Yesterday I had to drive to a pharmacy about half an hour away to get a prescription refilled.
Because the pharmacy was open for only a few hours because it was Christmas, it was very busy and I was told I’d have to wait about an hour.
Normally that wouldn’t be much fun. But I had my new phone with me. First I called my wife and told her I’d be about an hour later than we’d planned and not to worry.
Then I headed across to a nearby Starbucks, got myself a cup of coffee, at down in a comfortable armchair and started reading.
Three-quarters of an hour later, I walked across to the pharmacy, got the prescription and headed home.
Point of the story? Because my phone is my eBook reader, it’s always there. And I can read anywhere, anytime.
“Always-there” more than makes up for the smaller screen.
