Never Be Without a Light
A permanent part of the cover, the reading light is located in the top right-hand corner of the back cover. When needed, simply pull the light out and it automatically illuminates, eliminating the need for a separate power switch. To turn the light off, slide it back in to the corner of the cover.
Since the light is powered by Kindle's battery, no batteries are needed.
How It Works
The cover's hinge points are gold-plated, to ensure a reliable electrical connection. Gold is used because of its ability to make good electrical contact even with low force, and for its corrosion resistance.

But the really amazing thing is the built in light. It's small and unobtrusive when in it's slot... you only see a dark corner and a little ridge, as nothing protrudes or looks bulky ... but when you grasp the ridge and pull out, a super thin light emerges, which bends a bit to just the right length and angle, automatically illuminating the K3 screen. This is just genius design. And to think.. it needs no battery, no cord, no storage pouch or pocket. It gets it's power from the K3's charge. It's easy to push back in, where it waits quietly for a chance to shine again.
I found the little gold tabs that fit in the K3 easy to insert and just as easy to remove if you want the K3 to go "naked" or in another cover... yet the cover holds on securely.
I love well designed, beautiful objects and this qualifies without compromise.
The hinges on the cover mess with the battery or something, and every time I would put the cover on the Kindle would freeze and short out, until it finally just stopped working. I had the Kindle replaced, and the cover did the same thing to my 2nd one. Finally talked to Amazon and found out it was the cover.
I do NOT recommend this at all, get a cover with no hinges!
I love the light feature in the cover, and use it all the time. When I turn off the main light in the bedroom, I am able to see the pages of the book and read them easily.
Not only does the cover keep my Kindle clean and protected, but adds functionality to help me read.
I chose the green because it is the color of spring, and the Kindle makes me feel as if I am in the springtime of my life. It is a beautiful shade of green. The elastic band around the cover holds the book reader in place. It also keeps your Kindle safe from breakage, fingermarks, and provides something that is easy to see.
I lose things all the time, so this is important to me. This is an excellent product, no matter what color you choose.
EDIT: Last night I was typing in a note in my kindle. I couldn't find the right key until I remembered to pull the tab and turn on the light. It is one of the best functions of any book cover I've ever had.
