I have a crack in my Kindle Paperwhite screen! It was totally my fault, though, so I have no one to blame but myself.
I was traveling recently and decided to shove all my electronic devices (Kindle, phone, iPad) into a single ziplock bag so the security screeners at the airport wouldn’t have to inspect them individually. The Paperwhite wasn’t in a protective sleeve or anything, and must have gotten jostled against the edge of one of my other devices. Or maybe I sat/leaned on my backpack the wrong way, forcing the phone or iPad into the Kindle screen.
Either way, there’s a noticeable crack on the screen now. It’s annoying as hell, but is small enough that I don’t feel an overwhelming need to purchase a new device just yet.
Chalk this up as a lesson learned. Off to order a Paperwhite case now!
