kindle unlimited


KINDLE UNLIMITED

I like to think I’m one of the best writers on the Internet.  I might be slightly guilty of thinking too highly of myself, but there you go.  And I like to think that I’m a pretty hard working writer.  Analytics out the wazoo nearly every day.  Yet, sometimes, once in a very great while, I like to have a lazy day and write one of those infamous List Articles.  You know, the ones hacks churn out to fill space.  Today, let’s talk about Kindle Unlimited and I’ll give you examples of how much better they have gotten.  When I first started trying the service, they sucked.  Bad.  I spent more time trying to find a book on loan than I did actually reading them.  And that is only slightly exaggerating.  But now, I’m overwhelmed with choices and not just zombie fiction.  You don’t need the Kindle e-paper reading device, although they are nice saving energy.  You can use any computing device-just download An App For That at Amazon.  You get to check out up to ten eligible books at a time, and must return one to get an eleventh ( you just go into Manage My Device in your account at Amazon, click on the book to return and click on the new book you want ).  Now, there are some listed books under Kindle Unlimited.  When you get a recommendation based on prior sales, they list more under Unlimited.  But generally you must click on a book and see if it is offered in Unlimited.  A little bit of work and a lot of reward.  And only $10 a month.

  1. You don't even have to return a book first. If you find a kindle unlimited book you want to try you can do the sample thing, or if you are certain enough that you want to read it just choose to take it, and you will get the option of turning in one of the other kindle unlimited books.
    If you can read more than 2 books a week ( I get between 3 and 6 a week) kindle unlimited is a bargain you cant pass up.
    Down side is you cant "share" the book with other kindle users the way you can books you buy.

    1. Piss on sharing-those bastards can get their own KU.

  2. "The Lazy Survivalists Guide by Stephen Samaha." Sounds right up my alley. And no, I'm not kidding ;)

  3. Finally pulled the switch on some junk land near Elko James.

    A few questions?

    Did you fore go title insurance? In my case it was ¼ the price of the land, so I went without, considering that the owner\realtor had a good reputation.

    The rules allow for RV's, but stipulate:

    “Must comply with State septic/water regs for year round RV use.”

    Is that the same as with your plots of land? How serious are they about enforcing it, assuming that one wants to live on their land all year and not install a septic?

    1. Same as with mine. I had an illegal grey water system they found out about right away, but I think that a neighbor narced me out. Just keep things out of sight and you should be okay. I think, mainly, they want their fee for the inspection ( $800 last time I checked ). I know a lot of people who are running illegal/unsanitary methods, so they can't be actually checking too close. The general "rule of thumb" seems to be "it ain't illegal unless u r caught".

    2. Mine is about 15 miles from Elko James, on the far north end of one of the less inhabited developments. In fact, I don't think that there is anyone else out there, so I have less worries in that regard. Other than the section line, it's overgrown rough roads, according to the Realtor. Glad I hung onto the 4x4.

      I'm real happy to have secured a piece of land in the area. As it was, land still being reasonably priced in the area, there were only a few parcels left that were in my price range. And I got 2.5 acres at a great price.

      I'm curious to know how you handled your mail when you were off-grid? I suppose you had parcels sent to your place of work? What would someone do if they didn't have that option? I wonder if you can have parcels sent right to the post office for pick up?

    3. In your area, as an example, if you got off on the Rynden ( Ryndon-sp? ) exit you see a gas station/mini-mart on the north end. South of the hiway is an RV park. Right next to the store is a bunch of post office cluster boxes. You would get one of those boxes by going to the post office behind Smith's ( exit 301 ) and signing up. That PO is where you pick up big boxes that don't fit in the cluster boxes.

    4. Cool; thanks James. You take Coalmine Canyon Rd to Mesa Verde, and it's out that direction about 4 miles north of I-80. The impression that I get is that it's rough out there, so I'm looking at a winch for my Jeep that hasn't been driven in years. New engine, clutch, but has sat idle for a long time. I was somewhat fearful of buying too close to a town of 20K, so I got out a little ways.

    5. My lot off Ryden is four miles north of the highway, and I got to it in summer in a two wheel drive. Granted, at five miles an hour because of the ruts and lack of shocks on my old van ( when it was running, prior to becoming a storage shed ). You might be better off than you think.

    6. Good to know Jim. It sounds like it's more of a clearance issue than anything else. The realtor mentioned that it's really overgrown with brush, and the only part of the road that's well graded, is the section line road, so a tall truck is recommended. To me it's a bonus if it keeps the bureaucrats out! But it's probably going to be lonely out there.

      Delete
    7. What lonely? You must work, etc. You'll relish the peace and quit. I did, until the neighborhood filled up. I wish I could get the girlfriend to move out there, myself. I'd quit my job in a heartbeat and go on food stamps, just to get out of this gerbil wheel. Alas, she wants a turn key house and I'm not sure she'd do the commute, even in her Jeep.

      Delete
    8. I've given that some thought as well James, and I'm not sure what to do about work? I don't think that you can get out there all year round, (Though a dual sport motorcycle could probably do the trip year round. ) so a seasonal line of work might have to do? I guess you could always get a room cheap enough out there for the winter, assuming you had a part or full time job in Elko. The original plan was to go back home to CA for the winter so as to be around part of the time to be of some assistance to my aging mother. And then maybe work a seasonal holiday job while there, stretching the funds until the following year.

      As far as solitude goes, that's why I didn't want to settle for just an acre. I wanted to have a slightly larger buffer surrounding me in case it ever builds up out there, and I'm hoping that it doesn't. That's also why I chose a lot in the northern most section that wasn't as accessible. I have 2.5 acres, and I forgot the dimensions, but it's around 300'x300', and roughly square, so no one will ever be closer than 150' from me.

      I hear you on the girlfriend. That's what I meant about loneliness, since I don't think that I will actually convince some women to move off-grid with me? I know that there are some that will, but let's be honest, not many. So you would essentially have to lower your standards, and settle for any women that would be willing to do so. Where's that damn Cherry 2000 technology when you need it! ;)

    9. Oh, and another thing, which is probably mostly just paranoia on my part? But does one have to worry about such things as meth cookers setting up labs on their property, or running into the likes of such going to or from the rural properties in that area?

      It's not a moral issue with me, but rather a concern, since such types tend to be paranoid, and sometimes dangerous.

      Delete
    10. Mostly I believe the issues are with dealers rather than cookers, but I may be completely off.

    11. Seasonal work might be a hit and miss. I had planned on renting a trailer space the four worst winter months at the nearby park, living on the land the rest of the year, for full time work. Although you never know when it will be a mild winter with no snow.

  4. You mean I didn't need to buy all of those books by that dork Dakin? Damn!

    1. You still need to spend money on most of mine. Sweet Survivalist Six Pack is not on KU. And I'm not a dork, I'm a nerd. :)

    2. Nerds are highly-skilled useful people wanted by the fair sex.

      Dorks have mothers who may love them.

    3. I'm pretty sure Mom didn't like me too much. An eighth of an acre garden, bursting with fresh raw veggies, and she's shoving cooked bunnie food down my maw. A salad? I'll eat the crap out of. Cooked? Beyond gross.
