Recommend books on boxing for non-readers.

My nephew is 20. He's starting college again. He doesn't read, so his essays are poorly written. The information is in there, but it is poorly structured, Capital letters appear for no Apparent reason, etc. If he read anything, ever, his writing would improve. But he won't. He likes boxing. Can anyone recommend a boxing book which would entertain him and is simple enough for him to understand ?

Serious Problem with the New Google Reader

Is there a way to post stand-alone websites to the New Google Reader? I used to do it with a tool in my bookmarks toolbar called "Note in Reader", but that no longer works. I simply don't see how to do it. I really like to keep a web-file of my favorite articles. Can I still do it in Google Reader? I hate to go to an alternate source to create a webfile, but if you have a suggestion, and I could consider that too, much as I hate to.

Anyway to remove all stars from starred Google Reader items?

I want to remove all of the stars from my Google Reader starred items, so that I can start from scratch with my starred items. Is there any way to do this without doing it one by one? My searches seem to prove that this is a desired feature but not one that can be done, but I figured if there was a group that could either (a) help or (b) find me a shortcut solution, this would be it.

US MeFite moving to London asks the eternal question: Kindle or Nook?

I am in the process of preparing to move to London for the next four years to attend college. As I have sold off a large portion of my beloved library, I don't want to find myself doing the same exercise in 4.5 years time when I return to the US. Coming late to the ebook reader dance, I ask you which of these two will be the better choice in light of current capabilities (and in addition to the fact that I want a reader to buy and read books, extras do not figure into the equation) - the Kindle or the Nook?

Can Acrobat Reader 5.0 and Acrobat Pro 7.0 play nice?

Acrobat Reader 5.0 and Acrobat Pro 7.0: can they both work at once? I just installed Acrobat Pro 7.0 on Windows XP, and now it's the default for viewing PDFs. Not only that, but even when I try to open AcroRd32.exe in the Acrobat 5.0 folder, it instead opens up Acrobat.exe from the 7.0 install. I need 7.0 for professional use, but 5.0 is so much faster for all of my other PDF-viewing needs. Is there any way that I can keep using 5.0 while 7.0 is installed? [more inside]
