Review: Cinnamon-Soaked Wheat Berry Salad

We really enjoyed this salad from the award winning “Afro-Vegan: Farm-Fresh African, Caribbean, and Southern Flavors Remixed” cookbook by Bryant Terry tonight. The carrots, apricots and wheat berries offer a lovely combination of sweet and crunchy and it is especially nice with the cinnamon flavor. It is the second recipe we’ve made so far. The book arrived last week. We have a lot of mustard greens growing, so last night I made the Curried Tofu with Mustard Greens recipe. ...

Americans are still divided over the reported results of the 2020 election.

Several “mainstream” polling firms, and the legacy media outlets that tout their bogus findings, have disgraced themselves with wildly inaccurate predictions that managed to tilt almost entirely in a single direction. ...

Pipe Symbol

So on my Pocketbook Touch HD 3 keyboard, there is no pipe symbol (it looks like this: | ). This is a problem because the wifi password has that symbol in it, and I cannot connect to the network.

Goodreads problem

I've tried many times to set up Goodreads in KOreader (the secret is SO long!) but am sure I typed in the whole thing correctly. The only way to test it (as it doesn't give you a direct response) is to my knowledge to search something. Every search has failed even though I checked and double checked the key and secret. How do I find out what is going wrong?

Organizing books on Kindle?

I don't have a particularly large collection, but I do like the idea of keeping things in folders organized by series or topic. I noticed an option labeled "create new collection" on my kindle paperwhite, but I don't know if it will play nice with books put on my kindle via calibre. Any tips or ideas on keeping things organized would be appreciated. I would really like to do subfolders but just being able to keep everything in a series together is enough for me.
