To my dearly departed Kindle

Last night, my Kindle – and my heart – broke. I am sad. Almost too sad to write. But not quite.

I put it in my bag yesterday morning and took it with me on the train to Cambridge to visit a special birthday girl. I opened the cover and looked at it. It had the battery empty symbol on it. I was annoyed. I had been looking forward to getting stuck into A Tale Of Two Cities. O well.

I had to wait until I got back home today to plug it in. This I did, at about 7pm. When I looked at it about half an hour later, there were lots of lines and white patches all over the screen….


My heart sank. This happened to my first Kindle. The one I have now is a replacement after the exact same thing happened. I called Amazon up and they can sort me another one but I have to speak to someone in the office when it opens on Monday about seeing if they can do it on my warranty.

Readers, I’m sad now. All the joyous celebrating after completing my first ever Nanny Rhino successfully within the deadline seems to have been forgotten. I am just very sad.

I miss my Kindle already….. (Yes, I have the Kindle app on my phone, but that’s not the point, alright?!)

  1. No, not the point, but put the free version on your PC or laptop, too!
    Doesn’t solve it, but it helps!!!

    Oh no!!! I’d die if anything happened to my Kindle, Ender. He’s my best friend!!

    And the phone/computer apps aren’t the same as reading on the Kindle. Eye strain, anyone? Kindles are AWESOME. Hopefully you can get it sorted out.

    So, so sorry for your loss.

    I prefer the old fashioned book to these gadgets as I know they have a habit of dying on you which books don’t do.


    • The annoying thing about my Kindle was all the books on there that I still want to read but hadn’t got to yet! For the moment, I’m fine though, as I’m still reading Narnia, which are real books.
