Have you heard of "pedal error"? That's the term automakers use to explain certain accidents where someone steps on the gas instead of the brake.
Well, it seems many of us experience "button error" with our Kindle Touch readers. As KB member SeymourKopath puts it, "Have you every done this: sit down to read your Kindle Touch and press the Home button to wake it up! There are only two

In our Book Corner, KB member Cindy416 is finishing Vince Flynn's Memorial Day and plans to start Act of Treason, another Vince Flynn novel. Cindy has read nine of Flynn's books in the past month - and they're about 450 pages each! She reads them on her treadmill and advises that "If you like political thrillers,
you'll probably love these books... Reading these books is like eating potato chips.....can't eat/read just one."
