The first week I used my Kindle with no cover and liked it fine... I am now using the original cover and have no problem with it. I have used it on the sofa, in the truck, in the hammock and in the bed and it hasn't slipped or fallen out on my head.Vampyre said:I keep hearing people talking about how their Kindles have a tendancy to fall out of the original covers unless corrected with some velcro. I'd hate to have mine pop out somewhere. Even if I use mine with out a cover, I'll still use it for storage while on the go. The screen looks pretty exposed to me. It must be protected.
