      Greetings and Welcome, new members!! We are so glad you found KindleBoards, an independent resource for people who own or have interest in Kindle, so our forum is for both readers and writers. We have many areas that you probably will like. Have you been to The Book Corner yet?  That's the area for discussions about books (naturally :D ). That's also where you will find threads about books Recommended by our Members and a list of additional sites for Book Lovers.
     Then there is the Book Bazaar where our member/authors post about their books and the Writers' Cafe that has discussions about writing, publishing and many other topics. Here is a link to all the KindleBoards authors:Unofficial master list of KindleBoards Authors. That is also where you will locate Bargain Books and even Free Books threads where you can get reading material at low or no cost!  If you have a question about your Kindle or it's usage, check out the FAQ or the forum about Tips, Tricks and Trouble Shooting . Or, just ask your question. We have many helpful and knowledgeable people here at KB  and we feel there is no such thing as a "dumb" question. Questions about KindleBoards may be answered at  Forum tips. If not, once again, ask away! To keep everything running smoothly, we ask that everyone read Forum decorum. There are a few points there particularly for authors.  Further questions from authors concerning KB may be answered here: Authors:8 essential KindleBoards tips.
      Another popular place is Let's Talk Kindle, where all things in the Kindle world are posted about. Do you have a Kindle Fire? Join in the conversations or ask questions in the Fire Talk area. Be sure and check out the Photo Gallery, where pictures of members, pets, flowers, landscapes or just almost anything interesting can be found.
     Have you been to the Accessories area? There you will see information about covers, skins, lights, bags, stands and many other items to allow you to personalize your Kindle.
Looking to just kill some time while you are waiting for your Kindle or if you have your kindle, want to try something different? Try INFINITY Game - Word Association or The "INFINITY" Thread: KEEP POSTING...Ready, Set,... GO!!! or one of the other threads in the Not Quite Kindle area.
Sorry for the long post, but there is just so much to do, learn and like about KindleBoards that I just get carried away. :)

Hello everyone! I just picked up a Kindle recently (I'm a Nook convert), but I've been following ebooks and self-publishing for a very long time. Looking forward to chatting with you all!

I just bought my first Kindle (Touch), and I realized I've actually been a member for a while. Not sure when that happened, but I plan to be active now. Looking forward to learning more about my new toy...I mean completely-vital-to-my-existence e-reader.  ;)

Hello, Nice to meet all of you on Kindle Boards. Looking forward to participating in discussions of all things Kindle.
If you love something set it free... This heartwarming story is about friendship, letting go, and the connection of those three little words "I Love You."

Meet Wookiwoo, a happy little green bird who has found a new friend Jack. Wookiwoo is always there for Jack as he grows up to be a young man. In time Jack outgrows his pet and sets him free. Wookiwoo meets up with Lu Lu, another parrot he knew from the pet shop and they have a family of their own. The ending brings tears of joy to one's eyes in this delightful story of unconditional love.

"Wookiwoo will be shared throughout the years, and enjoyed and cherished by all who have the opportunity to read this book." ~Carolyn Hopkins, OC Public Libraries

"Every child should have a copy of this book." ~ Dr. Annie Thiel, PhD, MFT.

I'm new on Kindle Boards. I'm a reader (Mrs Ruby bought me the basic Kindle last Christmas and I haven't looked back), reviewer, blogger and writer. Looking forward to picking up some really good book recommendations. My reading preference is literary fiction but will give anything a go.

Hi everyone.  I'm new at Kindle Boards.  Hope to share thoughts about great (and not so great) books and I look forward to learning more about my Kindle.  I'm embarrassed to say that I bought it last year and I still don't know how to use the 3G feature!  Sigh.  One day!

My son is starting his first semester of junior college. He says that he can save money on textbooks by buying a kindle.  Then downloading PDF files of the textbooks.  Is this a good idea? or should i just rent/buy textbooks?

Thanks for the welcome -- I've been a Kindle reader since started reading on my laptop, then I received my iPad 2 years ago as a birthday present (80!) Later I added my Kindle--So now I'm armed with all three portable devices and 156 books on my shelf. I also authored and edited books for publication. But most people know me as the "Marketing Plumber" - a fix it guy with a solid marketing background. Come visit my website http://ow.ly/cPRig
