    The kindle chronicles is one of my favorite podcasts. I enjoy every episode, but the ones with your family are always more special. I suppose maybe because I like to see how others use their devices, which devices they like and why, and also what they are reading.

    Your family was great today. I’m curious though, what iPhone does your father use? The 6, or the larger plus size or is he still on their smallest screen? And if you don’t mind my asking, what kindle does he and your grandson like to use? Thanks for another great episode!

    Len, thanks for sharing your family with us. It was a pleasure to hear your articulate grandson and father share their experiences. You are fortunate to have them both in your life.

    Thanks, Dan. Dad uses an iPhone 6, with the smaller screen, not the Plus. He also has an older basic Kindle. James has the Paperwhite from two years ago. Sorry for the delay in moderating your comment!

    Thanks for that, Gary. I loved listening to this interview once it was uploaded, and so did Dad and James.
