Our Next Title
Dave Killion — April 24, 2011
The Victoria Libertarian Book Club has selected “A Renegade History of the United States ” for our next discussion. I began reading the title a few weeks ago, and it is just a whole lot of fun. Having made it about 1/3 of the way through, there are some specific comments I want to make, but I’ll wait until the club has our first meeting on it in early May. I hope some of you will read along with us, and leave your comments here or on our Facebook page.
This title is one of a few I have been enjoying on my Kindle, which I received as a Christmas gift, and which has really increased the number of books I read relative to blogs and zines. A nice feature of the Kindle is that if one has a pdf, it can be sent to Amazon for conversion into Kindle format. The conversion is done automatically, and apparently accomplished through Optical Character Recognition, which leads to the occasional error. One I have found repeatedly is mistaking the letters ‘rms’ for ‘nus’. I am just juvenile enough to snigger whenever I read something like “He gripped her anus tightly with both hands” and “She waved her anus, desperately trying to get their attention”. Admittedly, I consider this a feature, not a bug.
