I think I've found the solution to that with my Amazon Kindle. We spent a few days o the beach in Destin, Florida right on the Gulf of Mexico. There's nothing like reading on the beach when it works. A lot of the time, the glare from the sun is too much and the wind blows too hard to keep the pages from flapping around.
This time I took my Kindle which I've had for a year. I have about 20 books on it, including a couple of study Bibles and a couple e-piles of political books.
How'd it work? Great. I could read each page very easily and I could make notes with little effort using the built-in keyboard. With the waves crashing in the background, I could also clearly listen to the books being read to me.
What was my son Justin using? His new iPad. It worked even better.
I will write more about the trip and upload more pictures.
