I guess I managed those specific ways... Actually, I'm very annoyed about the first one that broke--I had it in my backpack while traveling and judging by the way the cracks radiate out, the stupid star-shaped thing holding the cover on to the reader got pressed in and broke the screen. The second time, it looks like I dropped it right on a corner (the screen is only not working in that corner).
Anyone hear anything about Amazon's kindle screen policy? I went ahead and ordered mine yesterday--the wireless downloads and subscriptions are the clincher for me.
