Custom Creations

I've done this one before, but it was fourteen years ago and the photo was potato-quality. Basically, twenty years ago, before I'd even really gotten into collecting Smith & Wessons (the only Smif wheelyboi I owned at the time was a 625), my friend Marko and I were hanging out at Montague Gunsmithing in Knoxville, poring over the shop's copy of The Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson. We were particularly entranced with the description of the Performance Center's rendition of the Model 13, whic...

Initials in Sigil

Hi people, Thank you very much for accepting me. I am quite a newbie in creating ePubs in Sigil. A new big issue came from out of nowhere by controlling the output... I use big initials not only at the beginning of a chapter, but also in the middle of a chapter. Like a sub-chapter or so. I would like to treat them like a picture, so I close them by tags and and I am trying my best with the CSS styles. Everything works good till a page-break comes. The surrounding text is behaving in an u...

Libra [USA] My new Kobo Libra H2Os from Walmart - questions

Good day everyone, I apologize for being uninformed--I'm very new to the Kobo ecosystem. My prior e-readers were Nook Glowlights and a Sony reader. I've ordered and received 2 Kobo Libra H2Os in white color--one for myself and one a gift for a family member. Setting both up today. I have read about lack of screen uniformity from device to device and expected to see some difference in backlight. There's indeed a difference between the two, but it's difficult to qualify, because there's a ...

Article on Readers Versus "Book People"

Thoughts on these two opposing articles? I saw Book Riot's objection response first to alert me to the original article. Back-Talking The Tone Police: Book People Are Not Your Enemy . The writer objects to what she/he sees as a condescending tone toward "book people". I went to read the original article, We Have to Save Books from the Book People, and the main theme of it is initially defending the integrity of the all-mighty classic from those readers who embrace social media to the point ...

Help! Can't open Kindle Reader for PC

My Kindle reading app for PC on my desktop suddenly won't open for some reason. I click on the Kindle link in my start menu and it starts initializing with a spinning donut for a few seconds, then stops.

[FOUND] Cheap stylus replacement for Boox Note Pro

Hi, The inevitable happened and I lost my stylus for Boox Note Pro. A quick look around the Internet revealed that these things are not cheap! :eek: I wasn't ready to spend up to £50 for a replacement (even though the top of the range pens look nice, but would it work with my reader?) so I took a chance, went on ebay and bought something advertised as Digitizer Stylus Pen For Fujitsu T730 T732 T900 T901 T726 T5010 Lifebook.

Best-selling author Kristin Hannah reveals the unusual journey of ‘The Four Winds’

Kristin Hannah had spent a year researching and writing an early draft of her new novel when she realized she’d gone astray. “The Four Winds” is set in the Texas panhandle as the Depression and the Dust Bowl environmental disaster. In the margins of Hannah’s story as she initially conceived it, there was the character Elsa, a young woman who’d grown up feeling unloved and unworthy, who found meaning as the mother of two young children. “I wrote it for at least a year, and Elsa was kind of a peri...

How our early plant experiences inspire our gardens and those of future generations

“I believe all gardeners carry with them an original flora, if even only in memory. An original flora is comprised of the plants that formed our seminal experiences with gardens and landscapes. This horticultural form of nostalgia could come from anywhere . . . For some gardeners, it’s the memory of a plant from childhood. For others, it’s the pass-alongs shared between generations and revered as heirlooms, never left behind in a move or lost in the family, perhaps even bearing a special name to...
