Actually Dan Brown wrote Angels and Demons before The DaVinci Code. The movies were made 'out of order'.

Then I must have read it before.

It's sneaky the way they come out with a book you've already read and just change the cover. I almost always check the publication date before buying a book by a favorite author because I've made that mistake a few times.

I didn't check this time, because of the new cover, and from thinking it was later than DaVinci code because of the order of the movies.

It has probably been long enough since I read it that I will be able to enjoy it without always knowing what is going to happen next.

I was just watching Shrek reading his Kindle, he reached up to turn the page, then looked to see if I noticed he did it.

Amazon just quietly launched the ability to share Kindle books with other Kindle users. You can "lend" a book for 2 weeks. It does not work with every book though.

S'okay...I had a catalog (paper one) on the laptop the other day and tried to use the mouse to turn the page.

Exactly what we were looking for...but I guess Shrek and I can just switch Kindles back and forth!

We both downloaded and paid for a couple of books we wanted all the time on our Kindles. Science-Fiction classics.

Another thing you and Shrek can do is register and deregister on each others accounts. You can have 5 or 6 devices on each account and you can register and deregister as often as you want. The only thing you won't be able to do is read the same thing at the same time.

Thank you for that info...this is the perfect fix for us.
