The Book Corner / Favorite Halloween Read
« on: October 20, 2016, 10:21:48 am »
I'm trying to pick out a good scary Halloween read.  What is everyone's favorite to read this time of year? I'm having a hard time choosing  :)

The Book Corner / Do you still visit the bookstore?
« on: December 06, 2015, 09:44:00 am »
Yesterday afternoon I took advantage of some free time and strolled through Barnes and Noble for a little over an hour.  Even though I LOVE my kindle I still really enjoy browsing the book store and occasionally still purchasing a real book.  I'm also the type that picks a book by it's cover so it's a great way for me to find new books to add to my list.

Just wondering if I'm the only one? There's just something so relaxing about strolling through all those books  :D

Let's Talk Kindle! / Voyage book organization
« on: July 10, 2015, 09:56:34 pm »
Hello all. So I am trying to organize my new Voyage (upgraded from the PW1) and had a question. Maybe I am just doing something wrong here. I like to keep collections for my books so that I don't just have 50 pages of books to search through. I want to have books in collections on my device but not on my device total list. When I remove a book from my device it also removes it from the collection on the device. Is it possible to remove from device but keep in collections on device? I hope I'm making sense  :D Thanks in advance for any tips!

Fire Talk / Fire for Christmas gift - Question
« on: November 24, 2012, 05:59:12 am »
So I'm super excited, we purchased my mom and mother in law both kindle fire's for Christmas, Can't wait till they open them  ;D Question though, If I add some apps and things to the devices now when we change the registration to their accounts will the content still be there? I wanted to put some stuff on so they can try it out on Christmas without having to download anything first.

Thanks everyone!!

Let's Talk Kindle! / Difference between my kindle and husbands
« on: October 24, 2012, 05:54:12 pm »
So I ordered my kindle on release day and received it at the beginning of the month. When I got it my hubby fell in love with it so we ordered him one which arrived today.  Right away we noticed a difference in his screen and mine. Mine has almost a yellow hue to it and his seems to be brighter and sharper. It's hard to tell in the pics but I think you can see a little. I know it's not a huge difference but it bugs me  ;D I'm a little anal about my gadgets. Has anyone else noticed differences like this?  What do you guys think?

So over the past few weeks I've noticed my kindle has had a really bad lag when clicking on anything like menu or next page on the home screen. There doesn't seem to be any delay in page turn in a book just any other screen. I can be in a book, click home and it takes probably 10-20 seconds before it actually goes. I've never had a delay like this. Anyone else have trouble with this? Any suggestions on what I can do?

Thanks in advance!

Let's Talk Kindle! / Can you buy UK kindle books in the US
« on: October 30, 2011, 05:24:53 am »
So my little sister decided she wants a kindle for Christmas (I'm so proud  :D). However she reads a lot of books that she usually buys from Amazon UK. Would she be able to buy books on her kindle from the UK since we are in US?

Thanks everyone!

Not Quite Kindle / Need opinions on Ipad
« on: October 30, 2010, 12:45:07 pm »
So my hubby has been asking what I want for Christmas this year. This is a tough year, usually I have something in mind but this year, not much.  The only thing I keep coming back to is an Ipad.  My concern is that it is going to end up being an expensive toy I play games on.  For those of you that have one, what are your opinions on it? Are there alot of things that you use yours for other than games.  I have a desktop and a laptop so I don't know if I'd use it much for regular internet surfing. Ok all you enablers here, here's your chance, sell me on the Ipad lol


I recently read Whiskey Sour and just finished Bloody Mary by J.A Konrath.  Went to download the next book, Rusty Nail, and it says the kindle version is Not Currently Available. Has anyone had this problem? I've emailed amazon however I'm kind of antsy and was wondering if anyone has come across something like this. I really want to read the rest of these books on my kindle.
Thanks for any tips!

« on: January 06, 2010, 10:21:41 am »
Hi everyone.  My hubby received his kindle on Monday (loves it btw) and I noticed when sitting next to my kindle that his text is much darker and more crisp.  It's a pretty significant difference.  I've had mine for about a year.  Is this somethign that I should call tech support about? Has anyone else noticed this issue? I'm kinda jelous of his now  ;D

Thanks for any tips!!

Not Quite Kindle / I think I'm an Enabler!
« on: December 31, 2009, 06:38:15 pm »
Soo a good friend of mine had been asking me about ereaders and I of course raved about the kindle. Got her all hyped up for it and she told her hubby thats all she wanted for Christmas was a kindle. Christmas rolls around, she opens her package and its a Sony Ereader.  She was so disappointed especially when he told her he threw the receipt away. So after she decided she just couldn't live with the Sony she made him talk Walmart and get them to return it for refund rather than credit. Then she ordered her kindle 2 day shipping lol. It came in Wed. afternoon and shes already almost through 2 books. She is so excited and completely loves it, says she has not gotten anything done because she can not put it down!

Then this evening I finally convinced my hubby to let me order his. He has been wanting it for awhile. He is a very techie gadget guy and i think it killed him that I had a gadget that he didn't lol. So we ordered his tonight along with light, m-edge cover and a skin from decalgirl (as well as one for his blackberry). So am I officially an enabler?  ;)

Also working on the new lady at work lol!

Not Quite Kindle / The Christmas gift I could have gone without
« on: December 25, 2009, 06:30:34 pm »
So I loved all my Christmas gifts from my hubby and family, the one I could have done without is the horrible cold I caught from a co-worker  :(  She was sick for a few days this week, I started feeling yucky about 930 last night and this morning full blown cold. Horrible sore throat, fever and cough.  This really sucks! And to top it all off my hubby had to work today so he won't be back home to nurse me till late tonight. And I couldn't even taste all the yummy Christmas dinner today! Sorry for the whining but I needed to vent lol. The one good thing is that the heated blanket hubby got me is coming in very handy tonight hehe!!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!! I think I'll cuddle back up with my kindle now!

Kindle Accessories / Kindle skins on Ebay
« on: November 20, 2009, 06:54:49 pm »
Hello all. I'm curious of any of you have purchased skins from ebay? I had it narrowed down to about 5 different ones from decalgirl and then came across this ebay ad
There are some really beautiful skins on there. So have any of you ever ordered from ebay? I'm concerned about having issues if I decide to remove with residue.  Thanks for your time!!


Kindle Accessories / Kindle Skins
« on: November 17, 2009, 10:38:10 am »
Hello, I am new to the board, great place with tons of great info!! I came across the skins that you can get for the kindle. I just have a question. Can they be removed without any damage to the kindle or does it leave a residue?

Thank you for your time!
