Watcha Reading?

Finished up What Zombies Fear, was a decent read, but, I will say that not good enough to entice me to purchase the follow up books, as well as they follow ups just aren’t as interesting. They delve way to much into fantasy and strange new powers for zombies and some that are bitten by them.

I was interested in reading It’s Not Quite Saturday Night At The Cavern (Eric Beemer) but the formatting for both my Kindle Touch and on 2 different Droids was terrible.

Started The Chimera Vector, too jumpy as it moved along, gave up. And Groom Lake. Looked interesting, couldn’t even get past the first couple of pages. Never created that interest.

Dead Stop was interesting. Not great. Could plod along at times. Another sorta zombie story, I’ll give it 3 our of 5 “bites”.

On to The Greatest Domestic Threat, which, so far, has threatened to bog down, but then the author pulls it back. About 70% of the way through.

BTW, I really like the upgrade to the Kindle Touch. Very user friendly.

    I have a Kindle Fire, and, for some reason, Amazon just will not add a collections capability to it. I have no idea why.

    oh come on!!!!!!
    I’m still on Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time. Book 8 of 14.

  3. I’ve never understood why Amazon puts so little functionality into either the Fire or their Kindle apps. Why not being able to search by download date? Or even just search?

    Come on, GB, 1 a week, 1 a week 🙂

    It’s just… a … very… … long …. … series.

    I’m a Nook person myself and once I got it in my grimey little paws I modded it to be an Android based tablet. I love it.

    As for what I am reading, does looking for parts for a new computer count?

    Gitarcarver, are you looking at NewEgg?
    Great prices and being in the business, I do most of my shopping there.

    Yep. I am a big fan of NewEgg not only because of prices, but because of their customer service. A friend recommended Directron and they seem to be good too.

    I stopped following types of chips, speeds and all that for several years, so much of the time this past wek has been spent catching up on that.

    The new system may not be in the budget, but just like Teach’s “You Might Be A Warmist If…” series of posts, just because I may not get what is shown, it doesn’t hurt to window shop.

    If you have any questions, I can help you out. Computers is something I DO know something about.

    Well, for already built systems, IBuyPower is a great place to play around in. It allows you to modify your rigs. If one is not careful, you can build a pc costing upwards of $10 grand. (drooool)

    TigerDirect is another site like Newegg. They tend to battle for cheapest pricing and are Purchase Order friendly.

    What you need to get all depends on what you intend to do with your system.

    Now you sound like Obama, always Blamestorming

    Well, as long as you are reading. Personally, I think it is a shame that so many people do not read, but, to each their own. One of my coworkers received a Fire HD for Christmas. He never uses it to read a book.

    Dang it.. I’M NOT! I’M NOT! I’M NOT! I’M NOT!

    I need my blankie……

    Thanks for the offer.

    I have never had good luck with Tiger Direct, so I tend to stay away from them.


    I modded the Nook to add more functionality to it. I have the Kindle and Nook apps on it, as well as a third party reader for other e-formats. With the memory card, I have more room for more books and mags. Currently, I have “Washington’s God” as serious reading when I have more than a couple of minutes and “Thomas Jefferson and Creme Brulee” for “light” reading such as waiting in an office for an appointment or something like that.

    I don’t have the Nook HD and have never watched a movie on it. I use the Nook to take notes at meetings and things like that. Access to the Google store is a plus as well.

    Not using a Nook or Kindle to read on is like buying a Green Egg cooker, and only liking microwave cooking while being a vegan. 😉
