    I had the Narnia series read to me as a kid, so I had fond memories of them. I tried rereading them to my kids maybe 10 years ago, and I had trouble getting through the second book.

    Can't you just bookmark and jump?

    I could, but it's still annoying: Tap once to bring up the header menu, another tap to load the full menu, tap "View Notes & Marks" to bring up bookmarks, and then a fourth and final tap to select my map bookmark (assuming I don't have more bookmarks I need to scroll through.) And then it's two taps to get back to my place in the book (header + back). And with e-ink there's always that ever-so-slight delay to the touch controls and the screen drawing, so it always feels that much slower.

    Serious question Abby old cat - how do you check the maps when you're earbooking?

    Serious answer: i mostly ignore them. If i'm deeply curious i'll look at the map when i have time... they're usually attached as .pdfs to earbooks.... but i've never been the kind of fantasy/sf fan who needs to track events on a map.

    Using maps in an ebook is seriously obnoxious as well (especially on an actual e-ink reader where I can't, like, have another tab open or something.) Priory has two maps, but they're basically just a high-level EAST and WEST map, and I fortunately found them to be perfectly unnecessary.

    Finished Samantha Shannon's The Priory of the Orange Tree last night. So good! A huge, epic standalone fantasy. Global scope, conflicting religions, a little magic, a little romance, two kinds of dragons (Eastern-style and Western-style!) My only knock against it is that the climax felt fairly rushed, and thereby rather, well, anticlimactic. But the ending overall was fine. The author really could have milked this into a series, and on the one hand I'm glad (and impressed!) she didn't, but at the same time I kinda wish there was more...

    I've been moving slowly through it, not quite finished. My schedule is terrible this semester, but I should finish this week. I'll let you know when, but I have been enjoying it throughout.

    Haha, well I'm glad my Nthusiam got you back into it! I'll admit that I never went so far as to create my own levels and such, but I still loved the game. When I get a chance I'll check out your levels. How difficult would you say they are? Did you cram 40 laser enemies into one level? *shudder*

    Kruppe thanks you profusely for your kind words. If only Kruppe's rare gift was as useful as (say) a hogs talent for sniffing out and locating rare truffles.
    Kruppe is also delighted to inform you that he too resides in the land of 10,000 lakes. Stillwater, to be precise.
    Yet more serendipitous news: Good Kruppe is also a child of October. The 23rd day of that delicious m
