Tale Never Told for ipad; a fairy tale for grown-ups - and their children!

 

Hello everyone!

 

I am a fairy tale that has never been told. I live at the edge of the big fairy tale forest and every day I use to follow the paths collecting mushrooms, wild cherries and pine cones with my little basket. After an exciting and overwhelming adventure that I lived, a life experience, I would say, I am today close to realize my biggest dream: be narrated and become well-known!

What I read this week - The Rookie, and Parolisse!

image

I read two very different sources of inspiration this week... First, Parolisse is a study reference to help one drill down into the Bible. The app includes several translations and supporting material to help you understand practically any Bible topic. Next up is The Rookie: an amazingly cool story of a rookie QB starting his first season in the Galactic Football League. To simply state that The Rookie blends Sci-Fi yarn-spinning and football together (admittedly a weird mix) is akin to stating the Taj Mahal is but yet another ornately decorated building. The story just freakin ROCKS! If you are a hater of either football or science fiction, The Rookie might just convert you to both in one fell swoop...! No exaggeration...

What I read this week - The Island on iPad mini!

image

The new iPad mini is so perfect for reading, don't even want to talk about it...but I will, anyway. It sounds ridiculous and pampered to say, but I can't understand how we tolerated a full-sized iPad for hours and hours of reading. Ah, the sacrifices one must make... The mini screen is so amazingly sharp, the text practically reads itself! That's an exaggeration, of course, but it seems that way to me (new device glow, it's called). I haven't done many "what I read this week" posts admittedly, but this eBook was too good to not do a quick one anyway. I like to push the free iTunes reads (especially the good ones) on our blog and magazine every chance I get. Good free/low-cost fiction, especially recent stuff is, well...as rare as nasty flying imps with sharp teeth! If you like Sci-Fi/Horror, you have to grab this series of free chapters in iBooks from Michael Stark called The Island. Anyway, you can get 3 excellent chapters free, and 2 more installments are only 99 cents each to complete the story. You grab this astonishingly-descriptive and frightening work, and you will not want to put the iPad mini down. By the end of chapter 3, you might consider keeping mini close at hand as a weapon for what you think might be lurking in the closet! iPad mini is small, but quite sturdy after all...
