It was only in there for a second, and had a cover on it, and at first it seemed OK. But now it is acting weirdly, keeps trying to restart itself and the screen keeps showing that picture of someone reading under a tree. I cannot turn it off completely. Have stuck it in the airing cupboard in hopes the heat may heal it.
I would put in a freezer bag, cover it with rice (the dry kind obviously) and then seal the bag. Leave for a long time, like a week. This is how a friend of mine revived an iPad that had been left out in the rain for several hours.
My ds describes my Kindle as 'that thing that goes in the bath' which floored me the first time - I have a waterproof cover so he's right in a sense!
Alternatively I believe Amazon are pretty good with their replacement policy, is it in warranty?
Yes its in warranty (8 months old) , but I don't know if that would cover it, since its accidental damage. I do have the SquareTrade Extended Warranty though, which should cover it, but if it can be revived that would be less hassle.
