¡Kindle sorpresa!

Las crónicas del Otro Mundo

Me dedicaba al cien por cien a darlo todo con el tratamiento indicado para dicha dolencia, lo que significa que estaba reposando como si no existiera un mañana, con lo cual darlo todo con el tratamiento consistía básicamente en no hacer nada más que permanecer estático.

Guests walked the wide aisles of the new Amazon store on Southport near Cornelia on Tuesday, some commenting on the book titles.

“You are a Bad Ass. I just thought that’s a cute title,” said Linda, from Chicago.

Some of the younger customers were more impressed.

One woman drove in from Schaumburg, specifically to check out the Amazon store.

“Curious. I was really looking for metaphysical books. But they don’t have any. That’s OK,” said Cindy, of Schaumburg.

WBBM: Are you going to buy something anyway?

“Yes, I have three children’s books at the counter.”

This is Amazon’s first neighborhood store. The other four are in shopping malls.

Erika VanDam, the owner of Roscoe Books, about a mile away, said it’s a sad irony, since Amazon is responsible for the death of so many independent book stores.

“The American Writer’s Museum has the distinction of being the first, and only, museum of its kind, dedicated to honoring and promoting American authors,” board member Leigh Conant said.

Conant added, “We anticipate that a minimum of 100,000 people will visit the AWM annually, experiencing great literature and its authors in a variety of ways.”

Among the galleries will be one called “Word Play.” It’ll have interactive tabletop consoles that encourage visitors to experiment with words and even make up words and meanings.

There’ll also be “The Mind of a Writer Gallery.” It will include a giant roll of paper suspended from the ceiling to an easel. Every day, museum staff will start a story by writing a single sentence on the paper and visitors will be able to add to it using their own writing flare.

The fragrance of yesterday took me to a place I never knew before a place well before my time the scent of that olde book was delicious

There was no challenge in its read for beyond those darken pages the words were fresh and clear

Age may have changed its pages but it had not tampered with its message

I took a book from my home library sat down and fell in love with Robert Browning…❤

We caught for a moment the powers at…
