Contrary to pop psychology there aren’t “7 Secrets To Success” … there are 7 thousand. All authors know this, but it just does not sell books so screw it – “seven it is,” they agreed.
Borders bookstore in fact attempted to sell a book called “The Seven Thousand Secrets To Accomplishment” final year just as an experiment. Confident adequate, folks burned the stores down in protest of reality. The “Save The Trees” individuals showed up to protest as nicely. Apparently the books have been about 8,600 pages every single, and that was over their limit. Unfortunately for them they screwed up and unwittingly slayed the final tree on earth with their signs.
Now Borders is out of enterprise. And there is no far more paper. Anywhere. Therefore … the Kindle.

“Midgets are not supposed to be in the air,” I groan.
Then he proceeds to let everything fall, but of course he catches it all in his pocket. A single pocket.
“French individuals are freaking Remarkable!” I internally think but externally say loudly.
“Thank you,” the juggler said. Then he levitated off stage.
What is my point? Just this …
French men and women are freaking Wonderful!
But it is also this …
