So That's What This Hunger Games Thing Is

Okay, they're "young adult" novels, but that doesn't actually require the writing to be eye-gougingly awful. I'll stick with Terry Pratchett or Garth Nix, thanks all the same.

2 Apparently yes.  You can turn it off, but it sounds like its on by default.

3 I just looked around and I can't find anything like that. But that doesn't prove anything. It's obviously the kind of thing they don't want me to find easily.

4 From Slashdot, Home -> Settings -> Popular Highlights -> Turn Off.

5 On my Kindle Fire, there isn't any "Popular Highlights" choice in "Settings". Probably that was in the earlier versions of the Kindle.

6 Yeah, on the Fire it's likely completely different.

7 I actually loved reading Garth Nix back when I was in sixth grade. Those were the days.

8 His Old Kingdom series (Sabriel / Lirael / Abhorsen) is particularly good.
