My family and I are all voracious bibliophiles.
Personally, I don't care either way if the book is the old-school paper kind or a good e-book. I love to read. Full stop.
I have been loving the free Kindle for iPad app because I can store dozens of books on my iPad and make notes and add highlights and do all the things I like to do when I'm reading a wonderfully informational or entertaining volume.
But sadly, my iPad with its digital screen is all but impossible to read in full sunshine.
I spend a lot of time in full sunshine. And I'm just spoiled enough now that I resent carrying big, heavy books to the beach, but that's not important right now.
So, Eric got me an Amazon Kindle (with built in Wi-Fi, thankyouverymuch).
It has an honest-to-goodness-reads-like-real-paper display. And it has been my best and most reliable Beach Buddy all summer.
But somehow, this past week when we were cruising, I must have dropped it or something, because suddenly my beautiful I-swear-it's-just-like-real-pages-in-a-real-book Kindle began looking more like an Etch-a-Sketch.
*insert really sad face here*
So I called Amazon.com customer service and told them about my new Etch-a-Sketchy Kindle and the great sadness it has caused me and inquired as to how would I go about replacing it.
"We'll send out a new one today and you just mail back the damaged one."
What? They actually said this. *hand on heart*
This conversation took place on Tuesday morning.
My new Kindle arrived on Wednesday morning. Shut. UP.
That's what I call customer service!
So, I'm giving an unsolicited shout out to Amazon.com as a big, fat, Cuban GRACIAS.
I'm taking extra good care of my new Kindle with its I-swear-it's-exactly-like-real-paper-no-glare screen.
Because now it looks like they're starting to keep score. ;-)
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you, Amazon. You so seriously ROCK!
Do you have a Kindle? Do you love it as much as I love mine? Tell me.
