Due to Technical Difficulties....

I wanted to blog about reading books on my cellphone yesterday, but I can't find an app for that.

There's supposed to be a Kindle app for Android, but I can't find it in the Marketplace.

According to Amazon's website, you should be able to scan a barcode and get the app, except I don't know how to use my bar scanner. And I don't know where the manual for my cellphone is.

Although the thousand-page paperback I'm currently reading is unwieldy, the tech level required is so simple even I can manage it.

P.S. Speaking of more technical difficulties, my son caused quite a few of them as he laid and climbed all over me while I wrote up this post.

Sandra, I just did a search and immediately found Kindle for Android by Amazon Mobile on my phone, using Marketplace search. It's free. I don't know if this will help, but hopefully you can find it too.

That's the problem, Eric; I can't. When I search for "Kindle," I get eight results, none of them correct. When I search for "Kindle for Android," I get nothing. Maybe it's my carrier.

LOL. Your son sounds like a little monkey. How old is he?

Are you a writer? Then you MUST enter this CONTEST!

I don't know if this will help, but while I was looking for something else, I found this article on the Kindle app.

I've looked there already, but thanks, Maria.

It must be our carrier -- my husband can't find the Kindle app either, and I've discovered other T-Mobile users saying the same thing. I hope T-Mobile adds it soon!
