'I Do Not Like Working Too Hard or Too Long': A Refreshingly Honest Talk With The Witcher's Creator

The Witcher continues its trek across the countryside. The popularity of the Henry Cavill-led show has led to a spinoff anime called Nightmare of the Wolf, a soundtrack featuring Jaskier’s tunes, and even a 500,000-book reprint of the original series. We reached out to Andrzej Sapkowski, creator of The Witcher, to get…Read more...

Get the Note 2?

Hello everyone. I am about to order my second e-reader. I come from a Kobo Glo HD that i got a few years ago just for reading, however my needs have changed since. I am an engineering student and I do a lot of my reading on PDFs. However the Glo was too small for that. I mainly care about my eyes thats why I want an e-ink screen and not something like an ipad. I though about getting a Max 3 however it is far too expensive for me, and i can hardly afford the Note 2. Shall i proceed with it? I...

On the Smugglers’ Radar

“On The Smugglers’ Radar” is a feature for books that have caught our eye: books we have heard of via other bloggers, directly from publishers, and/or from our regular incursions into the Amazon jungle. Thus, the Smugglers’ Radar was born. Because we want far more books than we can possibly buy or review (what else is new?), we thought we would make the Smugglers’ Radar into a weekly feature – so YOU can tell us which books you have on your radar as well! On Ana’s Radar: First up this we...

4 Lessons Children Can Learn About God from the Creation Story

For the past five years I have invited my friend Matthew Paul Turner to the farm’s front porch. Today, he’s sharing how we can teach our children about God through the creation story in honor of his gorgeous new book When God Made the World. Shiloh and I have enjoyed it multiple times since reading it. I’m captivated by the many layers Matthew brings to a story we all know well. It will bless your story times tremendously. Today is the last day to preorder When God Made the World and then get a...

Troubleshooting Paperwhite 4 battery

Sorry if this has already been answered elsewhere. I have a PW 4 that almost a year old, and am slightly concerned about the battery. I've noticed that when the power light goes green, it's still on 96-97% or so and takes forever to get to 100%. I charged it to 100% last night, unplugged it and didn't use it for a couple of hours, and when I turned it on it had already dropped 2%. After 1-2 hours reading since last night it's down to 94%. I'm probably worrying about nothing but it this normal be...

Clara HD Protective skin

For the KIndle Oasis 3 there're full-body skins like this one from Skinomi I was wondering if there was something similar for the Clara HD? I'm hoping there might be as the covers add a bit of weight and for me with my hands can be rather unwieldy.

Texture and Light: A Designer/Photographer’s Own Family House in the Netherlands, Revamped

I read once a clever design tip: If you can’t figure out what to do with a room, photograph it. Something about stepping back and capturing the space as an image helps unlock even the trickiest of design conundrums. (I’ve tried it; it helps.) Maybe it’s this dual visual sense that makes Holly Marder’s spaces so good. An interior designer and partner, with Hedda Pier, behind Avenue Design Studio in the Netherlands, Holly is also a photographer, and her eye for composition and interest is perhaps ...

There is no doubt about the power of design. It can build an emotional relationship, develop a group or communicate information at a glance. Although there are many design elements that produce amazing designs (or sub-par...), one of them is very important: fonts Scary text. The right typography can build or break a design from colour to style to spacing. And when your book covers are a book covers based on words that retain readers, you increase the significance of the font for the covers of ...

What Pokémon can teach us about storytelling

Since 1996, the Pokémon games have exerted a fascination for fans, telling imaginative stories and encouraging a generation of players to question everything they see“This is it? This is the game?”I am in Italy with my partner, and just like every beach holiday since 1999, I have booted up Pokémon. This particular version is Pokémon Sun for the Nintendo 3DS, but all the games are fundamentally the same: you’re a child leaving home to catch and train tiny monsters so you can defeat various bosses...

Reports > Image Files > Times Used Shows 0

I'm using the latest version (1.0.0). While viewing an epub in Sigil I went to the Tools menu and selected Reports. When I go to Image Files it lists the images. However, the count in the Times Used column shows 0 even though there are images in the epub. See attached screenshot. Is this a bug? If so, is this the proper place to report it? Thank you.
