As techy as I am, as much as I love new gadgets and technology it has taken me sometime to embrace the e-reader. Probably because most of my book
reading listening is done on my iPhone through audiobooks. This is a great way for me to relax on my way to work and enjoy a good book. However I have yet to make the switch to an e-reader when I do purchase or check out a real paper book. Part of the reason is I like to read in the bath and that is no place for an e-reader.
However this past week I have converted two forms of reading to e-reader format. I recently was looking for some children’s healthy eating books and/or recipes and really didn’t want to wait for it to be delivered. When browsing through the books on Amazon I found that there is an app for my iPad for Kindle. This means I could purchase Kindle books without owning a Kindle. Maybe I’m a little behind in the times as I thought you had to have a Kindle and was having a hard time figuring out how to use my iPad for e-reading.
I purchased two books that night The Sneaky Chef (a book to get veggies and vitamins into kids meals without them knowing it) and No Whine with Dinner. Hoping that these books can help me figure out how to make some healthy meals for my children.
This weekend I converted my print magazine subscriptions to my iPad. This was very convenient when I wanted to read while getting my pedicure. I didn’t need to bring three magazines with me just my iPad. I know have all of my magazine subscriptions connected with my iPad. I will still get the printed copy but I can now download my magazine before it even arrives in the mail and have it with me anytime I have my iPad.
