Adventures in Technology – A Kindle for your Computer
Those who know me or have followed me for very long know that I drag my feet when it comes to taking a technological step. I was one of those writers and readers who vowed I would never read anything but a bound book that I could hold in my hands and manually turn those paper pages. But, some of the newer authors aren’t always stocked in bookstores and the price of a Kindle book is often cheap enough that I don’t mind inching away from my top handful of authors to give a new writer a chance, and I was missing out on all the free Kindle books I saw being promoted. So, rather than jumping in with both feet, I decided to take baby steps and downloaded Amazon’s free Kindle App for my computer. I was amazed at how easy and enjoyable it was, and now free books were just a click away. Soon my confidence grew and I got a Kindle, which I now read almost exclusively. So, if you’re on the fence about digital books, the free Kindle App for your computer may be a way to test the waters (click on the icon or link to the right to get started).
