Does anyone have any suggestions on choosing an electronic reader. I have looked at adds for Amazon's Kindle, and also at the Nooks, but I'd like some feedback from those of you who have experience with any reader. Now that there is library access, I'm ready to purchase one. Thanx
I have a Kindle reader and am very pleased with it, but, it's best with books from Amazon. It's other e-book features are okay but if you want to check out books from the library you would probably be better served with a Nook or other reader which use the standard e-book formats. Regardless of what you get the print is very easy to read and turning pages is easier than turning a page in a real book. If you're checking out books with pictures in color then the Kindle is out since it's just b/w. The new nook has color I believe.

If I had it to do again I might actually have both a Kindle and a Nook. Well I may have just talked myself into purchasing a Color Nook. Good luck in your search. Oh, check out the Nook at B. Dalton and the Kindle can be checkout out at Staples and Target too I believe. Maybe some bookstores have started carrying them, can't say for sure.

Back to e readers. I would not buy a Kindle. Amazon's refusal to directly support the open Epub standard is not a policy I'm prepared to contribute to financially.

firefox crashed how do i fix it
Usually uninstall and install the newest version. I think it will ask you if you want to keep your bookmarks and settings for future installations. What OS are you running? make sure you use a compatible version for your OS.

I use kindle on my phone and tablets. I like being able to pick up where I left off on any of my devices or computers. I heard nook is being bought out because of their sales numbers dropping so low. Not sure
christianvolume: I guess I'm a bit more open to kindle etc since my eyesight isn't quite as good as it was, as regards typefaces. I like to use a Bible with a good sized print.



I have a Kindle Fire HD and I am happy with it. Apps and books look awsome in glorious HD. With that being said, I like physical books more but when on holiday, I always take my Kindle.

My WiFi frequently drops and it's so annoying. I am on a laptop. I know almost all my neighbors have WiFi- could their signals be affecting mine? Thank you!
I would think that very unlikely because :
a) your wifi signal strength would be much greater than their's unless they are using a range booster in close proximity to you.
b) once you are logged on your communications are encrypted and so apart from the obvious security benefits, your system is keyed together and will in general not notice other encrypted signal on the same frequency.
I use this frequently to transmit /receive messages around the world using less than 5 Watts of rf power. there can be upwards of 5 other stations all using the same frequency, but we don't ever interfere with each other.

So why are you experiencing drop outs?
You could try reloading your driver software for your wireless card.. or look for an updated one.
You could try a system reset on your ADSL assuming you are using one.
Here is a rare and almost unbelievable one........pay attention to the programs you are using when you experience drop outs.
There is a program called JT65-hf which I was using until (after a lot of head scratching) I found that it was causing my adsl to freeze for up to 10 seconds on a two minute cycle. I only noticed this because I use my wireless network to remotely control my transceiver. I'm not suggesting that you would have the same program, but if that one can interfere there may be other programs that can as well.
Point is there are some mighty hard to find things that can be occurring, so you need to just eliminate things one by one, and keep an open mind.
Hope this has given you enough to help.

I think it's possible. Your router/access point should offer a choice of channels. You could try changing that to see if it makes any difference.

There are tools that can show you the channels and signal strengths in range. I use wifi analyzer on my Androids. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.farproc.wifi.analyzer&hl=en_GB
