Chief, where to buy e-books for Kindle? How much usually is a book? I checked Amazon but couldn't find the titles I am interested in.

Amazon's the world's largest online bookstore, so if you can't find what you want there, you are unlikely to find it anywhere else :). The kindle can read PDF files well, and there are plenty of free ebooks if you know where to look. Project Gutenberg has over 42K high quality e-books, and they are all free.

Dear friends,

Due to some commitments, we have to postpone this Auction from this Wednesday 10am to next Monday 20 May 2013 10:00am.

For this Auction, we will make the following changes:

Instead of refunding participants, we will introduce a participation bonus. For the first successful bid you make in the Auction, you will receive 500KP$ immediately. You can choose to use this 500KP$ to continue bidding (and hopefully win the Auction), or keep it to build up your war chest for future Auctions.

Note that you must have enough KP$ in your account to make at least 1 successful bid. For example, if you have only 100KP$ and the bid price is already 100KP$, you will not be allowed to bid (because you need 100KP$ plus 10KP$ as the bid fee) and therefore lose your chance of earning 500KP$ for the Auction. The safest way is join the Auction early, while the bid price is still low.

This new participation bonus replaces the refund scheme that was mooted for the previous Auction. There will be no refunds of bid fees for this Auction.

Dear friends,

Due to the high demand for USS tickets, and the fact that the June holidays will be here soon, we have decided to change the prize for Auction 2013-6 from the Kindle Paperwhite to the 2A1C One-Day tickets for Universal Studios Singapore and one of the other 2 parks.

That means that for the upcoming 2 Auctions 2013-6 and 2013-7, we will be offering the same prizes. So there will be at least 2 happy families going to enjoy themselves in USS :) Yay!
