My Kindle Paperwhite arrived today! Since Japan claimed they wouldn`t be selling it, (instead to try and drive sales for Kobo which is made by Rakuten) I had to have it delivered to my parent`s house and then have them send it to me.
My new kindle paperwhite! Loving it so far….actually getting me to read books and stuff….woah…
So far it is pretty awesome, hooked it up to wifi and it has synced nicely, the lighting also as advertised works great whether your in the dark or sitting in direct sunlight. It is definitely causing me to read more!
Unfortunately since my recent diagnosis of a tumor in the adrenal gland the first books I have downloaded have all been endocrine system or adrenal gland related books.
Also thanks to my new venture Silviculture Ideas I am doing a little research on running a marketing business. Pretty sure I can do it but it never hurts to get other people`s experiences as well as see what is going on in the inbound marketing world. It seems to be all the rage and the way of the future for marketing services so the $10.00 or so it costs to get that info on my kindle is more than worth it!
The only complaint I have right now is that it does not seem to handle Japanese ebooks quite well yet. Would be nice if it did!
The descriptions seem to be fine, but if I were to buy the book things like titles and authors are kind of important.
A website dedicated to providing services for authors and publishers who want to translate their stories and gain a whole new readership and set of imaginations to penetrate.
Big News! My newest project NovelTranslations.com is up and running!
Novel Translation is aimed to provide authors and publishers with a stress-free way to get their works into another culture and another mindset for their stories to bloom.
There will be an active blog that will feature informative articles, current projects being worked on and of course we will be featuring our favorite client`s and all of their great stories that will be available to you in whatever language they want! I hope for it to also grow into a an online community for translators to learn more about the industry and also how they can themselves improve their translation skills.
I am currently writing my first book on “How to set up your Business Site for Little Time and Money”
In the book I take the reader through how to set up a simple WordPress Website that can act as a simple business website, I include screen shots and alternate ways to do things just in case the reader happens to be a little more knowledgeable than the average reader.
To be honest the hardest part is going back over it and checking formatting. Because it will be on the Kindle there are a lot of things I have to check which includes how images show up in the HTML and what fonts will automatically come up on which device. Now with the new Kindle Fires and Kindle Paperwhites there are a few things you really need to check. I right now am looking at a few pictures that for whatever reason did not make it through! Damn!
Oh well back to work…
