Nice but pricey
on October 12, 2011
It is a nice "home" for your Kindle, and the device definitely needs one to be protected from scratches etc. The cover (I just received it today) also seems to be well made and it fits my basic Kindle glove-like. However, this cover is NOT worth 35 dollars.
I'll probably keep it nevertheless, since there seem to be no other - or at least no really cheaper - options. Unless you wanna put your Kindle just in a sleeve-thing to carry it around in. But even those sleeves made for the Kindle are not much cheaper than this cover. And it is crucial that your device fits nicely in its cover or sleeve. If you can find something else that you can transport your Kindle in, I'd go for that - and please let me know if you do. :-)
P.S.: I prefer the cover over the sleeve, because you can use your Kindle in it and flip it open like a book cover. Definitely a plus for travelling or even just killing a few minutes with reading while waiting at the doctor's office or wherever.
