LOL. It's not, but apparently it may as well be.

That could be it. I use my fire mostly for reading books lately, but I do also play a fair amount of games on it too.

You could experiment by removing all epubs and PDF's for a day and see what happens. If it makes a huge difference, then remove only the epubs and see what happens. Then put it back the next day and just remove the PDF's.
That's interesting and something I hadn't considered before. I do have all my books on my device. Maybe I should move some of the non-kindle books to the cloud and see. It's a weird quirk, but I like to keep all my books on my device just in case I want to access one. I may move them as an experiment though to see. I only have 3 pdf's, but who knows, it could be them as well. Thanks for your reply and suggestion.
