My Kindle Keyboard is not working.. :-( My very first e-reader....

Yesterday, suddenly my Kindle Keyboard's display was not working..I get only thin lines instead of words and screensavers.   You know for the past 24 hours, I have been so upset.  Actually, 'upset' doesn't even cover it.  I was always thinking that somehow this is my fault and I should have taken more care.  Not true (because I care for my Kindle like no one else..I won't even place it in the floor..I know this is too much..)!  But I felt like that.  This is my first e-reader and I was somehow so attached to my Kindle.  You should have seen me, when I received my first Kindle from Amazon.  I was so happy - like 'head over heels' happy.  I always have my Kindle wherever I go, even if I know I can't read in that event/place.

I know it looks bad to get attached to an e-reader so much, but that's how I am.  When I cried to told my husband that my Kindle display is not working, he said "Next time you buy, get two, so that you can always have one, even if the other stops working".  (Sweet, I know..but first Kindle is no more. :-( )

Anyway, coming back to reality, I am going to get a new Kindle now - Kindle Paperwhite.  I think I am going to love this. :-)  I will update you guyz, as soon as I am delivered this cutie.  I have most of my e-books on Kindle cloud, so getting back my purchased and review copies should be no trouble (well, at least, I am hoping so).

I apologize to all the authors, publishers and other blog tour hosting companies, because I can't review any e-books for another couple of weeks.  But, those who sent hard-copies, thank you!  Because I am going to try to finish off those books during this time.


  1. We purchased my MIL a paperwhite and she loves it. You will too, I am sure!

    1. Thank you, Ruth! Only after I ordered a new Kindle, I was back to excited now..still reading so many reviews about Paperwhite.. :)

  2. Sorry for your loss. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on the Paperwhite.

  3. So sorry for your loss! I have the Keyboard model too and LOVE it! It was my first e-reader also and I love it so much! I do have a Kindle Fire also but still prefer reading most of the time on my Keyboard.

  4. Dear friends, she took care of her kindle more than she took care of me :) First day she was upset about her loss, but for the past 1.5 days, she is jumping to the sky for going to a new model, even she wakes me at 2.30 am and getting all excited for getting a new kindle :(. God please save the partners of all the bibliophiles!!!!!!!!
