Anybody out there like the paranormal genre? I especially like Catherine Coulter's series. But I've just discovered Terri Reid's Loose Ends. I think it was 99 cents. I know I'll read Book 2!

That's a subgenre of fantasy, and I love fantasy. I just finished Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson series. You should check that out. I am currently reading an offshoot of that called Alpha and Omega. I'll check out the ones you mentioned. I've noticed we have a lot of the same tastes in reading.

Thanks,

Me too, Luanne. Love the 2 day free shipping.

I also really like the Prime video streaming. I got rid of cable a while back, and pretty much all I watch on TV anymore is the Amazon stuff I can stream for free (now that I have Prime).

As a subscriber to Entertainment weekly, I was able to download the free app on my Fire, to read the magazine online..I am blown away by how great a magazine looks on it...I might have to resubscribe to Vanity Fair again.....

All right, so how do you turn the page so you can see what you have on your kindle? I have three pages of books downloaded but can't figure how to get off the first page. Everything I do is wrong.

Moraine,from your home page, you should be able to hit the next page button... if this is not getting you, to the "next" page, contact help at Amazon.com.

I called them today, because, my Fire is not holding a charge, so they are sending me a new one,overnight, and I will send back the old one....you can chat with them online, in real time, which is how I choose to contact them..much easier...good luck

Anybody out there read the new Sarah Paretsky book "Breakdown?" I really enjoyed it. It's not part of the alphabet series.

Moraine, I read all six of the Terri Reid books. Shakespeare she's not, but fun anyway.

I hope you have better luck with the new one one.

I'll deal with mine when I'm not exhausted...but it won't let me turn a page. Maybe I'll make a couple of collections and see if I can move between them.

Judy, have you read the Mercy Thompson books by Patricia Briggs? If not, you might consider them. They are really good.

Trip, I doubt if they are your cup of tea. Sorry.

Anyone read the Southern Sister murder mystery series by Anne George?

Trip, I had heard she had passed, so there are only so many. They are on my list. Glad to know they are good. I got my kindle working, so I started the one you were telling me about, Judy.

Reboot. I guess turning it off sometimes is a good thing.
