Free Kindle book, 5/27/11

Kali: The Food Goddess, A Compilation of Delightful Recipes and Memories of Food , by Kali Amanda Browne, 1 customer review, 5 stars (not a verified purchase). $0.00 today.

The one review is written by the owner of the website for which the author posts essays and food recipes.  The website owner writes: "Wonderful multicultural offerings (should I say "fusion"?) that blend all that's best about Caribbean/American/Spanish/Chinese/Middle Eastern cuisines. She's a global culinary force to be reckoned with, one of those rare cooks who combine art and practicality in their creations.  Do yourself a favor and give this cookbook a try, if only for the wonderful story about the Chinese influence in Puerto Rico and the recipe for stuffed peppers.  Trust me.  You won't be disappointed!"

Product description: "An edited compilation of recipes and essays originally published between 2006 - 2010. Includes 24 indexed recipes and cuisines include Puerto Rican, Spanish and Chinese, along with adaptations of some classics."

(Two other books by an author released for $0 today were reviewed as filled with writing errors to an unusual degree, so I'm not including those.)

  1. Off the subject, am I the only one for which the right-side buttons on a black DXG seem like a black cat in a coal mine?

    I can neither see nor feel the buttons or their labels and have a trial and error operation virtually every time I want to advance a page as my right hand is alternately needed to handle food on every page.

    Thanks, Don Lloyd

  2. Don,
    I have no way of knowing, but I can say that I've no problem with the buttons on the right.
    But I know what you mean about black on black.

    The crack I can see is good enough for me. I've never thought about it. It seems to be just where it ought to be.

    Are you saying you are always eating while reading? I have a little stand (there are many at Amazon), and I just stand it up in one of those -- I have a picture of it on my Kindle galleries. Maybe it's easier to see the button that way.

  3. I almost always eat when reading fiction, but usually not for non-fiction. A stand won't do any good as I read/eat in a recliner, using my abdomen as a table for a paper plate and balancing the DXG near my belt with my left hand. I must average 2 button press attempts before I find a give or a click.

    Thanks, Don Lloyd

  4. Don,
    Maybe remembering you have to press on the INSIDE of the lever -- the part closer to the screen -- will make it easier. It won't work if you just press it, as you need to press the inner portion. They did that for the DX and Kindle 2, so that it wouldn't turn a page if you just picked the unit up.

    They changed that to outside again for the K3 though.


NOTE: TO AVOID SPAM being posted instantly, this blog uses the "DELAY" feature.

Am often away much of the day, and postings won't show up right away. Posts done to use referrer-links may never show up.

Usually, am online enough to release comments within a day though, so the hard-to-read match-text tests for commenting won't be needed this way.

Feedback and questions are welcome. Thanks for participating.

Technical Problems?
If you're having problems leaving a Comment, Google's blogger-help asks that you clear the '' cookies on your browser's Tools or Options menu bar and that will fix the Comment-box problems (until they have a permanent fix).

IF that doesn't work either, then UNcheck the "keep me signed in" box -- Google-help says that should allow your comment to post (it's a workaround to a current bug).
Apologies for the problems.

TIP: There's a size limit. If longer than 3500 characters or so, in a text editor, make two posts out of it.
