I’m selling my Kindle…

I’m selling my Kindle. Especially now that I’ve seen how outrageously priced these things are getting on eBay. But mostly for some other reason.

What?

I want to make sure that Anita Rowland’s grandson has as nice a Christmas as he can have given that Anita died this past week. So, if you buy my Kindle all the money from its sale will go to little Riley (minimum price: $450, includes three books which I’ll throw in for free).

Any takers?

Oh, and Chris Pirillo points out that his picture included not just Anita Rowland, but also Marc Orchant, another one of my friends who died in the past week.

Both of these things hit me hard today because this is the first day I’ve really had time to decompress after hearing these awful news.

  1. I’d guess it’s been awkwardly picked up and dropped too many times by all the people out there you’ve been priming to hype-trash the kindle, not to mention banged around too much in a trans-continental overnight bag.

  3. Also as a personal aside, my last text chat with Marc was about our respective comments about the Kindle in the comments of Engadget and your blog here.
