Library Books on the Kindle?

Kindle Library BooksAre you curious as to whether you can get library books on your Kindle? If so, you’ve come to the right place — we are going to show you how to check out library books using your Kindle right now.

I happen to be a big fan of my local library and the Kindle I hold in my hand everyday. Is it possible the two can act in a complimentary role? Do I not need to buy books on Amazon? Can I just rent books for my Kindle from the local library?

It turns out Gina from Montana had a similar question. She emailed me:

Question: Richard, I heard that you can check out Kindle Books from your local library. Is this true? If so, does it work well and how do I do it? Thanks in advance, Gina — Missoula, Mt

What is Google

What is GoogleMany people want to know, “What is Google?”

Do you find it ironic that people probably search Google looking for the term What is Google? I do.

But that is just me.  I enjoy irony.

Google Inc. is a multinational public cloud computing and Internet search technologies corporation.

How boring!

In fact, I recently received this question from one our frequent visitors:

Question: I am wondering how many people that there are in the world? I keep seeing statistics like “There are 1.5 billion Catholics in the world” or “If Facebook were a country, it would be the third largest country”.
