As I’ve previously mentioned, I’m not an annotator when it comes to digital content on my Amazon Kindle. Maybe I just need the right use case to get started. A jkOTR reader has pinged me via a Twitter DM with one great example that’s worth sharing.
Eddie just read 1973′s “The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3,” which was turned into a movie in 1974 and then remade two additional times. The most recent remake is due out next week and Eddie plans to catch the flick. In order to help keep all of the characters straight and provide useful info, Eddie took notes for each on his Sony Reader PRS-700. Since the device has a touchscreen, all he has to do is tap a character name and his notes are called up. Even better: the PRS-700 has LED sidelights, so Eddie can read his character notes in a dark theater, if desired. With so many great stories from books going to the big screen, this slick idea could be pretty useful. Thanks for sharing, Eddie!
