“Educational bloggers blogging about things that need to be changed… This isn’t a post to read from start to finish.

The popularity of Android has been on a slow but steady rise. If you aren’t using an iPhone, then your options are pretty limited: Blackberry for the business folk, Android for the everyday iPhone equivalent, then Windows Phone for the rest. Of those 3 alternatives, Android is the most popular. So if you’re just starting off with an Android device, you probably have a few questions on how to proceed.

We have so many books that we have some of them shelved in the hallway outside our top floor apartment. One of our young junkies-about-town, who also is a bibliophile I guess, came in while we were riding our bikes a couple of weeks ago and stole two of them including a signed, limited edition Lawrence Block. We know it was him as he came back the same morning, after my wife noticed the theft, while I was doing bike maintenance and asked if it was a bookstore. He was thoroughly addled and very much at a loss. After I sent him packing, we went to the bookstore and told David, the proprietor at Mystery On Main Street about the incident, hoping he might at least get another copy of A Drop Of he Hard Stuff. He contacted ‘Larry’ whose e-mail reply was hilarious, “I wonder about the thief’s judgment” (we read it over David’s shoulder this afternoon). He then sent off another signed copy for my wife!
And who do you think passed us on the sidewalk as we were on our way back to the apartment from making our purchases? My wife leaned close and winked at me, and said, “Hide the book.”
The other book was her Nursing School psych text ( go figure)!
