Leslie pointed me in this direction. Here's a podcast dedicated to the Kindle: The Kindle Chronicles.

The more recent post dated on the 19th of December, has a link to a free app. The app being a notepad for the Kindle. I haven't downloaded it to my kindle, but I will post whether or not it works and how to install it.

Edit to add more information:

Direct Link to Notepad

1. download the notepad to your computer (hit save when it asks you to save or open. Be sure to remember what folder you saved it to)
2. hook up you kindle to the computer
3. take the file from your computer and drag it over to the document folder of your kindle or sd card (i personally saved it to my sd card).
4. It will appear on your screen under the title of 'notepad' and the author 'Edukindle'

If you want you can skip downloading it to your computer and save it to your kindle when the computer asks you where'd you want to save the file, but I personally like to the file before adding it to my kindle.

I've read the Kindle Reader (http://kindlereader.blogspot.com/) and Kindleville (http://kindleville.blogspot.com/). The Kindleville guy has become somewhat less enamored lately of the Kindle. Also MobileRead (http://www.mobileread.com/) which is not strictly Kindle related but still useful, especially for free book sites.

My blog isn't Kindle-specific, but it is almost completely devoted to reviewing free ebooks, mostly from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Redeeming Qualities:http://redeemingqualities.wordpress.com

This a great list! I swear, instead of 'Kindle 2' bookmarks folder, I'm going to have to make one just for all the great post on Kindleboards. Or at least a sub-folder.

Love this list - thanks all. I've been following a few of these, but looks like there are some great ones that I missed.

Maybe people like Jesslyn and ereader1 might be added to this list so they'd be found/seen more easily?

I just noticed only those two and haven't looked further for announcements that came after the opening entry.

Thanks,
