Awe, OK. Hopefully these 2 weeks go by quickly for you.

I hope so. I traded in my Oasis for this model so I've been reading on my basic unlit Kindle. Really missing my Oasis. I'll probably do back flips when it arrives!

I hope you love it. I love mine.

To stay on topic, do you plan on skinning it?

Absolutely! I just don't know what design I want. Too many choices.

I found a case to try today, so after ordering that, I went ahead and ordered skins for my new Oasis.
I picked these two by Iveta Abolina:
https://www.decalgirl.com/artwork/2041/before-the-storm
https://www.decalgirl.com/artwork/2038/sonnet

I've had her After The Rain skin on two tablets and a Kindle in the past.  I like her designs because they don't have a specific up and down.  Since I read on the Oasis with the buttons on the left, I need something that won't distract me by being upside-down.

I like those. They are very pretty!

I suspect they would stick . . . they're pretty tight and as long as the skin is a smooth, clean surface they should work. Theoretically, they also can be peeled off if needed. Not sure, though, if they'd damage the skin if you did that. And if they're stuck on for a while and you peel 'em off, I'm not sure how well they'd work to use again.

I think you would see the skin through the clear -- but any pattern would likely be distorted because of the texture of the grippy things. I haven't got a cover/case yet, but I suspect they may affect how one fits. That said, if it's a cover that fits the whole back, you don't need the grip strips so much.

Thanks very much Ann.

That's beautiful Anastayja. It's funny, I usually dont skin the back of my Kindles...because I never look at the back  :)

This is a beautiful skin! I was just at the Decal Girl website and saw it there first. Then I came over to Kindle Boards and see it one a real Oasis. Wow!! I just ordered this. My Oasis 2 will arrive next Friday.

I had ordered one way back, but then cancelled it. Since I let the hubs buy a $500+ competition pistol on Friday, he asked what I wanted.  :P Gotta love that!! And... stopped at a Coach Outlet store and bought a new purse and wallet. ;D

Nice! I think that it is really pretty also. [emoji3]

Hope that you love your new Oasis as much as I love mine. It is so nice to fit more on a page.

Seems like you made out well!!! I always tell my husband, happy wife, happy life. 🤣

I decided to skin my Oasis 2 also...first time I have done this in a long time.  I forgot how fun it is to shop at Decal Girl!  I think it does make it a little easier to hold onto.  I may remove the front decal if I find it distracting.

I have a question, if I wanted to skin my Paperwhite, how do I protect the screen while putting it in and out of my purse?  I have the original Kindle cover, but I noticed how much weight it adds
