4.0 out of 5 stars Blue is darker than appears on computer screen June 24, 2010
Verified Purchase
The blue is darker than appears on my computer screen. This for me was a good thing. Nothing against UNC powder blue but it is not my favorite color.

The cover works nice though the warning about not opening from the wrong side and damaging the spine is disconcerting. A simple google search shows people damaging the spine of their kindles through this simple mistake. Makes me wonder why they didn't include something in the design to make that harder than it is. Simple velcro or some kind of edge clip would eliminate the problem easily without changing the aesthetics or the great design.

The nice cord keeps the cover closed when not in use.

Don't know why they don't offer something on the kindle or on the cover that would allow you to stand it up. I guess most people want to hold it, but when eating cereal, it'd be nice to prop your kindle up for some morning reading.

1.0 out of 5 stars Incompatibility between new Kindle and Leather Cover September 28, 2010
Verified Purchase
I recently received the new 6" Kindle, plus the Leather Cover in Steel Blue. Unfortunately the prongs on the cover do not line up with the holes on the Kindle, so the cover is useless. Service from Amazon was good in that they sent a new cover to replace the old one, but the new one didn't fit either. So they have said they will investigate the problem and let me know a solution. At this stage there has still been no contact and I still don't have a cover. I really want to protect my Kindle and at the moment I am using an old airmail padded envelope. There must be other people experiencing the same problem. Is there a fix for this? Can anyone help?

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes your Kindle feel like a book! July 11, 2010
By Donna
Verified Purchase
This will be much shorter than my rave about the Kindle itself but still want to wholeheartedly phrase it.

If you are at all worried about losing that homey feeling of reading a book, get this cover and get over it and leave the past behind. (Yes, I'm serious, I think this will be the reading method of the future). This cover makes you feel like you are holding a book and even makes your Kindle look like a slim volume. Comes in a variety of colors so pick your favorite.

As excited as I was by the prospect of a Kindle (and I've been wishing for one for years, since they were first introduced), I was a little wary of the same thing so when I saw this cover looking so book-like, I jumped at it. It does make it feel like you're holding a book open and gives you the tactile feel of a book cover, while it protects your Kindle from scratches, etc. as you tote it about.

However, I must admit that I was very quickly switching to folding the front flap back during reading (it is designed to do that but also to comfortably hold open book-like if you like that; whoever designed it certainly understands what that book feeling means to us book lovers) for ease of use and greater comfort. I still liked its booklike feel in my hands and how easy it is to protect my Kindle. When I stop reading and fold it over, it closes with a tabbed band that fits into a ridge on its edge. This gives you the same satisfying feeling that placing a bookmark does when you put your book up for the night or aside for the moment.

So if you are curious about the Kindle but feel you'd be deprived of that book feeling, put your fears aside and just get the cover too. It holds the machine securely in place and makes it feel wonderfully like a book even as you push the next button instead of flipping a page.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dont worry about the smell June 27, 2010
I am a 14 year-old who reads constantly because i enjoy it! Since i read alot, i knew i would love th kindle, so i would also like to have a good case so it does not get ruined. The case is perfect for an avid reader and it is very protective, which i know this because i dropped it while it was in the case and it did not get one scratch on it. By the way, when you take it out of the box, there will be a chemical-typed smell on it, but you should not worry about it because it goes away in about two weeks. I would let it air out and see how it goes for you. Besides that little note, i am 100% sure that i love my kindle and its case!

5.0 out of 5 stars Like my kindle cover September 22, 2010
By Ann

This cover is not only beautiful, but also very comfortable in the hand. It has a nice amount of cushion for the protection of the Kindle and a simple, but effective and unobtrusive closure band. It works very well for its intended purpose.

5.0 out of 5 stars So far so good.......... June 12, 2010
Verified Purchase
I had read the reviews and was hesitant to buy this product, but I did. I just received it yesterday. It didn't have an overwhelming smell as some reviewers indicated. It was easy to put on and the cover folded back easily and was not stiff at all. I had the opportunity to buy the old cover for a cheaper price, but I appreciate the strap being on there so that the cover doesn't fall open while in my purse. My husband bought my Kindle for me back in February and I have put off buying the cover for that reason. I also like that it comes in more colors than just black. I am glad that I waited so that I not only got a cover I would want, but I also got the elastic band. LIke I said I just got the cover yesterday so I can't comment on durability or if it was worth the price, but so far I am happy. I can now carry it with me wherever I go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Kindle cover! September 23, 2010
Verified Purchase
Dear Amazon, We have been pleased with all of your Kindle products. My family owns a 1st generation Kindle and two 2nd generation Kindles. The Kindle is the best e-reader on the market and the book selection is incredible. Our Kindle 1 is still functioning very well with its original battery. Each of our three Kindle covers provide excellent protection for our Kindles, and even though they are used daily appear to be new. My latest Kindle 2 cover is well designed and the blue leather is truly excellent quality. I do like the addition of the elastic closure which has also served us well on our KIndle 1. Excellent products and excellent customer service!
