President Obama is giving a jobs speech from Amazon’s Chattanooga, Tenn. warehouse Tuesday (despite a lot ofconsternation from independent booksellers) and Amazon has found a convenient additional benefit of the visit.
Kindle Singles editor David Blum will interview Obama while he’s there, and Amazon will release the interview Wednesday as a Kindle Single, USA Today reports. Amazon confirmed to me that the Kindle Single will be free.
The Obama interview is the second entry in a new series of Kindle Singles long-form interviews that Amazon launched last week. The first one was with the president of Israel, and Amazon sold it for $0.99. I’m curious to see the kinds of questions that Blum asks: I’d personally love to know whether the Obamas are Amazon Prime members.
