Newer tutorial and other apps + unusual e-books

  Apologies to those outside the U.S. who can't access these yet.

  Italian, French, Spanish

Brain Bump is the middle game seen at the left - a "Literature Trivia Game" 'for book lovers.'

I'll also note Jumble 200 because though I mentioned this earlier in a Kindle-games article, this one has 200 puzzles rather than 10 or 50, and I was struck that, with 13 customers reviewing it, Jumble 200 has 4-1/2 stars out of 5.

  On that page you should see, in case you'd missed them earlier, a few free popular Kindle games just before the reviews.

WHILE browsing these, I ran across an interesting edition of a the ESV Study Bible, which has 287 customer reviews and an average customer rating of 4-1/2 stars out of 5.

  "[It] combines the best and most recent evangelical Christian scholarship with the highly regarded ESV Bible text.  The result is the most comprehensive study Bible ever published--with 2,752 pages of extensive, accessible Bible resources."
  As one with an interest in historical sites, I noticed the unusually detailed illustrations such as the one on the right.  Here's the enlargement with readable text.

App Savvy.  This one caught my eye because it is a marketing-programming guide to creating apps and has 5 full stars, with 13 reviews.  The one review not rated with 5 stars has 3 stars and says, "Interesting book that is written for the non-programmer and the programmer, who has the technical abilities but lacks the marketing skill to peddle his wares..." and headlines his review with "A good book for a new Mobile Noob."

NOTE: TO AVOID SPAM being posted instantly, this blog uses the blogger.com "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 'blogger.com' 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.
