Hi,

I'm Katja from Finland. :)

As I guess everyone here, I also love my Kindle, which I bought a couple weeks ago: http://twitpic.com/4ycp36

Currently I read mostly self-published books (I'd say 90% of all my reads) and I have a blog where I review them: http://coffeemugged.net/

I'm also guilty of being another aspiring writer.

You can usually find me hanging in Twitter - I welcome new acquaintances, so feel free to follow and say hi. :) http://twitter.com/katjarinne

Content removed circa September 2018 after realizing this forum was bought by VerticalScope -- a foreign corporation with seemingly suspicious motives and a bad attitude apparently attempting to grab rights retroactively. They can have the rights to this statement!

@jabeard - thank you!

@Crenel - I've found lots of interesting threads to read already. :) I hope you'll get your Kindle soon! I used the PC software also before I got mine.

@Dara England - Likewise!

@ajbarnett - I've heard that a few times now. Proves how some names are very local. My name was a VERY common name to give a girl around the time I was born, so I got a lot of namesakes here. I tried to do some research of why it was so popular at the time, and the only reason I've found was that apparently the time our mothers were kids there was a doll sold with the same name. :D I'm not sure if that's where it comes from though. (And ye, I follow you too in Twitter, nice to meet you here also. :))

Hei, Katja--

Welcome to KindleBoards!

My husband and I travelled to Finland a couple of years ago to visit a friend, Outi, who lives in Heinola.  She took us around a good bit, including a lovely visit to Helsinki.  We had a wonderful stay in your country and highly recommend it to everyone.  We visited Lahti and Turku as well as side trips to Estonia and St Petersburg while we were there.

Thanks for joining us here and congratulations on your Kindle!

Betsy

Greetings and Welcome, Katja!! We are so glad you found KindleBoards! We have many areas that you probably will like. Have you been to The Book Corner yet? That's the area for discussions about books (naturally :D ). That's also where you will find threads about books Recommended by our Members and a list of additional sites for Book Lovers.
Then there is the Book Bazaar where our member/authors post about their books and the Writers' Cafe that has discussions about writing, publishing and many other topics. Here is a link to all the KindleBoards authors:Unofficial master list of Kindleboards Authors. That is also where you will locate Bargain Books and even Free Books threads where you can get reading material at low or no cost! Here is a link to get you started: Master list of free & under $1 titles available from Amazon.
If you have a question about your Kindle or it's usage, check out the FAQ or the forum about Tips, Tricks and Trouble Shooting . Or, just ask your question. We have many helpful and knowledgeable people here at KB and we feel there is no such thing as a "dumb" question. Questions about KindleBoards may be answered at Your guide to Forum Speak! linked from Forum tips. If not, once again, ask away! To keep everything running smoothly, we ask that everyone read Forum decorum. There are a few points there particularly for authors. Need help setting up your signature line or avatar? This will be just what you need: Creating Signatures - An Updated tutorial.
Another popular place is Let's Talk Kindle, where all things in the Kindle world are posted about. Be sure and check out the Photo Gallery, where pictures of members, pets, flowers, landscapes or just almost anything interesting can be found.
Have you been to the Accessories area? There you will see information about covers, skins, lights, bags, stands and many other items to allow you to personalize your Kindle.
Looking to just kill some time while you are waiting for your Kindle or if you have your kindle, want to try something different? Try INFINITY Game - Word Association or The "INFINITY" Thread: KEEP POSTING...Ready, Set,... GO!!! in the Not Quite Kindle area.
Sorry for the long post, but there is just so much to do, learn and like about KindleBoards that I just get carried away. :)

@medicalhumor - we're all coffee addicts, aren't we? XD No idea when my work will be publishable. I have the burden of not being a native English speaker, so there's some extra polishing to do (and haven't even finished it yet).

@Betsy the Quilter - oh wow, I'm glad you like it. Tourists always have more fun I think. They know how to take the best out of it. :D

@Mel Comley - Followed you right back! Nice to get to know you.

@ilyria_moon - I'm really looking forward to it. :)

@Ian Weaver - Thank you!

@Colin Taber - Thanks! Such friendly peeps here.

@intinst - Jaiks. Lots of info. I'll go through it, thank you!

@Daniel Leston - Thank you! Glad to be here.

@Valmore Daniels - Ty!

@NapCat - I have to say I am a bit of a writer community addict. Really hoping to fit in here.

@PJHafner - Thank you!

@CameoRenae - Hey! Welcome to you too then! :)
