Oh, I'm sure I'm not asking anything that hasn't been asked before, and if I could find my way through the instruction manual that would be great but it's tough right now..

But okay I admit it. I just got my kindle and I really want to kind of "touch base" with other users so I'm putting this post up partly to get an answer and partly to say "HI! I love this thing!"

Actually, there's something about it that really annoys me and that's the way the screen turns black when you turn the page. But I hear that's tough cookies. So. Moving on.

I've only read kindle books I downloaded from Amazon. How can I read other things that I didn't download from 'zon? I hear you can do that?

You get used to the page reversing color after a week or so, or at least I did. I don't even notice it any more.

You can read any non-DRM books from other sources that have a .mobi, .prc, or .azw extension on the book file name. Just copy them into the "documents" folder on the Kindle while connected to your computer.

Greetings and Welcome, xtine!! We are so glad you found KindleBoards, an independent resource for people who own or have interest in Kindle. 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.
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. :)
