It’s available in denominations from $10 to $250 with 18 designs that include Thank You, birthdays, weddings and love.

Spots 5 and 9 in Kindle accessories are taken up by Marware’s Lightweight Microshell Folio Cover in black and graphite, though pink and white are also available. The back is a polycarbonate case with a soft felt covering. The front is rubberized to protect against impact and scratches. The cover can be folded to provide a hands-free stand.

Installation is easy. Clean your screen with the included microfiber cleaning cloth, attach the protector and then use the included applicator to smooth out any bubbles. You may experience some increased reflectiveness under bright light.
