Word Runner has Dynamic Pacing so it gradually builds to your preferred reading speed and algorithmically and automatically slows down for difficult words, punctuation, and paragraph breaks.

Over the second helping of mashed potatoes Thanksgiving Day I mentioned I had made a purchase.
I’d been watching for a reduced price on the Amazon Echo for months and ordered one early Thanksgiving morning for $149.00. I was rather proud that my Echo would soon be in my hands.
When someone asked what it did, I responded with as much as I knew, “It answers questions.”
Later in the discussion someone wondered about the date of Easter 2016. I responded, “If my Echo were here, we could ask.” A question about the calories in pumpkin pie was answered with “If my Echo were here, we could ask.” The absent Echo was one of the most talked about things this Thanksgiving.
Saturday evening while relatives were visiting, I opened the box and went through the simple set-up process. Alexa, the voice of the Echo, answered our questions about the weather around the country, news headlines and even where Alexa is located, “I’m here and my head is in the Cloud.” Alexa did not understand the question of where our 22-year-old niece was that evening, and in all fairness, we didn’t know the answer either.
I hope to have more time to continue customizing the Echo this week. I am excited to enjoy Christmas music and audiobooks through the device as the sound quality is far superior to the Kindle Fire.
If you need a unique and useful gift for that hard-to-buy-for person or want to purchase something special for yourself, I recommend the Echo. I asked Alexa and she agreed that it’s the hottest gift this Christmas season.
Buy yours today during Cyber Monday week for $149.
