3.0 out of 5 stars So far, so good - maybe not June 27, 2011
By Jaime
I received my new "updated" kindle cover about a month ago after having problems with the original cover purchased in September 2010. My kindle had been re-booting and losing pages for no apparent reason. I searched online and discovered that the original covers had been removed by Amazon, but I was not contacted to notify me that the product was defective. I phoned Amazon about 5 weeks ago and was told they could send me the new and improved version. I was assured that it had been tested and does not have the same problems that the original had. My search revealed that the metal clips that insert into the side of the kindle could be touching the electronics and causing the malfunctions. My apple green cover arrived in 2 days.

This new cover looks exactly like my old one except that the metal clips are now gold colored. They still insert into the left side of the kindle as before. I do really like the design. My kindle is secured to the case and cannot fall out. I like the soft grey interior and I like that I can fold the cover back on itself to hold the kindle with one hand. It protects it very well - and my last cover was very sturdy and looked like new when I threw it out. I was disappointed to get rid of something that looked like new still - but I'm sure this improved version will stand up just as well. The elastic is also a handy feature to hold the cover closed when carrying it in my purse. It is a stiff case and I usually clip on my Mighty Bright booklight which works great (and is green to match perfectly). I prefer this method to buying the cover with the built in light as I want my kindle as thin and lightweight as possible. So far I haven't had any problems with the operation of the kindle - so far so good.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed with external strap June 19, 2011
Verified Purchase
I am also disappointed in the strap. It snapped on me also after a short time. The case itself is really strong and
it protects the kindle, but what good is it without being able to secure with the elastic.

3.0 out of 5 stars Doesn' provide THAT much protection June 30, 2011
By Noelle
While I enjoy the book-feel of this cover and the light is great I have to say I was disappointed when I found my Kindle screen cracked. I took it on a road trip and had it in a bag and assumed it was adequately protected.

Not sure if there is anything else out there that can take more of a beating. I was very confident in it until this past weekend. I plan on using it for my next Kindle and read old fashioned books when road tripping. I think the cracked screen speaks more to the delicate Kindle than the cover. Would have rated it higher if I didn't have to buy another Kindle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great cover November 6, 2011
By nkooi1

Beautiful, stylish cover and I love the green colour. Not heavy, but provides protection for the kindle. I find it very easy to handle and it is great to be able to fold the cover over and sevure it with the elastic.

The perfect complement to the kindle

5.0 out of 5 stars Great cover with a great price! September 4, 2011
Verified Purchase
I have been searching long for a cover for my Kindle. I knew that I wanted one that 1) would easily protect my Kindle 2) would allow me to easily use all of the buttons and 3) would look stylish but wouldn't hurt my purse too much. This cover is all of that and more. Being leather, it offers my Kindle a tough exterior, but the way that the cover is designed, it also allows me to use all of the buttons on my Kindle. So many other covers cover up some of the buttons or keys, but this does not at all. Also, I was able to get it in one of my favorite colors (apple green)! There are no pockets, but that's just fine since I wouldn't want to stash anything in the cover that could potentially hurt my Kindle anyways. I couldn't believe that the price was what it was because so many other covers cost more and do not protect your Kindle as well (this cover is made especially for Kindles because it actually hooks into the side of your Kindle...VERY impressive). Love love love this cover!:)

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect fit August 4, 2011
By Erin K.
Verified Purchase
The Kindle Leather Cover fits the Latest Generation Kindle wonderfully. The color that is displayed is very true to the actual color of the cover. The cover is very well made and is very flexible. I turn the front cover backwards and bind it with the strap while I am reading. Once I return the cover to the front when I am done, you cannot tell that the cover was bent. There is not a single crease from frequent bending. Plus, the cover does not add a lot of weight to the Kindle. I enjoy the featherlight weight of the kindle by itself and was slightly hesistant about the cover because I feared it would add too much bulk. However, it turns out this is not the case at all. I can still hold the Kindle in one hand and, since the cover is so bendable, the cover does not in anyway hinder the ease of holding the Kindle.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great case... June 16, 2011
Verified Purchase
I just got the "apple green" case, without the light a couple days ago. I didn't think i wanted to get a case because I like how small and light the kindle itself is, but after a week or so, I noticed it was getting scratches on the back. I wanted to keep it in great condition so I debated over several cases and I really feel in love with this one. However, I thought it was a brighter green than what is actually is. When I think of "apple green" I think of granny-smith apples; a light, but bright green. I would compare it to more of a Leafy-Green, at least the trees by my house! But its not dark like an army green. I just wish it was a little brighter. Another problem, that I have to get used to, is the weight of my kindle now. It is noticeably heavier. I used to throw my kindle in my purse when I left the house but now with the case, it weighs down my purse. Wow, I feel like this review is negative--- but I really do like having a case. I feel safer when I pack it in my bag or bring it to the gym with me. Overall I have NO regrets in purchasing this case. I just wish it was a little brighter!!!

When used to cover the kindle it converts it into almost a hard copy. As a reader who read many books before the electronic age I appreciate the feel of the cover's rigidity. Read more
