It's a big building called a Li-bra-ry. :shock:

What happens is people go into it and can borrow "books" for nothing.

These "books" are made of paper and Amazon can't steal them back from you if you've already borrowed them. :D

What will them little yellow buggers come up with next?

Probably a helluva lot more that those manic-depressive, suicidal, blond-haired, Volvo-driving Swedes! 8)

Don't be rascist! :P



You forgot boring, snobby and Saabs. Actually some Volvo's go like the clappers.
The Swedes are only suicidal because they can't think of anything interesting to do. :D
The little yellow buggers I was refering to were the :o smileys :wink:

And there's me thinking you were talking about my wife and children. :roll:


Easy to be missunderstood, mrs snowballs is half Jewish if I was racist i would get thrown out on my ear.

Last time for the books I have never and will never be a racist, well possibly towards the Swedes but they deserve it :wink:

You're an ignorant thug! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
(I am of course referring to the smileys.) :wink:

Ok to clear the air,
Poohcarrot got insulted by my comment earlier about little yellow buggers and then things almost went sour.

I did not to mean to insult his family, it was a quote from (if I have the right book and character) vimes comment about the monks of time.

I am sorry that I did it, it was not on purpose but I apologise and will bear that in mind.


He did come back and atempt to insult my family and get one over on me but personally im not bothered about as he got the nationality totally wrong.

I completely accept the apology. :D

In return I apologise for being a b*st*rd and trying to fight fire with fire. :oops:

I think I'll now have a rest from the forum for a week.

I use the Kindle app on my phone and love it. I still read paper books though but having the app is great to travel with or in bed if your partner wants the lights off but you can't sleep. Having the app also means less paper being used and more compact book storage so is also useful if you live in a small flat for example.

I really need help on archiving my Kindle collection. Have no idea how to go about it, and now have 4 pages of book titles on my Home page! :oops:

So, if I go onto Amazon now, and buy a Kindle, and have it sent to:

Pip
Pip Manor
No. 1 Pip Street
Pippsville
County Pip
Republic of Pip

you'd return it?

:wink:

(I just posted this in the Dolls House thread, but thought I'd post it here as well) :lol:

Terry Pratchett on Kindle.

Wee Free Men - page 232 HB wrote:Tiffany knew what the problem was immediately. She'd seen it before at birthday parties. (Bouncy) was suffering from tragic (book) deprivation. Yes she was surrounded by (books). But the moment she took any (book) at all, said her (kindle)-addled brain, that meant she was not taking all the rest. And there were so many (books) she'd never be able to (read) them all. It was too much to cope with. The only solution was to burst into tears.
