Product Description

Product Description

From Moleskine, the legendary manufacturer of books-yet-to-be written, comes the newest analog-digital hybrid tool: the Moleskine Kindle cover. The features and style of this cover are classic Moleskine: sleek rounded corners, strong elastic band, and the iconic smooth black cover. The cover protects and cushions the Kindle device, in a silhouette that's instantly classic and contemporary. It's a simple design beloved by writers, artists, and readers for over a century. Inside, contrasting microsuede lining adds an extra layer of protection, while it echoes the familiar cream-colored pages of a Moleskine notebook. Four double-stitched corner elastic bands hold the device in place and allow access to all buttons and inputs. Included in every cover is a package of two reporter-style Volant notebooks, created exclusively for the Kindle and designed for the reader who enjoys jotting notes and insights (and who is constantly reaching for a Moleskine notebook). These slim notebooks feature a smooth black cover, rounded corners, and blank ivory pages inside. The notebook slides into a pocket on the inside cover of the case. Additional refills may be purchased separately.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite what I was expecting. July 24, 2010
Verified Purchase
Don't get me wrong - I love moleskine notebooks...love them. When I saw this product, I was excited. To have a notebook with my Kindle made it easy for me to just toss one thing in my bag and head out without having to look for separate things. When I ordered it, I knew it was going to be bulky, but didn't think it would be quite this bulky...but it works. When I opened the box, I was very happy with the look of the product - love the leather - and was excited to use this. So, why only 3 stars? Now that I have been using it for a while, there are a couple issues:

1. It is heavier than I thought it would be and I find myself keeping my Kindle out, separate, unless I am taking it someplace. It was just too heavy to hold and sit on the couch reading.

2. The spine of this product is not well made. Mine makes crackling noises, like there is a light plastic or something in there. I thought it would stop after it broke in, but it is still doing it and it is loud.

3. There really needs to be a slot or something on the spine to put a pen. There is no way to attach a pen - which kinda defeats the purpose of the pairing with a notebook.

4. The spine feels flimsy and when you close the covers, the front cover sags a little and does not line up with the back. The only way to keep it together is to use the back strap to close the binder. I expected it to be a little more sturdy than this.

5. Amazon does not sell the refills for it. Seriously? they don't carry the 5.25x8.25 soft cover reporter notebooks? I would love to have one with lines, instead of the plain ones - but none of them are available here. You can get them at Borders if you need to, or on [...

5.0 out of 5 stars what a great product for a left handed person! June 17, 2010
Verified Purchase
This is the kindle dx cover I have been wanting forever....since I use my kindle dx to read lots of tech manuals that often require lots of note taking, this is the absolute perfect cover. And for once, the notebook is on the left side (unless you're a lefty, you have no idea what a struggle it can be to write in a notebook that is on the 'wrong' side of your desk.) I may just buy two!

2.0 out of 5 stars Moleskine - nice, but bulky June 20, 2010
Just received this with my soon-to-be returned Kindle DX. Overall, nice product - it is Moleskine, but ...

1) the notepad is on the LEFT side? What? Don't they realize most people are RIGHT handed (and, no you can NOT flip the cover 180 degrees because the insertion slot for the notebook's back flap is left-hand only).

2) the elastic retainers are decent; however, the upper right one obstructs the volume key/button.

3) This cover made the DX feel like an encyclopaedia volume, not the sleek magazine-like device they picture!

The only product out there to take notes with (why? I don't know), so if you can deal with left-handed note taking and the feel of a large book - go for it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Kindle Cover! August 30, 2010
By Joanne
Verified Purchase
Awesome cover for the Kindle. I'll try to touch on some things that I don't think were covered specifically in other people's reviews.

First some background, I bought the Kindle DX for school (and have also found that it's launched me back in leisure reading). I won't go into the Kindle DX review details but in case you are wondering: http://www.amazon.com/review/R3TKVK4UTW1FU6/ref=cm_cr_rdp_perm. :)

OK, so I'm not exactly sure what part of this cover is supposed to give me cancer (according to some California law) but I wasn't super worried about that with all the lead paint in my old house and asbestos flying around old buildings, I figured the Kindle case is the last thing that might cause me cancer...but I digress.

1. Cover can fold completely over for Kindle-dedicated reading
2. The handy-dandy elastic band can wrap over the reporter pad to keep it from flopping around while reading the Kindle
3. Provides a serious amount of hardcover protection and I'm not afraid to throw it into my backpack or purse
4. Makes the Kindle feel more like a book, somewhat easier to hold and I actually think it contributes to "losing myself" while reading content on the Kindle
5. Quality you can feel - from the leather hard cover (yet soft to the touch) outside to the suede inside. Well worth the $$.
6. Contrary to other reviews, Amazon does sell refill notepads for this case (I always want to jot down tasks or thoughts and find that it works well to have the notebook accessible)
7. I'm right handed and I don't actually mind the pad on the left hand side. It forces me to think and jot down something meaningful rather than just copy (my mind is default: lazy so must force it to work)
8.

4.0 out of 5 stars With a little modification, outstanding. November 25, 2010
By danno
Verified Purchase
I love moleskine products, so I may be slightly biased, but...

I used my Kindle for reading academic papers (PDF) and pleasure books. This cover seemed to offer the perfect option, as I need to take notes while I read.

It is true, the pocket for the notepad is poorly designed, and the notepad will flop over. It is also true that the design is for a lefty, which is really silly and inconvenient... BUT:

I took an exacto knife and cut a slit through the bottom of the pocket, just above the stiching, just slightly longer than the width of the notepad. I then lined the edges of the cut with a tiny bit of masking tape (just to keep it from ripping). I then flipped the DX over, and voila, a righty notepad, and the notepad doesn't flop over.

Should I have to do this? No. However, I found it worth the price for a very classy feeling, functional product that will protect my Kindle without damaging it (as some of the Amazon products are purported to do).

Cheers.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not so good cover
To heavy, to big. Paper is on the left side which makes it very hard for right handed to write something. There is no place for pencil.
I expect more from Moleskine.
