Top customer reviews
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.
I found where the generation of my kindle is located: I went to the Home Screen -> select menu -> Settings: I found my Kindle Version in the lower right hand corner which I assume is the "generation", so my second shot at ordering a cover should be the correct cover.
I just needed to let off a little steam at my less than stellar return experience with Amazon. A perusal of the reviews for this "wrong cover" showed me that I wasn't the only sucker that ordered the wrong cover. Come on Amazon! I expect more from you! Oh well, thousands of things ordered and one FUBAR where I do have some complicity in the error due to my poor attention to detail, I probably shouldn't be too hard on Amazon. But, I sure feel better now.
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.
