Len Edgerly and The Kindle Chronicles
...and a link to a little interview I did with Len on his weekly podcast!
If you have a Kindle you should know Len Edgerly! If you're thinking about buying a Kindle this is the man with the answers! Len Edgerly is the mind behind The Kindle Chronicles, a popular weekly podcast covering "All things Kindle". Each friday, The Kindle Chronicles podcast covers current Kindle news, a Tech Tip, an interview, a quote and comments he's received from the Kindle community.... and this past Friday Len interviewed me on my coming out of the closet with my love for the Kindle!
With a warm and engaging manner, Len is a wonderful interviewer. Our podcast interview sounds like two friends chatting together over coffee... And what we talked about was the love of reading and how the Kindle has added a a new dimension to my enjoyment of a good book! We also talked a bit about how the Chick with Books blog came to be and how I've started to integrate the Kindle into the blog. Here's the link to my interview .
A graduate of Harvard College and the Harvard Business School, Len has worked as a business journalist, an editor of an energy magazine, and an executive at a natural gas company. AND he has a Masters in Fine Arts in poetry! Of course he has a book on Kindle... A Poet's Progress at Bennington , "a mix of commentary on poets and my own original poems". I enjoyed reading his original poems, and I was particularly touched by his poem The Day Mary Died, about the unfortunate passing of a beloved dog...
