For my latest birthday, my lovely husband bought me a Kindle. Wow! I absolutely love it. I’m an avid reader so the ability to have a library of different books in my handbag at any one time is absolute heaven for me.
Because I had some Amazon vouchers to use up, I got my husband to order the Kindle a couple of weeks before my birthday; that way he got £30 off. Bargain! So, when it arrived, I just thought I’d charge it up and then put it back in the box. WRONG! Once it had charged up, I thought I’d just ‘have a quick play with it’. Fatal mistake. Within a day, I had over a dozen books on it and I’d almost read one of them!!! Oooops . . .
Anyway, I digress. I was concerned about my Kindle getting scratched in my bag so I spent rather a lot of time looking around for a case that wasn’t too expensive. Some of them cost an absolute fortune; it’s ridiculous! Eventually, I ordered this one and in the meantime, I came up with a brilliant solution to a temporary problem, completely by accident.
I had been using a clear 12.5cm X 17cm pencil case (as a pencil case!) that I believe I bought from either Staples or Morrisons quite a while ago. It wasn't expensive - I reckon about £2, if that. I put my Kindle inside it, zipped it up and ‘hey presto’ – the perfect temporary Kindle case! I could still press all the buttons I needed to without taking it out of the case. Here’s a picture of it:
After not long at all, my new purple Kindle case arrived. It’s really great! It fits perfectly inside and it doesn’t make the whole package too bulky, which was something I had worried about. I’m always hankering after things that reduce the bulk in my handbag!
It has a storage flap on the inside cover which is quite useful. The material it’s made out of isn’t leather, but so what? It did smell rather . . . funny . . . at first, but that smell soon disappeared. It’s a lovely aubergine/plum kind of purple and shuts securely with a magnetic fastener. The inside is purple velour.
I would thoroughly recommend this product, especially at the bargain price of £5.99 with free postage and packing! And it also comes with a free screen cover!
The shop also sells these cases for the Kindle with a keyboard at the bottom so check out their shop on Amazon and buy one with confidence. It’s certainly got my seal of approval!
