I take it youve done the hold power button for 30 seconds thing? Fixes most things ;)

I did try that, but it doesn't seem to be responding. It's almost like it's run out of battery but doesn't want to re-charge.

Definitely a stupid question but you've tried a different charger?
And if you can get any power in it at all have you tried a factory reset?

I have not had any luck finding a charger that actually works!

The Kindle came with a USB cable and, even though the cable is a standard type (the same as is used for most Android phones), I've never been able to get it to charge unless I use the exact cable that it came with.

But that doesn't seem to be working now.

I'm not sure how to trigger a factory reset without accessing the software? Is there a physical reset button?

I think I have a spare eink Kobo in a box at my parents you can have if you wanted. If your books are all amazon bought you need to convert them though so that’s a small pain.

Thank you for the kind offer, eVoL, but I am happy to use the Kindle app on my Android phone until I can figure out what's up with the Kindle.

In other news, I was just about to start reading the first Rigante book today, Sword in the Storm, when I suddenly realised I enjoyed The Stones of Power series so much I didn't want to give up before it is over. As such, I began the first Jon Shannow book, Wolf in Shadow, instead.

Recently read 'The First and The Last', Adolf Galland's memoirs from WW2 which was fascinating. Don't know what I am going to tackle next. I feel like something new. Maybe a different genre. I shall ponder.

Wolf in Shadow is great! I'm very glad I chose to keep reading in this series.

After Ancient Greece and Arthurian Britain, I wasn't sure if I'd enjoy a "post-apocalypse" setting, but actually I love it, and Jon Shannow is an awesome character -- the best Gemmell character so far, I dare say.
