LATEST DISCOUNTED Kindle books (some temporarily) forum thread:
  Forum-thread starter RandomizeME includes a caution that it's not a book promotion thread for authors or for posts about indies or free books either.  "The thread is for discounts and price drops that many readers, especially Emily Bronte], find from publishers."
  Sept. 25-26

Joan Long says:
Now, for a limited time, you can get language teaching apps for Spanish, Italian, French and German. These active content apps are now at a special price of .99 each. Just search for 24/7 Tutor in the Kindle store. There are vocabulary and basic phrases in each language. Look at the screen shots for a better idea of what they do. I highly recommend them, especially at this special price.

How to Stay Christian in College (Think)
Author: J Budziswewski
Genre: Education - College

DESCRIPTION: Going away to college can be exciting, scary, wild, or all of the above. And don't think Christian colleges are always a failsafe alternative. As students trade home life for dorm life, they leave behind their church, their friends, their families--their major networks of support. What should they expect when they arrive on campus? How to Stay Christian in College is an interactive guide that lets students know what to expect and reassures them that they can attend school and still maintain their faith. Filled with anecdotes, resources, and much more, it prepares, equips, and encourages high school and college students to meet the challenge of living out their faith at school. It examines different worldviews and myths that students encounter at college, giving them the tools they need to meet the challenges ahead.

Age Smart: Discovering the Fountain of Youth at Midlife and Beyond
Author: Jeffrey Rosensweig
Genre: Health - Mind and Body

DESCRIPTION: It's not about staying young, but aging well. Rosensweig and Liu, a finance professor and a business journalist, respectively, offer a "holistic approach to aging smart," just as the Baby Boomer generation begins to reach retirement age. The authors artfully combine factual health and financial information with spiritual and inspirational suggestions (as seen in chapters like "Practice Optimism" and "Nurturing Your Soul") to comprise a comprehensive strategy for getting the most out of your senior years. Incorporated into the text are the perspectives of aging experts, including psychologists, anthropologists and medical scientists. More interesting are the inspirational stories from successful and famous people-including Jimmy Carter and longtime Cosmopolitan editor Helen Gurley Brown-who are still creative, energetic and productive at age 60, 70, even 80+. Readers will also benefit from the solid financial advice in the closing chapters, which include practical information on saving, investing taxes and more. Those in their middle and upper years will appreciate this upbeat guide to aging happily and healthily.

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.
