Do you shop online for books? - The Rancho Commons — LiveJournal
Note to self: no whining, no slacking
Do you shop online for books?
If you do, then you will find this nifty little Firefox Add-on useful. It's called Book Burro. Here's the deal.

Go here: to Book Burro and install the add-on. Restart your FF browser. Now when you search for a book, say Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game at a website, Book Burro will pop up a small, see through bar. If you click on the bar, this is what you will see.

Note it shows you local libraries in your area that have this book, as well as the price of several online booksellers for you to compare with and find the best price.

Important Note: Book Burro doesn't pop up until you actually click onto an individual book's page. If you are on a search page (like on Amazon.com or BN.com) showing multiple books, it will not show up until you select a single book.

Don't forget that Ender's Game is one in a series of books by Orson Scott Card! It was in the top 3 books I have ever read, and quite possibly it was my favorite.

When we bought our Honda Pilot, we went straight to Circuit City and had a DVD player installed in the back. It uses headphones. Talk about QUIET!!

Re: glad you like it

Excellent! I DO like it, as you can tell. Strong work.

As payment, I offer this as a response to your August 19th LJ entry. I think that's a grass spider not a hobo spider. If that helps at all. I also HATE spiders.
