Hey Tracy, welcome!

I am an M-edge person myself, but I hear that Oberon is coming out with a Kindle cover in the next month. Anyone here have the link to the Oberon website? I think someone posted an Oberon email.....

I ordred this one off Amazon, I am more into cute than leather, and thought this one was pretty unique. They had some other
patterns and also what looked like leather in black and may another color. The company is called Bobarra...

I should get it tomorrow and will report back on the quality.

I like these ones! Quite possibly because the website says San Tropez...

They do look pretty nice though.

I too really like the look of the Stylz Cosmo cover but I'm a bit leery of trying it without having read any reviews. My issue with the m-edge cover was largely the bulky spine, so I'm going to take a closer look at the Noreve option too. That said, I really don't have a problem with the stock Kindle cover; I just want to accessorize.

If anyone has a personal review of the Stylz covers, please share!

well mine came today and so did my Kindle!!! Yippee.


I really like the cover overall. The color of the interiror is different from the photo though, but I like it okay.
It's well padded, light and the Kindle fits well. It is moderatley easy to get it in and does not move around or seem like it
will fall out. It has a magnetized closure which I also like.

Drawbacks, no access to on/off & whisper switches and I could do without the pen holder, which just hampers access to the Kindle.
I am feeling I will use this mostly to store my Kindle & for when I am out and about with it. I think at home, I prefer reading
with no cover...

I also have to say, I think it is overpriced (49.99), by at least $10 or even $20 dollars. If there were more choices that I liked, I probably
would not have bought this one.

Thanks for posting the pictures.  I was curious about the closure.  I think I would like a magnet closure as well, but I'm not sure I like the size of the closing flap.  I currently use the m-edge which can be folded backward and the little flap tucks in its slot in reverse.  Can you do that?  Just wondering. :)

OK. I don't like this one. Not because it isn't a nice looking cover - but because the Kindle in the photo has red letters on the e-ink page and we all know it is only black The photo was doctored to color the text and that just bothers me.

It is blue, but I was referring to the photo in the ad, that I posted previously that shows more of a copper background.

No, I don't thinks so, You can kind of fold it back but you have to force it a bit and I do not want to do that... it
is a little annoying but not too bad.

Octochick,

Oh is that your Kindle? You took that picture? It is fabulous! I think you should sell it to the company for their website! It is certainly more appealing than the first picture you posted and much prettier, too!
