Hi, everybody!

I've been hanging out reading posts for a while, and am impressed by the number (OMG!) of people participating in these discussions. Can hardly wait to weigh in. I don't have a Kindle yet, but have uploaded several books and read them on my PC -- despite the neck strain. I write mysteries/thrillers and women's fiction, but so far have only published one book for Kindle, UNREASONABLE RISK. More to come, though. For those of you who drive cars or heat your homes with heating oil (i.e., just about everybody), my first book is set in the oil industry. The next one is set in a hard rock mine and will probably be available for Kindle in July. Next up after that, I think, will be a dairy. I love looking into industries that touch us every day, but about which we know next to nothing. What a great way to learn a little bit about them: while solving a mystery!

I look forward to hearing what you're all reading --

Karen

Greetings and Welcome, Karen!! 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. :)

Hi Karen,

I'm still using the Kindlle for PC app myself. Maybe if we sell some books we can afford a Kindle Huh?

Much success to you.
