Lending from a local Library
13 February 2020 13:11 (GMT)[font="PT Sans Narrow", sans-serif]Hi all, I am a relatively new user to the kindle paperwhite, and really enjoying it. But I'm hoping to get some help from fellow users. I would like to get library books on my kindle from my local library, and they suggested, Borrowbox, and Overdrive, I have found that borrowbox can't be downloaded on my kindle, and my library isn't on overdrive, and I can't get overdrive on my kindle, so I am at a loss. And wondered if anyone had found a way of doing this. [/font]
[font="PT Sans Narrow", sans-serif]Any help is appreciated [/font]

Question: Reading PDFs on Kindle Fire!
24 December 2019 08:08 (GMT)Hello Friends,
Just got a Kindle Fire from a bookstore for about $20. Most of my reading material come in the form of PDFs. I've manged to load them into my Kindle and have been reading them via the Docs App, but I'm starting to get irritated since I can't bookmark pages within http://tradevenue.se/ it.
Is there a way for me to bookmark my PDFs on my Kindle? Do I have to convert my files or something?
Sorry, it seems like questions regarding PDFs get posted a lot. I just wanna bookmark stuff so I can jump to them on a later date.
Where do you guys get your ebooks?
20 December 2019 12:08 (GMT)Hello everyone,,
you can use irc chat, you need a software to connect to it like mirc, then create account and connect to irc highway then enter to the channel called ebooks and there you can search for the book you want
"avxhm dot se" is a site you can get books from, the links provided on this site to download the book, usually send you to icerbox or uploaded or other sharing sites, these sites wont allow a download without a premium account, but there is a way arround this, lets say the link provided is icerbox, you just need to copy the icerbox link provided to a 3rd party site which let you download the file for free, just google search "icerbox leeches" or "icerbox premium link generator", one of the links that works for icerbox is: "alemdarleech dot com", register a free account and there you go, tested it work the only downside to these 3rd party sites is that you must go through like dozen of advertisment befor the real download link appear
downloading from archive is a legal way like borrowing a book from public library, it have all sort of books, you just need adobe digital edition software and a free account sign up, after you downloaded the book you cannot open it in another software other than digital edition, because it is copyrighted by drm, just use a software to remove drm and there you go
Does pricing makes a big difference when choosing an illustration service?
16 December 2019 17:46 (GMT)Well, whenever any publisher thinks of publishing a book whether it be for adults or it be for children the thing that they are usually most concerned about is probably the pricing. Now, when talking specifically about children's illustration pricing than the publishers mostly prefer illustrators that give them services in less prices. It’s a rule of business. After all most publishers are publishing because they want to make money out of it and the lower the price they get the higher their chances of making a higher profit are. What other concerns might publishers be having when publishing children’s books?
Are Audiobooks and reading an equal experience?
16 December 2019 07:42 (GMT)Hello everyone,,
I used to be an avid reader and it was something I genuinely loved to do. About 2 years or so ago I found myself not having enough time to read and after another few months I found I had completely stopped reading and it was something that bothered me and I tried multiple times to get back on the horse and jump into another book but again I seemed to never be able to find time to read and most attempts failed 5 or 6 chapters in https://homestuffpro.com.
Fast forward to about 4 months ago I started working in a factory doing 3-4 12 hour shifts a week and I started getting into Audiobooks and I have been absolutely thrown back into my love of books. For me personally it is an equal experience to actually reading and its grown on me so much, I actually look forward to work so I can listen to this series I've started and its really captured my imagination.
Id love to know what the communities opinion is on Audiobooks vs Reading and do you guys rate them as an equal experience or do Audiobooks miss anything or vica versa.
eBooks in Arabic
03 November 2019 21:10 (GMT)(My apology if this is the wrong forum, I am a beginner.) There are many eBooks for learners of Arabic, but I have so far found only 1 that I am able to read.: 'Conversational Arabic Dialogues' (Touri). It is the only such book that I have found in which the Arabic text is rendered in a typeface (just) large enough to enable me to read it. In every other such book that I have found, the English typeface is huge -- quite unnecessarily so --- and the Arabic typeface is tiny. Arabic script is full of tiny dots and pronunciation-marks that must be made visible if the words are to be understood. How can I get this message to the producers of these books ?. .

FREE through 2/20 Chasing the Son
16 February 2020 14:38 (GMT)Chasing the Son (Green Berets)
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.
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?

07 February 2020 13:59 (GMT)Area 51: Invasion
The Ancient Enemy has arrived.
A Swarm Battle Core is orbiting Earth preparing for the Reaping.
The remnants of mankind desperately try to either survive or fight back.
But they aren’t certain what they’re going to face. All they have are myths and legends. And when the Swarm actually does land, it’s worse than any of those.
Major Mike Turcotte, the hero in defeating the Airlia, makes a desperate attempt to stop the Swarm by going directly to the Core. On Earth, the future of mankind hides in the Facility, an underground self-contained ecosystem. And across the planet others prepare for the last fight.
From an Assassin in New York City who performs a heroic act of sacrifice, to the enigmatic Darlene in her trailer in Marfa, Texas, to Nosferatu and Nekhbet, the last two Elder undead hiding on an island in Puget Sound.
It appears there is no hope.
But there is always hope, but sometimes it takes a tremendous, unthinkable sacrifice.

"Thelma and Louise go clandestine."-Kirkus Reviews on Bodyguard of Lie.
Who polices the world of covert operations?
Enter the Cellar, the most secret spy organization hiding deep within the United States.
Two women become inextricably involved in a dangerous web of lies, intrigue, and betrayal as they fight for their lives and the safety of their country. Neeley is the lover and protégé of Gant, a Cellar operative, and trying to pick up the pieces of her life after Gant's death and unveil a mystery that he always held close. Hannah, a housewife, is equally lost after her husband disappears. They soon learn that the men in their lives shared a dangerous secret, one some very powerful people would shed blood to protect. Neeley and Hannah's meeting sets a decades-old plan into motion and puts their lives at risk.
They couldn't come from more different worlds, but as they try to escape the people who seem determined to kill them, Hannah and Neeley discover they have at least one thing in common: they've both been living a lie.
Crisscrossing the globe, the women find themselves in a deadly game of survival, one that they must win in order to keep the United States safe not only from vicious acts of terror, but from its own powers that be. And if they ever hope to uncover the truth about the lovers they thought they knew, Neeley and Hannah first must learn the truth about themselves. But when the Cellar is involved, there is no such thing as coincidence, and the truth is always protected by a Bodyguard of Lies.
