I see a "transfer via computer" option to click. But I own a Kindle Fire, so maybe that's why I'm getting this option. Let me know if this shows up for you. If not, we'll figure it out.

Often I'm just waiting for the characters to tell me what is going on. At times like this, I'll take a break and go for a walk or watch the birds at the feeders. If it's summer, I may go for a swim or walk the beach and collect sea glass. I have to keep listening though for when the characters start to talk again. (less)
