The boy who knew too much: a child prodigy

This is the true story of scientific child prodigy, and former baby genius, Ainan Celeste Cawley, written by his father. It is the true story, too, of his gifted brothers and of all the Cawley family. I write also of child prodigy and genius in general: what it is, and how it is so often neglected in the modern world. As a society, we so often fail those we should most hope to see succeed: our gifted children and the gifted adults they become. Site Copyright: Valentine Cawley, 2006 +

Publishing my blog on Kindle, Amazon.

Yesterday, I published my blog feed on Kindle, Amazon. As most of you will know, Kindle is an e-reader, that allows one to read books, on the go and to store a library of, I hear, up to 3,500 books in one slim, lightweight electronic device. It also, interestingly enough, allows bloggers, like myself, to syndicate their blog content so that it is automatically updated on Kindles, to be read.

Now, not all countries allow for the reception of blogs on Kindles. I know Malaysia doesn't (since Amazon won't display its blogs to me, if I give my location as "Asia and Pacific"). Thus, this comment does not, at this time, apply to everyone. However, for those of you in countries where Amazon is distributing blogs, perhaps you might like to consider subscribing to mine, on your Kindle.

It is relatively easy to do so, if you have a Kindle. Just go to my blog's page on Amazon (new, freshly minted...) at:

http://www.amazon.com/Boy-Who-Knew-Too-Much/dp/B0042P5LEE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&m=AG56TWVU5XWC2&s=digital-text&qid=1284603792&sr=8-1

There you will see a presently very brief description of my blog (which I suppose needs to be enhanced) and a screenshot of its first page. To get the blog to your Kindle and have it update wirelessly through "Whispernet", just click on the right hand side where it says "1-click" and you will have my blog feed downloaded onto your Kindle for easy reading, wherever you are.

I would much appreciate it, if you could let your friends know, who might have Kindles, that my blog is on Kindle and can be subscribed to. Those of you who are regular readers could really do me a big favour in return for all the reading you have, I trust enjoyed, over the years: please go to my Kindle blog page and write a review of what you like about my blog. If you are a regular reader, you will have a much better idea of what there is to enjoy and appreciate on my blog - so you are in a very good position to provide a good, thoughtful review. So, please, if you have been reading for a while and commenting on my blog - such as Slawek, Christina, Louis, Anthony...and many others...please take a moment to write a review on Kindle, with your thoughts and feelings on what my blog has to offer readers.

It may just be me - but I think the fact that I like to write, should make reading my blog, something others might like to read: my enthusiasm for the written word, should communicate with those who appreciate the written word. At least, that is my hope and belief. So, if you like to read my blog - please let others know, on my Kindle blog page.

Your kind assistance in this request is much appreciated - and I am very grateful, in advance, to any of you who are good enough to take a moment to write a review of my blog, on Kindle. Thank you so much.

The reason I ask, should be clear to anyone who understands readers: without a review, very few people will subscribe, since they won't "jump in" without knowing how others feel about the water...so help if you can. Thanks.

An afterthought:

After writing this, I realized something: you don't need a Kindle to read Kindle books or blogs. All you need is one of a range of modern electronic goodies: such as an iPhone, or an iPad etc. You see Kindle provides apps that allow the reading of its books and blogs across various other platforms...so if your friends have an iPhone (and many people do) or an iPad, then I understand they can read Kindle blogs and books on them.

(If you would like to learn more of Ainan Celeste Cawley, 10, or his gifted brothers, Fintan, 6 and Tiarnan, 4, this month, please go to:

I also write of gifted education, child prodigy, child genius, adult genius, savant, megasavant, HELP University College, the Irish, the Malays, Singapore, Malaysia, IQ, intelligence and creativity.

You can get my blog on your Kindle, for easy reading, wherever you are, by going to:

http://www.amazon.com/Boy-Who-Knew-Too-Much/dp/B0042P5LEE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&m=AG56TWVU5XWC2&s=digital-text&qid=1284603792&sr=8-1

Please let all your fellow Kindlers know about my blog availability - and if you know my blog well enough, please be so kind as to write a thoughtful review of what you like about it. Thanks.

I think that you don't even need an iphone or ipad--I have a free Kindle Application on my laptop that allows me to download all Kindle items to my PC.
