An Interview with Lendle's Brian Ford

Submitted by Tom Peters on April 4, 2011 - 9:33am

Last Friday Brian Ford, one of the co-founders of, an ebook lending service for Kindle editions, sat down with Tom Peters to talk about the wild and woolly month of March Lendle experienced. Lendle had to close down briefly and unexpectedly in March when Amazon blocked access to their API. This resulted in an equally unexpected amount of media attention and public outrage. Tom and Brian discuss not only this March Madness, but also the longer term issues and opportunities for authors, rights holders, publishers, libraries, and readers.

Thanks again, Tom. It was

Thanks again, Tom. It was nice to do an interview that wasn't merely a checklist of stats surrounding our site. We're really excited to be a part of the discussion surrounding ebooks and lending at such a formative time in the industry.
