring to Authority and Experts
Little Big Horn: Leadership Failure
New London Schoolhouse Explosion: Lack of Focus
The Donner Party: Social Disintegration
From Tulips to the Housing Bubble: Greed Overwhelms Reality
Apollo 13: Success Snatched from the Jaws of Catastrophe
[Image: 518GKfj8esL.jpg]

The bottom line is we can predict and prevent most catastrophes because every one has at least one man made factor, of the 7 cascade events, involved. In other words, we have control over whether shit happens. But it means changing a complacent mindset, getting rid of delusional thinking, and viewing the world around us in a Green Beret way.

Because sh!t doesn’t just happen.

James Duncan - "Crazy On You" free kindle download 15.04.19!

04 April 2019 20:42 (GMT)

Crazy On You Kindle Edition
Free to download Monday 15th April!  If you download and enjoy a review would be much appreciated!
https://www.amazon.com...  

https://www.amazon.co.uk...   And all other Amazon markets worldwide!

The top east-end London crime syndicate, the insane Pope Crew, fly out to New York to negotiate a mega-bucks weapon trafficking deal with the barbaric and merciless Mafia Don, Giovanni Commarata. All is well; then Archie Pope, a kitten and flower loving softie with a tough exterior, falls in love with Isabella Commarata. Very bad move. Commarata has had every young man who has shown the slightest interest in his precious daughters, hastily executed.

Giovanni Commarata and the Pope Crew are at war! Gun fights, betrayals, warfare on a battlefield scale all ensue. Both sides are either the Destroyers or Destroyed. All mayhem breaks loose. But this is also a rom-com, it is about two young people falling in love under the most difficult of circumstances.

The story is narrated by Archie Pope and Isabella Commarata. James Duncan writes for Archie Pope, using UK English and a fair whack of cockney slang. J Kahele, writes for Isabella Commarata, using American-English. This is a collaboration between an American romance writer and an English comedy writer.

So transatlantic thrills and spills a-plenty, with something to warm your heart!

I observed that the “tramp’s” hands were made out of plastic! I detected movement inside his ridiculously ginormous coat that could comfortably have contained two men. I made an instant decision. As Bell stooped over to drop the score into the cap, I yanked her back by the arm, simultaneously kicking the tramp in the mush – giving him a mouthful of steel-toe-capped boot. Screaming, he hit the deck, as the bullet he had fired from his pistol went awry, hitting a passing motorcyclist in the shoulder, causing the wounded motorcyclist to plough into the rear of the car driving in front of him. The bike toppled and the motorcyclist fell into the road.

‘Nice try, wanker!’ I growled, putting my pistol to the head of the phoney tramp and without hesitation, pulling the trigger. I watched the blood spurt from his exploded face with angry satisfaction.

‘Archie – look out!’

A silver Ford Fusion Titanium had mounted the pavement, and was hurtling towards us, with the intent of mowing us all down...
