Long story short: my Kindle died an untimely death.

Long story:
Not closed completely Gatorade spilled in my bag. Kindle was in the bag. It now sizzles when I try to turn it on. :(
It is going to be replaced but for now, my soul aches. I loved that electronic gizmo!

Oh no. :( I would be pretty upset too! How soon can you replace it?

Sarah

Hopefully soon. Husband is willing to go after work.

Oh no!! I'm so sorry that happened! Have you tried putting it on rice like you do a cell phone?
That stinks. We love our Kindle and I dont think the girls could live without it

This is why I treat my electronics like they are my babies!

I do too!! :(

Replacement will have a cover, a screenprotector, and all of that stuff. I'm not risking this again!

Bummer! I washed my brand new cell phone once so I feel your pain. I still don't own a Kindle but I'm hoping to get one for my birthday in August. I need to start dropping some hints.

There's supposed to be a new version being released, a Fire 2, which goes on sale in August ;)
We're hoping that it means the original will be cheaper ;)

I cried both times my kindle went out on me!! I haven't had any issues with my Nook, but I am sure I would cry with that too!!

Josh asked if I wanted the Nook, but I can't justify spending $249 on it :O
$199 is pushing it, hehe, but we're not out the $379 for the DX, because I won that in a Swagbucks Swagstakes

Okay, Josh is saying maybe Sunday. If not, a little later. For now, I'm going to use my Surround (old cellphone) for temps, to save my Inspire battery.
Sent from my HTC Surround using Board Express

I too love my Kindle. I have the screen protector and cover on it. I think I would cry too if that happened to mine. Did you get it at Best Buy? We got ours there and got the extended warranty on one of them (the kids') and if anything whatsoever happens to it, they replace it for free. Uggh what a pain in the pattooee.

Good luck

Husband and I negotiated a deal. He's picking it up tonight, if they have it in stock :D
It's a good faith deal that I have to follow through on (not discussing details, hehe)

It spilled right on the power button thing. It got REALLY hot when we tried to turn it on. Hot & Kindles is bad, because they're not designed to get hot.
They're also a LOT thinner than Nooks. Like 2/3 the size, in most cases
