Making the best of it

This from a touching and dramatic story --  http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/12/27/too-young-to-have-a-heart-attack/  -- about a woman too young to have a heart attack, who did.  This bit is an irrelevance and threw my attention the wrong way for a moment.

"The night before we left for our summer vacation in Michigan, I accidentally stepped on my Kindle — which, like my heart, I cannot live without — and broke it. Reduced to reading novels on my iPhone, I made the best of it."

I then reached the end of the tale, which draws the moral:

"...people brought dinners and well wishes for weeks on end (not to mention commiseration about trying to read a book on an iPhone, a heart-attack-inducing event if ever there was one)."

I.e., stick to the paper-and-cardboard items, large print if required.
