What I'm not reading Wednesday, sadly...

I broke my Kindle.  I am so, SO sad.  

It is stuck on this screen saver page.  I've Googled help, and I have tried resetting with no luck.  I think that the screen is broken.  If you look really closely, it looks like there is a lightning like pattern which I assume is a crack (since I dropped it right before it went kaputt).  Youtube had a helpful video of how to replace it, but I have to order one, it's not cheap, and delivery is not quick.

I am so, SO sad.  (It bears repeating.)

Wouldn't you know it happened 2/3 of the way through my 850 page book.  I went to the library and checked out the hard copy, and powered through to get it finished, so at least that is done.

  1. Awww, so sorry! Guess that's one of the reasons I don't have one, I'd drop it for sure. I prefer to hold a "real" book. At least you got to finish your book...

    1. I've had it for 7 or 8 years, so it was worth it. I always said I'd never have one, but It really grew on me.

  2. I am so so so so sad. Really. I love my ereading. Easy on my hands when creaky and I can adjust the brightness and font to suit me. I also don't need a bedside lamp on...

    1. I may try to repair the old one eventually, but for now I ordered a factory rebuilt of the style I broke which isn't made anymore. It doesn't have a lighted screen. Maybe I will go that way eventually, I definitely thought about it, but I have so much trouble getting sleepy as it is, I was afraid the lighted screen might keep me awake longer.
