Simon (Highwayman) (highwayman) | 4698 comments Welcome to the Goodreads UK Kindle Group. The summer is now well and truly with us and I hope you are enjoying your sun-friendly Kindle in the garden!

We are a friendly lot here and there is something for everyone.

Please start by adding a post to our ‘Introduce Yourself ‘ thread. We are a nosey lot and would love to know who you are, what you like to read (and write), where you live and what you drink, eat, wear and grow.

This thread meanders off-topic quite a bit but as soon as a new member comes along our friendly but bonkers members soon appear to give you a warm welcome.

Of course you don’t have to introduce yourself if you prefer. You could head off to Meet The Authors, check out our monthly book selections. check out the New releases or play some Group Games.

In May we started a brand new area called the Author Zone. This is not just for authors by any means but gives them a place where they can talk about publishing challenges and resources. It is a no-promo zone!

Even if you don’t feel ready to post something you are most welcome to sit back and watch the fun.

This forum is very lightly moderated (hardly noticeable), occasionally we will ask you to keep a particular thread on topic and we have a few simple rules about author threads and new releases.

There are plenty of ebook related threads, author related discussions including a debate on the merits of KDP Select and a place to share your musical taste.


Geoff (G. Robbins) (merda constat variat altitudo) (snibborg) | 9052 comments You know, every month we do this and every month some bloke called Simon is always the first poster.


Patti (baconater) (goldengreene) | 61757 comments Would you like to open the new thread next month Geoff?


Simon (Highwayman) (highwayman) | 4698 comments I always seem to know just when the new thread is going to be set up Geoff.....


Geoff (G. Robbins) (merda constat variat altitudo) (snibborg) | 9052 comments That's just spooky Simon. Does it come to you in a dream, or is that Scarlett Johansen?

Lorraine Versini (lorraineversini) | 8999 comments Hi Ashley, welcome !

My son's recently been diagnosed with sensory processing disorder too but it's all still very much a blur for us.

Hope you have a great time hanging around with us, we're all good fun, really :)


Patti (baconater) (goldengreene) | 61757 comments Hi Ashley! Welcome!

Lovely to have another Canadian on board! Which bit were you from?

Ontario, me.

Lorraine Versini (lorraineversini) | 8999 comments Thanks Ashley :)


Patti (baconater) (goldengreene) | 61757 comments Neat! I was born in Kitchener! I've not managed to get out west yet. Hoping to one day.

My guy and I have been living the ex-pat life for a while. Last ten years in Africa but we'll be moving on soon. Not sure where next quite yet.


Patti (baconater) (goldengreene) | 61757 comments My guy is from Wales. We were three years in Uganda, last seven in Nigeria.

I loved East Africa.


Geoff (G. Robbins) (merda constat variat altitudo) (snibborg) | 9052 comments Hi Ashley and welcome. The madness you see is what you get, but the folks here have a heart of gold.


Patti (baconater) (goldengreene) | 61757 comments Not me. Mine's like a Lindt bunny. Chocolate covered in gold foil. ;)
