A Sizeable Book Collection
The Library of Congress in Washington D.C. consists of more than 700,000 volumes and includes the first book printed in North America, "The Bay Psalm Book," which was published in 1640.
A massive pile of books, magazines and rolled-up newspapers can overwhelm a living space. Stop staring at those cramped bookshelves and download the Kindle app for your iPad! This app gives users the ability to store reading materials on an easy-to-use, full-color interface, allowing you to carry your entire digital library with you everywhere. You'll have access to more than 950,000 titles, and you can even download the first chapter of most books for free before you buy. Your digital library can be organized by title or author, and you'll be able to create bookmarks and notes, as well as highlight words and passages.
Not sure what obstreperous means? No problem! Look up unknown words with Kindle's built-in dictionary, and use the Google and Wikipedia links for even more information. Best of all, Amazon Whispersync syncs your bookmarks, notes and the last page you read across all devices, so you never have to worry about losing your place again, regardless what digital device you're using!
