Lush Keep It Fluffy is Back and I’m Heart Broken

Lush Keep It Fluffy Perfume has returned! My god how I’ve waited for this day. Keep It Fluffy was one of the original Be Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful fragrances and it’s gorgeous! Over the years Lush UK has slowly brought back a lot of the scents from the B Never days and I’ve always waited and waited for the return of Keep It Fluffy but the day never came. To this day I remember the gorgeous vanilla and rose scent. It’s so unique and so gorgeous. And Lush UK has finally brought it back! ...

TPM’s Duke Of Dukes: The Quarterfinals

The last round of matches was a bloodbath. Perhaps, most notably, the expected champ of the “Sorry For (Tea) Partying” region, Rob Ford, was absolutely demolished by an underdog, Dinesh D’Souza. Our tight Tristate Area match-up between Anthony Weiner and Chris Christie saw Weiner squeak through. And another tight match between the armed Dick Cheney and Jack Abramoff saw Abramoff, a legend, gunned down by the former VP. Now we land in interesting territory — the quarterfinals, which will determin...

TPM’s Duke Of Dukes: Jeet Heer Weighs In

The expert weighs in. While we’ve asked you, the readers, to help us decide who the worst of the worst are in this year’s TPM Duke of Dukes contest, we figured you could use a bit of persuasion one way or the other — a reminder as to why these scandal-plagued political figures’ buffoonery is worth celebrating. The Nation’s Jeet Heer is up first as a guest commentator this year, offering some coaxing on why you should vote one way or the other. Head over here to vote.  —Nicole Lafond Duke Cunnin...

Its Time To Cast Your Vote For The Duke Of Dukes

Alas, Michele Bachmann’s unhinged diatribes about  terrorist Muslims infiltrating the U.S. government could not top Dinesh D’Souza’s batshit. Mark Sanford’s romantic adventures were deemed by readers to be no match for Dick Cheney shooting his buddy in the face — and then forcing said buddy to apologize for Cheney having shot him in the face. And so, the people have spoken: Dinesh and Dick advance to the Round of 16. The play-ins are over and we now have our tournament is set. The day has ar...

Comment on pumpkin bread by T. London

The basic recipe is good, but, like many pumpkin recipes, we thought it needed less sugar and and way more spices (our spices are not that old either.) To be fair, the extra spices may also have been required (in part) because we used Whole Foods Organic pumpkin puree which was close to flavorless. We should have read the online recommendations from multiple sources to use Libby’s. Still, I think more spices are required than listed in the recipe. We took out 1/3 of the sugar and basically t...

COVID stalks Montana town already saddled with asbestos disease

Like thousands of people from Libby and Lincoln County in the far northwestern corner of Montana, the 61-year-old Fahland has scarred lungs after years of breathing in asbestos fibers from dust and soil contaminated by the town's now-defunct plant that produced vermiculite, a mineral used in insulation and gardening.

RIP, RB Digital

It was with some trepidation that I saw that the RB Digital library app was going to be folded into Libby/OverDrive. It didn’t offer me nearly as much as OD or Hoopla, but it still had books of high interest, with the added advantage that any of the ones I wanted was available on demand, with a three-week borrow and renewable. (Some books are long. ;) ) I was not happy but not surprised when one book I wanted had a waiting list at OD once it moved over, but I can live with waiting lists. To...

Problem with Overdrive on my Kobo

I am a longtime Kindle user but recently bought a Kobo Libra H20 to use Overdrive to lend books from my Library directly on the Kobo. However, everytime I try to connect to my library from my Kobo it says "Oops! Something went wrong" My library has Overdrive and it is working if I use the Libby app or a webbrowser on my laptop. Im logged in, but I cant see any books. I thought that it might be a problem with the firmware on my Kobo that had to be updated, but now I have updated to several ne...

Vision impairment: need e-ink reader for Libby, PDFs, Pocket, & Kurzweil/ClaroRead?

Hi! I’m new here and also brand new to ereaders. I was recently diagnosed with a new vision impairment (accommodative insufficiency), and my doctors recommended using an e-ink device for reading.

Overdrive sign-in issue

Hi, I recently noticed that I had been automatically signed out off of my OverDrive account on my Clara HD. When I tried logging back in using either the library card or OverDrive account, I keep getting kicked back to the OverDrive sign-in page. I checked using the Libby app on my phone, but my library card is still valid and I can borrow and return books. When I looked into the Kobo eReader.conf file, I noticed that under the OverDrive section, there is a key called overdrive_account with ...

Comment on crispy peach cobbler by Libby

Hi Deb! This is my favorite cobbler recipe. Today I picked a boatload of peaches, and I’m planning to freeze some. How do you think this would work with frozen peaches? Would you thaw them first? Just wondering your thoughts before I portion them out for the recipe in particular. Thank you!!

Can calibre rebuild an 'Online Only' epub from Libby (files in the Responses folder)

Hi all, There's a book on overdrive that is read-online only. I actually own the hard copy and want to read it on my kobo. However, you can't download the epub to digital editions, only read it online, or 'save to read offline'. When you save to read offline, it creates a folder on your phone called Files>Documents>Responses, and what I assume is the epub broken into parts. See the attached picture. Is there a way for Calibre to rebuild the epub, or to download it in any other way? Any help woul...

Fire HD8 Plus first look

This is something like the 7th Fire tablet I’ve bought (I returned one for a refund), Price was about $70 after trade-in discount, which is less than I’ve paid for any previous one, and the specs are better than any previous one. So, ‘a good value’ on that score. My previous Fire was HD8 (2017 7th gen). Its battery capacity was degraded, and drained quickly in sleep mode. I think this was the result of having it in the Dock accessory almost continuously for a couple of years. In any case, it was...
