Gary (glmoore) | 96 comments I sat on my Kindle and cracked the screen today. The only good thing is...it may be an excuse to buy a Kindle Fire.
Or what would you buy if cost was no object? Nook? Ipad?

Armand Rosamilia (ArmandRosamilia) | 77 comments Kindle Fire... Nook seems to be losing traction in the marketplace quickly

Bobbie | 267 comments I love love love my ipad!!!!

They have the cloud reader as well.

You could call Kindle customer service, explain what happened, and see if they'll give you a discount on a new Kindle. I've seen a few of those offered to people in similar situations on the KindleKorner Yahoo Group. For example, one person got a new K3 for $70 after it went through the laundry with her clothes.

A lot of people on that Yahoo group have also gotten Square Trade extended warranties. It's supposed to cover accidents like that.

Gary (glmoore) | 96 comments I just finished chatting with cust. service. They first wanted $85 to replace mine with a refurb. Then i asked if I could get a refurbed Fire, she said yes then came back and said no refurbs in stock. She then dropped repair price to $65.I said I would have think about it and she thanked me and said if I changed my mind, they would exchange for the $65 when I chatted back.$85 was real close to 1/2 of the $199, $65 is not (I am a whiz at math, huh?). So, I don't know what to do. I bought my almost ex the newest low end Kindle last Christmas and actually liked hers' better because of the screen based keyboard.
I know I cannot live long without a reader. It would be convenient to be able to access the internet from work, the reason I am thinking about the Fire or the Ipad...gm


jennbunny Byrkit | 2094 comments All I can say is I love my nook tablet.


Gary (glmoore) | 96 comments I really want color!


jennbunny Byrkit | 2094 comments My nook tablet is color.


Gary (glmoore) | 96 comments Well, if I am going to stay with a standard tablet, I will just exchange this one. The Fire has no 3g which was the draw for me and the people on amazon forums say it is more of a web device than a reader.
I may drop the money for an Ipad later.
Does anyone know what the subscription for the 3g on the Ipad runs a month?


Bobbie | 267 comments I have wifi only

Ouch get an android based tablet, not an ipad. I have an ipad and an android tablet. I havent touched the ipad in years.


Lauren (love4leo) | 141 comments My kindle screen broke too (my daughter tried to use it for a step stool). I've been using my husband's iPad for a lot of reading and I really like it. I like that it does more than just books and the kindle app is free for iPad. You won't loose any of the books that were on your kindle.


Gary (glmoore) | 96 comments I am back...got the refurb kindle in the mail yesterday. But I still want some kind of device w/3 or 4g that I can use at work. Guess the Ipad is next....
Thanks for all the advice..gary


glenda (ayngelwing) | 1239 comments Hey! Does anyone know how to move a mobi file from my PC to my Kindle? An author sent me one of her books, and I can't figure out how to get it to my ereader!
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.


Randy Harmelink | 619 comments You can just email it as an attachment. Send it to your free Kindle address.

Ah, ok.... Then I just open the attachment on my Kindle? Sorry for being so dense! lol


glenda (ayngelwing) | 1239 comments Got it! Yippee!


Matt Cole (mattdeancole) | 15 comments The new Google Nexus 7 is launching in a couple of weeks. It will be the same size as the Kindle Fire and have similar features and cost the same. I have a Fire myself, but may swap it out for a Nexus 7 because some of the Fire features aren't available in Canada.


Grampy (goodreadscomGrampy) | 58 comments I've had the Kindle Keyboard, 4 of the Kindle Touch, a Nook, and the Kindle Fire HD. The Fire HD is far and away the best of the lot. It is basically an iPad for half price. Get the 8 GB model, because you'll never use 16 GB unless you plan to store a lot of movies and pictures in addition to your books. The 8 GB Fire HD will run $199 anywhere, but sometimes at Staples they also throw in a $20 gift card, so if you've got a Staples nearby, check them out before you buy.


Richard (inexplix) | 38 comments I did the same thing to my Kindle last week, sat down when it was in my back pocket. I am debating between just purchasing the screen and fixing it myself (very technically intuitive) or just upgrading to a Kindle Fire. It would be nice to have a color screen, for graphic novels and the occasional magazine.
