Sweet New Toy

Well last week I decided to waste a couple bucks on one of those No Chance in Hell Arcade games were you can win cool stuff like GPS units, Nintendo 3DS's, etc.... The one I was playing had an Amazon Kindle Fire HD, barely hanging on. Ended up hitting the string just right (not with the blade that cuts it) and the Kindle dropped, I am guessing that due to the weight of the Kindle and the shock of hitting the string created just the right combination of force to cause the already weakened string to finally fail.

Currently have all my ATZ rule books on it, along with some Kindle books I bought, most based off of Vampifans reviews, and of course a copy of Max Brooks Zombie Survival Guide & World War Z (already have the hard copies of both).  Now I do have some classics such as HP Lovecrafts complete works, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's complete works of Sherlock Holmes, and some Jules Verne (currently rereading Mysterious Island by Verne, last time I read it was about 15 years ago in school).

Books Currently purchased that are Zombie related:

Can You Survive the Zombie Apocalypse by Max Brallier
As The World Dies Trilogy by Rhiannon Fater
As the World Dies Untold Tales Trilogy by Rhiannon Fater
The Last Bastion of the Living by Rhiannon Fater
LZR-1143 Perspective and LZR-1143: Within by Brian James (both were free zombie books so thought I would check them out)
World War Z and Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks
Dead and Moaning in Las Vegas by 

I also bought (some such as the Jules Verne books were free)
The Mysterious Island, Around the World in 80 Days, From the Earth to the Moon: and Round the Moon all by Jules Verne
Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas
The Complete Collection of HP Lovecraft
The complete collection of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

The games I currently have on it are
Disney's Wheres my Perry (had a free download code for it so dont judge me)
a couple hidden object adventure games
and paper toss (you throw a wad of paper at the waste basket, though you have a fan that blows at different speeds each throw that will affect your aim)

I will be downloading the various rules for the Munchkin card games that I own (Zombies, Apocalypse, Star Munchkin and regular Munchkin), along with Zombie Fluxx, Zombies!!! the Game, etc...


  1. Well done on the Kindle Doug,
    Can't recall the amount I've wasted on those machines, I'm overdue a win lol

  2. Well done on getting your Kindle, there are many, many free e-books on line and quite a few from Amazon that cost nothing too.

  3. I am really loving the Kindle, it is allowing me to reread books (classics) that I remember reading back in school. Plus I can load the kindle up with books and take the library with me anywhere I go and it weighs nothing, where as a nice selection of books would weigh a lot more.

    As for the free books, I am looking into them. I have downloaded a handful of "classics" such as the Jules Verne books through the Amazon Store that are free.

  4. Well done on the win, I just have a standard kindle but love it lots vast choice of classics to choose from as well.

    Check out Edgar Rice Burroughs Mars series good reads all of them and free!

    Another source for free books.
