This whole kindle saga started with the observation that usually I let my toys die an early death rather than go through the hell of trying to get them fixed under warranty.
And it would therefore be nice to end this story with a happy, didn't that prove me wrong, ending.
You know ... an ending where I tell you that my third kindle arrived just three business days after my last call to Amazon (it did), I unwrapped it (I did), uploaded all my books (did that too) and curled into bed with all this rain we've been having to read some good books (Yep, that happened as well).
But then when I was reading one of the pages I noticed a slight imperfection in the bottom left hand corner on the screen. It looked like a smudge or something so I went to wipe it off ...
Unfortunately that 'something' turned out to be a hairline fracture that runs right down one side of the screen.
In the famous words of Forrest Gump: "That's all I have to say about that".
