Woa, late to the party

Just picked up The Chronicles of Master Li and Number Ten Ox trilogy. It's pretty hard to find, so finding the trilogy on Amazon for $2.99 was too good to pass up.

Reading the Malazan series right now. On book 4.

Not sure. I only have books purchased through Amazon on the device. Those files are .apnx, .mbp, and .prc.

So those OP links aren't exactly, er, legal?

All my Steven Erikson books all came from the publisher via Amazon with the DRM from the publisher request off.

I could send them directly to another Kindle AFIK

No.

You can put whatever you want on your Kindle. E-books, word documents, PDF files, etc. can all be read on Kindles.

On the Kindle Fire the "Library" section will only show you downloaded books, but the non-downloaded ones can be seen and accessed in the "Documents" section.

If you MUST have the books appear in the "Library" section, then you can use Caliblre to modify the beta information in the file (look on the web for instructions).

superCalo -  Kitchen Confidential

Anthony Bourdain




This guy is one of the guest judges on "top chef" which is the best cooking show out there besides Ramseys Kitchen Nightmares, he also had a show about travelling the world eating exotic bugs and stuff which is not my thing really.
But this book is about the life of Chef, not a celebrity chef, because he wasnt one at the time, but a line cook, a prep cook, moving up to head chef at various resturants around New York, the personalities involved, when not to eat certain foods , in terms of dont order fish on a mondays, never get mussels unless you have seen the kitchen, how owners lose so much money, why resturants often fail, why Americans make poor kitchen staff, how strange, violent, etc the back room staff are, what the roles of each station involve, how to be successful and not in the trade, mistakes hes made and admits too.
Fasinating insight into what actually goes on in kitchens ..suprisingly hells kitchen is not hat far from the truth it appears

uG kindle dropbox link

https://www.dropbox.com/s/ev8w3nlrrbp9oh6/Kitchen%20Confidential_%20Adventures%20in%20the%20%20-%20Anthony%20Bourdain.mobi

Looks very cool.

Thanks

Heroin Diaries by Nikki Sixx - MOBI

Heroin Diaries by Nikki Sixx - Epub


  I read this over the weekend. I always knew Crüe were pretty debauched, but this tales remarkable. How sixx kept it together enough to continually update his diary I'll never know. 

Good read, good recommendation!

I've got Cryptonomicon on my Amazon wish list. I'm not going to get around to that one for a while due to backlog.




Anyone have digital copies of Stross' The Missile Gap or A Colder War?

Yep that's the one, I will search around, always meant to read it, the review of the nicki styxx one made me think of it. Phone Post
  It's a similar book, the stix one was more a diary of a year in his life, whereas the keidis book is more of a memoir? Both very similar personalities, and both very self-destructive.
