Patricia, congrates on ordering one.
Ruby, thank you so much for letting me know. I'll keep that in mind when I order again. For now, I'm stuck with my UPS ground shipping method. I don't think that UPS works on the weekends.  :'( I am thinking of saving up to try out their journal, as I've never used a refillable journal before. If anyone has their journals, let me know if they lie flat, as I do artwork in mine. I keep a small moleskine journal with me in my purse & also use the larger size ones at home. Yes, the snow is piled high & looks so pretty. It's also below freezing here as well. Our mailman said not to go out today. That the streets were terrible. Then he said that he wished that he could have stayed home. I felt so bad for him. The weather on the 24th is supposed to be snow, freezing rain, then rain, I think. That's when my cover is supposed to arrive.

You're' quite welcome, Toby. I don't know anything about the journals, but I bet those that have experience w/them will chime in and let you know, or you can always just email your questions directly to Oberon. They reply very quickly. We got a bit more snow last night and the winds are kicking up, not a good day to be outside. I am baking cookies w/my daughters today, house smells so good! Stay warm and happy kindling!

Toby, I got my new cover today! It was very easy to put in and the buttons that are covered by the corners still work very well. I will read w/new one tonight and compare how I like this vs. the velcro. Either way I'm glad I have both. I hope yours arrives soon :)

gardenck - Thanks for mentioning that. That would be funny if he was the 1 delivering my cover. I supposed he's taking home his or your packages. Would be hard to hide them from him.
Ruby - Congrates!!!! I'm so happy that you got your cover!!!!! So far, the corners sound good as well. Some people mentioned that if the corners are too tight, that you can stretch them a bit. I'm also glad to hear that the buttons, under the straps, work just fine. Yes, let us know how reading with it works out. Yes, it's freezing outside. Tomorrow will be another cold day. Yesterday, it also snowed more. I'm not going to take my kindle with me again tomorrow, because of the below freezing temps. I read in the car, as a passenger, of course. -:) By the time the car warms up, I'm almost home. I will miss my Kindie big time. However, I did stick a dead tree book in my handbag.  Enjoy your cookies & stay warm & happy reading.
Now for my cover...I can't wait!!!! I want it now!!!! NOW!!! LOL!

yes it very hard to hide delivers from him...my office/my mothers /friends..all go thru his center...so he is usually told about them...so this year i had to have them delivered to his father..they go thru a different center..i was waiting for one more delivery and was worried because his dad would be out of town..but it got delivered to my house instead of his..

ps...i hope i will be getting my butterfly cover and decal in 2 more days...cant wait..

also i had my kindle with me all day yesterday ...in my car ..while i shopped and ran errands..i had appts..and was going to have a little reading time..and it was fine..no problems at all..

Toby, the cormers on mine were not tight at all, I wonder if they adjusted them after hearing that they were a little bit tight. I read w/it last night and it was great and for some reason, this one seemed to bend back even easier than my World Tree. I'll switch back and forth as the mood strikes me.......I didn't have my K w/me yesterday either as it was too cold. I'd rather leave it at home where I know it's safe and sound. Your cover should be arriving tomorrow!!! I bet I'll be able to hear your shrieks of joy all the way in NY!

I'm VERY impressed with Oberon's customer service. I ordered a Tree of Life cover after talking with them and being told that they didn't plan on releasing any new designs for at least 6 months. I specifically called and asked if they were going to because it's always my luck that as soon as I buy something, they release a design/color I would have preferred..ipod put out the 160gb 6 weeks after I bought my 80gb and 2 weeks after I got a red nano they put out a pink one. Imagine my surprise when just a few days after I received it, I saw the new Butterfly covers (actually I was more upset than surprised). I had just gotten the Tree of Life and a new leather M Edge, so I figured it would be awhile before I'd get another one. After I realized I didn't care for the M-Edge and would send it back, my husband told me I could have the Tree of Life cover early (it was a Christmas present) and I could order a Butterfly one to replace it. BTW, the Tree of Life cover is beautiful. However, when I opened it up, I didn't feel the earth move, see the heavens part or hear the angels sing. I would have been happy with it until they released newer designs if they hadn't of put that Butterfly out there. The more I thought about it though, the more I wanted the Butterfly instead of the Tree of Life.

I sent Oberon an email early Friday morning asking if I could return the Tree of Life and purchase a Butterfly. I explained I'd like to purchase instead of exchange because it was my Christmas present. Well, I waited all day and all weekend and didn't hear a peep from them. I would have called them but I had/have a nasty case of laryngitis. After not hearing from them, I figured my chances were pretty slim I'd have my Oberon in time for Christmas.

Anyway, I got an email back yesterday apologizing for not getting back to me on Friday (they're very busy), and apologizing about being told they weren't releasing any other covers (they had such a huge request for it, they released it early), and that they had sent me a new Butterfly cover with Velcro via Express Mail. They included a return label so I can mail back the Tree of Life. I'm beyond thrilled. Hopefully I'll have it tomorrow.

Now I just need to go find a new skin that will go with this cover. Maybe this cover will cure my addiction to buying Kindle Covers...at least until they come out with more designs (I'm so there if they do River Garden)

Heather, wow, that is truly excellent CS and I'm so happy for you that you'll be able to get your Butterfly cover now! This makes me feel even better about supporting companies like Oberon, one that goes way above and beyond for their customers. I will cross my fingers for you that your cover arrives tomorrow, what a GREAT Christmas gift!

I just had my first day with the kindle in a butterfly cover. It is really pretty. I did try to do the whimsical (sp?) skin and I did not like that. it was too dark next to not quite white page and the dark inside the cover. I love the cover with naked kindle its perfect.

KC, I do like that one and have considered it, but it's a bit dark for me. To be honest, I'd choose the Her Absraction skin again if I didn't think Leslie and Sir William would keel over at the thought of Edgar being back in pink. (Shhh...don't tell them that I've requested Pink Tranquility and Jolie be made into Kindle skins). Pink and purple go so good together.

Sylvia, I can't wait to get the cover. I have the business card holder in purple Fairy, so I do know what the color will look like. Edgar nekkid? Oh heavens no! That's more scandalous than him being dressed in pink! I had the Crest one on him for a few days, but that one was way too busy for me. Right now, he's sporting Flower Burst Blue (The people at DecalGirl love me. I think they have my address memorized by now!)

gardenclc - I hear you. I can't wait for you as well. I love the covers with color, but the tree of life was the only wrap around & I love trees, so I that was my choice.
Ruby - It's ALMOST here!!! I checked when I got home from work & it was less than 2 hours away at the UPS place around noontime. Then awhile ago, I checked again. It's heading to a UPS place a 20 minutes to a half hour from here. Which means that tomorrow it is & hopefully it will come early. I keep having to open the front door & checking & standing on my tiptoes to see if I can see anything from the window. It's been hard since the snow has pushed down a tree limb effectively blocking all but a square inch in front of my view of the door. LOL! That's interesting about your new cover folding back easier. Now, I'm curious as to why. I'm glad that the leather straps are not too tight. You might be right about Oberon fixing things with the straps after people complained about them being too tight. When I got my Red M-edge, my left corner strap was very tight & now it has loosened a bit. My father's Red m-edge didn't have any tight straps.
Kirsten - thank you, if your comment was meant for me.
luvmy4brats- That's a wonderful story. Oberon rocks!!! I can well imagine that Oberon was busy with all of us placing our orders at the same time. LOL! I wish I could see their faces with all the orders coming in & people calling up. I hope you do get yours soon & please tell us how you like them. I'm not sure if it was you or someone else that mentioned the pink skin with purple. That would be so pretty. I really enjoy reading your excitement about the covers & the skins. Oh, is your cover velcro or corners? I like the RiverGarden. I think that's in red. I love red...green...purple....blue.... LOL! ...not black though.
Sylvia- congrates on your new cover.

thank you toby,
I am enjoying this cover more and more. I have the velcro as I live in alaska and use USB port. I worried about the straps and buttons. I also got over the velcro thing when I used it with the original cover. I can't see ever replacing this one It is really pretty. It is comfortable to hold and I am proud to show it off.

Yipppppppppppeeeeeeeeee!!! It's here!!!! It's here!!!! Ruby, did you hear me screaming. LOL! It's beautiful!!! The artwork/tooling is so detailed intense. I wasn't sure if I would like the brown color, but actually the darker brown background makes the lighter brown tree pop out. If anyone is thinking of getting The Tree of Life, the brown is a darker brown, but the 2 tone brown doesn't make it too dark. I was lucky today. I cancelled my plans today & stayed home. The roads were still icy to travel on. Other deliveries arrived. I heard truck noises...no it was the trash men. I tried to get on my laptop to see if UPS was out for delivery. AOL wouldn't let me in. I went to my desktop. Got in. Said they were out on deliveries at around 2:30AM. LOL! Little elves delivery while people slept. Then I was walking back to the den. Thought I heard a bell or was it the TV. I had been looking out the window all day so far. This time around 2PM, the truck was here. I opened the door, saw 2 men in the front seat of the truck. Waved to them & said thank you. I opened up the box & my cover was wrapped like a present in brown paper. I also got a key chain charm!!! That was so nice of them. Okay, now, I got to get that velcro on. I guess I'll pull off the velcro & see if any needs to be trimmed a bit. Then, I guess I'll put it back on the loops. Then take off the paper & place back of Kindle on. I think that's my plan. :) Any suggestions, let me know.
Toby....so excited & doing the Happy Dance!!!!!

Just in time for Christmas.  Yippeeeeeeee!

A few of us at least have found that separating the two parts of the velcro and putting the soft fuzzy part on the Kindle works better than placing the Kindle on the adhesive back of the fuzzy part while it is still attached to the hard loops.  Otherwise you could end up with velcro just a bit in places where you don't want it.

I can so relate to tracking the UPS delivery progress! I have done that many times when ever I expect to receive something. I really don't know why the blue cover seems to fold back easier, it could just be my imagination. Do you have the old m-edge? I have the new one in pebbled navy blue, but it's sitting quietly by itself now that Oberons are here. I found it hard to get the K into that one. I did just get the light that goes w/it, and I may switch and use that one for travel purposes since the light fits so nicely into that cover. Decisions, decisions!

Hooraaaaaaaaaaaay, yes, I heard you, Toby!!! I am so happy for you that your beloved cover is in your hands now......phew, now you can really enjoy reading your K :) I got the charm w/both of my covers too, it's a very nice touch for them to add that on. Good luck getting the velcro on. I separated it from the case first and then trimmed and attached to the back on top of my skin. I don't plan on changing it so I left it on and it fits just fine into the one w/corners too.......for future reference in the event you order another!
Happy Holidays,
Ruby
