Where, oh, where, have our posts gone?
A reader brought a small technical issue to our attention. On days when we have several quick posts in succession such as on typical Monday, earlier posts disappear from the homepage. The most recent 10 posts are on the first page and the second page begins with posts from 24 hours before, dropping 4-6 posts. You can find the posts by selecting a category or searching on a title. If you wait patiently, the posts will reappear later in the day.
We don’t want you to miss a single posts! Our IT support is looking for a solution. If you know the answer to our conundrum, please leave a comment.
This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.
A month ago Barnes & Noble released the NOOK Simple Touch™ with GlowLight™. IT apparently has been successful as the website states it is temporarily out of stock and will ship on May 30, 2012. B&N is marketing the e-reader in this way:

NOOK’s GlowLight illuminates your screen with a soft light that is perfect for bedtime reading. With advanced lighting technology not available on any other reader, GlowLight lets you stay up late reading in total comfort. . .

Amazon has clearly left Kindle owners in the dark. Reuters has published an article stating that Amazon.com will be offering a “monochrome e-reader with front lighting” as one of its new versions of the Kindle e-reader and tablet. The new Kindles will be in the stores in July according to the article.
The downside of front lighting is that the battery will need recharging more frequently. That’s still preferable to the replacing the batteries in an external light.
A cheap read
In this second book of Kathryn Magendie’s much-praised series about the journey of a woman dealing with the ghosts of a dysfunctional family, Virginia Kate Carey seeks the loving commitment that eluded her in Tender Graces ($8.00 now; was offered free on May 10).
“Vee” is idealistic and naïve despite the witness she has served to the fractured heritage of her parents’ and grandmother’s dreams. Vee continues her journey toward wisdom, building small bridges over the chasms of hurt and longing. The inspiration of hope lingers in her.
Tender Graces and now Secret Graces explore three women’s lives: Daughter, Mother, Grandmother, and passes through the fulcrum of Virginia Kate’s emerging life as a lover and mother and storyteller, chronicling the heart ache and hope of her family and herself. You can buy this novel for only $1.99 today – a great price for a sequel.
