Storing eBooks In Google Play Books
Ok, I admit it. I'm probably way behind the times on this one, but I found it recently and thought it was crazy cool. I read eBooks, you read eBooks, we all read eBooks from time to time. If you're like me you've ended up in a situation where you have a few in the Amazon Kindle app, a few more in Box, a few more in DropBox, and several more scattered to the winds. I've been frustrated by this, and even more so by the fact that generally speaking I live in Google's ecosystem. One of the primary things I've been unable to do, however, is keep all my eBooks in the one location that I want to use them. Well, at some point along the way (when, I've no idea) Google solved that very problem. They enabled uploading of your very own eBooks in to Google Play Books so that you can have your own existing eBook collection treated just like any other eBooks you happen to have purchased through Google Play. It looks like only EPUB and PDF are supported...Of course, it's entirely possible that those just happen to be the only formats I have that are supported...but I've been periodically moving items from my collection that I want to read right up there in to my Google Play Books account. It's fairly easy, just go to Play.Google.Com/Books, select My Books, and over there by that little gear icon click Upload Files. It works basically the same from the Android app. Now, if only they'd do something like that for Google Play Movies I might be able to get rid of Plex...
Equilibrium ArmageddonSo, here I am, minding my own business and getting ready to do a little kitchen cleaning. I pop open Google Play Music, and I'm informed that Equilibrium has a new album. If you know them, you know them. Technical, oddly upbeat German folk death metal. So far, the album is pretty damn good. I'll have to give it a few more rounds, though, to really get a feel for what's going on here. Check it out.
The Amazon links go through my affiliate account, and any purchases will give me a little taste that will help to motivate me to keep putting out content.
This is turning out to be a harder post than I thought. First, I started the post. Then I edited it on my phone. Then I completed it on my Chromebook. Then I opened blogger on my phone which happened to have a previous incomplete version which fucking overwrote the completed one. Then a partial page load stuck the content of the partial post in to this post, and just totally slaughtered everything. Oh, well. Back to the drawing board. I’ll try to reproduce this as close to the original as possible. Lesson learned. Blogger app and Blogger site do not play nicely together.
So, back to the reason for this post in the first place. I wrote a little post on using the Pomodoro Technique, and part of the lead-in had to do with why I use it and how it works out for me, and that touches on the fact that I’m a professional adult with ADHD. That sent me off on a train of thought ranting on about some irritating bullshit that I’ve seen floating around about the “benefits” of ADHD and I realized th…
