I Liked your page on FB, but I do have a question.  Are you going to allow ads and book promotions on your page?  The Amazon Kindle page is pretty much useless any more because it's all ads and promotions.

It's a great question. We took a hard look at what other blogs and FB pages are doing, and decided against going the "normal route", which would be an endless stream of anonymous book recommendations, or a dump of freebies filling up your newsfeed.

Instead, we're leveraging our strength, which is a forum of real people having real Kindle conversations. So the kinds of things you'll get from us are based on that.

Here are the kinds of posts you can expect from us:

 - Trending topics from the forums (curated)
 - "real reader recommendations" from our Book Corner
 - a curated list of free Amazon books
 - Deep-dive into Top 10 books in a particular genre
 - Kindle tips
 - Web Wednesday, where we select and highlight another site of interest to Kindle owners
 - Thank You Thursday - where we thank a particular sponsor of the boards
 - Exclusive KB contests (psssst: one coming up on August 20th!)
 - KB-only discounts on accessories
 - amazon kindle deal of the day
 - amazon free app of the day
 - profiles of KB authors (not paid-for, it's a free service we offer)
 - "real reader recommendations" on Kindle accessories

Thank you so much for supporting us by liking our FB page and following our blog!

-Harvey

Wow, you're going all out with the KB expansion, Harvey - how exciting! I shall run over to FB and like it right away. :)  The KB forums have been an invaluable resource in the nearly 4 years I've been aboard, and I have no doubt these new social outlets you've added will prove to be the same.

Thank you so much for your kind comments.

In the past two days, about 200 of you have visited our KB Facebook page and "liked" it. Thank you for doing that and I hope you enjoy the info and updates that we post there.

P.S. We have a Kindle accessory contest coming up, on August 20th, that will appear on the Facebook page. It will be accompanied by an exclusive KB discount code for a major accessory vendor.

So head on over there and "like" it to ensure you don't miss out on that!

We launched the FB page and blog one month ago today, with the internal goal of having 1,000 "likes" on the FB page in a month.

Well, it looks like today we're going to reach not 1,000, but 3,000 likes! Thanks so much for the encouragement!

Do you follow our Facebook page? You can do so by "liking" us at http://www.facebook.com/kindleboards... and you'll receive our free Kindle books alerts plus other useful information for Kindle owners!

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to Skid in sideways, champagne in one hand, strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and shouting: Damn-What a ride!
