Looking for waterproof e-reader with large or expandable storage

Hello, I recently bought a bunch of e-books from some independent sites. These come in epub format, and I am interested in getting a new e-reader so that I can really enjoy these because my phone just isn't doing it. I have a Kindle 4 that I haven't used in a while, but I remember it worked well enough, I was mainly just tired of paying full retail on e-books when I could pretty much always get paperbacks at the same price new, and even cheaper used. That being said, I am looking for the follo...

6 Reasons Why You Should Be Drinking Cinnamon Tea This Winter

When we think about chilly winter evenings, what could be more perfect than bundling up with a warm drink at the end of a long day. Among the long list of drink favorites, a steaming cup of tea is among the most popular choices. While there are many different tea variants, we highly recommend giving cinnamon tea a try this winter. Cinnamon tea is made by infusing the spice in boiling water for a robust, aromatic drink. Not only is the tea soothing and flavorful, but it offers many benef...

Dill Pickled Eggs

I know pickled eggs are so old school, yes, something my mum or grandma would have made..... But, if you love dill pickles, you'll love this recipe. These eggs taste just like burger pickles. A part and parcel of living in our home, is becoming more self sufficient. Working the land and reading the benefits on doing so. Part of this is raising animals, we have just about every animal out. We look after them and they look after us. In saying this, we always have an excess of amazing fresh freer...

Homemade Egg Noodles

These noodles practically cost me nothing........ I always have an abundance of eggs, and flour is less then a dollar a kilogram. I dont care who you are, a family of 8 like us or you by yourself. These noodles are a great diller for home made soup, a fresh stir-fry or even deep fried to make crispy friend noodles. They also store fresh in your fridge for 3 days and are freezer friendly for 3 months. [Author: Raven N.]

POTD: Northern Lights Illuminating Finnish Soldiers

What dimensions should image files be within books?

I edited an epub in Sigil to replace the cover page and any pages with full-page image reproductions. I resized all the images in GIMP, but it seems there's always a little bit of the image splashing over to the top of the next screen. The bottom always gets cut off. I don't know if the device makes a difference, but I'm usually reading my books on an iPad.

Is there a way to reset book progress percentage?

Hi guys, I have a massive collection of books and, sometimes, I open one of them by mistake, which triggers it to be "in progress", showing the "1%" read. I was wondering if there is a way to reset this. I had a look on the book folder, trying to find something that could store this data, but didn't manage to find anything promissing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. It really annoys me all those books "started" staring at me all the time.

Calbre illegally being sold

There's a company called RepackagerExpress that is repackaging Calibre and selling it. It's also being sold in the Microsoft Store. These scammers are also selling a lot of other open source software they've "repackaged". https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/ep...calibre-e-book

How to keep track of books that I want to read someday, but haven't acquired yet

I often hear people talking about an interesting book, then I decide I'll read it some day, but not soon. To make sure I remember it, sometimes I immediately acquire it, put it in Calibre, and tag as "want to read". However it's not always practical, because for instance newer editions may come out in the future, or it's very expensive, or the series hasn't finished, etc. Of course I can keep a list of such books somewhere else, but it'd be nicer to manage everything is Calibre. Any suggestions...

I just installed KoReader and realize this is a noob question, but where can I see all of the highlighted sections I marked in an epub? I'd like to do this directly on my Kobo Clara HD, not on a connected labtop with KoHighlights. Many thanks!!

Will Warnock Gain Power To Inflict Injustice – Or Worse?

Georgia US Senate Race iStock-Ivan Burchak 1272194764.jpg Georgia – -(AmmoLand.com)- Raphael Warnock is clearly an enemy of law-abiding Americans who wish to exercise their Second Amendment rights. That much is clear. Just how bad he is, though, would shock many Second Amendment supporters. The Washington Free Beacon went into detail on his history of anti-Second Amendment extremism, and some of it defies common sense. Other parts of the agenda, though, are flat-out injustices, and a few even...

Problems downloading Sigil

I am a new user and attempted to download the Mac version of Sigil. The first time the file downloaded but my Mac would not install it. I assumed it was because I had just installed Big Sur and Sigil had not yet been not updated to integrate into Big Sur. I deleted the download and tried a few days later when a new version of Sigil was available. Now the downloads do not complete. The download starts but part way through the connection is lost. I tried downloading on my old Mac which runs Mohav...

Love of Gardening

I have dabbled in gardening for around 10 years with a tiny little patch on the side of my house. 2020 was the year that I finally stopped dreaming of a bigger garden and started digging. I started with a simple goal — I wanted to grow food to eat, but the garden ended up being so much more than that. More

Audible return policy under attack

I'd heard about some authors complaining about Audible's return policy. Now I've run into an item on thebookseller.com entitled: Authors Guild demands changes to Audible's returns policy and the link in that item to Sign Our Letter and Tell Audible to Stop Charging Authors for Returns. I do have one acquaintance who has been using this to listen to multiple audiobooks for no cost. As she said, "no one is being hurt."

'It was a little awkward' – how Rick Schatzberg shot his old friends topless

They grew up in a ‘nowhere’ suburb in the 70s, smoking skunk, going for rides and dating girls. The photographer reveals why he decided to capture the ravages of time on his old childhood gangRick Schatzberg had a dark epiphany a few years back, when two of his friends died in quick succession, one from a heart attack, the other from an overdose. “When two people you know and love die within six weeks of each other,” says the photographer quietly, “you realise that death is not just something th...

It's Buffalo Bill Cody on horseback....

  I'm reading about him this morning.  Here's something he said about his wife: "I often feel sorry for her. She is a strange woman but I don't mind her—remember she is my wife—and let it go at that. If she gets cranky, just laugh at it, she can't help it." He tried to divorce her after almost 40 years of marriage. He said that when he was away and she was at their ranch [in North Platte, Nebraska], she would "feed the men too much and talk violently about Cody and his alleged sweethearts ....

How to add to a TOC in MOBI/EPUB files?

I have some reference material on MOBI and EPUB but its such a pain to try to find a particular spot because the Table of Contents isn't broken down enough. How can I add more detail to the existing TOC or do I need to start a fresh one? On paper things are so easy to find because it usually tells you at the top/bottom of each page the page number and chapter so you always know where you are. As this doesn't exist on digital documents without breaking up the flow (though it could be displayed...
