Not For Me
on October 5, 2011
I bought this cover to go with my Kindle ($79 model). While I love the look of this cover, I returned it after only one day. Why?
Well, first of all, because it is made to fit both the Kindle and the slightly larger Kindle Touch, the Kindle moves slightly side-to-side in the cover. I found this to be distracting when reading. Also, the four tabs that hold the Kindle in the cover looked awful, and I did not like how they felt on my fingers while reading.
The Kindle is all about the reading experience. The device itself should "disappear" while you read. This cover kept that from happening. I will wait for the official Amazon cover that does not have the corner tabs, and is made specifically for this particular Kindle.
That said, this IS a nice little cover, was well-made and packaged, and for some people would not be an issue at all. That is why, even though I am returning it after only a day, I gave it 3 stars.
