Troubles at Timber Ski Lodge - Max Elliot Anderson

Troubles at Timber Ski Lodge by Max Elliot Anderson
Book starts out with a family, three generations and they live at the ski lodge. They are on their last attempt to keep it open as previous years have not been profitable.
Besides all the lodge troubles, Eric also has brother and friend problems. Like the idea and the book was so suspenseful as you never knew what was going to happen next.
Keep me reading and wanting to learn more about the ski lodge and all the machines that run it. When the plane with gold crashes the boys want to find it and be the hero.
They start out and end up spending the night in a cabin and head out to find the plane the next morning. Lots of action and quick thinking. Love ending and how they plan to use it and all the requests to be friends and being helpful.
Love how they follow the clues. Reminds me of when I was younger and read the Hardy Boys mystery series. Love this read and hope my grandson will like it as much as I.

Reading progress update: I've read 100%.
Maus, Vol. 2: And Here My Troubles Began - Art Spiegelman

I just finished this for my book club that's meeting tonight. I found the second volume more emotionally demanding than the first. It was a little more real. Can't wait to see what other's thought.

Book blogging

I think that for now, I'm going to be book blogging here and on Dreamwidth. Unfortunately, the Booklikes site issues are only part of my blog related troubles. As my followers probably know by now, my homepages still aren't working - the malware is still doing its evil work on my sites. It makes me wish I could create a nifty little script that could follow the malwarers back to their homes and crash their sites. Sorry. I digress. I think all I can do at the moment is spread myself thin on other book sites that I'm not quite happy with, but that are all I have right now.

 

If this goes on, I may have to do a bit of book blogging on Blogger and Wordpress as well, but I'd rather not. For some reason these days I find Blogger hard to use and I don't really like the ads on Wordpress.com, so for now, I'll use Dreamwidth. People who aren't members of the Dreamwidth community don't need to worry about following my posts there. I've set it up to be visible to non-members. But really, you should consider joining. In many ways it's a great community.

 

Soon I'll be off to the clinic to have my babies weighed and measured. Keeping my fingers crossed that they have grown ok this time, since the last time apparently they had deviated slightly from their projected weight gain curve, if that makes any sense.

Maus, Vol. 2: And Here My Troubles Began
Maus, Vol. 2: And Here My Troubles Began - Art Spiegelman Continuing where the first book left off, Maus II depicts, Vladek's time in Auschwitz and his life immediately following the war as he searched for his wife, Annja, and home. In creasingly, Art and Vladek's current life is shared in the panels, which shows not only the Holocaust forever changed Vladek, but also the guilt that Art experiences, along with their rocky relationship.

Every bit as good as the first book, I really do think these books should be read together. Seperately they only give you part of the story, which I think dilutes it. Together they are a powerful and moving testement to atrocities committed, and a reminder that never again should we allow a group of people to so systemically set out to destroy another.

Troubles With My Kobo Glo - Another Sequel

I hoped this post wouldn't be necessary. And frankly, in the beginning I was really, really calm. So, okay, my eReader had thrown out all the books again (you can read more about this particularly charming peculiarity of my eReader here) and forgotten to place them back. As this happens every once in a while I wasn't to worried. It was only not really useful since I wanted to take it on a trip but never mind, I just took the Kindle.

 

I still wasn't really worried when it happened again the next day. No books on my eReader. I had no time to go over it and explore what could possibly have caused it, but believed it would be okay next time. Third time is lucky?

 

Unfortunately not. I've been trying to solve the problem all day (and with the temperatures already rising enormously that's not been easy). I've thrown half of the books from the eReader already, figuring that might be the problem. It's not just that it's not showing any books anymore. Now it won't even finish synchronising (a terrible task it always does when I charge it and takes about an hour. More on that also in a previous instalment of this soap series). It doesn't seem to halt at a particular point. I've seen all kinds of things; 24, 26, 65, and even 94% (that time I really thought I'd finally fixed it).

 

I'm a bit reluctant to go to KOBO helpdesk because the last time they were less than friendly or useful. Basically they stated the problem MUST be because of my illegal ebooks, I stated I didn't have them, they say I must because I never buy stuff in their shop, I said these were acsm files from publisher, all legal, I got a generic reply that I should remove the illegal ebooks. (I kind of gave up on this point)

Also they said I could reboot the eReader. Of course, I'd never thought about that. < /sarcasm >

 

One thing I do know is that Kobo Glo are not perfectly suitable for very hot temperatures (as in leave them in the sun and they might quit. It's happened to me and a friend and I've also read about it online), so I'm afraid it won't get any better soon.

 

I can still hope though?

 

Sorry for the long rant/post. But I start to worry at this point. Anyone perhaps some experience with this?
