My Kindle Got Run Over by a Car

      (Note: For ebook and audiobook conversions, see Fowler Digital Services.)


Note to self: Do not put Kindle on top of car, then drive away letting Kindle fall into street in front of home. Also, do not leave Kindle in street overnight, exposing it to rain and passing cars. If you do, it will look like this:

    Kindle - Damaged - Front       Kindle Damaged Back

Happy ending: Fortunately, when I bought my Kindle I purchased the 2-Year Extended Warranty which provides full coverage for accidental damage. Amazon sent me a brand new Kindle the next day fully loaded with all my books, notes and highlights in place and ready to read. Thanks, Amazon!

    Gee Ray, are you saying that Kindle’s are not fond of South Florida weather or roads????

  2. Donna says:

    You own a kindle, I am appalled !!! Does it smell like a book??
    By the way, have you seen Avatar and what are your thoughts on it//

  3. Ray Fowler says:

    Barrie – Well, I can’t speak for all Kindles, but mine certainly didn’t enjoy it’s night out in the street.

    Donna – Yes, I finally picked one up a couple of months ago. And you know what? I love it. I know it’s not for everyone, but for me it is a really good reading experience. And as far as Avatar: saw it in 3-D, was wowed by the special effects, thought the movie itself (story, acting, directing, etc.) was pretty average, wasn’t too bothered by the so-called pantheistic elements in it – it was just science fiction to me.

    Donna – Of course if you’re worried about it not smelling like a book, there’s always this: Smell of Books

    And for those who like to read in the bathtub, there’s this: Kwik Tek
