I want to wish you and your family a safe and happy holiday season, but I also want to let you know that you don’t need an eReader or Kindle to enjoy your favorite ebooks.
The idea for this post came to me recently when I was visiting the doctor’s, nothing serious, just the normal mutant flu (Tis the season to be snotty, Fa la la la la, la la la la.)
I was in the waiting room, reading a book on my phone, when another patient made a comment – something along the lines of – people today can’t put their phones down. He was shocked when I told him I was reading a book.
That’s when it occurred to me that many people don’t know that if you have a computer, smart phone or tablet you can purchase and read eBooks.
I’m not sure about Kobo or Barnes and Noble, but I do know that Amazon has a free app that allows you to download books to your device.
Personally, I love the convenience of always having a book with me. I don’t have to remember to charge another device. And I can enlarge the font to make it easier to read. Some people think that the small screen would be a problem, but to be honest, it’s not. I’m too involved in the book to notice.
So go ahead, treat yourself to a free app and ask for some ebooks for Christmas. You’ll be happy you did.
Happy Holidays from my family to yours.
