Hi Len,
I\\\'ve just finished listening to all 20 of your podcasts in the past week. You do a great job and I love the variety and organization of your podcast.
I\\\'m a new Kindle owner (although I haven\\\'t opened it yet---I promised my wife I\\\'d wait until Christmas) and can\\\'t wait to start using it. So for now I\\\'m scouring the web for anything I can find Kindle-related and devouring and consuming everything I can find. So far, your podcast has been one of my favorite finds.

One question: in your closing tagline you say \\\"reminding you to \\\'Read Different\\\'\\\" Is this intended to be a playful misuse of an adverb, rather than saying \\\'Read Differently\\\' as it would be grammatically correct? Are you doing a takeoff on the Apple tag line \\\"Think Different?\\\"

Keep up the great work.
