Desiree Holt: What’s App?
Wednesday, December 15th, 2021

The latest thing to hit the reading world is Apps, where you can buy and read books in bite-size pieces. Twelve hundred to fifteen hundred words at a bite. And why is this good? Because if you are waiting in line for food, or riding in an Uber, or even on a bus, sometimes, a whole chapter is too much and you have to shut down before you finish. Bummer!

There are apps for all purposes: entertainment, research, education—all in bite-size chunks that make it quick and easy to absorb.

Also, you can quickly adjust the font and size of the book’s text which makes reading easier and more convenient. And when people can comfortably adjust these things, they end up reading more often, and therefore, read more books.

For those of us that have always associated reading with school and textbooks, reading books on tablets and our phones can actually be pretty fun nowadays. Perhaps it is still rather difficult to believe, but that’s the truth—your perception is playing tricks on you. While one of the greatest advantages of reading on a mobile device is the convenience of having a huge portable library, there are many more features that the reading app and its counterparts bring to the table that can make your reading experience fun.

Probably, the number one reason people love their reading apps is convenience. They are able to carry their entire library on one lightweight smartphone or tablet. This is especially appreciated by those who live in small spaces or who just don’t have room for one more bookcase and have a sky-high pile of books. How about travelers? A reading app saves on valuable suitcase space and is lightweight and easy to tote around. It also solves the problem that many readers run into. Have you ever chosen a selection of books to take with you on vacation only to find when you get there you’ve lost interest in all of them? With a reading app, you can simply choose another. Some will even let you download books from other sources.

Another is accessibility. If you have vision or hearing difficulties, the ability to change and increase the font size or have your book read to you can make reading a pleasure again. Book reading apps are accessible on almost any device, making them invaluable to those with other health problems that make reading hardcover books painful to impossible. While almost all book reading apps allow you to adjust the font, not all offer the text-to-speech function, and on those that do, not all books are text-to-speech enabled. Depending on the publisher, you will find that they may have chosen to refuse to allow their books to be enabled. Still, there are still a wide variety of book reading apps available to suit your personal needs.

And finally, book readings apps are inexpensive, if not already free for your device, with access to many e-books that are cheaper than their paper equivalents. In addition, there is a plethora of free books available. One of the real joys of using a book reading app is discovering new authors through these free book offerings. Using book reading apps is also a green practice, saving paper and as a result, trees.

I have jumped into it with both feet. Several of my books can be found on apps like Kiss, Webnovel, Magatoon, AnyStories, iReader, Kindle Vella, NovelCat, and others. This is a good and inexpensive way to try my books. Just click on the link below from my web page, go forth and search. Remember, just pennies can bring you hours of enjoyment.
