ANNA JUST GOT A NEW KINDLE AND SOMETHING IS TERRIBLY WRONG! IS HER NEW KINDLE POSSESSED?
Are they out there, hovering on the Whispernet, waiting to get in on an unwanted download? That’s the troubling question that haunts Anna, a senior citizen separated from her family in an assisted living facility, when she orders a Kindle, and strange things start to happen. Is the cause a voodoo spell put on the Kindle by the peculiar Haitian attendant? Is it an electronic alteration caused by a weird sci-fi book download? Is it an alien presence known as Ambient Intelligence (AmI) that means her harm? Or, as everyone tries to convince her, is the problem just a technical glitch in her Kindle.
It takes her growing romantic relationship with a handsome resident and the close tie between Anna and her 14-year-old grandson to sort it all out. If you’ve got a Kindle, don’t miss this lighthearted mystery from Myra Concannon.
"Along with the thoroughly enjoyable 'solve the mystery' aspect of AMI, one of the things I love about this book is that it shows how valuable and useful the new Kindle eReader can be for senior citizens. With the Kindle, the entire book world becomes available to them. If you know of or are responsible for a home bound, assisted living, or nursing home senior citizen, consider getting him or her a Kindle. The senior will be forever grateful for your thoughtfulness."
AMAZON.com FIVE STAR RAVE REVIEW FOR AMI
5.0 out of 5 stars October 12, 2012 By R. Russell Amazon Verified Purchase:
"This was the first book I purchased for my (then) new Kindle 2 and I LOVED it!! Anna (the main character) doesn't want to live in an Assisted Living Facility and give up her home and independence. I found her to be very real in her anger, confusion, anxieties, techno-phobia and a grudging willingness to try something new -- a Kindle. Her daughter, son-in-law and grandson are very well done -- you KNOW these people. How AmI works with Anna and makes her aware of what's going on around her is breath-taking -- the suspense builds slowly, but surely -- and the ending is perfect. If you're looking for a book with an interesting concept, 'real' people and good tension, purchase AmI. Then sit back, put your feet up and enjoy the ride!"

Did you really place that order…or is it AmI?
