Screensaver packs for kindles

Could you please offer screensaver packs for our kindles? I'd pay good money to never have to look at those creepy images of Virginia Woolf, Ralph Ellison and John Steinbeck again. And if I ever see that possessed image of Emily Dickinson again, I'm going to scream.

I'd much rather look at cute pictures of puppies and bunnies. Couldn't you offer theme packs with images like that? Or maybe literary characters, like Frodo Baggins and Little Nell. Or flowers and foliage. Seashells and fishies. Stars and planets, etc. etc.

Anything would be better than the ones we have to look at now. Bleh.

What they're doing instead is the Kindle with Special Offers (KSO). If you've got a Kindle 2, I think you're out of luck except for a 'screensaver hack' that wasn't too hard to do, and let you put your own pictures on as screensavers (you'll have to research it). If it's a K3, you should be able to change to the Special Offers Kindle, which has ads as screensavers, and a small (5/8") ad at the bottom of the Home page. Not at all obtrusive, some good values (I'm looking at one that says "Our gift to you. Save $5 on a $10 purchase at Amazon.com"), and you can check out and vote for some of the ads at admash.com.

That would be great. I would probably buy them also. Or give us an update so we can use our own pictures as screen savers if they are not capable of doing that currently. Honestly, I can't do much technical stuff on my Kindle's except read, I know most people who own a Kindle are much more proficent than I.

Yes, I've seen mentions on these forums of a hack for putting your own pictures on a kindle, but it voids the warranty, and I'm not very computer-literate so I definitely wouldn't want to try it.

The one thing I absolutely do not want on my kindle is advertising. I sure hope someone from Amazon either reads this forum or comes up with the idea on his/her own very soon. =^ᴗ^=
