Beach Reading on the iPAD

I am heading to the beach for a week of vacation (and birthday celebration).  Normally, I'd pack 3 or 4 paperbacks and perhaps find one in the lounge of a resort.  This year, it is iBooks on my iPAD.

I've downloaded several books (mystery and non-fiction) for the iPAD, as well as 2 that I can access from my Kindle App on the iPAD.  Tested reading in bright sunlight and hope I don't get any send in my new gizmo.

It will be interesting to see how it works - in terms of my engagement in the vacation reading process (which I love as an escape).  Do I get as lost in the pages if the pages are backlit images?  Hmmmmm


  1. I've done the same, although not in bright sunlight. Perfect application for the iPad - will be interested to see what you think.

    BTW, why do you write it "iPAD"? Is there an insider acronym joke I'm missing here? :)

    Beach reading is fine!. More glare than the Kindle but ,acceptable. Actually had to turn off wifi to not get distracted. But a perfect alternative to taking laptop on vacation.
