charles-wright-thumbNews (1:56) -The  ReadingRights coalition conducts a good old-fashioned street protest at the Authors Guild office in New York City, and a related petition attracts nearly 5,000 signers who seek to protect the Kindle 2’s Text to Speech capability for the benefit of the disabled.  Taggers battle in support of the $9.99 price point for Kindle books.

Tech Tip (8:35) – Larry in Bay City, Oregon, provides an elegant tagging system for keeping track of content which you send to your My Clippings document.

Quote (25:44) – “Angels Take the Form of Wyo. Snowplow Drivers” in The Denver Post.

Comments (27:39) – Esmeralda deTrafford (who maybe helps lower a book‘s price to $9.99), Greg Vann (who somehow snagged a Kindle copy of Winds of War), Soosie Burnett (whose battery question is answered by Stephen Windwalker),Delores Martin (LibraryThing), and Dorothy Witter (new fonts hack).

    I have been listening to The Kindle Chronicles since the first podcast even though I did not own a Kindle! 😉

    Just wanted to let you know that I am taking the plunge and have placed my order. (using the Amazon link on your site)

    I have been using the Kindle iPhone app but I am looking forward to finally being able to use the ‘real’ thing.

    Thanks for all the great work you have been doing with the podcast.
