I took my original Kindle book cover to a shoe repair shop and had the guy cut a hole in the back to expose the buttons. He was able to move the elastic band and stitch about the hole. It's working great! He charged me $10.



Apologies in advance if these photos are not inserted correctly.

Yay! and that looks great. Certainly makes that cover more functional!

Oh and welcome to the Kindleboards, lots of great info & people here!

I thought you might like to see how great an inexpensive plate holder works as a Kindle book holder. I picked mine up from a very nice shop owner who only charged me a dollar. Most hardware and art supply stores carry them and it folds up almost flat for travel. Another thing I did was put small velcro squares on each corner of the Kindle, one on the upper right and one on the bottom right. My Kindle really feels secure now.

Welcome Yannatry! Thanks for the photos, what a great idea. The cover looks great and I have plate holders I can use, very creative. :)

If you haven't been to the Intro/Welcome Board yet please go over and tell us more about yourself.

Glad you are here,
Linda

Yes, those are great, easy and inexpensive solutions. I wish I'd thought of that. Thanks for sharing.

I've seen these plate holders before but never thought about one for my Kindle.  I have a sloped book stand that I use for my Kindle and love it.... but it is made of wood and plexiglass and definitely isn't good for ease of transporting with me.  I love that the plate holder pretty much folds flat and will go with me in my bag.  Thanks for the great idea!!  KB is such a great place to continually get new ideas!!
