Ever since getting my Kindle in February 2009 I’ve been an active participant on the Kindle Forum at Amazon. I started there just to discuss things about my new toy, but I remained because the forum is full of people who enjoy talking about all sorts of things having to do with books.
However, the main Kindle forum got overrun with Fire issues when it was released late last year and the Kindle Book forum is haphazard as to the quality of discussion. A participant named Ed was great at starting interesting book discussion topics, but he wasn’t real thrilled with that particular forum.
So he’s now set up his own forum on the web called Daily Book Talk. If you look in the Daily Book Talk part of the forum you’ll see that there’s a new discussion topic posted almost every day. People are encouraged to discuss anything they wish to in relation to the topic, and any opinion, including disagreement, is welcome as long as people post respectfully to each other. Other sections of the forum are devoted to things like socializing. The book discussions are kept on topic, though some topic drift is expected and allowed.
So this is an open invitation to anyone who is interested in discussing books to come check it out. If you’d like to join in just register for free, pick a topic to weigh in on, and type away. It’s perfectly acceptable to add to the discussion on older topics. As the forum grows it will bump them for people who might not have seen them yet, and most people like seeing what a new person adds to the conversation.
Hope to see some of you there! (Be sure to drop into the Welcome section and introduce yourself.)
