Years ago I said there needs to be a service where I can convert my print books into ebooks and audiobooks. Well, now it exists.

I want you to join me on Shelfie. Sign up with my promo code SCOK1349 and get a free ebook or audiobook – when you take a Shelfie.

Have you or someone you know purchased a point and shoot camera in the past year?

(Just some curious research. I'm defining a point and shoot as a pocket camera with a built in lens and not intended for manual controls in any way. Mobile phones are not included.)

+Steve H If you purchased a G12 with the intention of using its manual controls, then in regards to my question, it doesn't count as a point and shoot.

Affordable and top quality! Rich came to our house and explained the products and service efficiently, and clearly. He made it easy for anyone to understand. The install was fairly quick, maybe 3 hours total with one person. We have a small house so we didn't need much. But we paid for some add-ons which work great as well. I set off the alarm accidentally at first, and the call center was on top of it. So far so good, and we couldn't be happier with GPS!
