I was cycling and a collision happened in front of me. I dropped my bike and my kindle broke in the saddle bag. It was the only fatality (thank goodness) but I'm now beginning the five stages of grief  :(

Dude that sucks.

Would a Kindle 2 help you feel better? Or maybe a gently used Kindle 1?

Too early to think about it, I understand.

I am sorry about your Kindle. I am glad you were not hurt.

Just know that he is in a better place now.  A place where the battery never dies, Whispernet is every where and all books are free.

Oh, EV, that is just awful! I'm glad you are OK, but oh your poor kindle! :'( :'( :'( :'(
Have you contacted Amazon? Maybe you can get one of those 1/2 price replacements we have heard about.

Good to know you are okay. Any way to bring that Kindle back to life? Try giving it CPR??  :D  I guess the warranty wouldn't cover such incidents?

Thanks for the sentiment, y'all.  Didn't fully realize how much I depended on the ol' gal 'til she was gone *sniff*. Bike landed pretty hard on the curb when I dumped it and stepping on it on the way to assist the drivers probably did her no good. Screen broke 'n the case cracked diagonally through the scroll wheel. Heard a tinkling when I shook it 'n and I'm sure it wasn't from me--I'd done that already when the van flew through the air in fronta me  ;)

It's out of warranty so no 1/2 price one for me and no k2 ordered. Loved my klassic and won't replace her with a sexy model--thoughts of it having been a k2 in that instance, with the text to speech? and heard her scream? *shivers*. In the end it was my fault, it was my 2nd brush with death today and I didn't heed the fates 'n stay home.

But I'm alive and I'll shop for another klassic tomorow.  :D

Nope, pronounced at the scene. Do recommend the extended warranty now, with the added accidental damage rider. Hindsight's 2020 though :p
