Designing for Digital Reading


$40.99


Reading is a complex human activity that has evolved, and co-evolved, with technology over thousands of years. Mass printing in the fifteenth century firmly established what we know as the modern book, with its physical format of covers and paper pages, and now-standard features such as page numbers, footnotes, and diagrams. Today, electronic documents are enabling paperless reading supported by eReading technologies such as Kindles and Nooks, yet a high proportion of users still opt to print on paper before reading. This persistent habit of “printing to read” is one sign of the shortcomings of digital documents – although the popularity of eReaders is one sign of the shortcomings of paper. How do we get the best of both worlds? The physical properties of paper (for example, it is light, thin, and flexible) contribute to the ease with which physical documents are manipulated; but these properties have a completely different set of affordances to their digital equivalents. Paper can be folded, ripped, or scribbled on almost subconsciously – activities that require significant cognitive attention in their digital form, if they are even possible. The nearly subliminal interaction that comes from years of learned behavior with paper has been described as lightweight interaction, which is achieved when a person actively reads an article in a way that is so easy and unselfconscious that they are not apt to remember their actions later. Reading is now in a period of rapid change, and digital text is fast becoming the predominant mode of reading. As a society, we are merely at the start of the journey of designing truly effective tools for handling digital text. This book investigates the advantages of paper, how the affordances of paper can be realized in digital form, and what forms best support lightweight interaction for active reading. To understand how to design for the future, we review the ways reading technology and reader behavior have both changed and remained

Lamb to Slaughter


Lamb to Slaughter


$1.99


The brainchild of Amazon Kindle Number One bestselling western writers Mike Stotter and Ben Bridges, PICCADILLY PUBLISHING is dedicated to reissuing new and classic fiction from Yesterday and Today! LAMB TO SLAUGHTER It’s 1862, and rebel-held Richmond, Virginia, is under attack by Union forces. Belle Slaughter goes undercover as an agent for Pinkerton’s Secret Service. Her passport into the capital’s society is marriage to the dissolute Confederate colonel, Courtney Monette, but that doesn’t cramp her style. She’ll play the field and honey-talk her way into the confidence of any eager young Johnny Reb officer who knocks on her boudoir door. What Belle discovers leads her down a dangerous path that-if she’s caught-promises risk of death by firing squad or the hangman’s noose. As the enemy closes in on her, Kirby Langstrom is hunting down an outlaw irregular and comes across a sinister secret society that is mobilizing its forces under the banner of the South. Whilst both agents struggle against the might of Confederate subterfuge, an old enemy rears his head and with blood in his eye crosses the battle lines in search of revenge. The adversaries are destined to come together against the background of the first major conflict of the Civil War. Even as the struggle continues more plots come to light that are certain to undermine the advantage of both sides in the conflict. Bo Peep may have lost her sheep, but Belle has found her little lamb … and she intends for it to go to the cleaners before it’s slaughtered.

The Pilot’s Manual: Multi-Engine Flying (Kindle edition)


$34.99


This is the Ebook (epub) edition of this title. Multi-engine flying opens up new opportunities to utilize an airplane for personal or professional transportation, allowing you to cruise faster, carry more passengers or cargo, and in most cases, fly higher and in greater comfort. With this enhanced capability comes an increased complexity in the aircraft systems, their operations and performance, and pilot decision-making. The Pilot’s Manual: Multi-Engine Flying covers the differences between these aircraft and their single-engine counterparts, providing detailed instruction on systems, aerodynamics, and performance. With reference to the most widely flown light twin training aircraft, the authors cover everything needed for pilots to earn a multi-engine rating using real-world scenarios and examples. Each chapter details the objectives and key terms involved, with descriptions of the systems supported with full color illustrations, an overview of how the pilot interacts with the systems during aircraft operations, and possible emergencies specific to those systems. Review questions conclude the chapters to deepen understanding and apply the material. Tying together systems knowledge, checklist protocol, and aeronautical decision making as taught in this book, a multi-engine pilot can be confident of achieving mastery of the aircraft.

The first snow has already fallen and covered London in white.A lone writer by the name of William is working late, when he notices a flickering light opposite the street in the neglected Winchester cemetery. He decides to investigate it further…An extract from the story:”…Not responsible for my actions…” she whispered slowly and stood up, tip-toe, and kissed him. He was too surprised to draw back and when he tried, she had already placed her unexpectedly strong arms around his neck and he lacked the strength to pry them away. In fact, he felt strangely helpless, like it was someone else who acted instead of him, as he kissed her back. His hands involuntarily reached her waist and pulled her closer. She, on the other hand, shredded his clothes like they were made of paper and pulled him down towards the floor with him on top of her.
