Tech Tip – It’s been a while since I’ve tried to read a PDF on an E Ink Kindle. On the Kindle Paperwhite, I found it works very well indeed.
Interview (Starts at 20.36) – Stephen Windwalker, creator of Kindle Nation Daily, stopped by the house for a chat on Wednesday, October 10th. We discussed the new lineup of Kindles, KND’s new daily web format, and April Hamilton’s in-depth coverage of the Kindle Fire for KND, among other things.
Content – I took advantage of a day laid low by a cold to read The History of a Pleasure Seeker a beautifully written novel by Richard Mason. I hope to have him on the show soon to discuss an innovative enhanced version of his book. It may look something like an earlier, free version available on iOS devices. I have also been hooked by a Kindle Serial, Option to Kill (A Nathan McBride Novel) by Andrew Peterson.
