5 Reads I Wish Was on the KindlePosted: November 26, 2010
1. TableTalk – Over a year ago I started reading TableTalk by Ligonier. I started because it was the first ever devotional I had picked up and read that actually was substantial in its content. I was not like some focus on the family, daily beard, read one page devotional as I am waiting for the coffee to brew. It was an actual, theological devotional with a number of article that constantly kept peaking my interest, to finally my wife and I purchased a one-year subscription about 6-months ago. However, I do wish it was on the Kindle for two reasons. One for the purpose that I could simply pick on my Kindle after dinner and read where I left off the day before. Two, so I could keep them all in one place, searchable for future reference and I not need to keep an ever growing bookshelf for TableTalk alone.
2. Journal of the Evangelical Society – being a member of ETS, I enjoy keeping up with their journal, reading the latest essay written on theological topics and glancing through the book reviews of what is new. These in a kindle format would be idea, searchable for future reference and easy to have all in one spot once again not taking up the room they are now on my book self. Thinking about it more, I wish Puritans’, Themelios, and 9-Marks where are in kindle format. I know I can place the PDF on the Kindle, but the size of the font and search-ability is lost.
3. A RSS Feeder – I wish I could read the blogs I RSS for free on the Kindle, keeping me off my computer. At times at night before bed I want to read for FREE the blogs I keep up with, but not set in my office doing so on my computer or lay in bed with a computer. I really wish NetNewsWire made an app for the Kindle.
4. The New York Times – I simply do not understand this newspaper. Free to read online, free to download the iTouch app (which you can search through) but if you want the Kindle or paper version it will cost you $20 a month. Unreal!?
5. Logos – I know this will never happen, but it sure would be nice to transfer all my “books” from Logos to have on my digital ebook reader.
