UPDATE: Case is still holding firm with no issues.
One thing that has occurred to me is: This case works for either left or right handed folks. With the Kindle Basic having page turning bars on both sides and the cases ability to be used in either a right or left hand orientation that makes this case better than I first imagined. In fact I like the case so much that I may just return my lighted cover when it gets here. A light is nice but adaptability is far more important to me.
The case is very nice. The leather is soft, it's nicely padded, and the stitching is very cleanly done and even. There is an elastic band, similar to what you'd find on a Moleskine, to hold the cover shut or open and folded around back. When you fold the cover around the back of the Kindle, there is an elastic hand strap that you can slide your hand into so you don't have to actually grasp the case/Kindle while reading.
I'm glad I waited for the brown colored case, as it looks very classy with the black elastic strap. So many things are just plain black these days, so having the reserved but attractive medium-dark brown color is nice.
This case holds my new $79 Kindle 4 (non-touch) perfectly and all of the buttons and USB port are easily accessible with the Kindle strapped-in. The little bits of leather on the corner straps line-up on the Kindle just perfectly and the folding of the case doesn't have a bunch of wrinkles or anything undesirable. You can tell this was "Made for Kindle" and approved by Amazon.
Using the case makes the small Kindle easier to hold IMO. It gives you something to hold onto with both hands (open like a book) which can be less fatiguing for me at least. I spent some time with the cover folded-back using the hand strap earlier and that works nicely as well. Between the two "styles" of use, I'm sure that anyone could find a comfortable way to hold it.Read more ›
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.
This model has no light, which is not a problem for me as I never read in the dark. (Lighting is a pretty mature technology.) It has a reinforced band in each corner of one side, and holds the Kindle without impairing the screen or the buttons.
While it has a large band on the inside cover opposing the Kindle for slipping over one's hand when that cover is folded back, designed to make holding the Kindle more securely, I find it easier to hold it with the cover open with one hand as one would a regular book. If one has a long enough thumb and positions one's hand just right, one can click the page forward button and read with one hand.
There are a few things I would add, like a pen holding pocket and a small pocket on the outside (the inside "slot" is fairly small and limited), and I think the price is a bit high for what one gets. These are small nitpicks, however - on balance I am quite pleased with it.
This case allows one to protect the Kindle, hold it like a book, and read it quite easily. I am glad I got it at the same time as I got my Kindle, and recommend it without reservation.

I wish this cover was still available. I bought a used one that was perfect in every way, except it only fit the Kindle Fire, and I have a Paperwhite. It killed me to return it. Read morePublished 25 days ago by Amazon Customer
