Keep Your Kindle Protected With These Kindle Cases
If you own a Kindle e-reader, you are probably planning on having it last for quite some time. After all, that’s one of the attractions of getting a Kindle in the first place: not needing to keep finding, paying for, and storing physical books. To ensure your Kindle is protected from bumps and scratches whether you’re at home or on the road, you may want to consider a Kindle case.
Beyond simply protecting your Kindle, Kindle cases can provide other benefits. Some provide built-in lighting for night reading, while others allow you to prop up your Kindle at the appropriate angle on a bed or desk to facilitate hands-free reading. What’s more, just as with smart phone cases, there is a variety of sleek, stylish options to choose from.
Kindle Lighted Leather Cover
If you are looking for a high quality protective case that incorporates a reading light for night reading, the Kindle Lighted Leather Cover may be the case for you. The case exterior consists of sleek, contoured, pebble-grain leather while the interior consists of soft charcoal microfibers to prevent any scratching on the Kindle screen. The cover can be kept firmly closed with an elastic strap or easily folded back so you can read with one hand.
While the Kindle Lighted Leather Cover is noted for the stylish design, versatility, and protective ability of its case, the neatest feature is without a doubt its integrated, retractable reading light. This is a high-quality LED light that is powered by the Kindle itself through gold-plated hinge points on the inside of the case (so it doesn’t have separate batteries or need to be plugged in)
It casts an even light onto the Kindle screen without producing any glare, allowing you to comfortably read your Kindle anytime, anywhere with no accessory devices required. When the reading light is needed, simply slide it out of the upper right-hand corner of the back cover. The LED illuminates automatically. To turn it off, simply slide it back into the cover.
The Lighted Leather Cover weighs just 8 ounces and comes in several vibrant colors in addition to the standard black, including steel blue, burgundy red, hot pink, green, burnt orange, and burgundy red. For a good-looking, durable and very protective cover that has all the lighting you need built-in, you can’t go wrong with the Kindle Lighted Leather Cover. For more details, visit Amazon.com.

Marware Atlas Cover
If you own a Kindle or Kindle touch and simply want an attractive yet durable case without the bells and whistles, the Marware Atlas is worth your consideration. The Atlas offers a durable fabric exterior along with a soft microsuede inner surface to protect the Kindle screen.
Elastic straps are located at each corner of the case to secure the Kindle in place without interfering with the reading experience. Another strap holds the front cover open for comfortable one-handed reading – simply slide your hand inside the hand strap for convenience.
The Atlas is available in black, beige, charcoal grey, and pink. It combines a sleek, sophisticated design, smart ergonomics, and high-level protection into one thin package. For more details and to check out the user reviews, visit Amazon.com.
Kindle Fire Lightweight MicroShell Folio Cover
For those who are looking for a unique case specially designed for the new Kindle Fire, Marware also offers the MicroShell Folio Cover. Like the Atlas cover, the MicroShell is sleek and lightweight. However, it features a rubberized front cover and a hard polycarbonate back cover. An interior felt lining protects the Kindle from scratches.
The MicroShell Folio Cover offers two options for Kindle reading. For one-handed reading, simply fold the front cover back and secure it with the elastic strap that is heat-fused to the back shell. For hands-free reading, simply fold the front cover back and insert it into the groove on the back of the polycarbonate shell. This will allow you to stabilize the Kindle screen at an appropriate viewing angle on any relatively flat surface such as a desk, table, or bed.
In addition to black, the MicroShell Folio cover is available in graphite, pink, and white. For maximal ease of reading your Kindle Fire, it doesn’t get much better than this. For more information, visit Amazon.com.
