TRY YOUR LUCK: Doing Reading Right with the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite!

It feels like a lifetime ago, but once, reading was all I did.

Orson Scott Card’s Enderverse. Piers Anthony’s Xanth series. Even when the Harry Potter books were on the rise, I could devour pages by the hundreds in a matter of days.

But life’s changed a lot in the last decade. I’ve got two kids now. Responsibilities on all fronts. Heck—even when I do have free time, I’m working on things to improve every other part of my life!

The sad truth is that despite an ever-growing book collection, the only ones I find time to read these days involve Curious George and the Berenstain Bears for my sons’ bedtimes.

But perhaps part of the problem is how I approach reading.

For better or worse, my life involves a ton of multi-tasking. I write posts with Netflix playing on my second monitor, passively keeping up with the world while I work. Or do chores to my tunes to avoid getting distracted. The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite boasts features like a glare-free 300 ppi display that reads like a printed page—even in bright sunlight—and a battery that last weeks, not hours, but perhaps the best feature it has for me is that it just reads books.

GIVEAWAY: Tile Mate — Helping You Keep Your Stuff BY YOUR SIDE.

I’ve always had a bad habit of losing my stuff.

I mean, it’s largely because I carry too much stuff, but Murphy’s Law runs true, and the things you lose are often the ones that matter most. Keys. Wallets. Phones. Jewelry. We’re so caught up in our hectic days that it’s easy to lose track of the things we put down. Or notice when something falls out of our pockets. Heck—we could be falling apart and not notice ’til it’s too late.

I mean, it’s 2016 and—thank goodness—we’re able to track our handheld devices just about anywhere on the globe… but why can’t we do that with our other stuff?

Presenting the Tile Mate — Your New Counter to Kleptomaniacs and Absentmindedness Alike!

Built to help protect the things we care about most, Tile’s Tile Mate is a mighty device in a tiny package making it easier to find your valuables when they become woefully misplaced!

Measuring an impressively small 11cm², the Tile Mate’s loaded with a number of features that help make missing possessions a thing of the past:

  • tiny speakers that play a loud melody heard even when under piles of laundry or several rooms away;
  • when you’re too far to hear it, the Tile App remembers your Tile Mate’s last location… even if you don’t;
  • for those of us prone to misplacing our phones, you can double-click your Tile Mate and make a noise on your phone—even on silent mode;
  • and my favourite feature—if your Tile Mate’s lost or stolen, you can set your Tile App to notify you when any other Tile gets near it. So the more Tiles people buy, the more chance you find your lost possession! How cool is that?!
