Kindle Accessories / New Oasis Cover
« on: November 03, 2017, 03:24:23 PM »
I have been using Kindles since 2009 and I have to have a case. My hands were never meant for fine detail. They strong but tying flies, repairing watches, and holding a naked Kindle is not in their future. The lightweight, thin, Kindles require, for me, a cover I can hold on to and that will protect the device. I like having a little added weight too.

My best covers are the Amazon Paperwhite. They're too expensive but they're good.

After market covers are usually hard plastic, slippery, and when i tried some with my Voyage the wake/sleep function frequently didn't work. The Voyage Amazon case was, for me, a disaster. The floppy flip front just didn't get it. I got rid of the Voyage.

I ordered an Oasis and an Amazon Kindle cloth case. I got the Oasis but no case. I was told I might get one by the 20th of December. So, the Oasis went back today.

I liked the Oasis enough I might get one but I'd really like to hear opinions o the Oasis Amazon cover, either leather or cloth. Please write about your experiences with the cover.

I got a new Kindle app for my Google Pixel running Android 8.0 and it's nice. Much faster than the old Kindle, adds Ember Bold font. Very different user interface. Of course, I read on my phone only in emergencies but when I do this app will be nice.

I got my KindleDX three weeks ago and have been reading constantly since. I got the Kindle because I've spent 12 years reading what I could get here in Oaxaca instead of what I wanted to read. Now, I'm free and thoroughly enjoying myself.
