Kindle Oasis and Facebook Q&A – WHS 187

Kindle Oasis and Facebook Q&A – WHS 187

I held a live Q&A on Facebook earlier this week and this is the audio of most of that Q&A.

If this is something you’d like me to do in the future, please leave a comment below or on my Facebook page.

Also during the broadcast, I talked about the new Kindle Oasis from Amazon.
