Kindle again

I need a new Kindle. This might be the day, they are on sale on Amazon for $39.00. This hardy little tab has lasted many years but is starting to feel a little rough around the edges. It has been well used and abused.

Time to take Amazon up on a good deal.

First Book of 2016 - Blue Remembered Earth

I selected a science fiction title by Alastair Reynolds as my first read of 2016.

Blue Remembered Earth is Earth bound, a tiny vignette of science fiction by an author who paints on galactic scales. I picked up my copy as Christmas gift from my parents.

You can pick up a copy at your local book store, or

Since I got the Fire, 7" this year, I was sort of surprised by how much I liked having a physical book to hold. But if you like reading online or from your tablet or phone,'s - Read eBooks using the FREE Kindle Reading App on Most Devices offer is hard to resist.

Fire 7"

Oh, did the family score this Christmas. We each picked up a Fire, 7" Tablet.

These little devices work with almost any computer. I tried it on a Windows 7 and a Chromebook and both worked well. I was able to make some magic and install Google Play and Google Drive without too much trouble.

Here we have DoubleTwist from the Google Play Store displaying Matt and Kim from Amazon Music.

Between the native Amazon app and the Play Store, I have the best mix of software available on Tabbies today. Below you can see my new favorite NewsHog, available from the Amazon store. It beast the heck out of Google News.

In the coming days, I am sure I will be adding more great software. I can't wait to sink my teeth into this thing.
