Kindle! Nooooooooooooo!!!

My Kindle froze up on me. Apparently this is a common thing (the way iPods freeze up). I found references all over the place when I searched on it...

But nothing worked to unfreeze it. I finally had to call Customer Service and get it replaced. (sigh)

The bad thing? Normally it would ship in two days, but because of Christmas, it's on back order. I won't have it until January 12 or 13, at the earliest...

I'd hate to say that I'm addicted to my Kindle, but I may as well be honest here. I'm addicted to my Kindle. While at work last night, I had it playing soothing music while I read "The Virginian" during those periods where I had to wait (and wait and wait) while doing software installation and other IT junk. I certainly made the process more pleasant for me!

I've messed with it for a couple hours this morning, too -- even after talking to Amazon. Silly, I know, but I just can't seem to accept the fact that I'll be Kindle-less for more than a week! (big sigh)

Okay, I have a huge list to do and want a short nap before starting. So I'm giving up on the Kindle and going back to bed for now...

ETA: Hey, guys! There ARE resolutions for most incidents. In most of the cases I saw, the fixes that Kindle suggests take care of the problem quite easily. I've no idea why I'm not one of these, but I think I'm just unlucky here... And I can't WAIT to have my Kindle back again (well, the new one) -- and start using it like crazy all over again. (smile) So, seriously, no worries!
