Czytnik Kobo Aura One Manga Edition dostępny w Stanach i Japonii

 Minęło półtora roku od premiery najdroższego i największego czytnika Kobo – Kobo Aura One. W Stanach Zjednoczonych Ameryki oraz w Japonii zadebiutowała jego nowa wersja przeznaczona do komiksów.

Ale zacznijmy od Amazonu. Niezbyt często chwalę tę firmę za odważne pomysły. Odnoszę wrażenie, że lider rynku wykazuje ostatnimi czasy mniej niż umiarkowany entuzjazm do eksperymentowania z nowymi rozwiązaniami w czytnikach. Gdy już się na to zdobywa, wychodzi różnie - raz gorzej (Kindle Oasis), raz lepiej (Kindle Oasis 2). To całkiem zrozumiałe, choć po firmie z takim potencjałem finansowym spodziewać się można więcej. Ale pomysł, aby specjalnie na rynek japoński opracować czytnik w wersji „manga”, najwyraźniej spodobał się. Wprowadzony pod koniec roku 2016 w Japonii Kindle Paperwhite 3 Manga Edition (wpis: „Kindle Paperwhite 3 z 32 GB pamięci – w Japonii”) doczekał się konkurencji w postaci nowej wersji czytnika Kobo.

Rakuten Kobo wprowadził w Stanach i Japonii nową wersję swojego największego i najdroższego modelu - Kobo Aura One Manga Edition. Ogłoszony został wtedy, co Kindle Oasis 2, a trafił do sprzedaży na początku grudnia zeszłego roku. Podobnie jak wspomniany Paperwhite, nie różni się niczym szczególnym od pierwowzoru. Jedyna różnica, jaką udało mi się dostrzec w specyfikacji nowego Kobo, to zwiększona do 32 GB pamięć wewnętrzna (do dyspozycji użytkownik ma w Kobo ok. 28,6 GB). Zupełnie podobnie jak w mangowym Kindelku. W oficjalnym ogłoszeniu („Announcing Kobo Aura ONE Limited Edition with Expanded Storage”) nowy czytnik określono jako Kobo Aura ONE Limited Edition, ale w japońskich sklepach widnieje jako „Manga Edition”. Według producenta, nowy model ma też trochę inne oprogramowanie, które zapewnia szybszą zmianę stron. Chodzi zapewne o kartkowanie, które jednak nie działa tak sprawnie jak w dedykowanym komiksom modelu Kindle. W Stanach cena mangowego Kobo jest o 50 USD wyższa, niż modelu z 8 GB pamięci.

What was I thinking waiting so long to enjoy this series?
Crooked Tree Ranch: Montana, Book 1 - Love Lane Books Limited,RJ Scott,Sean Crisden

With his advertising career coming to an abrupt end, Jay finds that he suddenly needs a way to support not just himself but his sister and her two children.  The Crooked Tree Ranch needs saving. Nate's been running things since his mentor Marcus Allen became ill five years ago but if something doesn't give soon things are going to go from bad to worse. 


When Jay first sees the add for someone to manage the business end of the dude ranch he's less than enthusiastic but the more he thinks about it, the more he begins to think this might be just the thing for him, his sister and her kids. A fresh start in a new place. What he wasn't looking for was a new man but Nate pushes all his buttons and resist as they might both men soon realize that there's an attraction that neither of them know how to fight, but neither are they sure that they want anything either. So maybe friends with benefits?


'Crooked Tree Ranch' is the beginning of this series and along with giving Jay and Nate's story we're given the a whole lot of secondary characters and background as well as an overall story line that will thread it's way through the series...it's a bit of a thriller mystery that this series will continue to build on.


Sean Crisden has once again added depth and uniqueness to the voices in this audiobook making this story all the more enjoyable for me as I was drawn into events by his easy cowboy drawl and needless to say I'm more than ready to get into the next book in this series. I really don't know why I've waited so long to get into this series but I'm glad I haven't waited any longer.

Who knew sleeping with the enemy could be this fun?

Was the one night stand a good idea?

Well, no. Probably not in retrospect.

In my defense I had just moved back into my grandparent’s house, I’d lost my dream job, and a guy on Tinder had stood me up. It was like life had suddenly stamped ‘LOSER’ on my forehead.

So when the guy behind the bar started giving me THE look…you know, the one that promised I’d be screaming his name into the wee hours of the morning? When that guy also has the perfect amount of scruff on his chiseled chin, biceps bulging out of his t-shirt, and a cocky grin you knew he’d earned in the sack…when he gives you that look, you don’t bother to figure out what your six degrees of separation are. You jump on that horse and ride it!

Pun fully and completely intended. And accurate by the way.

I fully admit to feeling sorry for myself and acting impulsively, but by the time I’d figured out WHO the bartender was, I was already falling for him.


** Note: This book was previously titled "The Bartender". Same great story with a fresh new look.**



"Piper Rayne has knocked it out of the park with this hilarious and witty RomCom. I devoured this book in one sitting. I laughed till tears filled my eyes. It's a must read for me!" ~ Author Callie Anderson 

"If you're a lover of romantic comedy that will make you laugh so hard you pee your pants, with a bit of feels thrown in, this is just the book for you!" ~ Heather White from White Hot Reads

Rapid Pulse Collection is a collection of books about hot Alpha Males. Box sets are a favorite of mine because once in awhile you like a quick read to get you through the day or night. Even when you are having to wait it gives you a mental vacation from the time. In addition it set you up to learn about different authors. So for me I just loved this box set and working through trying to read them all.
"My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

Release Day Blitz - Down & Dirty: Zak




Down & Dirty: Zak (Dirty Angels MC, Book 1)

By Jeanne St. James


Genre: Steamy Contemporary Romance


On sale for $2.99 for a limited time or FREE on Kindle Unlimited!


Kindle: http://amzn.to/2uIGwVy

Paperback: http://amzn.to/2fTe7IZ

Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/35845896-down-dirty





Welcome to Shadow Valley where the Dirty Angels MC rule. Get ready to get Down & Dirty because this is Zak’s story…


After spending the last ten years in prison, Zak, former DAMC president, has a few priorities: to reconnect with his “brothers,” to get drunk, and to get laid. Not necessarily in that order. When he spots a stunning woman in the clubhouse and mistakes her for one of the club’s strippers, those priorities get a bit skewed.

Sophie has no idea what happened to her life. One minute she’s totally focused on building her bakery business, and the next? She’s delivering a cake to the Dirty Angels motorcycle club’s “homecoming” celebration for a member who just got out of prison. Little does she know baking that cake will change the rest of her life, not to mention, make her a target for a rival MC. Normally, Sophie wouldn’t be caught dead with a man like Zak, a tattooed, ex-con, badass biker.

When a decades old territory war threatens to rip them apart, Zak will do anything to keep Sophie, his club, and the town safe. But being from two different worlds, the threat they’re under may not be worth the risk.






Sophie had no idea what happened to her life. One minute she’s totally focused on building her bakery business, and the next?


She closed her eyes and groaned. Somehow the next, she’s being pulled through a crowd of rowdy bikers and their “bitches” in the cold night air, heading toward a roaring bonfire that appeared to be made up of a mountain of wood pallets. The flames licked halfway to heaven.


As Zak strode forward, Sophie leaned back trying to slow him down a bit. She was wearing her very favorite suede knee-high boots. The brown ones that had a really nice heel on them that made her legs look longer. And slimmer. Because that was important, too. However, the heel didn’t make it easy to walk in the dark over stones, dead grass and rough patches of dirt.


She had a feeling she would end up on her ass. She should have worn sneakers instead.


Especially since she wasn’t trying to impress anyone here.


She didn’t even want to be here in the first place.


How the hell did she even end up here tonight?


The man currently hauling her around left pissed off last night and she had no clue why he even insisted on pursuing her... pursuing this. Whatever the hell this was.


The worst part was she had shut down the bakery early, locked the door, turned off all the lights, and went upstairs to hide just in case he did show up at eight. Like he had threatened.


And when eight-oh-five came around and he hadn’t shown up, she had breathed a sigh of relief. But then, she should have realized that bikers probably weren’t prompt or watched the time. Life apparently revolved around them, not the clock.


Nope, fuck everyone else.


So, she left the lights off in her apartment, too, and wearing a pair of yoga pants and an old, soft sweatshirt, she sank onto her couch to catch up on some TV.


Well, that was until there was a man in black standing before her, hands on his hips.


And if that didn’t make her scream and her heart beat a million miles a minute, nothing would.


She had no idea how he got in or why she didn’t hear him. Maybe he was right about the shop needing better security.


She needed it just to keep him out.


But as he stood over her, her stomach dropped—once it stopped spinning. Holy Hannah, even in the glow of the TV he looked good with his badass clothes, his badass tats, and his badass bod.


He jerked his stubbled chin in her direction. “That what you’re wearing?”


“How did you get in here?”


“Told you I’d be here at eight.”


She raised her eyebrows in disbelief. “I locked the door.”


“I know. Diesel will be makin’ your place more secure.”


He knew someone named after fuel. Okay, then.


“Question was: That what you’re wearin’?”


She looked down at her clothes, then back up at him. He was judging her clothing choices? “Uh, no. I’m not going.”


He blinked slowly as if trying to keep his patience. “Babe.”


Maybe he should be more worried about her patience. “My name is Sophie.”


“Know what your name is.”


“Babe is a pig in a movie.”


She swore she heard him snort. Though, it sounded much sexier than a pig.


“Got wraps. We can stay here and fuck, or we can go to church.”


Sophie heard the silent, “And then fuck,” he was tacking onto the end of that in his mind.


Wasn’t much of a choice. “How about neither. I hate church.”


This time he definitely snorted. He leaned over and switched on the lamp next to the couch. Sophie squinted as her eyes adjusted to the light.


Hot damn, he looked even better in the light.


Fuck her life.


His beard was freshly trimmed tight to his jaw, his hair actually looked like he ran a comb through it even though it had a shaggy, sexy tousled look to it. His eyes were lit up with amusement.


Then there was the rest of him. He had a well-fitting pair of Levi’s encasing his long legs which ended at his black biker boots, of course. And on her way back up, she noticed the same belt as yesterday, and couldn’t forget that grimy black leather vest. Under it was a black thermal Henley that snugged his torso. And his muscular arms. And that muscular chest of his. She finally let her eyes rise to his and he wore a wide smile.




“Babe. Yeah, thinking stayin’ here and fuckin’ may be the choice you’ll be makin’. I brought a few.”


Sophie shook herself out of her daze. “A few what?”


“Wraps. Nothin’s gonna hold us back tonight.”


Well, that was a relief.
