The Kindle Is Great, But Not So Great In the Bathtub

Do You Use Your Gadgets in the Bathtub?

The other day, I was chatting with another Sugar employee about how they love their Kindle, but they don't know what to do about their love for reading in the bathtub.


You see, the Kindle is certainly not waterproof (kids, don't test this out at home), and for those of us like my co-worker — who love some reading material while rub-ba-dub-dubbing — this can pose a serious problem for any Kindle owner. Maybe in due time, there will be fancy schmancy protective cases that come out to protect the Kindle from water damage.

Nevertheless, I know how dangerous it is to have devices near water but I do it anyway. For those oh-so-important phone calls I can't miss, I'm known to wrap my cell phone in a towel — so it's safe from the spraying shower, but I can still hear it ringing. Tell me I'm somewhat normal and there are more of you that do this? Or am I completely solo on this one?
