""Who amongst us never did anything stupid at 22?" Heck, I am now 65 and apt to do a lot of stupid things. Luckily for me, I am self-employed and won't lose me job when I do. "

"Thomas Hardy's book is "Far from the Madding Crowd" Yes, technically it may be a mistranslation (on Hardy's part) but in general use the title remains as Hardy used it. "

"So now the fact that a book is going to be made into a movie makes it a "must-read?" Of all the reasons I might read a book, that one isn't even on my list. "

"I've already read four out of the eight. Two others were on the maybe list. None of the eight look like movies I'd ever want to watch. I know I'm out of step, but I never feel compelled to see movies based on books I've read. "

"What do you do with your Nexus 7 2012? I can't even start it like normal. It freezes in a few seconds after restart. I did the inactivate animations and stuff and nothing happens, it's still unusable. I don't know what else to do! "

"Just today I got an email from Steimatzky in Israel saying that they do not sell Hebrew books in electronic format. I own a Kobo ereader and download ebooks in Hungarian, Romanian, English and Spanish. I want very much to add Hebrew books to the list. Like to read Scandinavian police thrillers and good USA novels. I prefer the ereaders because of the variable font size and built in dictionaries. Thanks, Gavriel "

"Yes, the mainstream media articles do ignore piracy when they talk about streaming media options. But in all fairness, most articles are written toward informing the consumer as to where they can find streaming content and how much it will cost them. It would be inappropriate for such articles to direct consumers toward illegal content. At the same time, anyone who has researched cord cutting to even a moderate degree has come across Kodi (a perfectly ..."

"I'm a computer programmer: if I wanted to pirate I probably could. Years ago I once had a lot of Microsoft Reader ebooks from which I removed DRM - and have never touched again since. They're probably on a backup drive somewhere in my closet. I've visited sites with unauthorized copies, looked around, decided I don't want anything . I've never used bit torrent software, but I could if the ..."

"Did Amazon really bug you about moving? It's none of their business where you shop—or at least is should be none of their business. That's yet another illustration of Amazon control-freakery in action. If the company had a slogan, it'd be "You do it our way." That's particularly true for authors. Apple's iBooks makes a country move quite easy On the iBooks Store page, simply click on the flag-circle in the lower right. A ..."

"Wow. It's unfortunate that things like this happen to self-published authors. Luckily, Mills was smart enough to look into the fishy situation and hopefully others learn from her experience. "

"So we the people have voted with our feet and have successfully coerced yet another source of information to rely on revenue from other sources. But have we really won anything of value? My concern is that news and information is being skewed by the need to find someone else to foot the bills, pay the piper etc. What we've seen so far may be just the beginning of a process we will come to ..."
