Hi! Welcome! Sweetie, you are gonna wonder why it ever took you so long to jump on the e-reading bandwagon! I hope your Kindle arrives quickly, and that you have a wonderful relationship with it.

There's tons of Kindle users here, so just jump on in and start reading and posting. Also, tons of free books at this website to download.

Hi there Dixie Gal....thanks for your warm welcome! At the ripe old age of 59, I've been a confirmed and voracious 'paper' reader all my life, getting much satisfaction from just the feel of a book in my hands. I never thought I would ever want an e-book......but the thought of having 200 plus books at my fingertips is just too tempting. I'm sure I'll love it, did a lot of research and found the con's didn't really apply to me......I just want to download and read books! I am really interested in downloading free copies of my favorite authors, Agatha Christie, James Michener, and many others. This will be another learning lesson for me. Unfortuantely, I also know myself well enough to realize that now, waiting in line at the library for my turn of the newest Chiaverini or Cornwall is about to come to an end. Instant gratification, here I come!

Hi desertgrandma and welcome to the Forum. I used to feel like you about print books but the Sony with all its convenience has really changed my mind. Be sure and let us know how you like your Kindle when you get it.

Hiya! I love your username Do check out the books here (under, BOOKS, surprise!). Select MOBIPOCKET as the type (unless they list Kindle there too by now). There are a number of old books that are still quite good. Enjoy! I love my Kindle.

Hello DesertGrandma and welcome to MobileRead. I signed up here in January just about the time I placed the order for my Kindle. It arrived in mid-February and I've been thrilled with it since. Not only can you purchase books from Amazon, but anything in Mobipocket format (well, those without DRM protection) can be read on your Kindle.

For classics, there are many (and I do mean Many) books available for download (free, no less) here at MobileRead. You can jump straight to the book listings at http://www.mobileread.com/forums/ebooks.php or click the "E-books" link in the blue menu bar under the logo.

Then, if you didn't find enough books to read, amble on over to Feedbooks (http://www.feedbooks.com) and ManyBooks (http://manybooks.net) and grab even more free books. If you're a fan of pulp fiction, one of the best sources is Munsey's at http://www.blackmask.com/

Oh yes, I forgot to mention two sources of excellent science fiction. First, Baen offers many of their titles for free at http://www.baen.com -- and you can buy even more Baen titles at WebScription eBooks (http://www.webscription.net). Steve Jordan is an SF author who frequents these forums. He offers one of his titles for free at his website -- http://www.stevejordanbooks.com/ -- and an amazingly low-priced bundle of the rest of his novels.

From time to time, you'll find postings about special deals and free books to be found elsewhere. You'll want to keep hanging around here at MobileRead. Be sure to let us know how you like your Kindle when it gets there.
