I've heard nothing but good things about Angelfall. Didn't the author self publish??? Either way, as I was typing to say YES LOAN IT TO ME, I saw it for 2.99 on Amazon and just bought it.

So I can loan it out too, ya cheapskates. ;)

Kindle post (thought not about lending) - does anyone know of a way or an App that can be used to organize document/ books in a kindle? Kinda hard to find stuff when there's over a hundred documents to wade through.

Your Kindle should have come with a user guide already installed in it. Go to the user guide and look for 'setting up collections' or something like that. You can group your books into collections to make them more organized.

Jodie - thx for the tip, sadly it doesn't work for Kindle Fire. Boo Hoo on Amazon! I wanted to organize the million fics I've been puting in my kindle, but I think I'll have to settle for creating a document listing the stuff I want to read so at least I can remember the titles. Bungles!

Whaaa? That's weird. I just went through their user guide and it says you have to go on amazon.com and go into 'manage my kindle' in order to organize the content. I have no idea how much organizing they allow from there..

Oh, I know its weird, but watchagonnado? I have been googling like crazy hunting for ideas. About the ONLY useful idea is that you can mark documents (and books) as "favorites" and they'll show up in the "home" page if you scroll down.
I'm just going to track everything I drop into my kindle in a Word file, and mark unread stuff as "Favorite" so I can narrow down my searching when I'm reading.
Apparently Amazon is working on a fix but they're making no promises. :evil:

On my kindle I can, when I go to a title, click on the right arrow & it takes me to a "Add to collection" page and organize them that way. I don't have a Fire though...

I just finished reading Divergent and Insurgent (and then Divergent again ;) ) and I'm kind of obsessed with that series the same way I was obsessed with Twilight when I first read it.

I've checked out the author's twitter and facebook page. She flat out stated that there will not be a love triangle which makes me very happy! Tris and Four cannot be with other people. I'm not a huge fan of love triangles. I'm okay with them if I know going into a series that there is a triangle. But I hate it when it's unexpected and unwanted *cough*Twilight*cough*.

I'm not a pro at book discussions. I usually just wind up rambling about what I liked and what I hated. :lol: So I'll just start out with the most obvious question: Which faction would you be in?

Abnegation? - Not likely. I'm too vain and selfish. If I knew I had to walk up 20 flights of stairs, I would knock a bitch down to get to the elevators.

Candor? - While I am an honest person and a terrible liar, I wouldn't want all of my secrets revealed.

Erudite? - I love to read. But the books I read probably aren't the type of intellectual books they would read. :lol: I picture Erudite filled with a bunch of engineering-type people.

Dauntless? - Hale no! I don't like to face my fears. I like to shove them deep down inside of me and hope they don't resurface. Although if I knew Four was there waiting to fall in love with me, I'd risk it.

Amity? - This is probably the one I would come the closest to fitting in. I'm not a "Miss Suzie Sunshine" or anything. But I hate confrontation. I avoid it like the plague. And I'm usually pleasant to people even if they don't deserve it. As long as I know I could go back to my room and be moody, I'd be fine. Besides, how cool would it be to get injected with happy serum? It usually takes 3 glasses of wine to get me there and then you have to deal with the morning after headache. :lol:

In reality I'd probably wind up factionless. Which is okay because I like to drink and they seem like they always have alcohol. :lol:

According to this quiz https://www.facebook.com/DivergentSeries?sk=app_203946119628644 I'd be an Erudite, which I think is what I'd choose. I really like learning new things and firmly believe in the power of knowledge and an education. Though I think I'd be better off factionless because I am a little of a couple of them and, like you suggested since I love the booze. I don't think I could deal with the happy happy of the Amnity. I don't like people so they would drive me up the damn wall and I'd have to stab someone with a pitch fork. I, too, am to vain and selfish to in Abnegation. Again, I don't like people so why would I want to deny myself and be nice and give to others? No way. Candor, nope along with the selfish thing, I'd lie for my own good. Dauntless? No freakin way! I would run down old people and small children to get away from a tiny spider so no way I could bring myself to face that fear. If I were put into dauntless, my nickname would be Four Hundred Eighty Seven, and then I'd be thrown out anyway for not being able to master my fears.

:lol:

I loved that quiz! But it may not have been accurate because I chose the cheese first, simply because I like to eat and who doesn't like cheese?

I came up Dauntless and there's no freakin' way I'd choose that. I'd wind up like that poor little kid who failed the first part of initiation because he didn't even make it on the train. There's no way I could haul my fat ass into a moving train. And I have an intense fear of heights. I'm not jumping off a roof into a black hole.

So what do you think about Tobias' mother?

I totally chose the cheese because I love cheese too! Cheese is like my 3rd favorite thing in the world. Yes my fears and lack of physical agility would keep me out of Dauntless too. No way.

I think Tobias's mom is an untrustworthy beotch.

Yeah. I hated her the moment she told Tris she was temporary in Four's life. But what's her goal? I think I need to go back and reread Insurgent. I was reading it too fast because I just wanted to get to the end and make sure that Four and Tris didn't break up. If Marcus (aka - AHole #1) was trying to reveal the secret, what was Evelyn (aka - AHole #2) trying to accomplish? Was she trying to unite the factionless? I can't remember. And if so, did she want the secret revealed or did she want it kept quiet? Was her goal to have the factionless in control?

I just hated that both of Four's parents are such jackholes. She's manipulating him and he's allowing it because he's so desperate for a decent parent.

I'm hoping she decides to write the entire first book from his perspective (ala Midnight Sun - except completed) when she's finished with the last one. Although I would settle for a chapter here and there.
