My name is Woelf Dietrich. I love to write and read although I sometimes seem to read more than I write. My wife bought me a Kindle this past Christmas. It's my first one. I used to just read ebooks on my iPhone, but I have to say, reading on a Kindle is so much better. I read across genres, but if I look at my to-read list it's populated by fantasy and the various sub-genres of fantasy. I pondered joining Kindle Boards for a while now, and after hearing so many good things said about the forum I decided to take the leap and join. Thank you for having me and I hope to have many great conversations with you guys about anything related to anything, if it includes books and authors.  :p

Greetings and Welcome, Woelf!! 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 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! 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 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. Further questions from authors concerning KB may be answered here: Authors:8 essential KindleBoards tips.
Another popular place is Let's Talk Kindle, 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 area. 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!!! or one of the other threads 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. :)

Welcome! Don't worry, you'll get the hang of it soon enough. Spend some time looking at other posts and don't be afraid to ask questions. The Kindle Boards help staff is great!

Good Luck!

Hi Wo3lf!

I'm also new around these parts and joined today. But am getting the hang of it and making friends already! It appears that this is a great board/community. Very happy to have taken the jump and joined. 

Am a fan of both sci-fi and fantasy, reading and writing. And I'm loving my Kindles (Yes, plural.) Paperwhite and Fire HD are simply fab! 

Look forward to your posts. 

Welcome!

Marty
