since i need to do a system restore about every two months, i will be needing to download my bundle of books again, and again...alix, any idea how many times this can be done? or do i maybe need to ratchet up the speed of my reading in order to "beat the clock"?:) my apologies for being such a pain, especially after you've been so nice and all....

As long as you keep the email you should be fine to do it whenever you wish. If you lose it just email me, I'll send it again. If I might ask though, why on earth do you need to do a System Restore so often? Are you having issues? There are things you can do to prevent having to do a restore.

I picked up a copy of The Edge of Day by Laurie Lee.

A story of a boy's early years in England around the end of the first world war.

The story is told through the boy's eyes starting at the age of three.

A cozy escape, time travel, to a simpler time.

i've been doing the restore for a variety of reasons that wouldn't make sense to a computer savvy person. but the usual and most compelling reason is to dodge the relentless warnings and threats from norton security and semantec that my protection is about to/has already expired--(even though it never is) the restore presents me as a "new" customer with a 60 day trial membership....and norton & co. lay off for another little while....

There are plenty of good, FREE anti malware/spyware/virus protection programs that don't eat up your system resources like Norton. . .and doing a system restore that often can do damage to your computer too.

I finished PartnerShip and am starting on Water For Elephants. It seems good so far.

FYI - Babe, that is the third book in a series. "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" is the first and "The Girl Who Played With Fire" is the second.
