Something dark has found a home in Israel

Disturbing account. To be clear, I am not defending the actions of terrorists—-of any terrorists.

UPDATE: Add this note.

Digital-book borrowing

leave a comment »

I wanted to see if the first Joanna Brady mystery eased up a little on the incessant recitation of backstories that I found in her most recent. However, my library offered only a digital version, so I placed a hold on that, and this morning got an email from the Northern California Digital Library, which apparently serves as ebook repository for public libraries of the region. I was asked to choose a format for download, and in addition to PDF and Adobe EPUB, the Kindle format was available. I selected that, clicked download, and then (interestingly) was taken directly to the Amazon.com site to download the title, which I have for a while. Then when I finish, I can click a “return title” button and it will vanish from my Kindle and become available to the next person who has a hold.

Interesting service for Amazon to provide.
