Then what does one do? … Well, if one is moi, and A.D.D.-afflicted, one reads good book and forgets about ink cartridges for a while. I got hooked on the Twilight series and fell in love with Edward Cullen, the eternal seventeen-year-old. I bought the first two books in the series via eBaY auction and paid less than $10 each including shipping. I couldn’t wait for shipment of the final two books and bought PDFs instead, also via eBaY. These were presumably scanned, because there are glitches: The word I’ll is rendered HI on the scanned copies.
And that means you have to factor $9.95 per month in with the eBaY listing fees and seller fees, which are conveniently laid out for you in a document that makes the U.S. Code look like a Little Golden Book.

Willie Mays, 77, who played most of his career with the New York and San Francisco Giants, may be the greatest all-around baseball player of all time. Nicknamed “the Say-Hey Kid,” he is the godfather of tarnished home-run hero Barry Bonds.
I am thrilled to have lived to see an African American president of the U.S. I am 61 years old. When I was growing up, even in Nebraska segregation was the status quo if not the law. I was a new mom in the late sixties, when Omaha experienced race riots in the stifling heat of two consecutive summers.
Tonya is clearly an enterprising young woman (at least she looks young in her photo) who intends to leave no tern unstoned, as we used to say back in the sixties, though Tonya is focused on marketing and the Flower Children were focused on… um… let me get back to you.
