Tragedy struck our household this past weekend, my kindle passed away.....
One day it was happy, bright, and quick to turn the pages. Then, all of a sudden, lines began to appear across the top of the screen, the pages ceased turning, and the screen became a mess of black & gray writing and lines...oh the lines!
Apparently this is not unheard of for older Kindles (I had a second generation) but it isn't something that Amazon can fix. Luckily they have a program where for a reduced fee they'll sell you an upgrade (not the newest versions, but a new to me version).
I hadn't realized just how addicted I was to my Kindle until it began it's death spiral. I was right in the middle of a book! However, it didn't even cross my mind just to run to the store and buy a copy of the book. And, I could just use the Kindle app on my iPad or iPhone to read. But, oh no, I had to whine and groan and gripe about it to Chris for hours.
Luckily for Chris my new one arrives tomorrow!
