My Kindle Fire is 2 months old!

2 months ago, my nearly 4 year old Kindle died. It was rough for me, as I’d been reading like crazy on the device and had grown accustomed to the old Kindle (generation 2).

Star Wars Aftermath: Life Debt

After the events depicted in Star Wars: Aftermath, the rag tag team of former Imperials, SpecForces and Rebellion sympathizers have been tasked (by Princess Leia, herself) to find Han Solo. Solo was last seen in a non-rebellion approved mission trying to free Wookies on Kashyyk.
