Enjoying the Kindle app on my mobile device(s)
Right now, I'm roughly 1/4 of the way through a book. I did roughly 75% of my reading on my ThinkPad Tablet, about 10% on my Android smartphone, and 15% on my iPad.
This seems like a great way to help medical students keep up with their studies. They should have synchronized textbooks that are accessible on any mobile device. This way, whether they have a tablet or a smartphone, they can read, review, memorize, and work through various clinical subjects to achieve mastery. I didn't have that luxury when I was a student. I still remember carrying heavy textbooks in my backpack and wondering when these things would enter the digital era.
Some of you have probably never purchased an e-book (or digital book). Well, there's a first time for everything. If you're not sure about digital reading, you can test it out by installing the Kindle app on your mobile device and reading some free classics like The Art of War or the Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
