I got a new Kindle!

After many, many years I now have a new Kindle. :D I was gifted a Paperwhite 10th generation for my 19th wedding anniversary. It took me a little time to find even how to change the font and brightness. :rofl: I am amazed how far the firmware has come since 2012. First Impressions: Lighting is seriously improved compared to my PW1, Contrast is much improved. Which is very important to me. I love the bezel design. The flush screen is wonderful. Ability for custom fonts and adding weight to text...

iOS eReader App Suggestions (ePub, mobi, PDF) TiReader, Yomu, KyBook, etc?

Hello, I am a recent convert to iOS and use my iPad Pro now for everything. One of the few things I’ve yet to settle into is an eReader app. I use a Calibre server hosted on our Linux home media box so I’d like the ability to be able to access that. I’d also like support of ePub, mobi, & PDF at a minimum (possibly the mobi related azw3), as well as ability to sync reading location across iOS devices. Need cloud integration (Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud, etc) and integration from free services ...

Amazon updates the $90 Kindle with a front light

Cost has always been a big part of the Kindle line’s appeal at the low end. Amazon’s very good at undercutting the competition, while still managing to provide a workhorse e-reader in the process. Of course, paying $90 for the device comes with a number of cut corners, not the least of which has been the device’s stubborn refusal to adopt the front-lighting found on the rest of the line. Amazon’s just amended that oversight with the latest version of the standard Kindle. The device now featu...

Why you should care about public computers disappearing from libraries

While I was growing up, a weekend wasn’t complete without a trip to the library. With my allowance jingling in my pocket, I could rent a VHS or CD for just a few coins. And, of course, books were free (provided you returned them on time, which I seldom did). But now, in a world with Netflix and Amazon Kindle, libraries have lost their shine. For me, it’s nostalgia, but for millions of low-income people, they serve as an essential connection to the digital world. Public libraries allow them to ac...

Bilingual w/Dictionaries

I made an amazing discovery, which everyone else probably knows, about using multiple dictionaries. For years, I've enjoyed reading novels from Britain and the U.S. so I have had two Oxford dictionaries and switch between them depending on the origin of the book. I do this mostly because of the slang terms being used. I want to read some books in Spanish and my Spanish is terrible. I couldn't get the Spanish/English dictionary on the collection with the English dictionaries. It's all by itself....

Longest Time to Wait for Trade In Decision?

My kindle was marked as delivered by UPS last February 22, 2019. It's been almost 3 weeks and there's still no decision. I'm not really complaining much as Amazon has given me a couple of bucks 'to apologize for the wait', but I'm still eager to get that 25% ASAP. They said it may take up to a month. What's the longest you had to wait for the trade in decision for Kindle eReaders?:(

Moon reader pro page options

Hello I have been using MRP for a very long time and started using the Amazon Kindle and was wondering is there an option to MRP to have the pages flip like a book and not scroll?

Content Item not Available

On my Oasis 1 I have a book that shows in the content 2 times but is not available if I try to open it. I am sure this has been asked here before but I cannot find a way to get it cleaned up other than a total reset of the device. Does anyone have a better fix?

Smith Battleplan Folding Knife ~ Review

Smith Battleplan Folding Knife ~ Review. If you're looking for an EDC in which the thumb studs and flipper work, check out the Smith's Battleplan knife. Idaho – -( I recently received a Smith’s Battleplan Knife to test. Right away I must point out two features that work, unlike a significant majority of other knives that I test.

Battery at rest....

Okay, I took my new PW4 and charged it to 100%. The green light came on at 97%. I unplugged the Kindle at 100%, turned on Airplane Mode, and closed the cover. I set the alarm for eight hours. When the alarm went off I checked. It was 99%. I turned off Airplane Mode and closed the cover. I set the alarm for eight hours. I wasn't home when the alarm went off and didn't check till two hours later. Ten hours without Airplane Mode and the battery read 99%. I use two Kindles and alternate them. If I ...

How terrible (or not) is the relatively recent quick-highlight feature?

Asking mainly out of concern for how the “quick highlight” feature tends to litter the MyClippings.txt file with accidental or erroneous highlights. I use MyClippings a lot and I even have a script for processing it according to my needs. I don’t have quick-highlight on my PW2 yet. It’s still on older firmware. On my device, you have to tap on “Highlight” in the popup menu before your selection is highlighted and copied to MyClippings.txt. This is how I prefer it. But I’d like to update my firm...

Does the Oasis track books read?

One of my favorite features about the Kobos is that is automatically tracks what books I've finished vs. what I am in the middle of reading vs. books unread - and I can filter by that status. I read a lot, so this is great to help me track what I've read and what I've started reading but got sidetracked from. However, I am considering buying an Oasis because my second Kobo reader just died (just like the first) within 18 months of buying it and Kobo customer service is complete crap, so I am l...

kindle paperwhite and calibre

For many years I used a Sony eReader with calibre. So when I bought a Kindle I continued using calibre to manage my ebook library. I just load books from calibre onto my kindle paperwhite when I want to read them. Because of this most of my books are not actually in the kindle cloud. If my kindle were to break or get lost, I would lose my place in all the books I have on there - and I suppose I would also lose things like my bookmarks. Given these circumstances, is there is a way for me to keep ...

Is it normal for the battery to drain while the device is not active?

I have put my Kindle to rest for over 24 hours and when I picked it up I found that the battery level had gone down 3%. Is it normal? I didn't use it at all and the WiFi was not on.

Troubleshooting Can someone try this test document?

this is a test azw3 I created that only has the phrase the quick brown fox... in four styles, regular, italic, bold, bold italic. It opens fine with calibre viewer, but voyage with 5.10.3 won't open it. I thought it was my custom fonts but removing the fonts folder and rebooting did not do it. Could someone (preferably on 5.10.3) try it out (file attached) and let me knows what happens? thanks Attached Files test - Unknown.azw3 (10...

PW4 problem waking up

I have now 3 or 4 times had my Paperwhite wake to a garbled screen: it is as if the screen was horizontally sliced and the slices were interlaced (like cutting a deck of cards in two and shuffling the two stacks together). So I see a sort of ‘double exposure’. The touch screen still responds, so if I tap I’m able to eventually navigate to Settings and then to Restart. (The other way is holding power button until Power dialog comes up with CANCEL RESTART SCREEN OFF options and tap in the right p...

Content Get full (or shorter) OED on Kindle?

The included Oxford Dictionary of English on the Kindle is fine. But I would love to get the full Oxford English Dictionary (you know, that 20+ volume monstrosity with the whole history of the English language) in epub/kindle format. Or failing that due to the obvious file size issues, at least the 2 volume Shorter Oxford English Dictionary, 6th ed., which I have in paper and supposedly has 1/3 of the entries in the full OED, as well as all words after 1700, and all words from Shakespeare or t...

Ereader Comparison Chart Help

Good Idea to Get Kindle Oasis 2?

I'm VERY eager to get a Kindle Oasis 2 but worried about the battery. Considering that it's been more than a year since it was released, should I hold on to my 25% trade-in discount until May 31, 2019 (the expiration of the discount) for a new Oasis with better battery or is the KO 2's battery not as bad as people say it is?

I do this not to set the bar for what you should earn or what you should spend in order to travel full-time in a financially sustainable way; rather – as the years go by and my own income and expenses vary – to demonstrate that there is no bar .
