Babbitt **************** -Best things in life are truly free- -We strive to offer the best reading experience to our users, we appreciate your suggestions, reviews and ratings of this app to help us improve a better reading experience for all- ***************** The book takes its name from the principal character, George F. Babbitt, a middle-aged partner, with his father-in-law, in a real-estate firm. When the story begins, in April 1920, Babbitt is 46 years old. He has a wife, Myra, three children (Verona, 22; Ted, 17; and Tinka, 10), and a well-appointed house in the prosperous Floral Heights neighborhood of “Zenith," a fictitious city in the equally fictitious state of “Winnemac,” which is adjacent to Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan. (Babbitt does not mention Winnemac by name, though Lewis's later novel Arrowsmith elaborates on its location.) When Babbitt was published, newspapers in Cincinnati, Duluth, Kansas City, Milwaukee, and Minneapolis each claimed that their city was the model for Sinclair's Zenith. Cincinnati possessed perhaps the strongest argument for such a claim because Lewis had lived there for a time while researching Babbitt. Lewis's own correspondence suggests, however, that Zenith is meant to be any Midwestern city with a population between about 200,000 and 300,000. Zenith's chief virtue is conformity, and its religion is “boosterism.” Prominent boosters in Zenith include Vergil Gunch, the coal-dealer; Sidney Finkelstein, the ladies'-ready-to-wear buyer for Parcher & Stein's department-store; Professor Joseph K. Pumphrey, owner of the Riteway Business College and “instructor in Public Speaking, Business English, Scenario Writing, and Commercial Law;” and T. Cholmondeley "Chum" Frink, a famous poet of dubious talent. ************* SunScroll Features ************* *Interface & Design* Page Turning,Settings,Menus & Table Of Contents Uniquely Designed Rich Graphical User Interface Designed with focus on reading, menus and settings are out of the way but easily accessible Intuitive Design *Sun Table Of Content System* *3D Page Turning* *Search* *BookMark *Font* Font Face - Option to choose different font types Font Size - Adjust font size to make smaller or larger Text Color - Change the color of the reading text on the screen *Text* Text Alignment - Choose to have text aligned: Left, Right, Center, Justified Line Spacing - Spacing between each line Margin Width - Distance between the text and sides of the reader Link Color - Set color for links Selection Color - Color for highlighted text *Misc* Night Reading - Choose for easier reading at night Page Turn Sound - Page Turning sound on or off Lock Rotation - Option to lock reader to portrait mode only Hide Phone Status - Ability to show or hide the status of the phone/network"
