Download Super Cool Pet Books on Amazon's Wireless Reader Kindle 2


Amazon's new wireless reader the Kindle 2 recently entered our lives. Never again to worry about being caught without a book! If you love to read, this is a must-have. The Kindle 2 is user-friendly and about the size of a paperback, thinner than most magazines. For a review, Engadget and DVICE say it well.

One of the first books we downloaded here at Super Cool Pets is Animals Make Us Human: Creating the Best Life for Animals by Temple Grandin and Catherine Johnson. The authors focus on the emotional systems that human and animals share. This fascinating book "challenges assumptions about what makes animals happy".

For those who haven't paid much attention to the Kindle 2, download in less than 60 seconds from a library of over 240,000 books, subscribe to newspapers, blogs, magazines and listen to music. Read your Kindle anywhere for days without charging -- outdoors in the park or on the beach, on the train, plane, in the car or lounge at home.

Touch Pets Dogs For iPhone -- Adopt, Nurture and Play with Your Virtual Puppies

Another reason to love your iPhone. A socially-networked virtual pet game is in development exclusively for iPhone and iPod Touch. Publisher ngmoco and virtual pet genre pioneer Andrew Stern of Stumptown Game Machine have announced the spring 2009 release of Touch Pets Dogs for the iPhone.

In Touch Pets Dogs, players adopt, nurture and play with their virtual puppies through one-on-one touch screen interaction or on play dates with other players' dogs from around the world. The ambitious Touch Pets social network, embedded within the game, allows owners and dogs alike to build relationships with other players and their Touch Pets. Puppies' social lives continue to evolve whether their owners are logged into the game or not, and the results are broadcast for the world to see on the Touch Pets social network dog feed.

Players can also personalize their 3-D pups with new clothing, accessories, toys, grooming tools and other doggie gear. With five different dog breeds to choose from, Touch Pets can be trained to fetch, catch and do tricks using a variety of toys, touch commands and accelerometer inputs. Puppies can grow in five exciting careers: Crime-fighting, Science, Rescue, Fashion and Political tracks. The right training can prepare a Touch Pet for dozens of career missions where it can earn special reward items and mission postcards that further define its unique identity -- on and off the dog feed.
In addition to the predictable touch interaction with an adorable cartoon puppy, the game features advanced AI simulation and social networking features that make it a more interesting proposition.
