I have this one:

Light slots into a side pocket.

I have dropped it, knocked it on floor... was fine


DazedConfused Report 23 Feb 2013 18:10

I have a leather one without the light - when they were out orginally lots of people had problems with the lights so I decided against.

But did buy a light for it. And it does come in handy at times.

I would recommend you buy the best you can afford as they protect against dropping and knocks.

So leather would be the best option. Kindles own is mine.

The leather one sounds good but which one is it on their site??

I paid a lot more for mine, but it was a while ago.

My basic Kindle in that case has fallen off of a hospital bed onto the floor several times & survived :-D :-D

Have you seen this one and would it be ok, or is it a joke??

Thanks Carol, will look again:)

I like mine because of zip, once zipped inside cannot escape :-D :-D :-D

I have arthritic thumbs so need something that is not slippery

I have this one Jude:

but they are all pretty much the same, I like the magnetic catch cos it's easy for my fingers :-D

a case came with my Kindle - it's a black one - well it was black but now it's black and white as my cat rather likes it ad uses it as a seat!! They have stacks of choice in Curry's and with regard to ever breaking or damaging my Kindle, if you got it from Curry's it's guaranteed for life - they give you a new one if yours get broken or damaged

I wanted a fabric one rather than a leather one..found it much easier to hold for long periods of time.


~`*`Jude`*`~ Report 23 Feb 2013 20:35

Thanks everyone:)

This is what l have ordered....l can always send it back it no good:)

iTALKonline PadWear BLACK Executive BOOK Wallet Case Cover Shield Slot for Amazon Kindle 4 (4G) Global Wireless 3G 6" 6 inch 2011 Model"

As long as it keeps the Kindle secure and protects the screen Jude they are all pretty good.
