    Naaah, won't work. The country music will capture all your attention. Wait until you can devote all your attention to the book.

    The music show should be great.

    @Yvonne Smith, Yvonne, you have through your knowledge provided here on this forum,
    and to me personally, you have become my go to person in all things computer, iPad, and
    on Amazon. I hope you won't mind another bother. Because of recommendations on this
    forum, I went on Amazon a few minutes ago with the intent of buying the Kindle addition
    because of the print enlargement feature. It no longer seems to be available on kindle,
    and I simply must have an enlarged print. Would you please my accuracy at an early convince?
    Submitted humbly, of course.

    Ken Burns puts out good stuff. Regardless of who you are, what you believe, Ken usually does it up brown, and the results are solid entertainment. Besides, the historey of Country Music is basically(sp?) the history of our country. If you watch, let's compare notes, huh?

    Well, it might. I am an extraordinary person when I put my mind to something, ever so weak it may be.

    Not me. I have a one track mine. I would either get absorbed in the music or the book.

    @Charlene Marolf and added later.

    I sometime make exceptions upon
    recommendations from good people,
    therefore, I am looking to find a copy
    I can read. Thank you.

    @Shirley Martin, I suppose I was never too good at multitasking, and they say
    people who multitask do justice to neither subject, that concentrating
    on one at a time is best and a better job is done. However, I am not
    trying to please his Holiness, or some boss who knows I am his superior
    when it comes too research, and getting the final result, and while I have
    a problem reading with my one good eye, I can usually get good results
    if need be. So what does it come down to? Need, desire. Danged if I know.
    may just give it a try, young'un.

    Have you ever stopped to count all the things you have got done? I bet we'd all be amazed.

    I am not quite sure what you are asking me, @Bill Boggs . Every Kindle has the option of setting the print size, right in the display settings. It doesn’t matter which book you purchase, because you set the size on your Kindle itself.
    When you have your Kindle open, pull down from the top of the screen, and you will see on the right side (next to the name of your Kindle) a little gearbox, which is settings.
    Open settings and choose display, and then select font size.

    If you are using the Kindle app on you iPad, it is easily changed , too. When you have a book open with the Kindle app, touch the upper right corner of the screen, and you will see a tool bar, and one has “Aa”, and that is what has all of your settings for brightness, color, and font size. Just keep clicking the up arrow for font, and it will keep enlarging the print.

    Here is what the settings page looks like on a Kindle.

    Here is what it looks like on the iPad Kindle app, and I have circled the place that enlarges the print .

    I think @Bill Boggs is saying that the book is no longer available for Kindle. I get my books by going to Amazon.com.

    How would I even know if any specific book was available in the Kindle edition, @Shirley Martin ? Bill didn’t even give me the name of any book so that I can check to see if I can find it with the kindle online edition.
