Soooo. My kindle 2 will be here this week and I have yet to decide on a cover. As far as I can tell the m-edge covers won't be available for as long as a month. I think I want one of those covers. Did/does anyone use theirs without a cover? Does this create any problems? Is it hearty enough to be schlepped around in a computer bag with my laptop? I will be reading mine on my subway commute.
