Unlink Goodreads from one kindle but leave on another?

19 October 2018 10:09 (GMT)

Is there a way to unlink Goodreads from some but not all of my kindles?
My Amazon account has 5 Kindles linked to it. One for me, my son, my mom, my aunt and her daughter.
All of these kindles were bought by me through my account. I don't mind letting my family members read my books (since I am the only one that "pays" for the books) but what I do have a problem with is that when they start or finish a book, my goodreads updates to say that I am reading or have read a book that I actually haven't. I buy Romance and some YA books for my mom and sister but I don't read those. These are mostly free books and they sometimes buy them too. They haven't ever "bought" non-free books so I don't have a problem there.
However, I have asked them several times to not mark a book as "currently reading" or "read" and still randomly see a book I haven't read on Goodreads. I wish there was a way to turn them off (other than parental controls) since these Kindles are not "mine" anymore, parental controls block them from using some other features then they have to send it to me for me to do.https://inro.in/showbox/ https://inro.in/mobdro/ https://inro.in/tutuapp/

What's the 1st generation Oasis like nowadays?

19 October 2018 10:07 (GMT)

I'm thinking of buying a 1st gen. Oasis off Ebay, because I think that was the best e-reader Amazon ever made. I don't like the current 7" model.
I'm guessing that the Oasis firmware has been updated since it's release. For those who have one, what is it like now? Does it have the inverted colors feature?https://inro.in/lucky-patcher/ https://inro.in/vidmate/

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 10/19-10/20 Warfare taken to the virtual plane

19 October 2018 12:47 (GMT)

PSYCHIC WARRIOR
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.”

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.

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.[b]

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.

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.

FREE 10/15-10/16 The Green Berets-- Eternity Base

15 October 2018 13:37 (GMT)

ETERNITY BASE (Green Berets)
Maverick federal employee Sammy Pintella, obsessed with uncovering the fate of her MIA father, makes a startling discovery while rifling through some inactive government files. A dozen, faded black and white photos seem to point to the existence of a secret US Military base built in the frozen wastelands of Antarctica during the height of the Cold War.

Aided by Special Forces veteran Dave Riley, she heads for Antarctica. But they aren’t alone. Spies, North Koreans, and other shadowy forces are also en route, because deep inside Eternity Base is something people will go to extreme lengths to get: a cache of nuclear warheads.

Kansas City Journal Enquirer. “What a delicious adventure-thriller. Its clever, plausible plot gives birth to lots of action and suspense.” 
San Francisco Examiner. “A fast-paced thriller with compelling main characters and incredibly determined foes.”

FREE 10/11 DUTY An Epic Novel of West Point and the Civil War

11 October 2018 13:30 (GMT)

DUTY
In the vein of HBO’s Rome miniseries, two fictional characters, former West Point cadets, Lucius Rumble and Elijah Cord, are involved in the decisions at many of the major crossroads of our history.

They go from West Point, to Washington DC, through First Bull Run, the Monitor battling the Merrimac, to Grant’s initial successes at Forts Henry and Donelson. We arrive on the precipice of failure as Grant’s army is routed on the first day of the battle of Shiloh and sits in the rain, under an oak treat, contemplating retreat.

They swore oaths, both personal and professional. They were fighting for country, for a way of life and for family. Classmates carried more than rifles and sabers into battle. They had friendships, memories, children and wives. They had innocence lost, promises broken and glory found.

Praise for Mayer's war fiction: 
Stephen Coonts: “A scorcher of a novel!”
WEB Griffin: “Exciting & Authentic!”

THE GATE
What if the Japanese had succeeded in its atomic weapon program in World War II? And one of the results of that program now lies at the base of the Golden Gate Bridge?[b]

Two story lines, one present, one past, come together in this thriller.

Lake, a covert operative for the US is now on a race with time against rogue militia terrorists to find and destroy this weapon before the terrorists in order to prevent a nuclear disaster of epic proportions.

As Russian forces close in on the infamous Unit 731 Concentration Camp, the Japanese load one of the two bombs they’ve developed on a submarine bound for the United States. They detonate the other to destroy all evidence. 

Present day United States. Lake learns that various factions are all searching for something in the San Francisco area. Something powerful. Something deadly if in the wrong hands. Battling the Japanese Yakuza, North Korean agents, home-grown terrorists, and betrayal in his own organization, Lake must uncover the history the Japanese atomic bomb program in order to prevent certain disaster and an all out war. 

A modern thriller steeped in uncovering the secrets of the past.

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