For those of you who already have the Oberon Cover, is it comfortable holding the Kindle in the case?  The cover that comes with the Kindle is pretty easy to hold in one hand while reading, but to me the Oberon cover looks like it might be a little stiff.  Any comments out there?

Thanks,

Jane

I have no problem with mine, I read it folded all the time.  There are pics in one of the Oberon threads.  I'll look for them and post them here too.

As thick as the leather is, it's rather soft and supple. I find it very comfortable to fold it back and hold the folded side. I actually find it more comfortable than the original cover which is extremely rigid.

It is easy to fold back but I find I am reading it more with the cover open, like a book. I sometimes have it propped up on a table, or propped up on my knees but I sort of like it open.

Betsy,

Great photos! I noticed that you only have 2 pieces of velcro on the back-did you add a 3rd, or is 2 enough? I am so torn about the design and the velcro vs. corner issue that I haven't placed my order yet!!!
Not photos of my Kindle, but I do only have 2 pieces and feel they're enough after I put an extra piece of plastic in the back cover (I removed the one from the front cover which I felt offered enough protection). The new Oberon covers come with three pieces of velcro.

Whoops, I thought that was your Kindle! Thanks for the info, and does the cover come w/the 2 pieces of plastic as well?
