Amazon ebook Readers - Premium Cases (Noreve, Oberon, Amazon, Hand and Hide Leather)

I've ordered 4 cases from Noreve over the years. My latest purchase was for my new Oasis 3. These are elegant leather cases. I enjoy dealing with this company and truly love their products. They're located in France, and they ship worldwide for free. I once had an Oberon leather case, one I purchased for my Kindle 2. I found it rather too bulky, but it was a beautiful case. They have quite a large variety of designs to choose from. I also purchased Amazon's lower-priced leather case for my...

spacing between paragraphs added after book conversion

I have a book I bought on Amazon, imported into Calibre, and then converted to epub to read on my Kobo reader. In the conversion dialogue, the "remove spacing between paragraphs" is checked. Not even necessary in this case, since the book didn't originally contain any. Yet the resulting epub does have spacing between paragraphs. On my Kobo reader and in Calibre's reader it looks like in the first picture. However, if I look at the epub, the text is displayed fine, withouth space between the p...

Troubleshooting Kindle App does not work on Catalina (iOS)

I just got a new Mac using the new Catalina Operating System and my Kindle no longer works on it, even though I downloaded it again from both Amazon and the Mac App Store - my books don't open. The Kindle App opens just fine on my Mac, does not freeze, it installs and runs, etc.. The problem is that none of my eBooks show up on it properly.. i.e. I see all my books but none of them open... So at the moment I can only read them on my iPhone or the Kindle Cloud solution, but not on my Mac... whi...

Content Are the active contents from Kindle Store gone?

Hi! I noticed that Amazon has recently deleted all its "active contents" from Kindle Store. My Keyboard says: (whatever active content I choose) "Not currently available". The website doesn't find anything if I search for them. Are they gone for ever? Why didn't they make them freely available?

Email address for Kindle

Every time I share a book from Calibre to my Kindle I get a message from Amazon if I want to actually accept it into my account. If I knew what the email address that Calibre uses I can add this to my account in Amazon so it will automatically accept it. SO does anyone know the email address used, please?

"Let's Never Talk About This Again" is a touching memoir about birth, death, and dad's amateur erotica career

In 2012, I was given the privilege of performing my high school ska-punk hit song "Adam Wants A Blowjob" during a performance of Mortified in Brookline, Massachusetts. Mortified is a gloriously hilarious and cathartic evening of performance, wherein people perform excerpts from their actual, real-life high school and college journaling and other writing. It's embarrassing; it's touching; and it's utterly delightful. In the years since then, I've had the privilege of performing my absolute worst ...

Elites Starting to Fear the Liberal Monster of Their Own Making ~ VIDEO

Yeah, burn down Western civilization: That's the ticket! To do that, they first must abolish the past. As for the future, lime pits seem a more likely destination than flower-filled meadows, but when dealing with the weak-minded it pays to use what works. (Abolish the Present/Twitter photo) U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “Fringe activists set up a guillotine in front of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’s home in Washington, D.C., on Sunday where they reportedly demanded that Amazon be abolished,” The Daily W...

The Clarys Review the Compact CRKT CEO Folding Knife

The Clarys enjoyed the CRKT CEO so much they bought a second one. IMG CRKT U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- To state that the CEO folder is near and dear to us is somewhat of an understatement. That is because the designer, Richard Rogers is a fellow New Mexican. In fact, Richard lives just down the road from us (well, about 50 or 60 miles), in Magdalena, New Mexico. Richard has been designing knives since 1997, when he has a few spare moments. You see, he is a rancher, and that is a full-time job in a...

Files converted to MOBI not readable on Paperwhite

I'm using Calibre 4.19, and my Kindle Paperwhite is firmware version 5.12.4 Recently, whenever I use Calibre to convert an epub to a MOBI file, that file won't work on my Kindle.

The future of collaborative digital content consumption

Amazon's recent Watch Party announcement sheds light on what the future holds for digital content consumption. It's primitive, yes, but a step in the right direction. To summarize, Watch Party lets two people watch a movie together even though they're not in the same location. The first version limits interactions to texts and emojis but you can bet a future version will support video on both ends so you can make faces and feel closer together. With Alexa (and Prime) Amazon has built an incredib...

‘Decoding Firearms’ Educates on REAL ‘Gun Safety’

‘Decoding Firearms' Educates on REAL ‘Gun Safety’ U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “Gun and ammunition sales soar as defund-the-police movement grows,” CNN Business reported Wednesday. “More than 6.5 million gun-sale background checks were conducted from January 1 through April 30, according to the latest NSSF research, which showed a 48% year-over-year rise from the same period in 2019,” the report elaborates. “Firearms retailers … estimated that 40% of their sales came from first-time gun buyers.”...

Don't know if I should get an Oasis or not

I have previously been happy with my Paperwhites and had no desire to update due to cost and portability. Frankly I've been in the mood for a new e-reader and I don't see Amazon releasing any new ones (besides perhaps Fires or basic Kindles) for awhile. By their history I don't see them releasing a new paperwhite this year, and likely not a new Oasis yet since the Oasis 3 was released last year. My Paperwhite 4 has become increasingly buggy, and it's my main reading device. I keep getting sof...

Hacks Kindle with PocketBook Firmware?

Hey guys, Proud owner of two Kindle devices so far (first the Basic 2016, then upgraded to Paperwhite 2015). The one and only thing I don't like about them is the continuing effort of Amazon to behave like Apple, in means that it closes more and more its ecosystem and keeps adding small inconveniences for side-loaders. Let's take for example the last issue of disappearing covers if a book does not match with a purchase from the store. And I perfectly know that Calibre has now fixed that. But...
