    Hi Len,
    I was really looking forward to your podcast this week because of the release of the Kindle 2 and enjoyed your interview with Joshua Topolsky. I also followed his live blog last Monday and found it to be the best on the web. I was torn about buying the Kindle 2, but can’t get the idea out of my head that I could buy 36 or more books for the money I would be spending on something I already have. My Kindle 1 does everything I want it to and the new features of the Kindle 2 don’t excite me enough to buy. Maybe Kindle 3 will be more enticing. Thanks for your very interesting and always educational podcast.
