    Harvey, I haven't read the whole thread so I'm sorry if someone has already made this suggestion, but I suggest: artisanbread.com

    You can have that for free.

    Best of luck with the new domain!

    Our traffic would probably increase with some of those domain names!

    But, I think we'll stick with our choice of kboards.com.   :)

    ...to ensure our compliance with Amazon's terms of service regarding use of the word 'kindle' in domain names.

    I always wondered how you got away with that - thought it may have been a special deal struck?!

    How about:

    kind-lemon-boards.com

    Gee, am I going to have to take Kindle out of my user name? Gosh, Amazon, that is the name my parents gave me. Gertie Keddle Kindle. That name goes back generations. Can I sue Amazon for using my family name without permission? Can I make a lot of money out of this? Can you imagine if they'd named their ereader Smith or Jones? It would have to be a class-action suit where the lawyers would get $50 Million and all the Smiths and Jones would get 2.5 cents each.

    Wow here we are on the ( soon to be old) board occasionally discussing impending changes to the industry so that we - as both readers and writers- can easily keep up and now we have to change the very home we live in.

    But thanks to Harvey and his vigilance and long term thinking the transition will be a smooth one- good luck behind the scenes as you prep!

    Hey Harvey- any chance we could clone you into a few hundred thousand units and put you in charge of the many companies that need  a better and more efficient 'boss'?
    Imagine what a better world we would have.....

    How long do you have to pay for Kindleboards.com so some speculator won't snatch it up and sell it to people who would use it for a bad site of some kind?

    You all are very kind.

    In fact, I've already pre-purchased 10 years of domain renewals for kboards.com. So it will be safely ours for some time to come.

    Will you have to set up a new Facebook page as well?

    That will stay the same for the foreseeable future. The blog as well. So the only name change will be to the forum itself.

    Basically, Amazon has often asked sites to stop using the name 'kindle' which is, after all, their trademark.

    Believe it or not, Apple tried to stop me from using the word "Apple" in my name when I applied for an app developer account.

    How about   readingKBinsteadofwriting.com
