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.

Instead of elastic at the corners to hold in your Kindle, it has hooks located in the middle of the cover that insert into slots in the side of your Kindle. Once in the cover, there is no danger of it falling out at all.
My only complaint is that on the interior, there are no pockets. Sometimes when I'm just going down to the coffee shop and I'm on foot, I like to just put some cash in the pocket and leave my handbag at work or in my vehicle. Also, I sometimes make notes on the books that have more than one part (serials) with different titles explaining the order that they should be read in so I really miss the pocket. For that reason, I gave it 3.5 stars
Other than that this is a great cover.
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.
(Why do I still use the venerable old KK? Because with all of the distractions that apps and e-mail and such bring to my Kindle Fire, I end up doing everything BUT reading on it. So why not get a Paperwhite, you ask? Because the KK still works fine).
