BOOKS

There are times when we hurry up to get somewhere, only to find out that we have to wait. It doesn’t matter if it’s at the Doctor’s office or simply waiting for a friend to arrive for lunch, busy productive folks don’t like the “down time”.

So, you pull out your cell phone, check messages and email, maybe return a call or two. You might even surf the web a bit, but all to soon you are back into that down time, twiddling your thumbs place  again, all too soon.

Pull out your Kindle, you say ? Sure, a good solution, however a kindle is just too big for most pockets, or even many purses, for that matter.

Enter the smart phone. I have downloaded Kindle’s free software onto our PC and my cell phone. This means being to be able to have a good book on hand at a moments notice.  It is so cool to flip through pages of an old classic like Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Treasure Island”, that was downloaded for free, while waiting for the dental tech to say, “we are ready for you now”.

Here is a look at our set up:

Click on the photo for a larger view. You might note that the android main operating system on the cell phone is giving a slightly different view than the windows Main Operating System on the laptop.

He, he, the larger view will also show that the computer screen needs cleaning and smears on the phone screen from tapping and dragging. Tech stuff, ain’t it cool !
