Weekly Meme: Book Blogger Hop: 2/4-2/7

February 4, 2011 24 comments

Book Blogger Hop

Thought I’d try something new today and join the Book Blogger Hop (via Crazy For Books blog) Thought this would be a good opportunity for me to connect with other book lovers out there in cyberspace 🙂 The Hop lasts Friday-Monday so there’ll be plenty of time to check the other participating blogs out!

So here’s the question of the week:

“What are you reading now and why are you reading it?”

My answer:

I am currently reading Stephen King’s latest Full Dark, No Stars on my Kindle. My dad (a die-hard King fan) bought it, and since I’m sharing his Kindle account, I get to read it for free (and without waiting for him to finish reading – a benefit of the Kindle)!

Full Dark, No Stars is a collection of four novellas, and I’ve already finished with the first one “1922” which is about the unravelling of a man’s life after he commits a murder – very creepy and yet also heartbreaking story. I was disappointed with King’s previous book Under the Dome, but with this 4-novella collection, looks like he’s got his mojo back! Already looking forward to reading the other stories: “Big Driver,” “A Good Marriage,” and “Fair Extension.”

And of course, I’m also looking forward to blog-hopping this weekend! 🙂

Cool! Here’s a new FREE game app for the Kindle – Video Poker! With all these games, who has time to read these days?! 😉

Video Poker (A Free Game for Kindle)‘ by Amazon Digital Services is available on the Amazon Kindle site for FREE! Just click here to download! (If you’re new to Amazon games, check out all the free Kindle games on this page!)

Game Description

Play Vegas-style video poker on Kindle anytime, anywhere.

Video Poker accurately simulates the Vegas-style video poker machine known as Jacks or Better. After making a bet, you will be dealt five cards. You select which of these five cards to hold, and redraw the rest to try to make the best poker hand possible. A hand with a pair of Jacks or better wins.

The built-in Strategy feature, which you can turn on and off at any time, will provide recommendations for how to play given the hand you were dealt, and will give you hints on how to improve if you fail make the best move. This guidance will help you learn how to play the game, and how to maximize your payouts.

Video Poker tracks how much you win or lose and how often you play the best possible hand.

Try Video Poker today!

New Game App for the Kindle – True Backgammon!

February 4, 2011 Leave a comment

Here’s a new game app for the Kindle – Backgammon! – maybe they’ll also have a chess or chinese checkers game up soon too? 🙂

True Backgammon (A Classic Board Game for Kindle)‘ by Compulab is available on the Amazon Kindle site for $1.99! Just click here to download!

Game Description

True Backgammon allows you to play the classic game wherever you take your Kindle.

Said to be 1000 years older than chess, Backgammon is one of the oldest board games known. Gameplay involves a combination of strategy, probability and luck, with you and Kindle taking turns rolling two dice, while moving your pieces in opposite directions and eventually off the board. Each move offers opportunities to hit opponent’s checkers or block fields. Like all good games, the rules themselves are easy to learn and the game comes with full built-in instructions.

Suitable for beginners and advanced players, you can play matches against Kindle at three skill levels. You can also play in landscape or portrait orientation, adjust various options and suspend a game at any time to resume it later.

Enjoy playing one of the oldest classic board games ever made, now on your Kindle.
