1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy--breaks your Kindle September 15, 2011
I received this case as a gift along with a Kindle (new generation) for Christmas 2010. It's cute but when my Kindle stopped working just a couple of weeks after I bought it the Amazon/Kindle customer service rep I spoke to said that it was probably this case that broke it and that they've see it happen before. I guess the reason is the hinges that fit into the side of the Kindle?
Anyway, they refunded the cost of the case, which was lovely, and I bought one that just holds the Kindle in at the corners with elastic and works just fine. But if this case was indeed responsible for breaking my Kindle as the Kindle service rep claimed, it probably shouldn't be sold any longer.

I have the The Importance of Being Earnest one, and I just love this cover--it's stylish, bright, and fun, and I have received so many compliments. It's a real conversation starter.

The canvas is coated on the outside to keep it clean, but uncoated on the inside, which I really like. It's soft and it doesn't collect dirt and dust that could scratch my Kindle like some inner covers do. I've had it for two months and have used it heavily and it hasn't gotten dirty at all. The left side has two pockets, which I find very convenient.

This cover keeps the Kindle in place with the hinge system, something I didn't know about prior to purchase. Your Kindle comes with two little slots on the left side that allow for two little "hooks" to latch on to keep it in place. It took me a few minuted to figure out how to get the Kindle in there and get it adjusted just so, so but once I figured it out, I loved it! it keeps the Kindle very secure and straight, and it doesn't wiggle around it all. It's relatively easy to get the Kindle back out again, though I did notice that if you do not put your Kindle in correctly, it will be a little crooked and loose. I received a customer service email from Amazon not long after I purchased this cover advising me to not let the Kindle hang solely from the hooks, as it will damage them, which is just a matter of common sense.

This cover is slightly thicker than my M-Edge cover and slightly padded, but it provides plenty of security for the Kindle. Unlike other covers, the front flap doesn't fold back all the way, so you have to read the Kindle like you would with a normal book, propped open with two covers. This was a little bit of an adjustment for me, as I really enjoyed reading it with either hand, but certainly not a deal breaker.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kate Spade Kindle Cover February 21, 2013
This was the longest I had ever waited for a package to arrive from Amazon, but it was worth it. I really like how the Kindle clips into the case and has the extra storage in the sleeves.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Importance of Being AWESOME February 3, 2011
Verified Purchase
So after weeks of debating whether or not to buy this cover (The Importance of Being Earnest is my favorite play and purple/red are my favorite colors), I finally broke down and got it after it went on sale. Let me tell you, this cover is freaking adorable. The hinges also are very secure and wiggle far less than the Amazon cover. I haven't had any freezing/rebooting issues so far, but I'll update if I do. I love that this cover has two pockets on the inside cover, which are great for storing spare cash, travel things (tickets, passport, etc.), and other stuff like that. Also, it does fold back completely flat, though it also has the right feel/stiffness for reading it open like a traditional book. It doesn't add much weight to the Kindle and it feels like holding a medium-sized paperback in terms of heft. The coating on the canvas seems to be very easily cleaned in case of spills, as well.

The only reason I gave this four stars instead of five is because I wish there was a way to keep it closed While in my bag (though that really isn't a major issue in practice), and that the cover has a bit of a vinyl smell to it (which actually is gradually going away now that it's in the open air).

This cover is really cute and sturdy and I've gotten many compliments. Sometimes though, my kindle does show a huge black bar across the screen when I check my menu but disappears if I exit out of it. Other than that I haven't had any major problems. Hopefully I won't.

5.0 out of 5 stars FUN & FUNCTIONAL! March 12, 2014
Verified Purchase
It's hard to find a really cute Kindle cover and I love the idea of an actual book title cover. This is made for the older Kindle with keyboard, BUT I retrofitted my NEW Kindle using 3M Command Hooks, the Velcro style. They are easy to apply and they come off clean, no residue. I put one on each corner of my current Kindle and it works perfectly in this cover. Bright, colorful and well made!
