I tried to sign in with my gmail.com account and this is the message I received:

How do I get invited to the blog?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!

Lin, I"m not sure what this member was talking about, but if you check our wiki here

and click on "free ebooks" you will find many sources to choose from.

You don't need to sign into anyones "blog" to find them.

True.....but different devices have different controls.

You are better off posting where jgaiser directed you.....

I actually join this forum a week or so ago. Since then there are any number of times I’ve been reminded that I have not yet introduced myself. This should remedy that oversight.

I am a retired senior citizen who has been recently discovered e-books. I have a Sony PRS 600 reader, and a second Sony PRS 600 reader, which I bought as a backup, but has now been usurped by my wife.

I discovered Calibre very early on, and was immediately impressed. I quickly forwarded a small token of my appreciation to the author via PayPal. For any of you who haven't done that, and use the product (and have the wherewithal) I suggest that it would be a wise idea.

As a newbie in this forum I have several questions. Some are relative to Calibre, and others are relative to the Sony device I own and/or the next Sony device that I will own.

As time goes on I hope I will be able to be of help to others as I'm certain you people are going to be to me.

Thanks for the use of the soap box!

Yes...'m a grandma, and 62, but that sure isn't me! I'm too busy finding things to swing my stick at!
Desertgrandma, age is just a number! Always remember, you are only as old as you feel and act!

I love this thread. Its great info and very easy to find (without having to ask). Thank you so much!

A lot of the people on MR can be rather...intimidating when just joining. I lurked for quite some time before even opening an account.

I'm so glad I found this site! I got a Kindle for X-Mas (I'm a book-a-day gal, have been for decades), & your tips, DG, are going to shave off so much of the learning curve! Thank you!

Hey, Amazon offered Diana Gabaldon's 1st Highlander book a week before Christmas & I didn't snag it because I DIDN'T KNOW I WAS GETTING A KINDLE. Do you think they'd still give it to me?

Thanks for all the information Grandma. I have a question. How do I start a new thread on Mobile Read? I can't see anywhere to click.
