The Secret You Need to Know About Ebooks
This page is gone and the Pinboard archived version isn't working, but I found what it must have been about here:

Here's the text of that page in case it disappears:
"Earlier this year, the price on the blockbuster book, The Girl on the Train, was slashed from $11.99 to $1.99 for one day only.

Previously, Gone Girl was discounted from $9.99 to $2.99, and The Da Vinci Code was given away for free for one week. In all three cases, the discounts were only available for the ebook version.

Most people were completely unaware of these huge deals.

A select group of readers, however, had the inside scoop on all these deals and more. They were using BookBub, a daily email that alerts readers to free and deeply discounted ebooks that are available for a limited time.

Over 5 million people have signed up for BookBub’s free service. Readers sign up with just an email address, and then select their favorite genres. Each day, BookBub sends an email with free and discounted bestselling ebooks in the selected genres. Just click, download, and read on any device: Kindle, Nook, iPad, iPhone, Droid, & more.

From romance to mystery, cookbooks to non-fiction, and literary to historical fiction there are more than 20 categories to choose from to customize your email. Each title is hand selected by BookBub’s editorial team to ensure the highest quality – they do the work for you. In addition, each book is at least 75% off, and many are free, which makes it extremely low risk to try new authors and genres.

“It’s the Groupon of books,” Dominique Raccah, the publisher of Sourcebooks, told The New York Times about deal sites like BookBub. “For the consumer, it’s new, it’s interesting. It’s a deal and there isn’t much risk. And it works.”

Book lovers have now become practically obsessed with BookBub. In many cases, they’ve downloaded hundreds of books and saved hundreds of dollars using the service.

“I now have more books than I can read in a lifetime,” said Suzie Miller of Auburn, WA. She said she has downloaded more than 350 free ebooks using the service.

To see today’s ebook deals, go to www.bookbub.com."

Resistance Training For Your 'Willpower' Muscles : NPR
"Decision-making taps into the same energy reserves as self-control." - This could explain why we see the rich and powerful (usually men, but oftentimes Hollywood starlets) making bad decisions: They spend their whole day making touch decisions about career, business, money, etc... and when temptation comes in the form of infidelity, drugs, etc... Their willpower is depleted.

I think this is the site that Joe got all those audiobooks from. The page has been taken down, but I have a feeling it just moved to a different URL (i.e. 1876.html instead of 1776.html)

Vook - Marshmallow Test
filmmaking-technique = awesome use of music/sound effects to go with the theme of waiting. . . does not use overplayed themes of ticking clock. I would have used a bass drum in a rhythm similar to this: x...... x.x.............x............x...x.........x....x.......
rather than their bass line -- but the shaker they use is a perfect addition.
