Seriously folks, let’s all give reading a book on an iPhone a try. I mean it’s free and eBooks and digital publishing aren’t going away. So, just try it. You don’t have to like it. In fact, you may not. Which is fine. But at least you’ll know.
So, if you have an iPhone, just do this:
1. Download the Amazon Kindle app, from the App Store. It’s free.
2. Find a free book to download, I recommend starting with fiction. I read about five non-fiction books for every one fiction. But I have found that it’s easier to read on the small screen if the book is written to pull you along, rather than making you stop, think, take notes, etc. So for my non-fiction books I’m still a traditional pBook kinda guy. (I’m reading The Templar Legacy. Not exactly five-star, but it is fiction and free as of right now).
And I know I do my fair share of not-so-fond of Amazon posting, but these steps are quick and painless. There are a ton of other eReading options as well. Here is a fantastic post about reading books on the iPhone. All of the apps mentioned in that post are worth your time to download and check out!
Let me know what you think, if you give it a go.
One thought on “Just try it — Reading on an iPhone”
I’ve been reading “The Lost Symbol” on my iPhone and it’s been quite comfortable. Thanks for the mention of “The Templar Legacy”, I’m always looking for free Kindle Books.
