There's another word, "natural". There are lots of natural things in this world. Some of them are meant for appropriate time and place though. Some of them, I'd say, not so *good* in public ;)

*Good* being the operative word, though...

I agree Donald. However, I also saw in the past a lot and even now some writers fly post promo in a discussion thread of readers wanting to discuss things not relative to promo. Shame it had to be a few who spoilt it for the majority.

This seems kind of silly to me. When you see in a forum that readers are asking for suggestions for good books it seems only natural to answer them.

Hi Robert, how you doing sir? Oh and sorry to here of your Kindle...mine has had a few falls, has minute crack on the screen but works apart from I have it overloaded and it resets when temperamental. I think Kindle Fire is important for those who use mags, and other periodicals that use colour more, and if you like the front covers all colour too. Back light paper white is good for those who read in semi and darkened rooms especially if you don't want to disturb others. Traditional kindle grey screen is fine too and will stay I think for price as well as the amount of content it holds. I think the battery lasts longer too between charges. The Fire and Paper white use more battery with back lighting don't they?
One thing, check your insurance policy and company regards if covered for accidental damage as a visitor/third party did it...some do and no extra for occasional claims on excess.
Take care now, all the best:)

Robert, I'm worrying now about the reviews you are doing. "This book's narrative skipped about a lot and at times was quite incoherent..."

My prediction: Kindles will get cheaper until they are easily affordable. E-ink will always have enthusiasts, mostly heavy readers.

Posted on 16 Jan 2013 01:29:29 GMT
I lost my Kindle down between the cushions on the sofa when I fell asleep reading. As a result, several heavy people sat on it and it has become temperamental. Often it flicks through several pages at a time, which is highly irritating. It will need replacing at some point, so I am wondering if you predictive types (e.g. Amazon science fiction contenders, marketing gurus and the genius of the predictive text) can give me some advice please. I should like to keep up with the trend, so my question is, will the majority of readers move on to the Kindle Fire, or will they read ebooks on other tablets in the future? I predict that all contributions will be gratefully received.

Thanks, Robert

Yes, we had plenty of numpties but mainly from inbreeding. I realised how bad when a child told me her Dad was her Grandad too...he was.
The gene pool shrinketh but the tadpoles fight back is how we referred to the problem.
I worked in a smart middle class area for some years...not bliss either, the parents wanted their children to be two years above national average attainment targets and doing GCSE by 11 and up. Woe betide you if they failed the 11+ for Grammar it was your fault for not dishing and marking 4 pieces of homework a night!!!

That's another new one on me (the emoticon). Snorkelling?

My OH is a teacher & has much the same problems - nothing to do with immigration, just numpty kids.

Sounds like Apocalypto meets Mind Your Language. Now, that'd be a film...

Oh I adore the cutting edge thought and humour you people offer :)
Monica, this book on migration is reflected throughout the land. To the point the indigenous population can spend hours in a town centre, confused and lost as they do not recognize the languages nor written language on the shops advertising, of their well what was their former country. I'm not against some migration for safety needs as in place of
refuge.
I recall here in the Midlands when accents were recognized as Birminham, (sound thick n stupid) Dudley (Dudley bugs as in prehistoric) Cradley Heath (never learnt the letter w, talk of our 'oman and last 'eek') West Bromwich..(yam yams, you'm goo in ere ay yer...or thicker than thick) Walsall, ( think they'm posher than the rest) Sutton Coldfield and Solihull...(we know we are posher than the rest), not forgetting Wolverhampton...ulverampt'n in local spake! They don't get called The Dingles for no reason!!!
Now it has virtually all gone. My final year as a teacher which was five years ago today I had 17 different nationalities in my one class of 32. (yes 30 is norm but we had a women's refuge so extras at times)
Rant over!

How strange--I am indeed at work on a sequel, but how did you know? You're fierce cute, so you are. An endearing quality in you, though.

My projected work is tentatively entitled Xchatalan and Xchatalazuma in Hackney: Carry On, Compadres. It will be an entrancing tale I tell, with a sting in the tall tail. Whilst on the surface it will be a heart-warming account of recent immigrants to an inner city, it will at heart address matters of social interest to all: That 'heart'--does it still beat? will the gods accept it if it doesn't? if not, may I eat it? (Only if your master says so. There, I've just lowered my authorial standards to please you, cco.) Expect raw primitive combat aplenty as well as tales of eternal days spent in the fight to find warmth, food, and shelter in a fiercely strange place where the inhabitants speak an uncouth language.

No surprise at the angle your suggestions take. ;)

Musicals, though...I'm sure Monica will be in favour of that. If all her phantom novels from over the years were actually written - not to mention filmed - they'd make an interesting collection.

gille...i hear Monica has been considering a range of titles with consideration of future films (do not ask what sort of films, gille) or even spin off musicals for her follow on novel.
I would like to offer a suggestion or two...Xchatalan in Bondage as a sequel to Xchatalan Unbound, This would go down well for BDSM readers just starting their new A-Z reading challenge for 2013. Oh, but then Spamalot in Camelot meets Montezuma for Revenge!
Er, were these intended to be family friendly Monica:)

That's very interesting. Just out of social interest, are you planning a sequel?
