Red face New to the forums

A nice young man on the bus tonight told me about these forums! I've had my Kindle now since early January, a birthday present to myself, and I love it! I have five pages of books on it, not including the ones I've read in the past couple months and deleted. I did have our local paper on it for a week or so, but didn't like how it navigated so I unsubscribed. If they change it in the future, sure, because it was much more convenient.

Introduction done, I'm going to surf the threads here now!

Welcome to MR, LadyWriter. How nice to know that you were told about our forums.

I just went to get the link to "free" Kindle books from the Kindle forum and saw that you have already found it.

The below links have information that may help in understanding your Kindle.

You can even explore using Calibre and Kovid, the creator, frequents the forums here. We even have a dedicated Calibre forum.

Did you know that MR has free ebooks? They have been beautifully handcrafted by some very dedicated MR members.

For your Kindle..Mobi / prc format ebooks
