Welcome Gator Reader, you & I will get along well. I am the most unsavy computer person you will ever meet. I had never heard the word avatar before I came here.  ;) Now they are patiently teaching me to use the link maker. It has been a real pain in the butt for me.

Funny story....after I posted here - I wanted to boast to my kids and show them how accomplished I was....but because of the way my computer is configured at work I couldn't get it to work at all....so I had the Proud Mommy subject line and .....oh, I just deleted it!

I have two girls in college but still have a son at home....he will help me, yet again when I get home!  Ugh!   Thanks for the welcome.

Thanks for taking time out from reading to welcome me chynared21, Angela and Kirstin.  It's good to be here. 
It's a lazy Saturday (hopefully) and a little drizzly here so I'm planning to make myself a nice cup of coffee and grab a few hours on the Kindle.  I'm reading the Alchemist by Paulo Coelho and it grabbed me from the first page.  Just finished some freebies by Mary Roberts Rinehart....wow, how life has changed since she wrote!  Cheers.

Welcome Aboard Gator Reader,

I didn't know how to put in pictures and stuff in my posts either, but keep reading and trying the directions in the posts, and all the friendly help you get, and you will be able to be a whizz at it. 

You've come to the right place for Kindle Lovers.

Thanks for the welcome Sailor....yeh, so my son is graduating high school this year ...so my tech support will be leaving. I am looking to learn how to master technology in general....the fancy cell phone, i-pod, blog posting....I figure it will give me something to do when I'm finally empty nested....though I'm kicking and screaming about giving up my mommy status !  I know....you remain a mommy even when they are in college....but I hate parenting college age kids (I have two girls away at school now!)  Anyway, it'll give me more time to read and LOVE my KINDLE.

Just got my Kindle yesterday and am already in love! Problem is that it is a Christmas gift so I am not supposed to have it in my possesion till then. I did however manage to download four books and check out the welcome message before I handed it over to my partner to be hidden till next month! I can tell that this is going to be a life changing gadget for me. I remember how thrilled I was when I discovered Amazon about ten years ago and realized that I could order just about any book and have it in days. Now to have books in seconds really blows my mind! I miss the little guy already! Can't wait to read all of your helpful hints and tips on this board by the time I get it back next month I'll be a pro!

Welcome tranquil1. I feel your pain!! My kindle was originally purchased as a Christmas present and I had to hand it over after having it in my possession for 4 days! I was more fortunate though... the hubby caved and let me have my present early! I had to do a little pleading and the eye batting thing, but it paid off! Glad you have found your way here!

Welcome to Kindle Boards, Tranquil1!

You are SOOOO going to love your Kindle.  Be sure to check out the Book Corner for books for him and then you may want to go over to Accessories to buy your Kindle a gift!

I am so glad I am the only person living here.  No one weill tell me I can't have my Kindle until Christmas.  Well except maybe Amazon.

 The arrival date in only about 2 weeks but I am hoping it'll come sooner.   i have already see two people that orderd after me getting to "preparing for shipment" notices.

I will hug it an kiss it and call it George.  Ok not really, I am not naming mine when it gets here.

Welcome Tranquil,

I can't even imagine having to wait until Christmas for Kindle.
Head on over to Accessories and start looking for really neat
things for Kindle.  Maybe a booklight would be a first step.

A leather cover for a second step.

The name will come when you meet him/her.

Hi -- Thank you for the welcome.
I received my second Kindle two weeks ago.  The first just died on me, and despite efforts by phone and online, it could not be rejuvenated.  Now with my second Kindle I find it "freezing up" on me.  This has happened two days in a row.  I did a reset using a paperclip in the reset hole in the back.  Is this normal?  I would hate to have to opt for yet another replacement.  Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks.

Title: Re: Welcome to Kindle Boards!
Post by: Vampyre on December 06, 2008, 01:44:38 PM
Mine did that.  I found that it needed charging.  It's been OK since then.  I was trying to use Whispernet while the charge was low and i think that contributed to my problem.  The charge indicator was show i had a higher charge than I actually did.

Hello Abeslol. Welcome to the boards. Hope you find a solution to your problem. I have only had the freezing up thing happen once while trying to download a file through the web browser. After a reset and a full charge everything worked fine. No problems since. Before I use Whispernet or the browser, I make sure I have a full charge.

Post by: DeDe on December 13, 2008, 07:56:12 AM
I had heard about Kindles in mid November from one of my friends.  I have a tiny tiny house (665 sq feet) and no room left in my attic because it's stuffed with boxes and bags of books, which I can never find when I want to reread them.  The books are also overflowing into my bedroom and back room.

Anyway, my friend told me I may be better off buying a Kindle because it would save on space.  At the time I poo-poo'd the idea because I just love books...the feel of them, the smell, turning the page to find out what happens next...but decided to look at it online just for fun. 

And found that even with the price of the Kindle I would probably end up spending less on books over the year than I do now, and it would save a ton of space.  By the time I decided to commit and buy myself one for Christmas, it was around Thanksgiving and the turnaround time went from 4-6 weeks to 11-13 weeks...holy buckets!!  So I decided to hold off until the turn around time is more reasonable. 

Now my best friend is telling me I should probably wait for the new version of the Kindle to come out because supposedly it's coming out next year.  So I'm not sure what to do...I know buying one now will save me money (unless I go super crazy and buy 2x -3x as many books, which is possible) but I would be so bent if I bought the Kindle and a new one came out right after I received mine.

So anyway, I still don't have a Kindle and I've very jealous of everyone on the boards because they have one...I have minimum self control when it comes to gadgets (and I consider this the ultimate gadget because it combines both gadgetry and books) so I don't know how long I'll be able to resist.  :)

So I'll probably keep lurking until I finally pull the trigger...I've enjoyed reading everyone’s posts and seeing how they dress they’re Kindles.

PS Where do I find a post that has all the things new people to the boards should review?  I think I read where to find it many weeks ago but haven't been able to find it since.

Hi DeDe welcome! Thanks for that nice informative intro post.

I realize the wait can be excruciating. I ordered mine in April and it took a month to arrive.

We do have a link to refurbished Kindles here (see top of screen) and it seems like a few pop up everyday. I ordered a refurb two weeks ago (as a gift) and it looked absolutely brand new. A number of other folks here have also bought them and all (except one) have been fine. The one defective one -- the imposter Cubby -- was replaced by Amazon within 24 hours and that owner is now happy and satisfied, too.

As for waiting for Kindle v. 2 -- that's a hot topic of debate. There have been rumors that a new Kindle is appearing any day, but the days come and go and nothing. My personal opinion is that Amazon is putting its energy towards opening up the international market and that is taking precedence over introducing a new version to the US market. Many here will disagree with me. The point is, you can wait and wait for something that might appear in 12 days or 12 months. No one knows and Amazon is being very tight lipped about it. Or, you can buy a Kindle now and start enjoying it. That's what I did.

I too have a small house (1200 sq ft) and my husband and I have periodic major clean outs to get rid of stuff. This year it was the attic and you should have seen the stuff we carted away. Yikes! A year ago we had a major book cleanout and gave 12 boxes of books to my daughter's HS. Now, I love being able to buy all the books I want and not have to worry about finding space on the shelf to store them (or deal with the hassle of re-selling them through Amazon). Books and reading have always been my major hobby--I don't play golf or buy expensive jewelry!--and I love being able to indulge myself without worry about what happens after I am done reading.

Good luck with your decision and glad to have you here.

Thanks for the welcome and the info on the refurbished ones.  I'll probably get a new one because I don't like to read books others have already read...I like to be the first to open the book, major quirk I know...my friend just shakes her head at me   :D

Refurbs don't come with other people's books as far as I know.
Title: Re: Welcome to Kindle Boards!
Post by: Vampyre on December 14, 2008, 03:37:20 AM
Everyone here that's bought a refurbished Kindle says they look brand new.  The only way they could tell it wasn't a totally brand new Kindle was by the colored dot on the bottom of the box.

The refurbs are about $30.00 cheaper, readily available, and ship right away.  The hard part is catching them when they pop up at Amazon.  Harvey put an alert at the top of the page that works pretty good so far.

Hi, Dede -

Welcome aboard!

Looks like having a Kindle will be a definite advantage for you, given your small house.

You have to act fast to get a refurbished (reborn) Kindle, they go very fast!  And, they only come with whatever you decide to send to it.

As far as buying books for the Kindle, many thousands can be had for free.  Amazon's Kindle store has most for $10 or under.

Waiting for Kindle Watch to start for you,

Marci

We have a Forum Decorum thread that you can find here:
http://www.kboards.com/index.php/board,7.0.html

And as for the waiting time for the Kindle, when I ordered one the end of November, it said I would get it the end of February/beginning of March; it's been shipped and should be here Monday.  Don't let the wait times deter you if it's the right device!  Plus they don't charge you until it's shipping!

Title: Re: Welcome to Kindle Boards!
Post by: DeDe on December 14, 2008, 12:34:10 PM
Betsy,

I hope I'll get it sooner too...I posted elsewhere that I did order one this morning (as noted before, very little self control :)) and it should be delivered mid March.  Nice to hear they won't charge until they ship.

I can't wait!!!

Introducing myself, My name is Donna, I am married mother of 5, grandmother of 7 almost 8 (in June). I love to read, it really is my only hobby (well besides the internet). I have had my Kindle for a year now and I read an awful more than I did before and I still have 12 pages of unread books on there! I have read here a little but I will go back and read more now, Thanks, Donna

Fearing I was beginning to dwell inside a Poe short story, I found this discussion board thanks to Leslie N. *Just bought her [his?] FAQ @ Amazon [you should feel the financial "bump" soon, Dear author].  While certainly no pandemic as yet, there is comfort in finding a minor mass-hysteria concerning Kindles in general here.  My problem is the unrealized obtaination of same...  I've now received my M-Edge leather thing to hold it, the cute twistable light to shine upon it, an SD card to extend its imagination, and now the faint hope [thru this warmly funny group] that I am not, indeed, nuts for feeling so unfulfilled. I've even prepared 18 screensavers of my own work [42 years photography] to personalize the new device. For any photo lovers [those are things they wrap words around in tomes sometimes]: garymsullivan.com (http://garymsullivan.com) ...  I also like fireplaces; long walks on the beach; strong, yet sensitive women; candles w/ dinner; puppies licking my face... Uhh, that's for maybe a Match.com profile isn't it?  MY BAD.

Thx, Ms. Mott.  Having the emotional stability of a Zelda Fitzgerald [I sucked my thumb till I was ~13], I often lie motionless in the dark on the floor of my walk-in closet, fearing, as I'm wont, that my plastic wonder is being assembled in the Crab Nebula somewhere a long time ago in the future, and w/ the knowledge that "space-time" is curved... Well, you get the picture!  I'm actually normal [boring, to tell the truth], but I scare children often w/ an odd stare I have acquired from a fiendish addiction to Diet Coke.  As a "failed" [still amateur] comedy writer from Los Angeles, I am pleased you liked my 'pitchers!  I gotta go back to the closet now.  Bye --

Hi!

I'm new to the site and will be a new Kindle owner this month!
As a tekkie and avid reader I'm so excited I can barely stand it. 
I've purchased a reading light and two covers and have already picked out the skin I want, and
had the nerve to email decalgal to request it.

Um, maybe I should slow down?

I don't know how I'm going to tame my inner Veruca Salt when I can buy books
whenever and wherever I want, and receive them in a minute.

I might need a support group.  :)

Welcome bayou! I'm not sure if you're in the right place for a support group. We tend to support bad behavior. The whole place is filled with enablers. You sound like you'd fit right in at the Accessories Board.

I send DecalGirl requests all the time. They don't mind. They just pass them along to their art department. I've already sent in a request for 5 kindle2 skins. Arabian Nights, Night Lady, Her Abstraction, Pink Tranquility and, and...uhm, can't remember the last one now. But I'm sure it was pretty (and probably pink) Oh that's it! Jolie!

Bella (my soon-to-be kindle) must not be nekkid for too long!

Hello everyone -- I've been a Kindle 1 owner for over a year but only recently stumbled upon the Kindleboards when looking for information about skins and covers for my soon-to-arrive Kindle 2.  I've been lurking in the background for the past couple of days, and thought I should officially join the group and say "hi."  A bit about myself -- I'm a mother of three and my two favorite things (ok, aside from my kids and husband) are Chicago Bears football and my Kindle.  If anyone knows where I can get a Bears' logo cover for my Kindle, you would make my day!   

Thanks for the great tips I've picked up from you all so far, and I look forward to joining in on some of your book discussions in the future!

Post by: Ann in Arlington on February 16, 2009, 08:45:22 AM
Carrie, my suggestion would be to check a fabric store for Bears themed fabric.  There are a number of folks here who have covered their 'boring' covers with fabric to make a customized cover.  Vegas_Asian is one. . . .also there's a guy who makes Kindle covers and sells them via "strangedog.com"  I understand he'll do custom covers if you send him the fabric.

If you're looking for something in leather, I'd suggest finding someone in your community that can do the tooling on a cover you bring in. . . .

Welcome to KB!  If you want. . . head on down to Intros and Welcomes and repost your intro there.  Also, you might check out the Accessories forum for cover ideas. . .

Post by: carrie on February 16, 2009, 04:33:48 PM
Thanks for all the "welcomes" -- and the advice on a Bear's cover!  I have somewhat resigned myself to not being able to find one commercially, but have looked into having one made.  Unfortunately, most people I spoke with were concerned about licensing issues (which I fully understand).  I may be attempting to make one myself!

Glad to have found this site, for my new obsession! I'm a 54 year-old E.R. physician, an avid reader (mainly history, intrigue/detective tales and science fiction), who's been sitting on the fence, waiting to buy a Kindle, for over a year. My wife and I both love to read, and we're getting overrun with books, which get reread frequently!

I waited for the Kindle 2, but after seeing that it doesn't include memory expansion or allow extra batteries (a hot topic on many forums, I see), decided to buy a "new sealed" Kindle 1 from eBay, along with a 4GB SD card and a couple of spare batteries. (Combining books, magazines, newspapers, and mp3s, as well as a few favorite blogs, I was a bit worried about 1.4GB limit on the Kindle 2, and during camping trips without AC power, extra batteries will be useful) It should be here in 2 days, and I can't wait! My wife has even gotten excited about reading on this, so that I'm pretty sure I'll be buying her (or me?) a Kindle 2 in the near future! I'm also looking forward to introducing my 77 year-old Mom to Kindle, as she continues to read a relentless trail of new books each month - keeps her mind sharp, and her conversation alive!

I'm already thinking that perhaps our 5 grown children might like Kindles next Christmas!

Hi, everybody!

I recently bought a used Kindle 1 on eBay and it has barely left my hands since!  My husband & I spend our summers on an island in Canada.  We are "off grid" therefore there is no internet, TV, etc.  The Kindle is perfect for me since I read tons of books and am always searching for more.  We only go "to town" about every week or two and there are no book stores so I plan on loading up the Kindle before we leave.  It will also let us save a bunch of room in the car if I don't have to pack boxes of books, we also take 5 cats with us, so that is a real plus.  I choose the Kindle1 because of the replaceable battery and the extra memory with the SD card.  My only regret is that I didn't know about the Kindle sooner!

I have enjoyed reading the various topics on boards and finally decided to jump in. :)

Hi, I've had my Kindle since September.  I've been downloading books from Gutenberg for years, love the old novels especially.  Kept buying smaller and smaller laptops to make it convenient to read on, but my eyes get too tired, got a Kindle and never looked back.  I'm retired so I have more time to read lately.

I ordered a Kindle 2 on Feb 10 for no good reason.  I don't need another Kindle but somehow I had to have it . . . it shipped this morning!

My name is Kathie, and my ID (Latjoe) is what happens when I get my right hand out of position and try to type Kathie  ::)  I'm thinking of naming my K2 Latjoe.  Or maybe Alt-Font, hyphenated names are kind of distinctive, right?  K1 has the same name she was born with: Kathie's Kindle.

I am JP's daughter..see above! He told me he was getting one and I decided to wait for the next gen one and when I saw the notification on Amazon I immediately called him and pre-ordered mine. I am also anxiously awaiting mine, though I am not sure when it will get here. It has shipped, though. I love to read, always have and this will help me not stockpile so many paperbacks that take up way too much room when me and my husband move. He is active duty Air Force, so we move a lot!

Hi everyone -- it's taken me a bit to introduce myself but here I am! I got my Kindle a little over a week ago and it already has become omnipresent in my life. Scary but true. The tiny size tucks in my purse, gymbag, under my arm, inside my jacket...you name it. The skinniness is what makes that possible -- because obviously, one could do the same with a paperback.

Last fall, I heard a lecture on emerging technologies by Paul Saffo (www.saffo.com (http://www.saffo.com)) who referenced the Kindle as one of the most important technologies to arrive on the scene. Revolutionary to the written word, like the iPod has been to music. It peaked my interest and when the Kindle2 was available again this spring, I jumped at it.

Thanks for having this board available for sharing!

I bought my Kindle a week ago, and I'm absolutely in love with it.

In some ways, I like reading on it even more than books even though I was concerned I'd miss the feel of a book.

As I'm sure Amazon hoped would happen, I've gone to thinking of Amazon as just another company I occasionally patron to one of my favorite businesses.

Hi, ya'all

I am new to the Kindle community and am amazed at this Website.  I can hardly wait to be welcomed here.  I recently received my Kindle 2 and have already named it (don't you name your favorite things?) but I realize there is much I don't know.  The first thing I don't know I read here on this site.  What is an Avitar?  I don't think it has anything to do with the Kindle.
Also, I noticed some - Gator, for instance, has a picture beside his posts.  How do you get something like that?  So, here I am - I hope I am welcome - please be patient with my questions.  I am a living example that an OLD DOG CAN LEARN ANYTHING.
Title: Re: Welcome to Kindle Boards!
Post by: Kathy on April 02, 2009, 05:51:31 PM
Welcome Sunshine. An avitar is the picture under your name. You can go to your profile page and add a picture there. Click on the Profile at on the bar on top right under the Heading. Once you do that on the left you will see some options to personalise your name and avitar. On the left you will see Modify profile and under that Forum Profile information. Once you click on that there is an option that say I will upload my own picture. You can then add a picture that you have saved on your computer. You will now have an Avitar of your own. That picture you were asking about is the Avitar.

Asks question here. We don't mind answering. There is also a section on the board that says Introductions and Welcomes. You can go there and introduce yourself. If you need more help feel free to ask. :)

Welcome Sunshine! I had never heard of an avatar until I came here. Google free avatars and they have anything you want. There are no stupid questions here so feel free to ask anything. There are video tutorials, how to add avatars and other tips. Take you time and browse the boards, you'll be surprised at how quick you will learn to navigate. I've been here six months and am still asking and still learning. Glad you are here!  :)

There are many good folks on KB and we have fun. Book klubs, contests and giveaways. We started an Easter Egg Hunt today.

Hi...well I finally did it a few days ago and ordered the KDX. Just had a chance to check my email for the day and found out that it has shipped!! It wasn't supposed to until the 1st!!! DH thinks that I will eventually not use it, but I think I will end up proving him wrong. Books are cheaper for the Kindle and sometimes I like to read them more than once. Sure, I am on paperbackk swap so I'm not buying books, but some books that I want to read are backed up for over a year! We don't live in the city, so we can't use the library. Now I just need to decide what books I want to put on it and if I want to order a cover, etc. for it!!

I'm fairly new to Kindleboards (just a few days aboard) and love the way posters are treated here. It's a relaxing place to read about my favorite gadget. I've had my Kindle only since late February and now it's near impossible to face picking up a paper book. My daughter, a die-hard paper book fan, just admitted to having the same feelings now that she's had a Kindle for a couple of weeks. She was a hard sell, but now you can't pry it out of her hands. One thing we both love is discovering authors we never would have found if we were browsing  in a traditional bookstore. First thing every morning we seek out the free and bargain books. It's hard to remember what mornings were like BK (Before Kindle). It's also hard to remember what I did with my free time before I discovered the Kindle-dedicated forums. I lurk for hours every day. It's a wonder I get any ebook reading done.

Greetings and Welcome, Patricia! This really is a good site, lots to learn and do. Have you been to our area, The Book Corner (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/board,9.0.html)? Many threads with info about goods reads there, including Recommended by our Members (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,7406.0.html) and additional sites for Book Lovers (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,1136.0.html). We have Book Klubs (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/board,35.0.html) where members gather to discus items they are reading, with some discussions lead by the author. Another area is the Book Bazaar (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/board,42.0.html) where our member authors post about their books. It is also where you will find threads about Bargain Books (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,7408.0.html) and Free Books (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,7407.0.html)!
The FAQ (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,285.0.html) or Tips, Tricks and TroubleShooting (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/board,2.0.html) are the boards to go to when you have a question or just ask, someone will most likely be able to help you and and as you have discovered, we think no question is dumb.
Let's Talk Kindle (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/board,1.0.html) is the place to go to discuss all things in the Kindle World.
Next would be Photo Gallery (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/board,10.0.html), where members post pictures about their pets, landscapes, birds or just about anything they think someone else might be interested in.
Accessories (http://http//www.kboards.com/index.php/board,8.0.html) is where to look if you are thinking of personalizing your Kindle. Skins, covers, lights, bags, sleeves and many other things are discussed and pictured here.

It seems like King's latest release has been delayed though.  Probably annoying as hell for his huge army of fans.

One thing that may help you, when you are signed in if you click on the word "Profile" in the bar near the top of the page, it will take you to your board profile page. Then if you scroll down a short ways, you will see a link saying "Show the last posts of this person." Click on that and it will show you all the posts that you have made to this board, and allow you to "Jump" to those posts. Hope this helps.

Hail, Kindlers! I have just joined this community. I am a British book author and journalist, my book The Poet & The Murderer, which Errol Morris calls " masterful " and the NYDailyNews said was " a terrific book, terrifically told", is coming soon to a Kindle near you. In the meantime, I have some other stories that are now Live. I have also just arranged to join Operation EBook Drop for UK armed forces serving in Afghanistan ( and elsewhere). My father was a highly decorated member of SOE in WW2 - so I know a bit about courage. Please feel free to contact me. You can also visit my website @ simonworrallauthor.com.

Simon-

welcome to KindleBoards and congratulations on your book and your first post!  Your book The Poet and the Murderer looks great, I'm looking forward to it arriving on Kindle.  Here's a link to the paper version if anyone wants to check it out.
(http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51MYDS3GZXL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA240_SH20_OU01_.jpg) (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0452284023?ie=UTF8&tag=kbpst-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=0452284023)(http://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=kbpst-20&l=as2&o=1&a=0452284023])

You're welcome to start a thread in the Book Bazaar, the board where we spotlight our authors, for each book on Kindle.  We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your books and website in your signature.  Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, most of our authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows.  This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles!

Thanks for being part of KindleBoards!  Feel free to PM us if you have any questions.

Betsy & Ann
Book Bazaar Moderators


The fine print:
Please add to your existing book threads when you have news about your books rather than start a new one, it helps the members who are trying to follow you.  You may have a separate thread for each of your books.   We recommend you bookmark your posts so that you can find them in the future.  ;)  You may respond to all posts, but if there have been no member posts, we ask that you wait a week before "bumping" the threads by posting back-to-back posts of your own.  And we ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link.  Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead. All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,36.0.html). From time to time our site rules may change; be sure to check Forum Decorum for the current guidelines and rules. ;D

Hi everyone!  I'm so glad that someone was nice enough to refer me to this board.  My two bosses bought me a Kindle 2 for Christmas....this had to be the best gift they ever gave me!  :)

I do have a question for you Kindle experts.  I've looked everywhere for the answer, and it seems to be eluding me.  When you are reading on the Kindle, there are numbers on the bottom of the screen.  I understand the percentage on the left and the location indicator in the center.  But what is the number on the bottom right?  ???

Thanks in advance for your expertise!

The number on the right is the total number of locations in that book. That's what the % is of.

Hello!  I am new to Kindleboards (and Kindles).  I just got my Kindle last Tuesday (I really could not wait until Christmas - my fiance got so sick of me he gave it to me early).  And I am in love!  I can barely tear myself away from this neat little gizmo!  And I have learned so much from reading some of these threads - I have posted on a few, too.  So thanks to the people on here who are so knowledgeable!  I would probably be lost without this site!

Hi, I’m new.

Gave my wife a Kindle last year and didn’t think much more about, other than I had noticed she REALLY liked it.

Well, she presented one to me for Christmas this year.  I have already been thru 2 books that would be about 300 page paper equivalents each and I’m about 100 pages into Shackelton’s “South”.  It seems that I am hooked on this little device.

Anyway…Howdy…I’m enjoying myself.  :)

Hey all!  I'm new here!  I got a gift certificate for a Kindle for Christmas and have decided to wait patiently for the latest and greatest Kindle!  Too many times I've been an early adopter to find improvements and such come out not long after I've purchased.  So, I've decided to wait as long as it takes for the Kindle 3.  I've looked at all the others and it's the Kindle I want -- no one can beat Amazon customer service!  So, I'll just hang out here and wait and enjoy reading all your posts and learn as much as I can!   :)

Hi Fellow Kindle Fans or is that fanatics?!   ;D
I have been lurking and reading, finally joined up.  Received my Kindle for Christmas a bit beforehand.  Love it!  I live out of range for WhisperNet but download via computer/USB.  When I know I will be in WN areas, I add a number of books and while driving, have WhisperNet turned on and my books download as I travel down the road. 

Just discovered and ordered my first Oberon cover in the wine Celtic Hounds and am awaiting its arrival...sure there will be more in my future!  Using a M-Edge Go cover now.

Love how the Kindle has made reading a pleasure again, easy on my hands and fun!

Didn't think that I really needed a Kindle, but after 2 months of ownership, I can't imagine not having it.  I find myself lost while reading it that I actually attempt to physically turn the page!  I still love "real books", but the Kindle Rocks!  Now to make time to figure out all the neat things that it can do.

This site is a user board for Kindle, the new wireless reading device from Amazon.

We're not affiliated with Amazon. We're gadget enthusiasts, and booklovers too.

Kindle, released in November 2007, has a lot of innovative features - electronic paper display, ability to download wirelessly without the need for a PC, free samples, and more.

And while it's innovative, it's not a perfect product either. It looks like we'll have a lot to discuss in the months ahead as the world gets introduced to this new way of getting and enjoying books, newspapers, blogs, and more.

Thanks for visiting Kindle Boards!

Good evening! I just happened upon these boards a few days ago, and my wife and I both received our Kindles today! I think this is the beginning of two new beautiful relationships.  ;D It's already hard not to "load up" on books to read and to pace myself.

Hope to "meet" a lot of new friends here and learn a lot about my new device! ;)

Thank you for the welcomes!  This board is a wealth of information.  I received my Oberon cover in the wine color Celtic Hounds yesterday and am expecting a DecalGirl skin in Monet's Giverny.  Enjoying reading so much more now!

Hi Harvey,  and thanks - nice to be here -- I was very close to buying a Kindle recently, but the launch of the iPad threw a spanner in the works, so I'm hoping to get some good insight into these gizmos from the Kindle community.

Question for Harvey, I think.  Yesterday and today I made about four posts.  I had been at 46 posts.  I was hoping to get my total posts up to 50 to get me out of the Dr. Seuss category into the next one.  However, at least 4 (maybe 5) posts were numbered #47 by Lulucello.  Can you fix this?  I promise I'll continue to post.

Hi Bob,

Your best best is a file in .prc or .mobi format. I would suggest downloading to your computer, because then you will have a backup on your computer. Books purchased from sites other than Amazon are not backed up in the Amazon archive. Once you have it on your computer, you can transfer with the USB cable or email it to your Kindle. For the latter, the charge is 15c per MB.

If you have more questions on this issue, probably your best best is to post them over in the Tips, Tricks, and Troubleshooting forum. It is more likely to get noticed there.

Welcome to KindleBoards. Glad to have you here.

Leslie

I finally gave in and ordered a Kindle last week-- the wait for delivery is killing me.  In the meantime, I'm browsing these boards and I just wanted to say "hi".   :)   The information you give here is what finally helped me decide between a Nook and a Kindle-- that and the fact that every time I'd play with the Nook at B&N, I'd get mixed up between screens and it would freeze.

Hi, all! I'm Erin, my Kindle is Oscar and I've already read three free books on him while nursing my son. My ridiculously awesome husband got me a Kindle for my birthday and I'm afraid I've already spent far more time than necessary checking out skins and covers. It's really fantastic to have this community available to help point me towards free books (woo-hoo!) and tips and tricks for using Oscar better.

Hi all, I'm Lisa and have been lurking for a week or so on these boards. I'm not a Kindle owner yet, but my daughter is. I've been waiting for the Kindle to be able to organize books, and now that it can I'm dying to get one!!!

But.... but..... I hope I don't get thrown off the boards for this, but I am also looking at the Nook. *whispers* I actually held one today. The Kindle is still my #1 choice because of the ability to organize though. The thing is I won't be able to buy an e-reader for a few months so I'm wondering how the recent Nook upgrades and possible Kindle announcement in the fall will factor into my decision.

So I am here, reading all I can about the Kindle. I've already made a friend and truly enjoy being here :)

Well, the good news about Kindle is the price just dropped to $189 today, so now you can get it for roughly half its original release price. You could wait for the newer "Kindle 3" whenever that comes out, but I suspect it will not be nearly that cheap, since they'll probably be loading it up with latest/greatest hardware.

Hello everyone.  I just joined and I will admit at the outset that I have an ulterior motive.  I wrote a book on economics that I am trying to convert into Kindle so I can get it up.  I know this doesn't sound really exciting, but I have discovered/created a new way to organize our economy so that we end all of the problems we don't like now.  The problem is the Kindle system is having trouble digesting the book and I need to get this thing up there.  Any help would be appreciated.  I don't know if private messaging is supported on this board or not, so I'll be checking on this to see if anyone can direct me to how free resource that will resolve this problem.

In the meantime, here's the description for the book that will be listed on Amazon if I can get this done:

"Recessions, depressions, inflation, unemployment, discrimination, accountability, corruption, bubbles, bailouts, bank fraud, tariffs, taxation, capital access, fiat currency, investment fraud, credit, exports, deficits, housing market crashes, entitlement program reform, market crashes, government spending, the national debt – all of these seemingly intractable problems now have a real answer and are part of an exciting and totally unique reading experience that awaits you.  The Fix is a journey into the heart of a whole new interpretation of capitalism and funding the costs of government that provides truly unique solutions to our society’s most pressing economic problems and challenges.  The Fix demonstrates a whole new way of organizing our economy so we may pay all of the costs of government on a current basis, eliminate our national debt automatically and without suffering, and preventing recessions from ever occurring again – all of it is due to the structure of this incredible new approach to capitalism that rescues our most beloved entitlement programs and ends the lack of accountability and never-ending corruption of government forever – all without using a single penny of taxes.  The Fix describes a “New Economy” where banking system failures are not possible, a new kind of stock exchange that will never crash, companies that can never be bankrupt, an end to the housing crisis, eradication of the fear of systemic unemployment and all of it in terms the average person can understand and embrace.  The Fix also describes the New Economy in terms of a new central banking system that puts an end to worthless paper money and inflation fears, a new kind of commercial banking system that no longer discriminates against anyone and operates on a self-regulating and self-sustaining basis, a new kind of credit system that allocates credit solely based upon supply and demand, a new system for generating revenue for government that uses not a single dollar of taxation and a fiscal appropriations program that provides complete accountability and transparency at all levels of government and for all programs and all companies listed on this new capital market exchange.  The Fix provides the real world solutions our society seeks to sustain and create the basis for sustained prosperity, freedom and the pursuit of happiness as we all define those terms to be.  You don’t have to be an economist or rocket scientist to understand how The Fix will change the world economy forever.  You just have to read it."

Help out a knothead and we'll conquer the world - or at least Kindle.  Thanks, CEL...

Hi,

I am new here and have had my Kindle 2 for less than a week (bought it at a local Target.) Now the Kindle 3 is announced, should have known better as a read a blog that speculated a Kindle 3 for August and most Target's around me were out, oh well technology marches on. Well, I have enjoyed my Kindle so far and hope to learn more about it and the things you can do. I have too many real books and I decided that I want to try to buy ebooks from now on to save space. I liked the Kindle because there were more books in my field for Kindle than all other ereaders combined. It also is nice to have some buttons, the nook is nice but I didn't like the touch screen, I have an iPad and iPhone so I am spoiled when it comes to touchscreen response. So hello all, I will lurk for a while, ask questions and learn. Thanks in advance for your patience with another newbie asking the same question for the millionth time.

Scott

Welcome Scott! If you like, you can always return your Kindle 2 to Target, I'm pretty sure they have a 30-day return policy. Then you'll just have to do without until your new Kindle3 arrives from Amazon at the end of August.

Newbie here.

Been thinking about getting a Kindle for ages but the whole having to buy it from the US and the high cost just kept it out of my radar.

The new one for £109, though, brought it firmly back into range.  Mine's ordered so I signed up here to read what all you folks have been discussing for years. 

Lots of catching up to do before my K3 arrives...

Once again, thanks for making this forum available, both for kindle readers, and for authors.

I had an account here, but after crashing two computers and making an interstate move, that acount is for all purposes lost. So here I am starting all over again.

With the low price of the new kindle, I hope to be a kindle owner myself within a few months. ;D

Hello all. I bought my first Kindle the morning the K3 was announced, and I have been using it daily to read PDFs, mainly of antebellum American novels and periodicals, downloaded from Google Books. It's not perfect for this use but it is an upgrade over microfilm.

I've learned a lot from the forum so far and thank the owners and mods for hosting it.

Just saying hi.  I'm a brand new Kindle owner, got my first on 8/27.  I'm now going to be on my second K3 due to freezing and rebooting problems and chose to upgrade to a 3G from wifi only.  People here have been so welcoming.  I've been spending my time here on these threads:

http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,5446.675.html (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,5446.675.html) to look at pretty Oberon covers.  I can't decide yet!
http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,31183.650.html (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,31183.650.html) to decide which Fossil Sutter handbag I need to buy to go with my Kindle and my cover.

There are serious enablers on this board.  I can already tell.

Yet another newbie here, though I started lurking about a week ago. Been wanting a Kindle for awhile now and my brother surprised me by buying me one for my birthday. K3 3G and wifi, supposed to arrive between 9/27 and 10/1. I can't wait for it to come--I'm a complete nerd and technology junkie and love my books as well. Seems like a really nice group here and I'm glad I found it. :)

Hi I'm a writer from far away in Indonesia and I'm new to Kindle board! Good to be here.

I have just uploaded my ebook just 2 days ago on Amazon, so it's still hot & fresh. Please have a look in case you're interested. Here's the link

http://www.amazon.com/Angel-Tales-Jonathan-Iveron-ebook/dp/B004A8ZVH0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&m=AG56TWVU5XWC2&s=digital-text&qid=1288662032&sr=8-1

In one sentence the book is about:

"A scifi-fantasy action novel set in Indonesia 170 years in the future, that tells about an evolved race of powerful angel-like humans who battles to retrieve an ancient artifact that can destroy the human race."

So it's an action-packed scifi adventure book :) . Hope you'll enjoy it!

Thanks!

Hello everyone,

New member here.  I've been lurking on the boards for a little over a week but I think it's time I join the board since I've decided I want to start saving up for a Kindle.  I'm currently a nook owner (please take it easy on me)  but since I've been sharing it, I think a second eReader would do my household some good.  I like the nook and could just add a second one but I think adding a Kindle to it would be fun and would let me experience the best of both worlds.  Hope to learn alot about the Kindle and its accessories around here.  Cheers.

Sounds like one of your files is corrupted. Try removing them all, and just add the ones you need to read until you find the bad file.

I'm a new person, just finding my way around.  Besides being a new Kindle owner, I'm also an author and I'm very excited that most of my work is available on Kindle.  I never expected that any type of reader would replace my love of holding a real book in my hands, but I am in love with my Kindle and I show it to everyone.  I look forward to getting to know more of you and perhaps leading you to my author's page where all my work is listed.   :)

Hello fellow Kindle enthusiasts!

I got my first Kindle back in September and LOVE it! I did buy Kobo first but I did not like the limitations of the 1st generation Kobo. Kindle is (in my opinion) and much slicker, streamlined unit.

I immediately started making my own Kindle books out of print stuff I could not find electronic versions of etc. I also use Calibre a lot to gather news to transfer over to my Kindle. Instapaper (http://www.instapaper.com) is a wonderful tool/service which offers a Kindle reader friendly download of you saved articles as well.

I like to consider myself a Kindle Power User but of course there is always so much to learn!

See ya around the forums!

Hello all,

I'd just like to briefly introduce myself.  I just got my first Kindle a couple months ago and am loving it.  I've already read about 15 books on it.  Yes, I am a voracious reader when I have the free time.

I'm an electrical engineer by education, a programmer by trade, and an author by love.  I've already published a few puzzle titles for Kindle (I had lots of time while visiting the in-laws for a week over Thanksgiving.  Shhhh... don't let my wife hear that.)  I write a humor/satire blog as well, although it only gets updates occasionally.  My readership, all three of them, don't seem to notice or mind though.   ;D

Anyway, I stumbled upon these forums and just knew I had to join.  So HELLO!   :P

Keith

   Hey Everyone...I am a new Kindle owner and so is my wife(although she doesn't know it yet, she has to wait until Xmas). I'm excited to start using my Kindle, but I too have to wait until Xmas. Good thing they are small, they are easy to hide.
   I will have to admit that I was very close to getting the new NookColor, but read that Borders was buying out BN and that didn't sit right with me. Anyways, I hope to get some good ol' knowledge from everyone and some good books to read...Later for now!

New member here. I got a kindle from my family for Christmas and am trying to figure out if I'm going to keep it or not.

I'm trying to determine why I would or should. I am a voracious reader but rely probably 95% on the public library.

The positive obviously is the ability to take the kindle on holiday and not have to pack 5-6 books. The negative I
see is that after looking through Amazon most books that I read (mysteries, thrillers) I am going to be paying
$6 + for books that have been out for years. A lot of the books I read are listed at $9.99+

I know most here will think I'm cheap and don't support the authors etc but right now I'm essentially paying
nothing for my reading habit (other than taxes for the library) and best sellers new releases are not a vital
concern.

So now...I'm going on holidays and spending $50-$100 to take my books?

Not understanding this...  ???  :)

Hello Everyone,

I am a newly converted kindler. had it for two months - an early Christmas present  ;)

I have to say, My Kindle 3 3G has been nothing but the delight so far. It is, by far, the best buy I have ever made.

Thought I'd join people who speak the same language and possibly developing the same obsessions.

See you around!

Hello Everyone!

I will be a proud Kindle owner tomorrow when UPS arrives.  I've spent a lot of time looking around this board and it definitely helped me decide to go the Kindle route for an eReader.

I'm hoping the Kindle will help me read in places other than just the bathroom!   :D

I can't believe all the free books that I'm finding.  I plan on catching up with the classic books that I've never read.

Happy Reading!

Paul

Hello everyone!

I am new to the boards, and have already learned alot about my arriving Kindle 3 Wi-Fi from you guys.

It has been shipped today, and is expected to arrive on the 18th (to Serbia).
What can I say, I can hardly wait to get my hands (and eyes!) on it, but I bet you all could have guessed that.

Anyways, I expect to learn much more from this board and this amaz(on)ing community, and will try to contribute anyway that I can.

Cheers!

I have had my Kindle 3 since Christmas and have read several free and Amazon pay ones.  I like it in genearal, but find much of the human interface needs a real revision.  Menus & selections are often counterintuitive.

My K3 slowed down when I used the World's Largest Dictionary as the look up dictionary in books.  Avoid Giant books?  Some say do not use collections.

Thanks CFTodd.  I knew how to load the picture but didn't realize it is called Avatar.  So you put either book image or your own picture, not both.

I've been researching the different ereaders for some time and come back to wanting the Kindle over and over again. I almost bought a Kobo since it was half price on a going out of business sale, but after a trip to Best Buy to see the different readers in action, I felt like buying a Kobo would definitely be settling.

SO, I'm still waiting and trying to save some money, I've wanted a Kindle since they first came out!

I was really glad to find these boards as I get my "Kindle fix" by reading about them, and reading Kindle books on my PC.

Just got my Kindle 3 a couple weeks ago as an Anniversary present from my husband. I came across the boards here and have been finding out all the ins and outs of the kindle since. I was pretty against them before, as I love curling up with a good book and a blanket and I thought the kindle was more Computer like, but after my bookworm cousin told me all about her love affair with her new kindle I was pretty sold on it. I have been shocked and so pleased with how lovely the screen is to read, just like a book. Perfect crisp print on an off white glare free page. It's love!

Hi everyone. I'm glad to have found this site. I've been writing extensively on ebook readers for a year or so now, mostly about the Kindle vs Nook (http://techwham.com/kindle-vs-nook-and-the-winner-is), and pitting the Kindle vs other ebook readers on the market for my site.

I still love the Kindle the most, although I need to be un-biased about it on my site. But...it's simply the best!

Nice to meet you all and I look forward to discussions. Off to peruse the forum...

Can I just say that I'm absolutely in LOVE with my Kindle!

It feels like a REAL read--you know??? Like Nook with all it's bells and whistles just isn't authentic like the Kindle!

Our future is bright--Kindle and I...it'll be a LONG relationship!

I am new here from Christchurch, New zealand, just sent yesterday for a Kindle 3 and case with light.

I love the look of the light within the case and will come in handy. Am getting the WiFi version, as I don't see any advantage getting the 3G version as most of the time I have wifi access anyway, so don't carry around an ebook reader.

Had an iriver story, which is a very good ebook reader, but love the convence of the kindle, instant download.

The thing I hate at the moment is the wait till I receive my Kindle, which will be around 2 weeks. I looked at managing my Kindle and they alleady have a name and email address for my kindle.

Can I order books even though I don't have it yet and the just transfer them to my Kindle when I receive it?

looking forward to receiving it, and the display looks that much better it's worth the upgrade.
I have bought some ebooks, but won't work for my Kindle as it appears they are locked DRM books and Calbiar it seems does not handle them, so it's worth is limited it seems.

Just bought a white 3G..... My wife wasn't sure what to get because no place had a white on display, just graphite and she didn't know if the white was matte. Anyway she got the white and it is matte (as most of you probably know). My question is can you change the contrast at all. it seems a little dark, way darker than a white paper page. Hope to learn from this site.

Hi everyone,

I'm David and I just got a Kindle for my birthday. It's been a long time ago since I was so happy and giddy about a birthday present. What a cool device! The only annoying thing is that here in the Netherlands, you pay extra fees and taxes, so a US$ .99 novel costs me US$ 3.44.  >:( Well, at least the Euro has a good exchange rate against the dollar right now.

And what a cool site. I hope to find some nice books from indie fantasy writers here, and make some own recommendations once I've read some.

I bought a Kindle 3 at the first of the year. It was a lot of fun and I soon found lots of free books to read as well as buying a few. At first my wife left it alone and let me read in peace.

One day I made a mistake and asked her if she would like to read the  Steven King book on the Kindle instead of her paperback.  She tried it and spent hours reading it.  That was bad news for me though since she kept sneaking off with my Kindle when I wasn't looking.

"Dear, are you reading my Kindle in the bathroom again?"

So I had to buy her one too.  She actually reads hers more than I do and enjoys reading using the Kindle more than reading paper books.

So just thought I said Hi to everyone and introduce myself.

I just bought my Kindle last week and am hooked! I knew as an author I would need one eventually, but I had no idea how much I'd love it! I debated between an iPad and the Kindle App or the actual Kindle. A client convinced me of the Kindle when he explained that the iPad has back lighting that strains your eyes, but the Kindle is like reading paper. Sold!

It does so much more than I expected. I've used the Clippings tool to post excerpts to my novels on Twitter and Facebook, and if that's not the coolest thing, then I can't image what could be cooler? Cheers, Heather Hummel

Posting here is a good start. Try to find forums too that are in whatever genre you're posting in. You'll want to start a blog, if you haven't already.  A twitter account might also be helpful as well, as it allows you to connect to a ton of people, and to fellow authors who are great resources.  You might be able to find bloggers willing to review your book, but that can be a double edged sword as you don't know what they'll say until they say it haha.  There are book lists on the net as well, many of them free to add your own book to. 

Hope that was helpful!

When my husband bought me my Kindle, I immediately made a custom quilted cover for myself with plexiglass reinforcement for extra protection. Despite several drops since then, my Kindle has always stayed safe and sound inside it. I'm now selling my custom covers on Etsy (international orders ok) and would love for you all to take a look: http://www.etsy.com/listing/66​173358/custom-quilted-padded-e​reader-cover.

Hi, everyone! Just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Robert S. Wilson. I do not yet own a Kindle, but I've been using Kindle apps for a while now and I'm the author of the Kindle novella listed in my signature.

I'm a big fan of horror, science fiction, and fantasy and I write in those genres as well. I'm an Indiana native who lives in Tennessee now. It's nice to find such a thriving Kindle community!

Oh, and my first full novel will be coming to Kindle later this month. It's called Shining in Crimson. It's book one of my Empire of Blood series. Scott Nicholson called it, "A big-scale vampire thriller that changes the rules."

Welcome Gator. The Alchemist is perfect on a rainy day. I, too, find it so easy to go anywhere at all, on line at the grocery store, waiting rooms, boring PTA meetings, and read on the Kindle. I'm always surprised to realize how many of my friends say they still want to read printed books. Hope the forum is beneficial. I just joined recently, too.

Post by: CharlieSelf on October 02, 2011, 02:16:33 PM
I was pointed in this direction by a friend who also did a great job pulling my ms for "Digital Photography for Storytellers" into a shape that works on Kindle.

I'm used to paper books: I have written 50. No. I have had 50 published by trade publishers; two didn't make the cut. I have written well over 1000 magazine articles in several fields, though most are for do-it-yourselfers of one stripe or another. I'm a woodworker, used to be an avionics tech on USMC helicopters, and have worked as a gas pump jockey (back when you could do that), and a mechanic.

My "Digital Photography" book is designed to provide an easy track for those who wish to add photos to their words, but works just as well for those who just want to take digital photos.

My background: I've been a full-time professional writer, and photographer since 1968, though I have taken some short breaks, one to finish my BA and another to prove to myself that I'm not corporate material. Total time out for breaks since '68: about 2-1/2 years, nine months of which finished my BA. The other time nearly finished me.

Married. Three kids, all grown and on their own. I am finishing recovery from a left knee replacement, while hoping I can postpone the right knee replacement until some time in '13 or '14. This is the reflective era that comes after the joys of a semi-misspent youth, during which I rode a lot of motorcycles off the roads, mostly in upstate NY.

Currently, I live with my wife in a small house on a couple of acres in rural Virginia.

I'm working on two other books for Kindle, another on slightly more advanced photography, and one on simple projects.

Now, I need to go find a way to put up an avatar for my next post.

Thank you for the welcome! I am hoping to become a more savvy user and author. Wanted to share a good experience I just had when my Kindle screen gave up the ghost. My son got it for me as an early birthday gift, and I really like it for study and reference aids. Very handy when I am already using the computer and don't want to mess with extra screens or "real" books. So my wife contacted Amazon and they agreed to replace the Kindle, but I am an OTR truck driver, and we were waiting in a motel for the new device and it didn't come by checkout time (ordered Tues afternoon, had to have it by Thurs AM). So we contacted Amazon again, and they agreed to pay for another day in the motel. I received the new Kindle in the afternoon, and all is well. Good customer service!

Hello from a blog-neophyte!
Started out with a new novel and a plan to kick things off, this time, with a free e-book download for a few months. Of the various formats,.mobi was the prettiest... a lucky thing, as most of the action (12,000 of 14,000 downloads) was on Kindle. Then a crazy thought (for a woodpulp fan like myself): Maybe,just maybe, I should get one. So I did, and it's a beautiful thing--the feel, the e-ink, especially those B&W images.
I just read Patchett's 'State of Nature' on my new Kindle, and am headed out for a physical '1Q84' for my Murakami mini-shelf, so I guess that makes me a 50% convert. Anyway, thanks for the Welcome opportunity, and what a sweet site.

OMG.  I'm moving soon too, when my house sells, whenever that will be.  I've already packed at least 20 cartoons of hardcover books.  In my basement storeroom I have 3 hardware shelves stuffed full, like 3' x 2' x 7'.  I dread going through all of these.  At least half are paperbacks with tiny print and turning yellow.  These are too hard on my eyes nowadays.  I can't destroy a book, so I'll have to find them new homes.  Maybe I'll set up a table in my front yard and make a sign for "free books."

Hello folks,

I'm completely new here (and new to blogs too  ???) so I really don't have a clue what I'm doing.  I'm a "would be" author, and, having penned a missive a few years ago, I self published on KDP last month (Woo-hoo!).  I did read the intro and I'm not about to publicise the book here (which I had difficulty finding amongst the plethora of books - even new releases - myself), but if I can work out how to start a thread on the Book Bazaar, I might just be able to tell you, someone, ANYONE, about it.

Anyway, thank you for the opportunity, and I hope to be able to spread a smile or two soon.

Hi all! I'm new here, but I look forward to getting to know folks around here. I've had my Kindle a little over a year, so I've read quite a few Kindle books in that time.

Hey all. I'm a noob here, to boards in general, and to the Kindle. Guess there's a learning curve to everything. Pardon me if I step on toes. Just published a short story on Smashwords and am looking for info on self publishing with Kindle as well as stuff on indie publishing. Also anything about book promotion. Hope that's not too pushy.

Well, that's all for now. Thanks

Hi Harvey,

While this is a wonderful site and full of ideas, I find it increasingly frustrating in moving around the site.  I have posted on threads that I can no longer even find to see if someone responded.  I am quite confident that there is plenty of feedback, but useless to me if I have to spend hours looking for the thread that has now fallen into the black hole and nowhere to be found.  Maybe I am just so computer challenged that I can't figure out how to subscribe to the thread....I have hit notify, thinking it will send me an email with a link back to the thread....at least I could find it that way... no such luck, no emails arrive from the thread.  I have tried searching by the name of the thread only to be taken to the web site for that topic, (Go Launchers).... on other forum sites that I participate on, I subscribe to the thread, and then when I come back to the forum, I go in through my profile and find the list of threads that I have either subscribed to or I am following....hit the link and it takes me straight there... if I can do this on this forum, I have been unable to deterimine how to do that...can you help.... because I think this forum is full of wonderful information, but spending hours going page by page looking for a title, trying to find a thread I want to get back to is ridiculous... Help

Betty

You could try the link at the top of the page called "Show new replies to your posts." I use that one a lot.

OMGoodness, like my mom would say..... if this were a dog, he would have bitten you! LOL  yes that does help  I had seen this, but mostly at the bottom of the pages, and it does not take you anywhere, so I think I have seen it, but assumed it took me nowhere. This will only work if there has been a reply posted, but other than that, I have no way to get back to the post after I have pulled it up.  I wonder why we can't subscribe to a thread we are following, so that its always sitting in your profile until you delete the thread.  This really makes it so much easier to jump from thread to thread.... But thank you so much.... for pointing out this link at the top of the page....I couldn't see the trees for the forest!

You can.

Click 'notify' which is at the bottom of any thread.  When there's been a post since you last visited it you'll get an email with a link which will take you directly to the first post you haven't seen.

This site is a user board for Kindle, the new wireless reading device from Amazon.

We're not affiliated with Amazon. We're gadget enthusiasts, and booklovers too.

Kindle, released in November 2007, has a lot of innovative features - electronic paper display, ability to download wirelessly without the need for a PC, free samples, and more.

And while it's innovative, it's not a perfect product either. It looks like we'll have a lot to discuss in the months ahead as the world gets introduced to this new way of getting and enjoying books, newspapers, blogs, and more.

Thanks for visiting Kindle Boards!

      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 (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/board,9.0.html) 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 (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,105624.0.html) and a list of additional sites for Book Lovers. (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,1136.0.html)
     Then there is the Book Bazaar (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/board,42.0.html) where our member/authors post about their books and the Writers' Cafe (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/board,60.0.html) 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 (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,27178.msg505548.html#msg505548). That is also where you will locate Bargain Books (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,105628.0.html) and even Free Books (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,105627.0.html) 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 (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,285.0.html) or the forum about Tips, Tricks and Trouble Shooting (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/board,2.0.html) . 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 (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,231.0.html). If not, once again, ask away! To keep everything running smoothly, we ask that everyone read Forum decorum (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,36.0.html). There are a few points there particularly for authors.  Further questions from authors concerning KB may be answered here: Authors:8 essential KindleBoards tips. (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,41454.0.html)
      Another popular place is Let's Talk Kindle (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/board,1.0.html), 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 (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/board,80.0.html) area. Be sure and check out the Photo Gallery (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/board,10.0.html), where pictures of members, pets, flowers, landscapes or just almost anything interesting can be found.
     Have you been to the Accessories (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/board,8.0.html) 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 (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,10764.0.html) or The "INFINITY" Thread: KEEP POSTING...Ready, Set,... GO!!! (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,10664.0.html) or one of the other threads in the Not Quite Kindle (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/board,4.0.html) 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. :)

       Greetings and Welcome, everyone!! 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 (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/board,9.0.html) 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 (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,124950.0.html) and a list of additional sites for Book Lovers. (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,1136.0.html)
     Then there is the Book Bazaar (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/board,42.0.html) where our member/authors post about their books and the Writers' Cafe (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/board,60.0.html) 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 (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,27178.msg505548.html#msg505548). That is also where you will locate Bargain Books (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,124948.0.html) and even Free Books (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,124947.0.html) 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 (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,285.0.html) or the forum about Tips, Tricks and Trouble Shooting (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/board,2.0.html) . 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 (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,231.0.html). If not, once again, ask away! To keep everything running smoothly, we ask that everyone read Forum decorum (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,36.0.html). There are a few points there particularly for authors.  Further questions from authors concerning KB may be answered here: Authors:8 essential KindleBoards tips. (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,41454.0.html)
      Another popular place is Let's Talk Kindle (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/board,1.0.html), 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 (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/board,80.0.html) area. Be sure and check out the Photo Gallery (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/board,10.0.html), where pictures of members, pets, flowers, landscapes or just almost anything interesting can be found.
     Have you been to the Accessories (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/board,8.0.html) 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 (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,10764.0.html) or The "INFINITY" Thread: KEEP POSTING...Ready, Set,... GO!!! (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,10664.0.html) or one of the other threads in the Not Quite Kindle (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/board,4.0.html) 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 all ~

This is my first foray onto the Kindle Boards world ~ what an awesome community!

My name is Harrison Wheeler, I am recent self-published author.

I am also an illustrator, storyteller, and educator; I have a passion for the arts in many forms, and consider creativity to be one our greatest gifts.  (Next to vacuuming, of course.)

Really looking forward to spending some time on here and discovering what's what in the e-book world.

Hello, everyone!

My name is Charles Franklin and I am a freelancer, book blogger, and (part-time right now) book publicist for self-pub and indie authors. I joined this forum because I wanted to learn more about the Kindle as well as ways people are using Kindle for personal and professional reasons.

In addition to all of that, I am a social and cultural justice advocate, supporter of "green" and sustainable living, and Nerdfitness.com Rebel who is looking to forge in a new path in his family’s legacy. When I am not writing, completing job proposals, running family errands, I enjoy laughing, watching sports, pretending to do martial arts and reading. I also enjoy writing haiku and free-verse poetry in mythology, spirituality and nature.

In any case, enough about me! I need to get reading.

Feel free to contact me if you want to share what you like about the Kindle (some authors and myself would like to know), books, or anything else that suits your fancy.

Regards
Charles

Hello,

I am KayKay.

Please bear with me, because I don't understand anything about these electronic things.

I bought a Kindle Fire because I paid a company to put my book (soon to be books) on Amazon, but my learning process is only just beginning.

Suffice it to say - at the moment - that my books are about Africa.

Now,  I am going to try to work all this gobbledegook about 'signatures', 'pop-up' book covers etc.

Another Jack Daniels might help.   :)

Hi folks,
I really haven't a clue what I am doing, but I bought a Kindle Fire after my book was uploaded on Amazon (I still don't know how he did it, but I've been told I was 'ripped off' because apparently I could have uploaded it myself: for nothing!)  >:(
Now it's going to have to be a case of 'monkey see - monkey do' until I know the ropes.
Tonight's exercise will be to see if I can load the book's cover as my 'avatar'. (that shouldn't take more than a couple of weeks.)
Go safely,
KK

KayKayBee--

Welcome to KBoards!  You can either upload an avatar pic from your computer or link to it on the web, somewhere.  The important thing is to make sure that the image you are linking to or uploading isn't too large.  The max size for our avatars is 140 x 160 pixels (width x height) and the system software will only shrink files so far.  The most common error is to try to link to a file that is too large.

If you need more help, don't hesitate to PM me.

I am new to KBoards. I currently have a kindle with a keyboard. I've tried several different booklights with it and haven't yet found one I like. I'm trying to decide if it is worth trying more or better to get a paperwhite kindle?

tnestler,

welcome to KBoards!  You should probably ask your question in our Accessories (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/board,8.0.html) board.  Lots of members have found lights they're happy with!

I'm new to KBoards and hoping to learn tips for promoting my just-published ebook. The book had 412 downloads while free but I honestly have no idea how to capitalise on this, apart from my blog/website. I hope other authors might have some ideas. I live on the remote Tasmanian coast and it's easy to feel isolated here. I just found your site and I've yet to explore and learn from related threads. This is my first post and I'll go on to edit my profile. Thank you.

Hey! I'm new to KBoards. I was a die-hard paperback enthusiast until I wrote my first novel. I’m doing my first free promotion on Amazon at the moment and so I’ve been checking out the other free books throughout the day. Now, I have more e-books than I ever thought possible. And I think I may have become a little addicted…    :-X

Hi all - I'm a newb here. I've had a short story published to Kindle for a couple years, and am currently working on a post-apocalyptic YA novel. I tried for years to get published the traditional way.  My only regret with self-publishing is that I didn't start sooner.

After taking a look at the author forums on Amazon, I decided to keep a wide berth of forums. But, I realize I need the connection to other writers, and when I found that this forum was well-respected by other kindle authors, and not affiliated with Amazon - I decided maybe this was a good place to connect.  ;D

As the new kid on the block, could someone point me to instructions for creating my profile and signature.  I went to modify profile, but the only options were for security questions and changing passwords.

Welcome, Stacey! I had the same question when I came here not too long ago. You can't modify your profile, create signatures, etc., until you have a few (10 maybe? Can't remember) posts under your belt. So dive in, make comments on those things you're interested in, and enjoy! :)

First post.

Just purchased a Kindle Basic. As chance would have it, I wandered over to the "Voyager Watch" page and, riddled with feelings of shock, awe and inadequacy, beat a hasty retreat; gotta start somewhere I guess.

I have been working on and off for twenty years on a collection of prose and verse, always thinking
that the traditional publishing route was just too much of a low-percentage undertaking. However, with the advent of the e-book self publishing alternative, I am awash with optimism. My piece stills needs some tweaking and coding for this format, but  my book cover is designed and itching to go. I took up computing a few years back with graphic design, web page design, etc. as a hobbyist, which will come in handy in this environment.
This board seems to be quite friendly and well run. I look forward to fully interacting as I get to know my way round.

(Actually I do like my little Kindle Basic Touch, it is so clever and does so many things considering what I paid for it  :D)

Thank you.

I've owned two Kindles, my first was a wonderful old Kindle with a ridiculously expensive cover that I bought just for the light. Then one day my son stepped on it and I had to bid it farewell. I now own a Paperwhite, which is sexier, but I still miss the ole girl I originally had.

Hi, everyone.

Nice forum you have here.

My name is Joe Mynhardt and I own Crystal Lake Publishing, a Dark Fiction publisher of eBooks and paperbacks. I'm a big fan of my Kindle, as it allows me
to do a lot of editing in odd places, as well as read, of course. And I ran out of physical shelf space years ago.

I won't be as active as I'd like to be, but I'll be sure to drop by from time to time. Being a publisher, editor, teacher, and the odd author makes for a hectic schedule.

See you around.

Welcome Aboard Gator Reader,

I didn't know how to put in pictures and stuff in my posts either, but keep reading and trying the directions in the posts, and all the friendly help you get, and you will be able to be a whizz at it. 

You've come to the right place for Kindle Lovers.Sometimes I think us oldies read more than the young people. Maybe we have more time to read. I have to read at least once a day or night. I always have. Books take me wherever I want to go and I am addicted to Stephen King. Maybe I have a dark side.

Hi, I'm Barbara, new author of a cookbook called Sane and Savory. Purchased it on Kindle 7-16. I already asked for help with fixing my internal links which are not working on my Kindle, after I uploaded my book in June. 
My daughter, Celine who also photographed my book cover has been a graphic designer and knows her way around the computer better than has tried to work with the customer service at Kindle. I hope I can get some help.

A cookbook without working links for the Table of Contents and Index is a sales killer!  I do not want to make my readers and cooks who want to buy the book go crazy trying to find recipes of which there are 239.

I am glad to be coming to KBoards and I hope I can find help here from fellow writers. You give me hope that I will find good help!
Thank you.   There is no hopeful face!

Hello Everyone:)

I am brand new here to this forum and this is my 1st post.

I got a Kindle Fire HDX 2 years ago (Wish I had discovered this site then too!) and I am loving being a kindle user...(I really wish I had gotten one years ago.) I had originally wanted the new Samsung Galaxy tablet, but I had a feeling that I would need to replace my laptop within a year or so (And I did end up doing just that!) plus I had a job of taking care of my grandmother that included ALOT of sit down time so wanted a device that I could easily slip into my bag with a lunch/dinner and be on my way.

My mom has had a couple of Kindle Fires over the last few years, so I asked her about it and she really encouraged me to settle on that device, not just in words but over time I saw her on her kindle more then her laptop, reading email, looking at facebook, sometimes watching how to videos on youtube...so I decided that based on price, size, what I could do with it, that the kindke fire was what I should get.

The only downsides to having a kindle fire are: Can't get anything Google play related (Though honestly that's not a big deal.) and the other is is that I don't actually read as much as I should...like I'll start reading an ebook and I'll remember something I wanted to look up, which might lead to something else....see where that's going? But that concern isn't even close to warrent giving this up.

A part of me (The Gadget Kitty part I guess.) still wants the Galaxy, though...maybe one of these days I'll get one. Though I think I'll still own a Kindle Fire.

Hi guys, I read a great book on Kindle, Washed Away: From Darkness to Light. It's a true story about Nikki DuBose, who was recently featured on the Oprah Winfrey Network (that's where I heard about her).  Here's the link to the book https://www.amazon.com/Washed-Away-Darkness-Nikki-DuBose-ebook/dp/B01M25VS8C/ref=sr_1_1_twi_kin_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1478160288&sr=1 1&keywords=washed+away+from+darkness+to+light (https://www.amazon.com/Washed-Away-Darkness-Nikki-DuBose-ebook/dp/B01M25VS8C/ref=sr_1_1_twi_kin_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1478160288&sr=1 1&keywords=washed+away+from+darkness+to+light)

She had a lot of mental health issues like psychosis, sexual abuse, and eating disorders, and even had the ability to see ghosts. She was also a top model, and was raped in the industry. I think that we can learn a lot from her story. It's only 9.99 on Kindle, not on sale yet, but it's worth a read!

Hi all! First post for me, I'm excited to have found other people who love Kindle as much as I do. I'm a voyage user as of last Christmas.

I use the highlight feature all the time but found it very hard to review my highlights. I built http://munger.io (http://munger.io) to solve that problem. I'm now focusing on building a community of intelligent autodidacts who love building knowledge and wisdom by reading. I figured this might be a good place to find some of you (:

Happy reading,
Chase

Thanks for the welcome!  I have loved my Kindle Paperwhite for a long time.... but I apparently need to learn "stuff" I don't know, I am hoping this forum will be the place!   :)

I love my Kindle.  I go for walks during the work day and it's so convenient to have a library of books right in my hand.  I look forward to reading every day.
