Customer Review

on November 17, 2011
Feels like a cheap piece of plastic instead of a leather cover. I paid $35 for this? Should have been more like $15.

I think one area Amazon screwed up in their redesign of the Kindle is that they took away the slots on the side where covers used to snap into the Kindle. With those your Kindle was securely attached to the cover. The previous generation's leather cover was also much higher quality. It had some weight to it and felt like an old, leather bound book. It also had just a bit of padding to it which I hope would help if I ever dropped it. This new cover seems like the leather is just glued to the plastic so if you drop it almost all of the impact will be transferred to the Kindle.

I chose this cover because the new Kindle would just snap in instead of being held in by its corners. But if I had it to do over again I'd get Acase's cover (which IS only $15) or one by Marware which looks like it has that old-school leather feel to it.
