It lasted for about 2,388 days. I don’t know the exact date it arrived, but I added an entry in Day One after I broke it on April 6th, 2017 (during my sabbatical).
Annoyed with myself for breaking the screen of my Kindle. I rolled a bit on it.
While it isn’t cracked, per se, two thirds of the screen no longer update.
It’s been fun! 😁
For months, I’ve been using Wordcycler (Windows, freeware) to manually sync individual items from Instapaper to my Kindle 3G + Wi-Fi via USB cable. Now that I have a smaller number of articles to read, I’m going to try receiving new items via Wi-Fi through Instapaper.
I’ll also start trying Instapaper’s Send to Kindle bookmarklet for immediate delivery (Account > Manage My Kindle Settings).
If this works well, it’ll be fantastic not having to connect my Kindle to my computer every few days. I’d only need to worry about charging it.
