Every now and then I like to share about one of the tools that I have found very helpful to me in my day-to-day journey of serving our Creator! Tools make life easier, more enjoyable and often entertaining! I have been blessed with some great tools that enable me to be more effective at what I do and today’s tool is another one of my favorites, which I use everyday!
John Maxwell and Zig Ziglar are two of the mentors that I have had as a part of my life for a long time. Both of these gentleman through the years have stressed the importance of reading and how it impacts and influences our leading. This is why many years ago, I dedicated myself to being a reader. I read everyday and one of the tools that helps me to read better is my Amazon Kindle!
The Amazon Kindle is a book reader. You can purchase books online or even through the reader and they are downloaded automatically to your device. As you read you can type in notes about thoughts you have as you are reading, you can highlight passages that you want to remember and you can share through social media with others about what you are reading.
Kindle also allows me to download apps for my phone, iPad and computer that allow me to also read the very same books on those devices. Wherever I leave off reading is saved and when I open the book on any of my devices, it takes me right back to where I left off.
Books generally run around $9.99, and there is a continuously changing library of free books available for download. You could literally read for the rest of your life on this device and it would not have to cost you a dime!
If you are interested in a Kindle, they have come down in price and start at around $79 and go up to around $199 for a full-blown color tablet type! You don’t have to have a Kindle if you already have a digital tablet of some kind, because you can download the Kindle Reading Application and read on pretty much any device for free! I personally like the Kindle at times, because the screen on the basic Kindle is very friendly to outside lighting without a glare, which I sometimes have to fight on my other devices.
I really appreciate you taking the time to read my blog and wanted to share a free book that you can get your hands on. I noticed the other day that a book I received for free and read last year is free once again. It’s a great book, fun to read and will make you think. I encourage you to check this out: “Imaginary Jesus!”
I hope this post is helpful and a blessing and remember: If there is anything that I can do to serve you and help make life better, then I sure would love to give it a try – just holla! Blessings!
