Protect Your Tech Investment!

I don't know about you but I love scrolling through a collection of cool, crazy, funky Kindle covers. It's as good as shoe shopping sometimes.

You can keep yourself looking cool and stylish and protect your ereader investment at the same time with the right case. Try one in a colorful pattern or a sleek texture in leather or vinyl.

I personally like the handmade cases and styles from well-known designers and the ones made by manufacturers that use colorful patterns and bright leather.

Did I miss something? Have you received a cool cover as a gift that you don't see listed here?

Visit the comments section of this lens and let me know about it, the brand and where it was purchased so we can create an up-to-date list of the best kindle covers.

Meanwhile, I will be searching for more covers.

Don't forget to take a look at the Top 10 List and make your choices known to all of Squidoo!

Choose Color

Leather covers are the sturdiest protection. They avert damage from dropping and keep moisture and weather away from the device.

Yes, leather covers come in the standard choices of black, brown and a wide array of tans. Why not take a look at something more colorful? You can always click over to the "boring and safe" later on.

My choice is to brighten up the world a bit! I say, "Go for the orange!"

Tip #1

Always check the type/generation of Kindle the cover is designed for before purchasing.

The Lighted Cover

Perfect for low lighting or under the covers reading.

Especially great to use for keeping family and friends asleep when you can't!

I love reading when I wake up in the middle of the night and can't go back to sleep.

Features:

  • Battery FREE! Gathers energy directly from the device to light-up.
  • Uses LED light to create an even light source for esay viewing.
  • Sleek, thin design---not bulky or too big.
  • Cover folds back easily for one handed grip reading.
  • 4 Leather colors to choose from

Kindle Cover History

Amazon did not begin releasing its own series of cases until the debut of the third-generation Kindle. It's no suprise that those cases dominate Amazon's accessory list.

Many dozens of buisnesses have jumped on the cover bandwagon designing any number of styles, colors and shapes of cases for the Amazon ereader. Buyers are faced with so many choices at this point that it's difficult to know which case is worth buying and which one is a dud.

When it comes to protecting your investment, everyone has an opinion, and surely there are a few really great ones missing from our list. But stay tuned because we update this list often.

In fact, we just added this Hot Black and White case from BUILT you see on your right. Click the photo to find out more.

Selecting a Case

Just like handbags, every one has a preference when it comes to selecting a case for their pad or reader.

However, there are a few criteria that everyone seems to agree on:

  • Solid protection, which requires a sturdy outer layer that reduces damage from falls and drops
  • Soft interior to protect against scratches from stitching or outside influences
  • Reliable closure. You don't the contents to spill out.
  • Visually appealing

Tip #3

Leather is always a great choice for the guys but why not step out of bounds with something more tech? Try a textured one.

What's Your Favorite?
