Tongue Tied: Untangling Communication in Sex, Kink, and Relationships

Tongue Tied: Untangling Communication in Sex, Kink, and Relationships $10 Kindle/%15 physical from Amazon I wasn’t intending to read Tongue Tied initially. I was previously unfamiliar with Stella Harriss (who I now know is an experienced sex educator and coach as well as an erotica writer) and, perhaps more importantly, felt pretty familiar with communicating about sex. I’ve frequently read about the topic. I’ve argued that we need to talk more about sex and do it in a healthy way that isn...

Writing within writing: Italics vs Quotations

So, I've noticed a tendency in my writing: whenever something is written within my stories, like a note or a sign, I sometimes put them in quotes and sometimes do italics. I'm pretty sure this is due to ignorance of some English rule I was taught and long-since forgotten. Can anyone inform me what the proper instances are for them, or provide proper learning material (PDFs would be great)? I know things like book titles are italicized while chapters are in quotes, but I can't recall seeing anyt...

Does the Oasis track books read?

One of my favorite features about the Kobos is that is automatically tracks what books I've finished vs. what I am in the middle of reading vs. books unread - and I can filter by that status. I read a lot, so this is great to help me track what I've read and what I've started reading but got sidetracked from. However, I am considering buying an Oasis because my second Kobo reader just died (just like the first) within 18 months of buying it and Kobo customer service is complete crap, so I am l...

Is it possible to change the menu font?

I'm having a great time with KOReader so far, and I was wondering if it was possible to change the menu font. I don't have any difficulty changing the book font, but I don't see any option to change the UI/menu font. Is there a file I can replace? Currently I'm using version v2019.02-180-g2536cc2_2019-03-08 on a Kobo Glo HD.

Android client with OPDS or other means to download my audiobooks?

I have DRM-free audiobooks that I want to listen to on my android phone. Are there any clients with OPDS or other support to download the books seamlessly? Like Librevox or Libby can do from their sources. Or are there external clients to download the books that will work well with audiobook players. OPDS clients, something else. In the past I've used a subsonic client to download the files from my subsonic server to get them on the phone. But checking if there is some better/easier way to do ...

kindle paperwhite and calibre

For many years I used a Sony eReader with calibre. So when I bought a Kindle I continued using calibre to manage my ebook library. I just load books from calibre onto my kindle paperwhite when I want to read them. Because of this most of my books are not actually in the kindle cloud. If my kindle were to break or get lost, I would lose my place in all the books I have on there - and I suppose I would also lose things like my bookmarks. Given these circumstances, is there is a way for me to keep ...

iPad Reading mobi on iPad - my struggles

Let me start by saying I have never been a fan of the way Apple locks down everything. My issue wouldn't be there if i had an Android tablet, but I have inherited an iPad Air 2. I like it in that it is solid and I prefer the screen aspect ratio, making it ideal for reading. But, the struggles I have been having getting my mobi file into the Kindle app, or some of the other eReader apps, has been extensive. With an Android, I just drag and drop - a non-brainer. But with the ipad, they want you t...

Smith & Wesson Issues Safety Alert and Inspection Procedure for M&P15-22 Firearms

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. –  -(AmmoLand.com)- Smith & Wesson Corp. announced today that the Company has identified two M&P15-22 firearms from recent production on which the breech face counter bore depth was not within manufacturing specification. In those firearms, the lack of depth may allow the bolt, upon closing, to crush the rim of the case, causing the round to fire, cycling the bolt, and potentially resulting in multiple discharges without depressing the trigger. This issue can occur in the f...

Trophy Hunting Is The Solution To Conserving Africa’s Wildlife

Trophy Hunting U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Public discussion of how trophy hunting fits into the wildlife situation in Africa has been triggered again with an editorial in Africa Geographic entitled: “Trophy hunting in Africa is in decline, and no longer pays its way.” Such a suggestion is misleading at best. It does, however, demonstrate the need for a more complete understanding of the entire picture so that precious wildlife resources can be sustained in wild places now and into the future. W...

Weekend Cooking: Reading, Eating, Organzing

Is it spring yet? It's still snowing around here, so despite what the calendar says, I'll be wearing sweaters for at least a month. On the other hand, I had my first asparagus of the season this week, and I'll soon break down and buy strawberries. Our local produce is 8-10 weeks away (unless you have a greenhouse). Today's post is all about some food-related books I've been reading. Although I didn't cook anything new and exciting for dinner this week, we discovered a pretty yummy (and easy) ch...
