What to do with a broken Kindle (aka the worst weekend ever!)

I have just spend a horrible week.  I am the (not so proud) owner of a broken Kindle.

I don’t know how I did it.  I carry my Kindle with me everywhere. My husband jokes that it’s like a third arm and I would miss it just as much as an arm if I were to lose it.  Well, I was about to prove him right.

I went to bed early as I was deeply engrossed in a book and desperate to know what happened next.  I got my Kindle out of it’s case, but the screen was covered in funny lines.  My blood ran cold.  I immediately went to my computer, logged into Amazon and did a search to see if I could find out what was wrong.  I was hoping beyond hope that it was a software error but deep down I knew it was more serious.
