3.0 out of 5 stars Slick, November 16, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Amazon Kindle Touch Leather Cover, Black (does not fit Kindle Paperwhite) (Accessory)
Overall it's a nice looking cover and does it's job well. It's simple, elegant and slick. When I say slick, I don't necessarily mean cleverly devised, I mean slippery. The smooth leather provides next to no grip on the cover. I have a tendency to hold things lightly, so I can just imagine this repeatedly slipping out of my hand. Sure it doesn't have a band/clasp/etc to keep it closed, but neither did Kindle 2's cover, and neither does nearly every book ever published.

It's too expensive. I don't understand why Amazon is charging so much considering they'll be offering another cover with additional functionality for half the price (AmazonBasics Leather Folio Cover with Multi-Angle Adjustable Stand for Kindle Touch, Kindle (Black)). What the heck?

Pros:
Pretty
Functional

Cons:
Slippery
Expensive

Target sells great leather covers for the Kindle Touch. You should look there.

It is interesting to note that the AmazonBasics one is nearly impossible to find unless you have the direct link. It is almost as if they don't want you to find it......
