Kindle owners do lots of things with their Kindles – some this you may already know how to do, but there may be a lot of you who never thought to do it. There is a discussion thread going on over at the Amazon site where members are posting some of the random things they do with their Kindles in addition to “just” reading books. I will be profiling some of these over the next few weeks – after all, part of the title line of this blog is supposed to be about Kindle tips vs. just a feature on free books!
Here’s one of the tips from the discussion board:
We went on a trip to Arizona and the Grand Canyon, and I downloaded all kinds of web info for points of interest, including directions. So, when we had a blank spot in our itinerary, I could pull up the info in the car, read it to my husband, decide if we were in vicinity and interested in the place and GO!
I also downloaded the Ranger talks about various observation points in the Canyon and played them while we stood at those points. DISCLAIMER:
- Those talks could have been listened to on cell phones, if you had service.
- My husband and son thought I was totally dorky at that point and wouldn’t stand near me while I played them….. I had to force them to listen by playing them in the car between stops!
