We are!! (or I am - he is working ha ha ha) I forgot my usb downloady thing for the camera so no pics until I get back. The museums don't open until 10 so I'm killing time this morning until I came go be tourist lady.chynared21 said:Hope you two are enjoying yourselves )
I find I read with it flat more often with the Oberon but I do like bending it back. The bending came in handy on the planes this week. (I felt like a sardine in a can)Andra said:OK, my purple Iris journal arrived the day before Thanksgiving. I like the way it holds the original cover - it's pretty secure. However, it's hard to bend back the journal cover along with the original one, so I end up leaving it flat to read. Nothing wrong with that, really - just another adjustment.
I do have my eye on the Creek Bed Maple pattern. It is another warp-around design. And I think if it appeared as a Kindle cover, I'd have to get one.
I definitely want a different skin now that I have the cover. I asked DecalGirl about doing the Van Gogh Irises in the Kinlde skin and they said to give them a few weeks...
Mine folds back as easily as my old M-Edge does and it has gotten more "loose" on the fold with use. Try showing him the trick of holding it with your hand in one of the pockets. I used to do the slot thing with my M-Edge but find I prefer sticking my hand in the pocket now.Wisteria Clematis said:After all the angst and tribulation I went through to get one of the Oberon covers with corners to give to my husband for our anniversary yesterday, he turned out not to like it very much! He tried to sound very enthusiastic when he unwrapped it and he did love the tool work on the cover (I gave him the Celtic Hounds pattern). But he thought it folded back when opened a lot more awkwardly than his medge cover, and there is no way to 'fasten' it to stay open while you read like you can with the medge by slipping the leather tab into its slot. He hasn't actually said he doesn't like it.....but I noticed this morning that he has already put his kindle back into the old medge cover. Sigh. I really thought this time I had found the perfect gift. Guess I should have gone with some kind of new tool gizmo from the hardware store.
The bottom line seems to be that kindle covers are a very personal preference. What one person may absolutely adore may just not 'feel right' to someone else.
