Any avid readers/Kindle owners in New Orleans, LA?

Posted on Mar 29, 2012 7:50:44 PM PDT
I have just purchased my kindle about a month ago and I love it. I mostly have classics and fairytales on mine. The only problem I had was I purchased the wrong one (regular kindle touch) instead of the 3G one. I don't have wi-fi in my building where I live.

Ava Daniel-Johnson: You might try calling Customer Service and explain you bought the wrong one, they might exchange it for the 3g, though you might have to pay the difference. I have the 3g+Wifi so that I could download books anywhere anytime when not in a Wifi hot spot. I also borrow books from the local Public Library which is also a nice option.

Ava: You also must have WiFi to download books from the Public Library.

Yes, but when you have a kindle, it comes wi-fi accessible, not always 3G. Library should be accessible if they have wi-fi.

I'm close, in Lafayette. Love locals like James Lee Burke and "Wading Home" - stories based here. Any suggestions?

Gift Card: I have found several Louisiana Mysteries. I just read Hot Blooded and Cold Blooded by Lisa Jackson, in that order. Both very good LA Mystery Thrillers. Other LA Mysteries I downloaded are Big Easy by Eric Wilder, Veiled Eyes by C.L. Bevill, Whispers of the Bayou by Mindy Starns Clark. I love James Lee Burke too, and read several of his books years ago. Sometimes I just enter Louisiana Mysteries in the Amazon Search box and several come up. I downloaded the 2 Lisa Jackson books from the Public Library in Jefferson Parish. That is one feature I enjoy, because they are FREE to borrow.

CCH, thanks for the info but I should have clarified that I found out that I did find out on day 2 that I purchased the wrong one and had to return it to get the 3G one. The lady at Amazon.com was very helpful with her suggestions because quite frankly I really don't like hanging out at places that have wifi. I do have to learn the library borrowing thing when I get a minute I haven't really read any louisiana mysteries but I guess I will. I need to get a list of stuff to read when I decide to take a vacation.
As for book borrowing, I need to see if I still have the JP card that I had when they let Orleans parish residents use it or if I can pay for one if I have to. I also had a card for another parish that I paid for a while back.

BTW, are any of you folks going to the concerts this weekend for the final four or jazz fest. BTW, the jazz fest cubes are out. They came out Tuesday.

Ava: I have an Orleans Public Library Card also, but found the Jefferson Parish Library had a much wider selection of eBooks for Kindle. So, I got my card at a library in Metairie, no cost for the card, it's FREE. I am able to borrow some Best Sellers and New Books Releases from the Library at no cost. I plan to go to Jazz Fest but not the Final Four Fest. I am currently out of town.

Oh okay. It's just that there are free concerts this weekend by the river. Don't care about the final four. BTW, the 2012 food list is out for jazz fest.

Hi all, my ebook, Bloody Murder Bloody Murder (Bloody Murder Mysteries) takes place in New Orleans and it's only $2.99. I consider James Lee Burke one of my inspirations.

CCH says:
Thanks Kate, I love James Lee Burke and I will add this one to my Wish List. Have you read Last Car To Elysian Fields by James Lee Burke?
Also, check out Cold Bloodied by Lisa Jackson another very good New Orleans Mystery/Thriller.

Last Car to Elysian Fields (Dave Robicheaux Mysteries)

CCH, I did read Last Car to Elysian Fields. It was riveting! I'll give Lisa Jackson a try.

CCH says:
Kate: Actually Hot Blooded is the 1st one and Cold Blooded is the 2nd book of the Series. Both are good, I borrowed them from the Library. Also, check out
Darkness on the Edge of Town (Laura Cardinal Series, Book 1) by J. Carson Black.

My novel BARONNE STREET is set in New Orleans. The Kindle edition is only $2.99.

When an ex-girlfriend is bludgeoned to death, New Orleans fixer Burleigh Drummond must rely on his Machiavellian skills to solve and avenge her murder.

I read Baronne Street last month, have it in my Kindle Library, and it's a good book. I enjoyed reading it!

Kate: I recently purchased Bloody Murder, have it in my Kindle Library. Plan to read it next. I enjoy reading books that take place in New Orleans or surrounding Parishes, specifically Mystery/Thriller, Suspense, and Legal Thrillers.

Kent thank you, I will find the book and buy it. CCH, no offense but I have been set off buy the price of the case, so I made my own with a real book and instructions on the internet.

Ava: That sounds pretty neat. Where did you find the instructions? How did it turn out?
