Books missing on Glowlight 3

I haven't paid a lot of attention to my Glowlight 3 for a while. When I got it I put some books on it and I've read some of those but I haven't really tried playing with it in any way since then. I remember having the problem of books disappearing from it so I gathered 500 epub books, reset the device and copied all the books to the NOOK folder. It told me I had 438 books on board. But when I connected it again to my PC all the books were there. Next I began going through the books one by one...

PDF>MOBI Random blank pages inserted no matter what I do.

Hello everyone, I have an issue I've been dealing with for hours now and I completely don't know what to do anymore. I have a couple of pdf books (very obscure, scanned, with no other formats available) and I've been trying to convert them into .mobi for a 2016 basic Kindle. I convert because PDFs on Kindle tend to stop working after two dozens of pages or so. When I convert and view it on the Kindle, I am getting random blank pages approximately every 1-3 pages. For example page 25, blank, page...

Reading Gallimaufry

Here it is again, a brief gathering of a few books I have read recently that don't make it into longer posts. No reflection on the quality of the book in any way. I just don't have quite as much I want to say about them. Notes taken from my notes as I read ... Transcription ~ Kate Atkinson 'In wartime, truth is so precious that she should always be attended by a bodyguard of lies'.

Dealing with Social Stigmatization of the Second Amendment

The effort to get companies like FedEx to cut ties with the NRA is part of an effort to stigmatize the Second Amendment and those who defend it. (Wikimedia Commons photo by Raysonho) U.S.A. –(AmmoLand.com)- The good news on the Second Amendment is that the courts have been shifting in a pro-Second Amendment direction. With the Heller and McDonald rulings, the Supreme Court has formally ruled what we all knew was the truth: The Second Amendment is an individual right. However, the bad news is t...

Movie: Alpha

This could become you new favorite movie. Highly recommended. Pleistocene, 20,000 BP Europe. Filmed in Canada. Film goes after authenticity and does a great job. It's a coming-of-age story, revolving around the unlikely alliance of a young hunter and a wolf. A great portrayal of the stark reality of life during the last ice age.

Overlord (new movie)

The Overlord movie is a fictional story set in WW-II with a good bit of classic sci-fi and shoot-em-up thrown in. It's an adventure of sorts, where American soldiers stumble upon secret Nazi laboratory. It's a JJ Abrams film and follows his typical methods of excitement and storytelling. I must admit, I loved it. It's an absurd story, but I knew that going in. The fighting + shooting, the characters, the action, all over the top. Just the way I like it. If you like action, this one has it.
