I just wanted to share with everyone something that i recently discovered. I may be a little late to the party with this but i just downloaded an iPhone/iPad App that reads PDFs to you. Its called Voice Dream but there should be many other similar apps out there. It makes getting through ebooks that much easier. You can adjust the speed (words per minute) at which it reads to you. It will show you a progress bar with time-read and time-left so you know how much time it will take you to get through the book. You can also choose accents, i find the UK accent is the smoothest to listen to, some others sound a little robotic.
I always knew there was such thing as an audio book, but i didn't know that there were apps that could read just any old PDF.
I believe reading is important to real estate success and this app makes it easier and more productive. Im halfway through reading (listening) the 5 books that Brandon Turner recommended in a recent post:
- Rich Dad Poor Dad,
- The 4 hour workweek,
- The total money makeover,
- The Lean Startup, and
- The One Thing - The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results
Another book i recommend is The ABCs of Real Estate Investing by Ken McElroy
Anyways hopefully I've informed some people who will find this useful!
Sweeet, thanks Lee im sure this will help us out a ton (especially me being a newbie ).
