Snail Mail

After the catastrophe of my kindles demise last month, I decided to splash out on a case for it.

I didn’t go for the official Amazon case on account of it being £31, which I thought was a little excessive, so I instead purchased a 3rd party one. I still bought it from Amazon but it was one of the resellers or whatever it is that you call them, and instead I paid the princely sum of £10 and got a car charger thrown in for free.

Now I know what you’re thinking this is not very exciting James why are you sharing this with us? Well ill continue, I placed the order almost a month ago and still hadn’t received it and what with me leaving for Mexico on Thursday it looked like my kindle was going to be going naked on holiday.

But today I got mail, I finally received my case.


Looking at the letter it’s clear however why it took the best part of a month to arrive.

It’s safe to say that at a first glance there is no reason for my package to have taken a detour via Jamaica, the address was pretty clear on the envelope, it clearly states my address and even more importantly in capital letters states UNITED KINGDOM.

Although on closer inspection it turns out that there is indeed a Hampshire in Jamaica and perhaps that somehow confused the mail man. Perhaps if I’m lucky on my way back from Mexico ill accidently get sent via Jamaica as well.

Either way the good news is that I now have my Kindle cover and am already for some quality reading time in the sun.

    If it was between owners maybe your kindle cover felt it needed a holiday before taking its new post? You do work your kindle quite hard.
    However, I also hope we get sent home via Jamaica!
