TKC 119 Stephen on Ender’s Game

Note: This episode was pre-loaded on October 13, 2010 from Cambridge, Mass.

Tech Tip – Mitch Miggins from British Columbia, Canada, sent me a detailed tip on how to use Velcro to fasten the Kindle 3 more securely to its Amazon cover, to prevent mishaps that can damage the posts to the cover.  I tried it out, and it works great!

Interview – My nephew Stephen from Nebraska, who is 14 years old, told me during an interview in early July that he had never read a novel.  I was pretty surprised by this, and after the interview he accepted my proposal that he read Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card and, for a research payment of $50, prepare to talk about the book with me for a future episode.  This interview was recorded on August 21, 2010.  Did Stephen like the first novel he’s ever read?  Have a listen…

Content – On my Kindle for our trip to South Africa and Botswana: The Pickup by Nadine Gordimer, Ways of Dying: A Novel by Zakes Mda, and Conversations with Myself by Nelson Mandela.

The sound UFO sound effect at the end of the interview was created by waterboy920 and made available through The Freesound Project.
