Wow! My phone is awesome in reading to me!
Several people have told me they don't have time to read. I get it. But then, because they are spending much time in their car for their job, they like to listen to books.
"Can I listen to your book as I drive?" they have asked.
Yes, Yes! I just found settings on my iPhone 6 that reads to me after a page is opened from my app. Simply swipe down on that page with two fingers from the top of the screen.
You can even select the voice, choosing an Australian or United Kingdom, Irish, or South African accent, if that is to your liking.
So I have a faded app symbol that overlaps other apps, at the top, left of my screen. It is simply a circle with a right arrow inside. When I touch it, the Safari player opens. Then I touch the play arrow and reading resumes.
In my car I will transmit through the audio system. Really awesome! You can move forward, or backward through paragraphs, adjust the speed of reading, and pause at any time.
One word of caution: don't close the reader, (X), or you will lose your place in the story. Simply shrink, or ignore and it will quickly disappear itself.

Enjoy, enjoy! And please spread the word, telling your friends about my books: The Zombie Report, and Doubts Fire.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos

My website is in the exact same area of interest as yours and my users would really benefit from some of the information you present here. Please let me know if this okay with you. Many thanks!

Everything published was actually very reasonable. However, what about this? suppose you added a little information? I ain't suggesting your information is not solid., however suppose you added a post title to maybe grab people's attention? I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is kinda plain. You could peek at Yahoo's front page and note how they create news headlines to get people to click. You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to grab people interested about everything've written. Just my opinion, it might bring your blog a little bit more interesting.

Hi there, There's no doubt that your site could possibly be having browser compatibility issues. Whenever I take a look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however when opening in Internet Explorer, it's got some overlapping issues. I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Besides that, wonderful blog!

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this website. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's challenging to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say you have done a awesome job with this. Additionally, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Internet explorer. Exceptional Blog!
