5.0 out of 5 stars Great!, February 14, 2012
This review is from: Amazon Kindle Touch Leather Cover, Wine Purple (does not fit Kindle Paperwhite) (Accessory)
I'm not sure what other people were expecting, but I think this cover is perfect! The color is great, I was afraid it was going to look like a muddy purple, but it's a very nice dark wine color. More purple-ish than wine, but still nice.

I love the way my Kindle "snaps" into the case with no worry (or tackiness) of elastic bands or loops. It looks much cleaner and really gives the case more of a custom feel to it.

The cover itself does not seem cheap to me. Others think it looks cheap, or too much like plastic, but I find it soft and smooth to the touch while still feeling nice and sturdy. Exactly what I want in something that is supposed to be protecting my precious Kindle!

I have never had an issue with the cover not staying closed, even while traveling with it in my purse or carry on. There have been a couple times where I put a hair-tie around it, just for added close-ability, but honestly, I don't think I needed to. I'm not sure what other people are doing with their Kindle, but the cover stays closed just fine with mine.

The light!!! Ooooh, the light!!! BEST feature of all!!! My husband would probably agree to this as well, since I like to read in bed at night. lol. It casts light, fairly evenly, all the way down the screen with little to no glare. The only slight annoyance is that it can be a bit harsh on my eyes since there is nothing filtering it from shining almost straight at you. But with a small tilt of my Kindle the shine goes away and all I'm left with is a lit screen to continue my reading with. It also turns itself off once the Kindle goes to "sleep" and will only come on when it's "woken up" again. That way it's not draining your battery.

All in all, this cover is completely worth every penny! Buy it, love it and try not to be so dang picky people!
