Hoopla is also a great free reading site. It is a free app that connects you with your local library. You register with your library card. You can then "Borrow" free e-books, videos, and audiobooks. I'm not familiar with the Gutenberg site.

I am now addicted to Classic Words on my iPhone🤓

You're not the only one with that addiction. I play that thing until the phone falls from my hand when I go to sleep.

We could start a CW club: Classy Women’s Club🏆
That was a poor attempt to find meaning for CW!

Hi Ellen and others who play Classic Words.

I downloaded it on my Kindle (it has internet connectivity) but I can't figure out how to use it. There were no directions. So after downloading it, I now have what looks like a Scrabble board with letters at the bottom. When I tap on the letters or on the board nothing happens.

Any ideas?

Tap the letter, hold it and drag it to the spot you like for it.

Yes, just reading your entry.
Did you move, slide the letter(s) (at the bottom)
that you wanted to put on the board to form a word?

The first word has to have a letter on CENTER space of the board.

You will develop a strategy:
Putting a high number letter on the double, triple spaces . Add a letter to an existing word, etc.

Keep us posted.

Welcome @walt56. I can't say that MotorTrend TV would be my first choice. Here's the link for others who are car connoisseurs https://www.motortrendondemand.com/channel/shows/94245692/

Walt how are you doing during this stay home period and with COVID-19?

I’m watching “The Planets” it’s about Pluto, then Venus then Mars. Exciting huh! I usually watch old shows 50 plus years old.

@januaryjane There are a lot of things you can watch beside the news it is to depressing . Visual effect on here that JohnBishop started has lots of pictures also go to youtube you can find some interesting talks,, music and pictures. Read a book of crafts you may like , coloring ,adult coloring books are fun to do , a forgotten craft you use to do ? cards board games. Everyone is home at my sons now both he and she work from home and my grandson is home from school he will be 12 so they play a lot of board games. Just some suggestions

I am bringing in Survivor, I have Amazon prime for tv, no cable. I subscribed to CBS all access for 5.99 a month.
For me Survivor is good because you need to pay attention to what is going on in order to understand the show's progression. It is very distracting for me.
I look at Facebook, but stay away from any posts that are news related. I have a friend that keeps me up on anything I need to know

@januaryjane You asked about Netflix, I’m enjoying”Peak Practice.” It’s about a group of doctors in a small English village. Mostly about all the people. Try it!

@becsbuddy I read your post a day ago and my husband and I took your suggestion and watched the first episode of "Peak Practice". It already has us hooked. We were already fans of "Doc Martin" and this series is similar. Thank you!
