Adventures with Android

I have slowly been getting used to having an Android phone. Now I know it's not one of those flashy iPhones but so far it's doing the job. Instead of using my thumbs, I tend to text with my right index finger. Using a typewriter setup on a small touchscreen isn't the easiest thing to compose a simple sentence - "no, I'm typing an 'a,' not an 's.'" I'm not used to cell phones where you do more than just talk and text and maybe look at the Internet. This particular phone has Google everything on it - Gmail, Google Play, Google+, Google Play books; heck, I don't know what half this stuff does. I'm not really into Google whatnot, except when I'm looking up a person, place or thing. But once I turned the phone on for the first time and it went through all the Google updates, I immediately became the owner of the Google books "Treasure Island," "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "The Three Musketeers." Well isn't that nice.
