Had a Kindle brand 'premium' leather cover on my older ereader, which wasn't available for the Gen 11. Found Oberon Design and thrilled they were already offering covers for the latest Kindle. Oberon leathers are amazing! Thick, yet soft, the cover easily folds back in half, or lays open like a book while reading. The kindle turns off once the cover is closed. Surprisingly lightweight and comfortable to hold. The quality far exceeds any ereader cover I've come across; there really is no comparison. Adore the Lion design in Navy, makes me think of the African plains at night. The color saturation is rich and the workmanship is top notch. The leather will continue to look better over time. Couldn't be happier!
I already have three Oberon Design Kindle covers (plus several others that I gave as gifts) so when I bought my Nook, there was no question of buying anything else to cover it. The cover is beautiful and the texturing makes it safer to hold. I tried keeping an eReader in my purse without a cover and it developed pressure marks, so now I always use a cover. The straps hold it safely inside and provide drop protection. Opening it up, I can use a small book rest during lunch, pushing the buttons between bites. I bought the Lion design because it was on sale, but I also like having a Nook cover that is easily distinguishable from my Kindles.
