My K3 is named Belvedere


1. The First Assassin (sounds like a good mystery/historical story)
2. Blue (for my wife's Kindle 3)


Purchased the JAVOedge Tweed Book Style Case for Kindle 3G/Wi-fi on Dec 11th. Ordered direct from JAVOedge rather from Amazon.  This case was replacing the Amazon Kindle Leather Cover in Black which I sent back to Amazon. The Amazon case was rather stiff and I did not like the way the hooks appeared to put pressure on the Kindle.

The JAVOedge Tweed Book Style Case is very stylish with leather piping around the tweed and a good amount of soft leather in the hinge area. The leather is synthetic but is very nice looking. The cover opens flat and has room for id card and a slot for paper like a portfolio in the left cover.  The Kindle 3 fits snug in the soft leather harness on the right side of case. The openings for the buttons, etc line up very well.  

Two minor quibbles. The color of the cover on the JAVOedge website appears to me as charcoal.  The leather color however is more of a chocolate brown and the tweed inserts have a brown tinge as well.  The color is not objectionable but not what I thought it was going to be. Second, the magnetic 'catches' on top and bottom of inside cover hold well on top but less so on the bottom.  The cover can be pulled open rather easily because of this. I suspect because of the very flexible cover, the bottom catch has a tendency to not align exactly like the top catch.

Compared to the Amazon Leather Cover, the JAVOedge is a notch up in quality and all who have seen it like it.  Quibbles aside, all in all a very usable item well worth the purchase price.

Hello All,

I'm Mark from the northwestern part of North Carolina and a new Kindle owner.  I'm an avid woodworker, motorcycle enthusiast, music lover and I have always loved to read since I was a little kid.

I'm new to the world of Kindle (K3) but I think it a great tool. I've already downloaded several free classics and purchased a bible and daily bible reading book. I'm partial to the New Living Translation and New International Version.

My favorite topics are about history, science and science fiction, woodworking, motorcycling and aviation.
