In other words, if you intend to leave the Kindle in the cover forever this is a low cost very nice cover. If you will sometime remove the Kindle, purchase a more sturdy one.
Edit: I asked Boxwave for a replacement, which they were happy to send. I was not asked to send in the damaged cover or pay for shipping. I've also looked more closely at the design of the cover, and found that the fault isn't in the design, but in the missing instructions for use.
To remove the Kindle from the cover:
1. Put the cover open on a table.
2. Push the innermost part of the top hinge a few millimeters towards the bottom hinge, depressing some kind of spring.
3. The hook on the top hinge will then be clear of the Kindle, and the Kindle can be removed without damaging the cover.
Since this was my only problem with this cover, my rating has changed to 5 stars, but with 3 stars for ease of use.
I did want to purchase a thinner leather (which this isn't) but it sure protects it. I dont have to be uber careful when I'm putting it down.
Good product, Great price!
Like others have said, the snap/release mechanism is cheap, flimsy plastic. I don't plan to take mine off and on (primarily from fear of snapping the hinge) and I think it'll be fine.
I particularly like that at casual glance it'll appear more like a daytimer than an expensive 'gadget' so that'll deter thieves. Folding the cover back and holding it on one hand is like holding a heavier paperback, you can do it, but perhaps not nearly as long as you would with just the Kindle before shifting position. I haven't done the math, but I'd say adding this case doubles the weight of the Kindle.

I've loved my Kindle from the moment I opened the box, but carrying it around without a cover is not a good idea for obvious reasons. That's why I love this leather cover. Read morePublished on November 17, 2010 by Tanya
