SO,
I like to take my kindle to bed naked, I mean the kindle.
I don't want a case attached to it getting in my way, and adding weight. Captain Picard reads in bed and HE doesn't have a case for his cool looking StarTrek ebook reader, so I don't either!

But I DO need a case for carrying it around, for example I can't just throw her in my motorcycle tank bag naked, she'll get damaged! So I went to the store where my daughter works and got what I considered to be a pretty spiffy carrying case. It was only $20 and I didn't have to wait for it to ship AND I got my daughters employee discount (so it was actually $16).


The downside is that my girlfriend is a luddite and she doesn't like the case, she thinks that its too effeminate. No biggy, I just don't need her snickering...

Anyway, if you have a Vera Bradley reseller nearby you can stop by and see how it fits.

I once had a boyfriend who refused to wear a red shirt because it had faded and he thought it looked pink (which it didn't) ugh.  So, I think it's great to see a man willing to use something most would see as "girly".  Heck, Stephen King has a pink Kindle, I see nothing wrong with that.  The most important thing is that it protects your investment.

I love the Yellow Bird fabric.

That's the Vera Bradley Purse Cosmetic. It fits perfectly. Sadly it's been discontinued. You won't be able to find it in the stores much longer, but ebay should always have it :) I have 3 of them.

If you want to see just how much you can fit in that case:



Not that you need to throw that much in there....

Personally, I think you should have gotten one like mine.



Only $9.99 at Target - and it goes with absolutely nothing!
Hey - when it goes with absolutely nothing - it goes with absolutely everything! I like it!

Kirwood,  LOL... you are soooooo secure in your masculinity!  If I were your girlfriend, I would tease you endlessly though....  It just reminds me of the friends episode where Joey walked in with a "man bag" and all his friends keep making fun of his purse!  He kept saying, "Its not a purse, its a BAG!"  You can say, "Its not a purse, its a Kindle Case!".
