Kindle eBook readers and Amazon Kindle covers go hand in hand – the choice in style is yours
It is not just the Kindle device that attracts buyers, there are many Amazon Kindle covers that can make your device interesting, stylish and protected.
There are many types to choose from and it mostly depends on design and preference.
It is highly recommended to have one, if for nothing else but to protect your eBook reader.
Here are some of the popular Kindle covers on the market today.
Kindle Lighted Leather Covers
The Kindle Lighted Leather covers can handle the 6’’ display and it is very elegant and trendy. This is definitely the bestselling cover mostly because of the built-in LED reading light which makes it possible for you to read at night or in a dark room. You don’t need batteries for this extra feature since the power comes from the actual device. The most important thing is that the soft interior protects your screen from being scratched or damaged and once you put the Kindle inside the cover, it will be safe in one position. The lighted leather covers are available in several colors, from black to burgundy red, burnt orange, apple green, steel blue, hot pink, and chocolate brown. The only downside is that they are a bit pricey, but on the other hand, once you buy it you’ll know that have one of the best covers on the market.
Belkin Pleated Sleeves
Belkin is a brand known for their ingenious device accessories, including Amazon Kindle covers. For your eBook reader, Belkin has come up with the zipped style, making it comfortable to carry the device wherever you go. Despite the small size, the pleated sleeve surprisingly has plenty of room not only for the ereader but also for other accessories, such as a charger. The pleated exteriors give the Kindle covers an ultra-chic feel—and they are available in dozens of unique shades, while the interiors are packed with reinforced panels for excellent device protection and durable lining to prevent screen scratching or bruising. The covers are built to be long lasting, though users always have the option to tap the one-year limited warranty.
Timbuk2 Nylon Kindle Sleeve
These covers don’t have the elegance offered by Amazon’s official leather cases or the contemporary style of Belkin Pleated Sleeves. Timbuk2 is rugged, reminiscent of the manly looking travel backpacks. Even the colors won’t impress you much. However, what it sorely lacks in the aesthetic department it makes up in its functionality. If you’re scared that zippers may accidentally scratch the screen or the straps don’t offer enough protection around the edges, then this is your best bet. The Timbuk2 Nylon Kindle Sleeve uses a strong Velcro to secure the e-book reader. The inside is extremely soft for proper screen protection. The seams, on the other hand, are heavily stitched. These Kindle covers are very affordable, costing no more than $30.
Marware Eco-Vue Kindle Leather Folio
At this day and age where everyone is encouraged to care for the earth, these Amazon Kindle covers do just that. The folios are made from eco-friendly leather, used in the front and back.

This may not pose well for those who don’t want to carry bulky Kindle cover, but they offer the best type of protection for your device. Its functional design allows you to have easy access to the e-book reader buttons, except for the volume. There is also room for business and credit cards. And at no more than $35, this is a good alternative to the pricey lighted leather covers.
