Bible in 90 Days: Day 3 – iPad-ding My Way Through

3 days down, 87 to go!  I’m feeling good, confident and not at all daunted at the 12-page a day approach.  I’m feeling especially giddy in using my iPad to read through the 90 day challenge.  I have two e-reader apps downloaded so far: Apple’s iBooks and Amazon’s Kindle.  I’m using Kindle to read the B90 Bible because Apple didn’t sell it on the iTunes store (their loss).

How do I love the iPad as an e-reader?  Let me count the ways:

  1. The iPad is so thin and portable that I can take it with me everywhere (by purse, by tote, by handled neoprene case).  And I do.
  2. I can highlight, bookmark and make as many notes as I want.
  3. I can carry hundreds of books with me at a time, although on average I only read 2-3 at a time.
  4. Like most e-readers, I can adjust the font to a comfortable size which decreases eye fatigue.
  5. I no longer need to dedicate precious bookshelf space to my favorite books because I can keep them on my e-reader app forever and ever.
  6. The Pièce de Résistance: unlike the Amazon Kindle or other e-readers, the iPad has gorgeous back light for reading in the dark.  My husband can happily sleep uninterrupted in total darkness  while I happily read in bed with my awesome back light.

These are just a few bennies to owning an iPad but there are many others all of which will have to wait for a future blog posting.

Looking forward to Day4 of 90!

    Ah my favorite part of the kindle is that i can instanly look up a word without having to get out of bed and lug over the dictionary! Maybe that is because I don’t know what so many words mean!

      Hmmm…can’t do that on the Kindle app yet but iBooks can. Very nice feature for those that need it (not me, of course). :-p
