You've bought the Kindle, now you need to buy your Kindle cases. There is a wide variety of covers on the market and all serve the main purpose of protecting it. The cover you chose should suit your lifestyle and it can express yourself at the same time. Make sure you buy the right sized case for the model as they each differ a little.
Perhaps the most popular, the book cover case makes your reader feel like a classic hardcover book in the hand. The device is held securely in place by straps inside the back cover and the front cover closes to protect the screen. Some have a clasp to hold the book closed. You'll find these in every imaginable design, color and pattern giving you a real opportunity to express yourself make your Kindle feel lovely in your hands as you read.
The false book jacket cover is a witty way to express yourself, looking like the cover of some great classic. In fact these and all book cover cases can also be found in cheaper leather-look fabrics, plastic and a number of other textiles, including hemp. Find the one that has the right feel for you.
If you're never without your e-reader then the folio jacket would be ideal. It provides good protection and might have slots to keep notes, money and credit card all together. The folio is held fast with a snap clip or band and may have a wrist strap. You'll find it available in a variety of colors and styles.
A fold out stand means you have a protective cover for the case but are also able to read without holding the device. Release the stand from the case and set it up on a surface for easy reading. These are available in landscape and portrait format.
Kindle readers use e-ink display technology which gives great readability in sunlight although not in low light. Many cases come with a clip-on reading lamp attached to the front jacket or cover top. This gives enough light to read in the dark.
To avoid the bulk of a case opt for a sleeve. Simply slip the reader into the lightweight pouch. The neoprene model is great for travel as it's low cost and protects against bumps and splashes and is also sold in reversible fabric with a different pattern inside and out - two for the price of one! Silicone sleeves are ultra-thin; the ultimate sleek no-bulk case and lovely to the touch. Jazz up your Kindle with colorful stick on skins, although remember they don't provide the same protection as Kindle cases - you'll still need those.
