An application for phones and tablets that don't let words get in the way of READIN!
Download your favorite reading material, like "Milleskie
Was a Haberdasher," and with technology already
available today, this magnificent app adds
to each word including but not limited to, physics (i.e.
some words are heavier, quicker than other words), role
(i.e. is it
a friend, or a foe?; good or evil?),
(does it blink, change colors?), environment (is it a part
the landscape? Or is it an interactive part of the game?).
Once you get as far into books as you usually do and
you have a new reason to click START!
Where was I
. so once you've read close enough to the
plot to where you see the book
with a swipe, you can
activate certain "game modes." Game mode 1: Find
replace - while reading, the book randomly interchanges
words from one sentence into another while you're
completely making what you just read absolutely
If that doesn't keep your eyes glued, switch to game
2: Angry Words! Its verbs vs nouns, verbs find
themselves at the mercy of an evil and oppressive
enforced by evil nouns. Send them to a happier place by
activating this game mode and the verbs form an
and declare war, and they're there to tell them what for!
Using the swipe feature, you can hurl verbs at nouns and
watch their meaning turn as meaningless as the preface.
Keep fit in Game Mode 3: turn on the Rapid Paragraph
Movement (RPM) and try to keep your eyes focused on
random movements intended on testing your eye's limits
and enhancing your range of motion (ROM)! If you can
make it through the book after all that, you're going to
amazing, and you're friends will notice too.

||Fire Chief Beatty* would approve.

||Remember, "Never apologise, never explain".
||//never apologise, never explain// that would explain the lack of apologies. .... wait, what?
||Anyways, I'd mfd the post but I'm not too happy with the push to make LCD's e-readers either [ ].
