In Which My Kindle Shits the Bed

Yesterday my Kindle ceased to function, for no apparent reason. And, by ceased to function, I mean; the screen went black and gray and wavy and nothing I did to restore it worked. When I Googled the problem I discovered that the screen failure was not at all uncommon so I called Amazon and, after unsuccessfully attempting to restore the screen using the techniques described by the technician; was promised a prompt replacement of the unit.
I’m pleased with Amazon’s customer service but a little bummed that a piece of-not inexpensive- electronic technology only lasted eight months before shitting the bed. Hopefully the next one will work out better.

If not, I might be forced to go back to reading actual paper books and like, turning pages and shit.

Shudder.

Great, I got one for Christmas, so I'll be coming up on the 8 month mark shortly.
