I tried to convert it with the K2ODFOpt software

Hi I have downloaded a PDF format book to read on my tablet with either Prestigio e-Reader or EzPdf. The book reads fine with Acrobat on my PC, but it doesn'i open in the tablet ( Samsung galaxy 4), as it does with all the other PDF books. I tried to convert it with the K2ODFOpt software, as I have done many times, but it still doesn't open in the e-reader. I ran a sample of the converted book in Acrobat Reader and it works perfectly. It is an old book belonging to the C.G. Jung Collected W...

Calibre/anti virus problem

Hi I have an odd problem and I am hoping there is a solution. A couple of days ago I changed anti virus s/w to Bitdefender. However this morning when opened Calibre it wanted to update which I did. When I opened Calibre after updating it, bitdefender jumped in and blocking it opening a file (I think library file #5), Bitd asked me if I wanted to set up an exemption, which I did. When I opened Calibre again it said that particular file was corrupted and went to backups. All appeared good un...

Billy Sledge, at your disposal

I've self published on Amazon. My writing goals were literary, having employed an unconventional narrative perspective, and having written in a poetic-prose style. My subject and form does not follow any popular trend. Perhaps I deserve to remain in the oblivion of Amazon's vastness. Below is the description currently accompanying my little book, DANGLING PROPOSITIONS: "The Supersoic" "Instrument" "Not to Behold" ($4.99): "...blest are those/Whose blood and judgment are so well commingled/That ...

For more than 100 years, New York City's Tony-award-winning Drama Book Shop has been a stalwart of the city's thronging theater community; but like so many independent bookstores, it has struggled (it recently announced that it would have to leave its Times Square location on January 20 due to rent hikes).

Gun Trends

It seems lately, a lot of the cool kids are switching to DA/SA guns. I still go back and forth but started carrying my Sig P229 a bit back. I did this primarily because I like AIWB as a concept. But don’t think I’d trust myself if I a moment required a hasty re-holster with striker fired gun.

Gardens get Buffaloed

Here’s a book that raises all kinds of interesting questions. Like: Can a city have its own style of gardening? Assuming that it can, how does such a style arise? What are its main characteristics? Do the people living in this city know that there’s a gardening style just for them? How did a city known mainly for blizzards and the invention of the chicken wing as a bar snack get so gardening-crazy? I may not be the one to answer most of these questions. For one thing, my ...
