Where does the time go? It seems as if it was just yesterday that I finished reading Your Scandalous Ways. Anyway, this is a reminder to those who are still in the game – next Wednesday, March 18 is our next challenge day. The theme for this month is to read a historical mystery, romance or fiction title of your choice. If you don’t care for historicals, just pick a book, read it and review it on March 18.
Kindle App on iPhone/iTouch
Meanwhile, I am reading a mystery bought from the Kindle store. In Amazon’s quest for ebook domination, they have opened up their format to the iPhone/iTouch crowd. I get to enjoy those nice hardcover prices without actually handling this aesthetically challenging device. At night is when I do the majority of my reading so, while Stanza is my preferred app of choice for my iPhone, I can use the Kindle app to read ebooks that otherwise have remained elusive or missing from other etailers.
As you can see from the pic, there aren’t very many choices to manipulate this ebook. I can increase/decrease the font, create bookmarks on the fly while it keeps my place in the book but that’s essentially it. Someone mentioned taking notes – how? Purchasing the Kindle ebook is outside this app’s capability, too. I must purchase it on my desktop or on my iPhone and then it is sent to my iPhone once the app is opened. What I really dislike is the lack of covers on the home page. What gives Amazon? Anyway, Stanza is still my number one choice for my late night reading. I guess I shouldn’t complain, after all it is a FREE app that could stand a few more updates.
