Hi everyone! I just found out about this board, and I can't wait to check out every bit of it! I'll do that as soon as I finish the book I'm reading right now...  ;D In addition to reading, I love walking, bikes (motorcycles and bicycles!), my daughters, my dog, and most days, even my job! I'm an accounting specialist, and a good spreadsheet just makes my day fly by. (Yes, I'm a geek...)

I love my Kindle. It's so easy to read, and getting a new book is just as easy as can be. I also love that I can set the font size larger so that I can read easily while on my treadmill--that's a HUGE bonus for someone whose eyes just aren't what they used to be.

I'm 51 years old, divorced, mom to 2 grown daughters (23 & 26), and part-time owner of a large, spoiled half golden, half lab named Rusty (I share him with my ex). I'm thrilled to be here, and look forward to getting to know all of you.

Hi Nancygrace, nice to have you here!  We love readers, geeks, exercise folks, doggies, you name it and we all love it!  Got a picture of your doggie?  Be sure and post it in the picture thread.

Welcome to KindleBoards, Nancy!

And I also am a spreadsheet geek.  I think there are more of us here on KB than in the general population, LOL!

And if that's you in your Avatar, there's more to you than you've already mentioned in your Intro!

KindleBoards is a blast, I'm glad you found us--be sure to check out all the cool sections of KBoards.  Do you have a Kindle1 or Kindle2?  I'm sure you need some accessories!

Hi Everyone, and thanks for the warm welcome! Nice to hang out in the company of people who love books AND people who love spreadsheets.

Rhiathame - I'm living in Racine, but was raised in Milwaukee.

Betsy - I dated a biker (who looks very much the bad boy, but is a sweetheart!) who got me hooked on riding, but only as a passenger. I may have to learn to ride and get a bike of my own now to get my fix. Or find another biker to date!  ;) And I have the Kindle 1, although seeing the 2 makes me wish I had held out a little longer!

Anju - I'll see if I can dig up a photo of my dog. He is, of course, adorable, for an old fart.

Intinst - Thanks for the tips. I can see that I have a lot of catching up to do around here.

Now off to check out some of the cool stuff here...
