So yesterday in Munich, I find the airport requires your e-mail so they can have all of their groups spam you emails in exchange to use the wifi. That is when I realized I have no games or anything entertaining to do on my laptop w/o internet.
Maybe I its obvious and I don't get it, but can the BP reading material be saved as PDF or something that can be read offline? Any other ideas about places to gather good reading? I would generally be interested in reading REI, self help/DIY, or ideas books. Not a story person- Thanks!
I missed your shout-out.
@Frank Gallinelli's "What Every Real Estate Investor Needs to Know About Cash Flow" would be REI book to have in your library.
It's been a while since I did this because internet is widely available where I travel so take it with grain of salt and test it.
I believe you can always print the web page into PDF format to read on your laptop, if you have PDF converter type of software. Yes, it will require a little bit of planning ahead, but I guess you'll have to choose between planning ahead or give out your email address.
Hope that helps!
If your in Europe, just pick-up a SIM card for you phone in the airport and use your phone as your hotspot. Data packages/rates are quite reasonable w/ DT.
I use Kindle on my phone, which can sync books with cell phone coverage regardless of wi-fi availability. This opens you up to every kindle book available on Amazon. I also download podcasts to listen to at later times.
Checkout books from the city library for free and bring them with you. I haven't bought a book in a long time since doing that.
Thanks all for the responses. No room for books- I live in a container. Just looking for ideas for sites when I can get internet access to download books, so I have them all of the time I cant get access- or other things to entertain my brain.
If you have an ipad, I would recommend that app called Goodreader. While you are "online" you can download all your reading materials to the app which can then be read offline. The app does a fantastic job in formatting your reading material.
no ipad, just a Toshiba PC laptop
