I recorded this episode during our last two days at Maho Bay Camps on St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands, after 10 days off the Internet. I’m back in Denver now, catching up with the news, and will resume regular episodes next week from Cambridge, Mass., for TKC 185.
Kindles were much in evidence in paradise. I had a chance to speak with Mike and Julie Brown of Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, who are conducting an intriguing comparison of e-readers. Mike has a Nook Simple Touch, and Julie’s e-reader is a Kindle Keyboard WiFi. Their interview begins at 24:06. The next day, I spoke with Chris and
Julie DONNA Bredlow of Moorhead, Minnesota, who were staying at the nearby Cinnamon Bay campground. Their interview begins at 34:41. Books mentioned by Chris and Julie: Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford and Three and Out: Rich Rodriguez and the Michigan Wolverines in the Crucible of College Football by John U. Bacon.
