My trusty DO1200 Kindle died. I received it as a gift from my mom about 3-4 years ago, and this past week the screen went all Etch-a-sketch on me. I tried the various fixes. I gave it medicine. I tried to nurse that thing back to health. But it was all to no avail. I failed.
Being a good failure, I ordered another one from my Great Amazon Overlord.
Me: Oh GOA, please send me another Kindle.
GOA: What did you do to the last one?
Me: It’s an Etch-a-sketch.
GOA: User error. You broke it.
Me: No, it just stopped working. Maybe it’s a warranty defect.
Me: Hello? So send me a new one.
Yar, that’s the deal. It got here today. It’s charcoal grey, and looks the same in screen size, but there’s no button on the front, like the old one. I do not like change. I want a button. I may glue a piece of round plastic on it so I’ll have something to mash when I need a placebo.
Now to see what books I need to download on it. Anyone want to send me a nice free book or two? I’ll give you reviews. Which reminds me, I need to drop a review on Kurt Brindley’s book. Sorry about the delay, Kurt.
