Aces High!

While I was laid up in the hospital after my big motorcycle wreck back in the summer of 2000 a friend brought me a book to read. It was about fighter aces through history and sometime during the move from Georgia to Tennessee, it got submerged in with my other books in a storage box. When I started looking for it again after the move to Indianapolis, it had vanished. Over the past few months I've been desultorily packing up boxes full of books in the attic to take to Half Price Books or Goodwi...

Horror White, Edward Lucas: Nightmare Narratives (ghosts). v1. 01 Feb 2021

Stories of the occult to mystify and perplex you, tales to chill your spine and make your hackles rise. “Lukundoo” is particularly unnerving. =============== Edward Lucas White (May 11, 1866 – March 30, 1934) was an American author and poet. He published a number of historical novels, including The Unwilling Vestal (1918), Andivius Hedulio (1921) and Helen (1926), but he is best remembered for fantasy horror stories such as “The House of the Nightmare” and “Lukundoo” that were based on his own...

Beeswax Food Wraps

There are many DIY tutorials on line and even one here on CO+K. My preferred tutorial is from Mountain Rose Herbs. I used meltable bars that contain all the necessary ingredients, pre-combined in the right proportions. The two sellers I have used are: • Jenny Joy's Handmade Soap (who also include some wonderful and very effective hand salve to help keep the wax off your fingers) https://www.jennyjoyssoap.com/ • Kentucky Home--Our Essential Living https://ouressentialliving.com/product/diy-b...

getting started with my old PW1 (5.6.1.1)

Hi! I just joined up, because I switched my e-reading workflow with an iPad to start weaning myself of Amazon reliance more. Since I now have a PaperWhite 1 hanging around unused I thought I'd check into jailbreak options and trade-offs. Note that this device has never been jailbroken. My Kindle's vitals: S/N: B024 1501 2394 0QA8 Firmware: 5.6.1.1 (2689890035) I've been reading a number of related forum articles, and thought I'd take a stab at checking what I think I've learned to see if I'...

PocketBook Color mixed up .cbz pages

:help: Can anyone please explain to me why the default Pocketbook cbz reader app mixes up the pages on all of my cbz files? At first I thought it was just not assuming zeroes before numbers, for example if I name my pages 1, 2, 3, 4, etc... they would get jumbled and become 1, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 2, 20, 21, etc... This is all super frustrating, but manageable, I would just need to do the tedius thing and put zeroes in front of all the numbers and it should come out correctly...

Sigil 1.4.3 - Validation Not Catching Errors Now

I’ve been using Sigil for quite a long time – at least 10 years. I have over 450 books published on Amazon D2D etc., plus I help other authors with their publishing, so I have generated boatloads of EPUBs over this time period. So I’m in general comfortable with Sigil and its operations. I recently had to upgrade to a new computer which got me onto Sigil 1.4.3 on Windows 10. With this change, Sigil altered how it handled the validation process. Where before I could create perfect EPUB files for...

Whitespot (or Bleeding?) on a Pocketbook 632 Aqua

Hello, Does anyone has experienced the same case as me on Pocketbook 632? Mine is Pocketbook 632 Aqua. Suddenly something like a white spot or maybe like LCD bleeding appears on the corner and likely it getting larger. For as long as I remember, it never dropped or crashed. I always put it on a magnetic flip case cover, an official from Pocketbook. Any tips to remove it? Or I should replace the screen with the new one? Thanks, Sent from my M6T using Tapatalk

Likebook Mars, two simple tips

Probably everyone knows this. 1) With KOReader if the Volume Keys page navigation is enabled, the PC-86 multimedia keys work via Bluetooth. If they are printed on the BT Keyboard, they'll work just like on Windows or Linux. Don't install KOReader from the App Store, but from the KOReader website. 2) I find that when reading in bed, sitting up, that I accidentally tap power and it sleeps. So I selected 180 ° in the settings panel. Then the off, sleep and startup wallpapers/screens are upside down...
