I can't believe I forgot to share one of the best parts of my Relay for Life experience! Our tent displayed a sign which stated, 'will read books for money', which was out team's attempt to raise more play money for the Relay for Life. I was in charge of bringing books to read.
Instead, I bought my trusty iPhone!! I have blogged before about Stanza, an ebook reader app that I have downloaded onto my phone. Stanza would be one of my favourite applications, and I love the sheer volume of free books that are available. So, being the nerdy, geeky, tech loving librarian that I am, I used the many opportunities I had to share with people information about literacy, and the many forms it can take. I talked about Stanza, and font size, about Project Gutenberg and downloading free books. I showed online catalogues, showed ebooks, and read pages from books. I also talked about vision impaired people downloading stanza to their desktop, and choosing a font size that suits them.
I talked. And shared two of my loves - reading and my iPhone.
