It's Book Lover’s Day and I couldn’t be more eager to settle in with a good book now that the cooler weather is here. For some of you, staying inside could mean playing board games with the family or watching movies with friends. But I find that a book can be a great way to pass the time and expand your mind



We’ve chosen a few tablets and apps to get you started on some great new reads. Read on to see our top picks.


New Apple iPad Pro (2018)

Meet Apple’s newly redesigned iPad Pro, packed with the most advanced technology they have to offer. Unlike the previous Pros the 2018 ones are available with 1TB of storage making you rethink what the iPad is cable of. The large screen is perfect for story time with the kids.


Samsung Galaxy Tab S4

The Tab S4 offers an immersive, high-quality AMOLED screen providing a clear and crisp display. The Daily Board offers you a way to check the weather, the time, or set reading reminders. Even better is the S4’s battery life---up to 20 hours, to make sure you get the most out of your tablet.


Usage based on average user profile. Actual battery life depends on factors such as network, features selected, frequency of calls, and voice, data and other application-usage patterns. Results may vary.
