Amazon's Kindle Leather Cover
Protect your Kindle
This leather cover offers optimal protection for your Kindle. Contoured, pebble-grain leather keeps your Kindle safe and secure, while the soft, charcoal-gray, microfiber interior protects the screen from scratches.
Lightweight, this cover is perfect for taking Kindle wherever you go, and is designed to fold back, so you can read comfortably with just one hand.
Secure your Kindle
Our updated hinge system secures Kindle in place. An elastic strap keeps the cover firmly closed for maximum screen protection. Simply attach Kindle to the hinge, apply the strap, and rest assured it will stay securely in place even when you're on the go.
Read comfortably with one hand
Reading with the cover on, you can easily access Kindle's navigation features and power switch, while the rounded edges offer a perfect fit in your hands. The cover is designed to fold back, so you can read comfortably with just one hand.
On the go
This lightweight, compact cover is perfect for taking Kindle wherever you go. The sleek leather ensures the ultimate fit and protection, without adding bulk or weight.
Top Customer Reviews
Very solid but lightweight, with a strong spine and easy attachment to and removal from the Kindle. Smells like real leather. Offers very good protection.
Can't (shouldn't?) fold it back, so you have to hold it open much like a regular book. This makes it more bulky and unwieldy than the Kindle alone. I end up removing it for reading, making my train commute a little more awkward.
Why can't manufacturers make their products with the cover already built in? It's obvious that the Kindle screen can be damaged if left unprotected. I know it's a rhetorical question because if we didn't pay for the cover separately, the cost would be added to the price, but somehow, that seems more honest to me.
As someone with poor eyesight, I think I should have spent more for the lighted version. I avoided it because of higher cost and weight but the Kindle is hard to read (for me) in low light. But for those with better eyesight, this is a good product and should be sufficient.
Based on comments to my earlier review, I tried folding it back. I was a little nervous but am happy to report that it works fine this way. That alone merits an upgrade in stars and title. Also, even with my poor eyesight, I'm able to read the Kindle in most locations, so with hindsight (which is better than my eyesight), I'm not sorry I passed on the lighted cover.
I spend THOUSANDS of dollars on Amazon every year. The Kindle Cover they sold me, destroyed the Kindle they sold me. They should comp the $85.00 I just spent. So, I am out a Kindle, can never use the cover again, and had to pay twice just to get a KINDLE. Something is wrong with this picture.
Final Note: I put the cover back on, and the Kindle won't even partially work. I took it off again, and it partially works. The prongs designed for the slots on the Kindle, render the Kindle USELESS! I hope this helps others.

Although it appears to be a great case, it is poorly designed. It has cracked my Kindle screen twice (I replaced it once and it then broke again). Read morePublished 2 months ago by A. Levy
