Product Description
Christian Davidson should have been a writer -- or at least his friend Jinxie thinks so. He is instead, trying to launch his own magazine with his friend Tom. His archrival Mike Tyler is trying his very best, through fair means or foul, to destroy Christian's magazine publishing ambitions.

The feud between Christian and Mike impacts on so many people's lives, creating moments of joy, tragedy and humour.

Will Christian succeed? Or will Mike Tyler manage to destroy Christian's dreams?

Will Jinxie get his wish - that Christian will one day write something worthwhile? Or will Christian and Mike only succeed in destroying each other?

Does such a keyboard exist anywhere for the 1st generation Kindle Fire (not HD) in which you can plug into the device's mini-USB port? I've seen so many USB keyboards on Amazon for other android tablets, but they are either:

a) not compatible with any of the Kindle Fires at all or
b) only compatible for the Kindle Fire HD versions

I love my 1st-gen Fire and really want to turn it into a multi-purpose device in which I can use for both reading Kindle books and writing my own books, because it's more portable and convenient than a laptop.

So does anyone know if a keyboard exists anywhere in the world that's compatible with the 1st generation Kindle Fire? Thanks! :D

No, sorry, RM.

The USB port on the original Fire was designed for the Fire to be connected to a computer, not for connecting devices to it.  The lack of ability to connect a keyboard either via bluetooth or USB was one of the major complaints about the original Fire.  It certainly was my major issue.

You may wish to upgrade to the Fire HD.  Amazon will take original Fires in as trade-in.

Well, AMAZON, will pay you as a trade in. . . .you get an Amazon gift card, as I recall when you return it.  On the site search for electronic trade ins, or something of that sort.

Here at KindleBoards, we have a section where people are looking to sell older items or buy second devices, etc.  It's under the heading "KindleBoards Market Place". :D
