Where did...

...that month go? Thank you for all your lovely comments and for chatting to each other too. If there’s one thing I love about this place it’s that...if I disappear off for a while you’ll all keep the conversation going. We are of good cheer here. Bookhound has made excellent progress with all the post-bereavement bureaucracy from afar, following his dad’s death, and one lovely thing is the arrival of a box full of old photos. Not only those he’d sent his parents of our family but plenty from...

ABBYY Finereader 15 Newbie question

Hi all, I'm taking a scan of an old out of print book in PDF format and converting it to EPUB for ease of device reading. There is only one thing I'm struggling with a bit, and that is how Finereader handles pictures and tables, when you go through the OCR editor to correct the text, you can pretty much do what you want with it to fix it but pictures tend to drop out of the bottom of the page and end up in the wrong place in the converted text. Obviously I can fix this post OCR in something li...

I am trying to send some books that have converted into Kindle format that I have downloaded from some free sites to my Kindle app running on my Andriod tablet.

Prior to having to reset, I was able to get the books to show when the SD card was mounted. Things I ha...

At poet Amanda Gorman’s Black Catholic LA parish, ‘it’s like everybody here is a freedom fighter’

By Alejandra Molina | Religion News Service LOS ANGELES — At St. Brigid Catholic Church, the Rev. Kenneth Keke preaches that the gospel of Jesus Christ is not only about eternity, but about “having a human face, loving one another.” Keke’s message stresses unity and that a “common humanity is what we need for us to live in peace.” “That is liberation theology and that is what we preach here,” said Keke, the St. Brigid priest from Nigeria. This is the South Los Angeles church where 22-year-old Am...

Colorado-based Burris Optics turns a whopping 50 years old this year, having been founded in 1971.

JMdict on Kobo (or any other recommended Japanese dictionaries?)

I've had a custom Japanese-English dictionary on my Kobo forever. It still works fine, but it was originally based a ~5 year old copy of Edict (from when the dictionary was made), so I wanted to update it to a newer version, and switch to JMdict. I converted the latest JMdict to Kobo format using Pyglossary. The resulting file worked to some extent on my Kobo, but there was something wrong with it -- I could look up some words, but it would fail to find anything for other words. The words it...

Kindle Oasis 3 vs Boox Poke 3 vs ?

Hello, I am looking into buying a new ereader. I currently have PocketBook Basic2, which is terrible (build quality, materials, software crashing). I have looked into 2 ereaders so far, and those are Kindle Oasis 3 and Boox Poke 3. I really like the form factor of Oasis. I like the two physical buttons to swipe pages, fast page swaps and the warm light. The disadvantages are that it is really expensive here (330 € for the 32 GB model), it is mostly out of stock and there is no epub support. Bo...
