Okay so I was in a car accident today, that I think killed my car. It was raining I hydroplaned, spun and flipped on the interstate (don't worry I think my passenger and I are "okay," Thank God.) My post is not about that but about Kendle. So after making sure my passenger was okay wondered where my kindle was at (along with all my other stuff, like a drivers license.) My purse was unzipped with Kendle inside in the backseat when I left home. My purse was now empty and the contents scattered. (My hairbrush I found on my roof later.) My passenger saw it in the backseat, so I decided to look at it. It seemed to be working. Later when things had calmed down I saw that there is only a minor scrap at the bottom that you can notice if you are staring right at it. It got a bit of mud on it, as well as, the cover, but that's it. The amazon cover gets my approval for keeping my kindle safe!
