I am just getting to know my iPad as a reader to start. Yes, I am thrilled by its speed and so far I am not missing my iPhone that hopefully will find a more welcoming owner.
I love moving back and forth between email and internet and apps and photos, but at this moment, I am most excited by the reader as I enjoy the thrill of the ride through the last book of The Girl trilogy.
But I haven’t forgotten Ravitch and yesterday at the gym I took my Pad along to catch up. Finally, I can read and work up a sweat on the Ellipse at the gym. I was lost in Diane’s chapter on making a case for teacher unions. 30 minutes, 40…the 5 minute slow down signal and I was taken by surprise.
Honestly, I’ve tried reading paperbacks on an exercise maching and I thought I was just too clutzy to do both. But this device is perfect to multitasking in the real world even if you can’t do it yet on the Pad. I actually don’t miss that.
So I’m riding with Lisbeth in Sweden and grieving the “reforms” in education and I am enjoying it all with my latest tech toy.
