How Do You Aid your PC, Mobile or Tablet Using the Free Kindle App

Do you prefer a digital or a print version of a book to read? I guess the answer from what I read is the print.   Old habits are not easy to drop, while new practices get cautious approaches.  That is human nature. I didn't pay much attention to this choice until I published my eBook on a digital platform. That was a choice I made based on my research on publishing.  So many people asked me whether I would get it in print.  My answer is, I am not sure about that now.   My inability to make that decision is a money matter.  Going for print brings a whole different cost equation to the forge.  You, as a customer, would pay more for reading it in print than digital.   I am not promoting reading it digitally, but if you want to read it digitally, there are easy ways to do that, even if you don't own a kindle.  Most of you are aware of these steps.  I will explain them below if you aren't familiar.  You have a PC, a Mobile, or a Tablet, good.     Step 1 .

2021 With the Blog Chatter

 How would I remember BlogChatter 2021? The image was customised using Canva.com I joined BlogChatter in April this year. Sooner than later, I participated in the ebook carnival, a month-long activity that ended on 5 May.   I was cradling the idea of book publishing having a skeletal understanding of its processes and was excited to read the wads of information on the topic flooding through dedicated posts and WhatsApps.   The group discussion exposed me to a unique experience that is not an exaggeration.  No question from anyone was left untended by virtual strangers.  Tension was climbing, knots were tightening, sleep was departing, I felt like finding a home on a cosy distant island on a tight expedition.  On a personal reward point, I felt younger being among the youngsters.  My memories are still green--how would I grade it now other than giving five over five.:) Unfortunately, I couldn't reach the height of publishing my story with others--still not published.  The reasons I
