Google Play Books – eReader for your Phone | Free #Android App of the Week
I love my MotoX. I don’t know if it’s just that it can do more than the phones that I’ve had in the past, or if it’s just because Google does more now. No telling. But, I’ll say this… I love that my Android is basically my Google hub.
I’ve noticed Play Books on my phone for a while, and I always skip over it, because I don’t have a desire to pay full price for digital books. I like to read books that I find for free or really cheap or books that are given to me. I’m cheap, I know. It’s kinda why I wasn’t all that heartbroken when the Minion broke my Kindle Fire. Ok, maybe I was a little upset, because I liked it for playing games, but as far as books go… I didn’t really read a whole lot on it. I don’t need no stinkin’ eReader.
Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about Swiss Family Robinson, and when I was putting Jett to bed earlier, I decided to look through the free books on Play Books. Not really wanting to read, I told myself…. “If Swiss Family Robinson shows up on the free list, I’ll download it and read it.”
Low and behold.
Google Play Books is a simple app. It’s like a Kindle or any other kind of eReader where you download the book you’d like to read, and swipe the screen to flip the pages – and when I say that, trust me, it looks just like flipping pages!
I also like that I can bookmark the page and come back to it later. Simple. Just like a paper book.
So now, I’m reading Swiss Family Robinson. I’ve only seen the old movie… never actually read it. You would think that reading a book on your phone would make the words annoyingly small, but I don’t think it’s that small at all. And you know what… it’s free.
