I left my Kindle on an airplane this weekend (post-convention exhaustion will do that to you), and someone found it.
I know that someone found it, because they’ve been using my account to buy games and books. Based on the purchases, I’m fairly sure the person who found my Kindle (which is named Wheatley) is young, possibly a teenager or a college student. He or she likes Scrabble, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and something called Telesa. He or she also hopes to learn Samoan, French, and Spanish. He or she has spent a fair amount of my money on these things.
I used Amazon’s Personal Document thing to send a note to my Kindle, thanking the person for finding it, and telling them that I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange its return.
I’m hopeful that this person will do the right thing and get in touch.
