Actually, this was the result of my trusty Airedale looking for the On switch on my Kindle. I'd like to say that it (the Kindle) took a licking but kept on working, but the poor thing seems to have suffered a lobotomy. I wonder how long it would have taken the pooch to similarly destroy all the actual books represented in my Kindle. He seems to have a thing for hand-held electronic devices -- three TV remotes and two cordless telephones -- oh, yeah, and the front of the satellite receiver and assorted DVD's and tapes. I'm not sure if Amazon's warranty covering defects is restricted to the device itself.
