Last week with the Black Friday thingy Amazon tried getting me to buy a new Kindle and will admit I was tempted, but no money.  So didn't.

And, guess what I have forgotten to back up!

Yes, you guessed....

My Kindle died last night!


Just hunted my cloud, and found that I had my Kindle plugged in long enough that it has uploaded, so may have lost a bit, but not as much as I dreaded

R.I.P. Mine is old, but hanging on.

Belated reply, I know!

Hope you back up your kindle, that's my sadness that I have lost quite a lot.

I'm glad you got some of your kindle content back.

And while I think of it, would you be interested in having the audiobook of James reading Ghost Story and also the three 'Dresden & Bigfoot' stories? Don't know if you already have them or not?

I think I already replied in your card - but yes please! Had't even heard of the Bigfoot series.

I really can't wait for the new Dresden book, can you?

That's OK - yes, you did reply in your card and I haven't forgotten, just not had time to get them copied yet, despite having a lovely long break from work. You will get them though :)

I'm looking forward to the new book, and looking forward to re-reading the last one as well in readiness.

I am loving how the story is unfolding - but would still like to have Ebenezer realize that he has 2 sons!!

Argh! Glad it's not as bad as you feared though

Just so frustrating, but Amazon have done the special offer again, so the order has been done!

Oh dear! They don't give any warning when they do that either do they! Glad you've got a back up and at least you can still read on the Kindle app on your PC.

I know, no warning. I read from my Kindle in the evening, went to turn on the following evening, and nothing!!

I am not so fond of reading off the pc as I read to relax, so I have been back to books. Got a chance to re-read the last Dresden for one thing, so something good came out of it!

*nods* Several times I'd thought my e-reader died but having it plugged in it came back. *fingers crossed*

Hope you back up your kindle, that's my sadness that I have lost quite a lot. Hope yours continues to keep going.

I have a Sony and what I meant with plug in was plug in to my computer. So I noticed when it's low on battery it's more acting out than with a full battery.

Eh... and no, I don't back it up regularly. Because I have the books to load with USB and my PC, they are on my PC. And that is backed up. But not my Sony... ah well.

I do upload new books to my DropBox, but not the old ones I haven't read yet. So the new ones I could get back via DropBox.

I had backed some of the stories in the past, but didn't bother latterly ... so hope I can find any I really liked that will be missing.

My Kindle was usually my Spuffy fics!!! Good reading!
