I have a confession…
I love my Kindle.
Don’t get me wrong, I still buy as many hard copies as I do e-copies of books. But my Kindle is a full library that fits neatly in my purse, without the threat of late fines. 🙂
Last weekend, a terrible tragedy befell my adored Kindle. The 32oz. bottle of water, in my purse. opened while I was at the movie theater watching the movie The Muppets (wonderful by the way). Unleashing half its contents in my purse. The liquid pooling in the bottom of my purse, soaking my Kindle. I was annoyed, alright down right angry, about it. I sat through the movie with a growing wet spot on the thighs of my jeans. It’s a good thing the movie was thoroughly enjoyable.
- Water and Kindles do not mix.
- Sitting buried in a bag of rice can not save the Kindle.
- Water voids the 1 year warranty – BUT, they will replace the Kindle for $85.
- Keep my water bottle out of my purse.
Customer Service at Amazon were kind and wonderful, my new Kindle will arrive today. My only regret is that I’ll lose Sherrilyn Kenyon‘s autograph (I did have her sign my books), when I send the sadly departed Kindle back.
I’ll always be a reader in two worlds – e-copy and hard copy. As I continue my journey toward publication, I fulling intend on participating in both worlds.
