Mia6, rubysmama, we never discharge below 50% and charge to full 100% :) this is necessary for the health and longevity of the battery :)
I've set it now to 40%, so hopefully that will be good.

one more tip: pay attention to the power of the charger, they are different, and more powerful charge faster :)
Thank you for another good tip as I didn't know that.. With your work in artificial intelligence you are able to give us lots of good tips!!

Ok, I'll change it to 50% :)

one more tip: pay attention to the power of the charger, they are different, and more powerful charge faster :)
I'm just using the one that come with it. Took a few hours to charge yesterday, but that's probably since I let it get so low. :ohwell:

Still # 3 on 7 copies for "The Last Time I Lied", so while I wait, I borrowed the non-fiction book The Inconvenient Indian.

"The Inconvenient Indian is at once a “history” and the complete subversion of a history—in short, a critical and personal meditation that the remarkable Thomas King has conducted over the past 50 years about what it means to be “Indian” in North America. "

So far, it's a tad boring, with too many names of battles and dates. Hoping it gets a bit less "textbook-like" once I get further into it.

K Koveshnikov Alex, we know you and Nicky are very busy but if you have any spare time, please feel free to join our book

have it figured out, you don't ha!! Then in March we're reading The Martian by Andy Weir. would love to have you join us!

Bluestar's Prophecy (Warriors Super Edition, #2)
this book, which began our long-term love for Cats-Warriors :) just read it, it’s small ... and then decide whether to continue to read the series ... an infinitely wise and piercing story about Life ...
It sounds great. I'll see if my library has it if not they can get it from another..

EDIT: Another library has it so I will have it in few days! Thanks for the recommendation👌

In the kitchen
I read both ebooks and physical hardcover books. I can no longer read paperbacks without getting a heckuva headache. I buy both, unless it's an author that I've been collecting; then I'll get the hardcover version. I use the Kindle Paperwhite (originally bought for Rick's mother, but she didn't like it) for the free Kindle books, but I use the Overdrive/Libby app on my iPad for library books.

Finally finished Old Bones on Monday; it really was excellent. And Crooked River (the new Pendergast) came yesterday via UPS. I'm going to take it out to the shed, flop on the couch and devour it this afternoon. And yeah, it came via Prime. I'm a Prime member.

Other books I've read: (lots of cozy mysteries)
Old Bones - Preston/Child
The Stalking - Heather Graham
Twisted twenty-Six - Janet Evanovich
Aunt Dimity and the Heart of Gold - Nancy Atherton
Into the Wild - Erin Hunter
Apple Cider Slaying - Julie Anne Lindsay
Haunted House Murder - Leslie Meier
Far and Away - Fern Michaels
A Borrowing of Bones - Paula Munier
