In the same way that the Kindle was designed to "disappear -- just like a physical book -- so you can get lost in your reading, not the technology," so it is with this leather cover. The cover does its job of protecting my Amazon Kindle without getting in my way. The cover is made of rich, elegant pebbled leather. It feels pleasant in my hand, I can read it with the cover open (like a book) or I can bend the cover back to read one-handed. My Kindle is securely held by two hinges or clips, leaving the entire Kindle free of encasement--a feature that I really like. The elastic strap fits smartly into a groove on the front of the cover. It also can be used to hold the cover back if I want to read one-handed. I purchased my cover from Target because I really wanted to see and feel it before I made the purchase. I recommend this cover for your Kindle.

I wanted to write that I either received the wrong item or what was posted was the incorrect description for the product. The item posted was for the Kindle Keyboard and that is what was featured in the photos. The product I received was for the Kindle Keyboard DX which is a 9" Kindle. The photo and the description was for the Kindle Keyboard which is a 6" device. I don't want to have to go through the process of refunding and returning this product so I'm stuck having paid for this item that I can't use.

I love my kindle btw, but one day an ad for a kindle cover popped up on my kindle screen, so I ordered it. I guess I'm the stupid one for not paying enough attention to detail. The cover arrived and I quickly found out that it was the wrong cover for the kindle I have. So, I've heard all the wonderful accolades about Amazon returns and set about returning it. There really wasn't a clear reason in the limited choices Amazon provides for the reason for the return, so I selected accidental order (thanks Amazon for setting me up with an inappropriate and misleading ad on my kindle, I guess I'm the one who got the lesson here. So much for being a good customer, at least I think I am.). Now, as I continued the return process I was informed I would have a shipping charge that was almost the price of the item. Hmmm. I rewrote my comment stating I'd just keep the wrong cover and write a review instead of returning it.

Now, my one star is because of my ire at Amazon for allowing misleading ads appear on my kindle. And, I ordered another cover that I "think" is the right one for the kindle I have. It talks about being for the 4th generation. I went back to the page of the kindle I have and searched for "generation", I only found "generations" mentioned in the reviews, there was nothing found in the product details. So, hopefully this other cover will be the right one. Amazon, I wish you could correct that discrepancy about "generation" of the item and post it in product details.

This is a great cover. It feels sturdy and it protects my Kindle very well even in my handbag. It also has an attached closure which I think is a must and it feels comfortable to hold.

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.

I bought my Kindle and this leather cover in late summer, and loved them both. The cover made reading the kindle very easy-either open or closed. HOWEVER, after three months, my Kindle stopped working. Since it was under warranty, Amazon sent me another one, which I promptly put in my leather cover. This second Kindle never worked properly; kept freezing up, and would take a long time to reset-sometimes overnight. The battery would not charge all the way up. I talked to Amazon, and they assured me it was not the cover, but they sent me a third Kindle. This time, I used a pliers, and removed the metal hinges from the cover, and fastened my Kindle to it with sticky-back velcro. Guess what!! no problems with this Kindle. Great cover, but remove the hinges, and fasten the Kindle in with Velcro.Kindle Leather Cover, Black, Updated Design (Fits Kindle Keyboard)

I ordered this cover though my new kindle due to the price and just needing a simple cover. On the kindle description page it says nothing about it being for the Keyboard Kindle ONLY! The sellers really need to update the description or remove it from the kindle special offers
