From the Manufacturer

Amazon's Leather Cover for Your Kindle Paperwhite

Better Together

Our genuine leather cover was engineered to be the lightest and thinnest protective cover for your Kindle Paperwhite. A fusion of soft, premium textured leather and an innovative, form-fitted interior secures Kindle Paperwhite without any hinges or straps.

The cover automatically puts your Paperwhite to sleep when it is closed and wakes your device upon opening making it so easy to jump back into your latest book.

Lose Yourself in Your Reading

Our top design objective is to make Kindle devices and accessories disappear, just like a physical book, so you can get lost in your reading.

We achieved this with a form fitted cover that does not require straps over the front of the device, enabling the cover to wake your Kindle or put it to sleep by opening and closing it, and a subtle woven nylon interior perfectly colored to disappear along with the device. Additionally, the cover is designed to fold back, so you can read comfortably with just one hand.

On the Go

Thin, lightweight, and durable, this cover is perfect for taking Kindle Paperwhite wherever you go. When you are finished enjoying your content, simply close the cover to put your Kindle Paperwhite to sleep and you are good to go. The integrated magnetic closure will ensure your cover stays shut while in a backpack, purse, or briefcase.

4.0 out of 5 stars 5 star product! minus a star for the price October 6, 2012
By Beverly
I looked at many covers for the paperwhite and decided to go with the original. I am very happy with my decision. The PW sits inside of the cover with rubber edges to keep it in place. It's pretty snug so the PW won't have a chance to fall out. Without using elastic bands on each corner to hold the device (seen in other covers), the PW looks sleek and clean. The cover adds a little weight but it's keeping my PW well protected. The magnet function makes it so convenient. I love not having to push the button every time I use the device to wake it up or put it to sleep. Just open the cover and it's ready to go! The fuchsia color is accurate and adds a little personality to my PW. Took off a star for the price..but overall, it's a 5 star product!

2.0 out of 5 stars Good Quality but Lacking Important Features October 4, 2012
Verified Purchase
To begin this review I should mention that I am a heavy Kindle user and previously owned the Keyboard Kindle. On this older Kindle I had a great cover. It had a magnetic tab closure to hold the cover closed. when you flipped the cover completely open, that same tab could flip around and hold the cover open. You could then slide your hand into the inside pocket to hold the Kindle with one hand. Either Hand. And you could easily use the hand holding the device to change pages with ease.

This Paperwhite cover is beautiful. It feels like heavyweight cardboard with a plastic back case. The Kindle fits very well. And there is a fun feature that wakes your Kindle when you open the case. Fun, but far less necessary than the missing features. The case snaps closed, but won't remain open. There is no pocket or loop on the inside of the case to slip your hand into. Ultimately, there is no comfortable way to hold the Kindle in this case in one hand and turn the pages.

I'm very disappointed, especially since I pre-ordered this case and paid full retail price for it. Without these features the only advantage that this case provides is to protect the Kindle when it's in my handbag, and I can get a $15 case later to accomplish that.

I'm a huge fan of Amazon and have been a Prime member for years. I have purchased 4 Kindles to date. But this Amazon product disappoints me. The designers added a cool new feature but neglected the basics. I will be returning it.

3.0 out of 5 stars it sings like a bird... January 9, 2014
Verified Purchase
I take care of my things because I don't have alot of money to replace something if it gets ruined. Years ago I was given a kindle keyboard along with the $40+ Amazon lighted cover. I took care of both, so that when I was given the kindle paperwhite, I was able to give both the kindle keyboard and the lighted cover to my brother-in-law in practically-new condition.

Although I had to save for it, I bought the Amazon paperwhite cover at $40+ because I believed it to be a smart investment. I didn't want to risk any damage to an unprotected device because I bought some cheap cover that fell apart two days later. I also believed the kindlewhite cover to be the equivalent of my old cover in quality, since it is its equal in price and is made by the same manufacturer. So despite the bad reviews, I had very little anxiety over the purchase of the kindle paperwhite cover. After all, there are almost always bad reviews about even the best of products, with reasons ranging from random defective items to the buyer's failure to read all pertinent product information prior to puchase, and also, of course, to the fact that some people just have to complain about something. But while it is true that you just can't please some people, I do not believe that to be the situation here.

This cover really *isn't* leather, but is a type of vinyl, and the front-piece of the cover really *is* incredibly flimsy. I put my kindle (in its cover) in my purse, safe inside a compartment all by itself and went to town on 3 errands lasting perhaps 20 minutes. When I returned home and took my kindle out of my purse, I found that a flap of the vinyl from the front-piece of the cover had detached and was hanging open.

I'm pretty fussy about cases for my eReaders and tabs and for the most part looked for bargains that work. That's how I found my current Paperwhite case that I've used for about six months. It was bargain priced (under $15) and I do like it quite a bit. It has a magnetic closure that powers down the screen when closed, and powers up when opened. Just like the official Amazon Paperwhite case does. But my inexpensive knock-off leather one is showing the constant wear that I put on it and I thought it might be time to upgrade. I did a lot of research and almost went for another cheap knockoff, but then I read the reviews. They uniformly stated that once the Paperwhite was placed in this attractive cheapo model, it was impossible to take out without damaging the eReader. Hmmm, save some money, but trash the device? I. Don't. Think. So.

So I kept searching and couldn't find a better alternative than to try the official Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (PPW) Case. I really like the quality of Amazon's official leather case for my HDX, so figured this PPW case would be similar - and it is. Just to clarify, my case is not *brand new,* but a reduced-price open package (someone may have returned it). I saved about $10 and except for the package not being sealed, this is "as new." So if you don't mind doing a bit of searching and not having your display package hermetically sealed - it's probably worth a few minutes of your time to search and save a bit of money.

First of all it's super easy to put your PPW in its case - and to remove it. Once the case is closed, it's closed. I was a little concerned as the magnetic closure didn't, on first glance, seem as secure as my cheaper one. But it is actually well closed. The case is pretty light and doesn't really add any true heft to the PPW.
