    I want a book on Trump's presidency in 20 years' time, explaining what happened to make the American people so crazy, they elected him.....but I doubt I will live into my late 80's. I suppose I will die not knowing this.

    Or what happened to Jimmy Hoffa.

    Mysteries, both of them.
    We won't be here in 20 years. Sitting on the beach waiting for tsunami to hit is not a sustainable existence

    That's not going to happen. Trump should have thought about that BEFORE WOLFF was let in.

    You can share kindle books with other e-reader owners. I haven't done this yet, but I plan to learn to.

    I have never been able to remember names. I look at tags,ask people to write them down. I seem to retain them.

    But the words to music seem to last forever to me. On a road trip to Branson they put on Oldies I remembered every word. Impressed 2 ladies sitting across from me. My best friend is always calling me for the words to songs. Not the new ones,though. Maybe it is like the Downes Syndrome woman I know who can quote ball games,scores,team Players,etc.
    Nope, I don't remember musical lyrics either. The only good news is this is not a change. I can recall data if I study on it a certain way, but not just because I read it casually.

    I missed that. Fantastic. I hear he is a one of the 'good guys'. Stellar from everything I've come to understand.

    I have book cases full of books. Am now cleaning them out. I only read them once.
    Me, I prefer books,just have them reserve a new book. You get it in a couple of days.
    Bookbub is great, as is kindle unlimited, but both will only offer you a wide selection among popular genres. Not specific books on the best seller list.

    I have read every Agatha Christie, etc. for less, but I won't be offered the new Dan Brown book.

    Still, my library is great about offering me new, popular titles. My only complaint about kindle books is that there isn't enough older material. No copy of "The Guns of August", for example.

    But possibly that will change, in time.

    If you have the capacity, Amazon is offering "Fire and Fury" free, as an audible book.

    It's confusing.
    A lot of money and energy has gone into branding progressives as radical.

    I do not like online books.
    I don't think you can reserve a book in Cleveland before its acquisition. But maybe.

    I hate reading actual books anymore. Makes my delicate little wrist bones ache.

    Absolutely. As has been spent convincing working class Americans that the poor are their deadly enemies.

    Etc.
