InterviewCarolyn Kellogg caught my attention with her Los Angeles Times blog post titled “iPad’s book-like touches may appeal to traditional readers.” The Blog is titled Jacket Copy, and you can subscribe to it on your Kindle by clicking here.  In a phone/Skype conversation on April 20, we discussed the essence of the book and other topics.

ContentStephen Windwalker discusses Amazon’s exclusive Kindle book published with Time MagazineLove, Sex, Freedom and the Paradox of the Pill, available for $5.59 at the Kindle Store.  Another book you won’t find in the Apple iBooks store is Blockade Billy, a novella by Stephen King, priced at $7.79.  Also, a quick comparison of reading the Wall Street Journal on Kindle versus the same newspaper as an iPad app.

Comments – I hear back from dizzle, who called me out here and turns out to be a “she”, as well as a former Kindle owner saving up for an iPad. Also, Greg Keck on his iPad experiences and a long message from CEN about migraines, LCD screens and the Kindle DX as cure.
