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: 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.

Skype is an application that offers voice and video calls over the internet (so it’s assumed you have an internet connection before using it). The video calling portion of the application is FREEEEEEE! The first thing you need is the Skype application. Go to www.skype.com and download it to your computer. It’s FREEEEEEE! During the installation process you’ll be asked to create a Skype account in which you will select a Skype ID and password. The Skype ID doesn’t have to be your real name but it does make it easier for friends and family to find you if it is. My Skype ID is irene.taschek. The second thing you’ll need in order to fully use the … Continue reading
