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 an older 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 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 to my e-Ink Kindle. 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!
