July linkfest

I haven’t recommended a book in a while, so this month I’m recommending two, both of them new, both of them about language. (And each one blurbed by the author of the other one, which must be a coincidence, right?) Highly Irregular, by Arika Okrent, looks at many of the things that make English such a weird language, some of which may be so familiar you’ve never questioned them. Why isn’t of spelled with a v? How come we say how come? Why do we say big spender and large pizza, but not large ...

"at your library" in the north island eagle: a chance to win great prizes, just for reading

Forma Logged Out of Overdrive, Wouldn't Log Back On

Just passing this on for anyone else running into it. My wife went to search OverDrive on her new Forma for a book to read and it wouldn't give her the option. Checking Settings > OverDrive, we found that it had logged her out. When we tried to log her back in to OverDrive, it refused. It just kept cycling back to the OverDrive login screen. She could get to the library's Libby stuff just fine. But, the Forma just refused to let her sign in. Searching around here, it looked like the only ...

I stumbled across an interesting article this morning while looking for pictures of the tailgunner's station in a B-52...The first American to shoot down five enemy aircraft was Frederick Libby, an ex-cowboy from Colorado who joined the British Royal Flying Corps in 1916 and served as an observer-gunner in FE-2B two-seat pusher aircraft. FE gunners used two machine guns, including a rear-facing Lewis gun, mounted on a steel pole, which required them to stand up on their seats when firing. “Only ...

OverDrive on Kobo: Any Way to Filter Genres/Recents?

I must be missing something regarding using OverDrive on my Kobo Forma. I can get it to show my Holds, so borrowing an already found book is no problem. But, I can't seem to find any way to find OverDrive books of a particular genre that are new (perhaps a week) to the library. I guess I'm used to browsing my library's new books of the genres I'm interested in on Libby. On my Forma, if I go to Discover > OverDrive, I see "Your Holds," "Just Added eBooks" (which appears to be all ebooks added...

Slaxx – review

Director: Elza Kephart Release date: 2020 Contains spoilers I didn’t sit down to watch Slaxx with the view of viewing it as a vampire film, it just looked like a fun watch. It became clear, however, that it can be viewed as such on a couple of levels. This necessitates a broad view of what a vampire is, of course, but the tropes are there. When I mention a couple of levels, one is within the primary subject of the film – a pair of homicidal possessed jeans but the other true vampire of the film...

Finally, A Decent App For Borrowing Ebooks From The Library

A clunky, outmoded piece of software called OverDrive had been the standard app for getting reading material from the library onto your Kindle. Instead of merely upgrading, OverDrive (the company) created a new, far more user-friendly app called Libby which debuted but only started getting public attention over the past year. – Engadget

How to Overcome Reverse Mortgage Borrower ‘Pain Points’ in California

Reverse mortgage loans can be powerful tools for certain people in a particular financial situation, but many times borrowers have issues with getting to a loan’s closing based on a whole host of factors. These can include a predisposition to believing misinformation about the product category, issues related to their ability to qualify or even other financial or regulatory factors that could make getting to a loan’s closing a difficult task. To that end, RMD is seeking to shine a spotlight o...

E-commerce investor Upper90 raises $55M for equity investments

It might be strange to hear this from a firm that just raised a $55 million equity fund, but the team at Upper90 would like to remind you that equity isn’t the only funding that’s available. Upper90 is led by CEO Billy Libby (former head of quantitative education sales at Goldman Sachs) and Chairman Jason Finger (co-founder of Seamless), and it was the first investor in both Thrasio and Clearbanc. The firm offers debt and equity funding, and it just closed a $195 million fund in December — but t...

Overdrive books won't open on kobo

Hello, I am hoping someone can give me some insight into why Overdrive books are no longer opening on my Kobo Aura H2O edition 2.

Amazon Withholds Its Ebooks From Libraries Because It Prefers You Pay it Instead

Amazon is withholding ebook and audiobook versions of works it publishes through its in-house publishing arms from US libraries, according to a new report from The Washington Post. The Verge: In fact, Amazon is the only major publisher that's doing this, the report states. It's doing so because the company thinks the terms involved with selling digital versions of books to libraries, which in turn make them available to local residents for free through ebook lending platforms like Libby, are unf...

Clara HD Overdrive/Kobo feature updates?

I just noticed the other day that I could return books on my Kobo Clara HD from all the libraries connected to my Libby app (I’m running the most recent firmware). Until recently, only the main library linked to the Kobo store would allow me to return ebooks from my Kobo. I’d have to open the Libby app to return or renew books from the other libraries. It’s been this way for years, so I’m excited about the new development. For you people plugged into the details, when did this change occur, and...

Comment on simple, essential bolognese by Libby

In reply to Anja. I also experience this with my cast iron pan but not with a cheap enameled pot I was working with (I was making a double batch and couldn’t fit it all into one). The cast iron bolog tasted strongly of iron but the other batch in the enameled was delightful. Same ingredients, cooking time, everything. I’m going to steer clear of prolonged tomatoes recipes in my cast irons from now on.

Comment on rigatoni alla vodka by Libby

I just made the old recipe for the first time a couple of weeks ago and my main thoughts were: “that’s a lot of vodka,” “wow, Deb didn’t warn us about the giant column of flame” (my vodka flared!) and “huh I wonder why canned tomatoes instead of tomato paste.” So I feel quite validated by this update! (The original was still pretty good!)
