The last Kindle cover I owned was for the first gen Kindle, and it was not impressive at all. When my wife ordered her cover, I almost recommended against getting an amazon branded cover. Then she received her red cover and I was very impressed. Come to find out Amazon has made incredible improvement on the way the Kindle is attached in the cover as well as the size of the cover itself.

I have read many comments about the smell, my wife and I do not have this issue. I have red comments about opening it the wrong way can damage the Kindle, I am not sure how one could do that.

This really is a great cover and I am not sure how any other brand could do a better job.

I just received my new Kindle cover (within the past hour) and my first reaction to it is to write a positive review. I am both frugal and a cynic by nature and so I always look for reasons to NOT buy products I am interested in. I like to check out the 1 star reviews on Amazon first, perhaps hoping that I will be dissuaded from making a purchase. That was almost what happened when I checked out the Kindle cover reviews. I was concerned about comments that the cover caused cracking in the Kindle's plastic casing. I am glad that I ignored those reviews and bought the cover anyway. The cover fits on the Kindle very nicely, if you FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS IN THE BOX!!! My Kindle has has not cracked, and I don't expect it to in the future because I will FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS IN THE BOX and will only open the cover from the front! Holding the Kindle inside its cover is like holding a physical book. I love it!

I bought this to provide a little protection for my Kindle. I had used the Kindle for about 2 months before getting the cover, and it took a little getting use to having a cover; I had gotten use to the tablet feel, and moving back to a book like feel was disconcerting. However, that is really a trivial issue.

The cover is a very nice leather. The strap to keep the cover closed is great because it identifies which is the front and keeps it firmly closed. The cover is easy to install, and stays attached to the Kindle without a wobbly feeling. Having used it now for 2 months, I have grown to like the leather smell and it gives me the sensory input that I always had with books. Instead of a dusty, paper smell, it is leather, but oddly comforting.

The leather cover for the Kindle looks really good, and it fits snugly around the Kindle. It is also easy to attach to the hinges.

The hinges is something I am not totally happy with, because you can't lift the Kindle from the back cover once it is attached. The hinges can't swing outwards, so if you lift the Kindle wrong, you might ruin the cover (the weight of the Kindle will bend the hinges).

I am also a bit worried about the band that is designed to keep the cover together when I am not using the device. It works just fine, but I am wondering how long it will be before it snaps.

I really like this cover, and it is by far the best I have tried on my Kindle, despite some small quirks I have mentioned above.

When I purchased my Kindle a few months ago, I also ordered this leather cover. I am so happy I purchased the leather cover: it fits perfectly, protects the Kindle, and looks great. It does not add a lot of weight to the Kindle and seems very durable. When the cover is folded backward, it can be secured with the elastic strap making the Kindle easy to hold in one hand. I've taken my Kindle with its cover everywhere (often stuffed in my purse) and the cover has held up beautifully.

My only semi-negative comment, is make absolutely sure you order the correct one for your Kindle. The covers are unit-specific which I unfortunately discovered the first time I ordered one.

This cover handles the Kindle very well. I recently purchased a cover for my iPad (the official Apple version). I wish Apple had used the same manufacturing that Kindle did. Keep up the good work Amazon.

The Kindle Leather Cover is a simple, but elegant design, that provides protection for your Kindle. The cover's hooks slide easily into the slots on the side of the Kindle and are secure. It is very well made and the leather exterior seems to be a good quality. The felt interior keeps the Kindle screen from being scratched when you carry it with you. I would recommend the Kindle Leather Cover to a friend.

I have been using my Kindle 2 Leather Cover for about a month now and have taken it on several trips. It holds my Kindle in place, and the strap stays on even after being jostled around in my bag. It is attractive looking and when reading, I feel more like I'm reading a book, as I hold the cover open. The only thing I wish it had was a slot on the inside front cover to put a notepad so that I could take handwritten notes as well as being able to annotate the book with the Kindle.
