I hear parents complaining about how technology distracts kids and how some games and gizmos effectively make their kids dumber. I often tell them that the solution lies in their hands: replace those apparently useless gadgets with more educational stuff that their kids will still enjoy.
If you feel like you’re in the same rut, then you can get started by getting the 3000 Books in One Flash Drive.
It’s literally a library that fits in the palm of your hand. You can take it anywhere and plug it into your laptop or desktop whenever you feel like checking out a book. It saves time and effort from having to make frequent trips to the local library, so you should definitely consider getting one if you’re a huge book worm.
The books include classic renowned titles from Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, and Oscar Wilde. The 3000 Classic Books flash drive is available online for $29.95(AUD) (~$28 USD). If the cutesy book design or the price tag doesn’t appeal to you, then you could just hit up Project Gutenburg and save the 42,000 titles they have onto your own USB drive for the price of nil.
