Christine Ricci What is "word-salady?"


message 9: by Kyle (new) - added it

Kyle Hajek All the sudden it just turned into gibberish for 5 or so pages. Like, not even coherent, just random words in the middle of sentences.

Oh. So, when are you getting a better translation?


message 6: by Kyle (new) - added it

Kyle Hajek Yeah. Sometimes when you get a computer scan of an old book it has some hiccups. First I need to get my kindle fixed, though, since it's kind of hard to read on half a screen.

You could...I don't know...borrow a copy from the library. Of course, that would be far too easy and logical. ;-)

Kyle Hajek Once you're hooked on the kindle it's really hard to go back. I think I need rehab...

please. It's a matter of the mind. Just suck it up and pick it up from the library. Think of it as an excuse to get out of the house.
