Housekeeping: You’ve come a long way, Kindle 4 comments
A dozen years ago today
Twelve years ago today Amazon announced the Kindle 1, forever changing how many readers consume books, newspapers, blogs and more.
Though other companies introduced e-readers before the Kindle, Amazon’s large following and marketing power quickly moved Kindle to the most popular device. The Kindle 1 held 200 medium-length books and sold for $399. The Kindle Store bragged 88,000 titles.
Read the complete Kindle timeline here at a site named ebookfriendly.com

 

Check out the original webpage for the K1. Read the product overview. If you can download the correct Flash Player you can view videos by Jeff Bezos and authors giving their support for the K1. You can also watch the famous “drop test” (remember that?).
 

 

I had forgotten several events that are mentioned in the history and remembered others that weren’t in the timeline. In 2009 skins were all the rage for personalizing the K2.
Blogs were big with the K2 audience. The novelty of getting an update every day when I turned on the Kindle was heady. After just a few weeks the bloom was off the rose. The blogs were stacking up unread and I canceled the subscriptions.
The timeline does not mention the day that games were available on the K2. The Kindle Forum (remember that before Amazon ended it) was all atwitter about the games.

Miss Lavinia is as maddeningly eccentric as ever—and absolutely will not suffer the questionable advice of her children. This does not surprise Caroline. Nor does the fact that Tall Pines is still brimming with scandals and secrets, betrayals and lies.
But she soon discovers that something is different this time around. It lies somewhere in the distance between her and her mother—and in her understanding of what it means to come home….

The Republicans’ “golden boy” — and a loyal, unquestioning tool of the powerful special interests — handsome, unthreatening, Florida governor-by-default Marlon Conrad seems a virtual shoo-in for re-election. That is, until he undergoes a radical personality shift during a bloody military action in the Balkans.
Now it’s just three weeks before the election and Marlon is suddenly talking about “issues” and “reform” as he crosses the length and breadth of his home state with an amnesiac speechwriter and a chief of staff who turns catatonic in the presence of minorities. The governor’s new-found conscience might well cost him the election, though. And it appears that pretty much everybody from Tallahassee to Miami Beach is trying to kill him…

Sarah Smith in Pine Hill, Kentucky has had her heart broken in the past. She pours herself into her work at church and into special projects—like making a quilt for a wounded warrior.

Bodie expected Sarah to be an elderly lady, not a lovely young woman. When she mistakes him for a handyman, he doesn’t immediately set her straight. Instead, he sets about repairing the home she’s turning into a bed and breakfast. Sarah’s presence and the spirit of the small town bring Bodie something he thought he’d left far behind on the battlefield: hope.

Peter Rena is a “fixer.” He and his partner, Randi Brooks, earn their living making the problems of the powerful disappear. They get their biggest job yet when the White House hires them to vet the president’s nominee for the Supreme Court. Judge Roland Madison is a legal giant, but he’s a political maverick, with views that might make the already tricky confirmation process even more difficult. Rena and his team go full-bore to cover every inch of the judge’s past, while the competing factions of Washington D.C. mobilize with frightening intensity: ambitious senators, garrulous journalists, and wily power players on both sides of the aisle.
All of that becomes background when a string of seemingly random killings overlaps with Rena’s investigation, with Judge Madison a possible target. Racing against the clock to keep his nominee safe, the President satisfied, and the political wolves at bay, Rena learns just how dangerous Washington’s obsession with power—how to get it and how to keep it—can be.

Working in an alternate version of Victorian London, Librarian-spy Irene has settled into a routine, collecting important fiction for the mysterious Library and blending in nicely with the local culture. But when her apprentice, Kai—a dragon of royal descent—is kidnapped by the Fae, her carefully crafted undercover operation begins to crumble.
Kai’s abduction could incite a conflict between the forces of chaos and order that would devastate all worlds and all dimensions. To keep humanity from getting caught in the crossfire, Irene will have to team up with a local Fae leader to travel deep into a version of Venice filled with dark magic, strange coincidences, and a perpetual celebration of Carnival—and save her friend before he becomes the first casualty of a catastrophic war.
But navigating the tumultuous landscape of Fae politics will take more than Irene’s book-smarts and fast-talking—to ward off Armageddon, she might have to sacrifice everything she holds dear….
