Too Many Kindle Covers And Cases!
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

That's right, I said there are too many Kindle covers and cases!

I would love to have the perfect cover for my Kindle 3, and I would if it didn't take a week just to get halfway through the list of choices.

Everyone claims to have the best quality, most attractive, most popular, most....everything. How in the world is a person supposed to sift through all of the choices.

There are too many Kindle covers and cases, guys!

After a few days of searching around, I decided that I needed to take a break and just list the features I wanted in a cover and start a search checklist.

KINDLE ONLY PLEASE

I decided that I needed to find a case that is only made for the latest generation Kindle. Why?

I want my cover fit like a glove. I don't want any room for it to wiggle around, because that can cause micro scratches on the screen. It won't matter if the liner is made from the softest surface in the universe. If it wiggles, it will get scratches. After a while, it will have a lot of scratches.

So, only search for Kindle covers and cases designed ONLY for the latest generation Kindle.

LEATHER, NOT PLEATHER

To me, leather equals longevity. I want a durable cover that can stand up to rough treatment, because being tossed around in my bag can put the case through some rigors. I have textbooks, keys, and other electronic devices in the same bag.

Okay, now we are getting somewhere. I am seeing the list of covers getting smaller. Yay!

I DON"T LIKE SNAPS

I had an an executive Iphone case one time. It was super fancy and had pockets for business cards, a memo pad holder, and some other bells and whistles. You know the executive binder type of case. It just happened to be made for carrying an Iphone too. The one glaring issue that I never thought would be a problem was the snap closure it had. I almost cried when I snapped the case close one day without realizing my Iphone wasn't properly seated in its sleeve. Crack!

Yep, I cracked the screen. So, this time I won't be buying any Kindle covers and cases with snap closures.

HEY, LIGHTED KINDLE COVERS....CALL ME

I love my Kindle, and I like to read outside at night sometimes. Unfortunately for me, the Kindle doesn't have a back light. I would like to find a case that either holds a light or has its own light. That would be a neat trick. I have seen a few somewhere along the way, but they were poorly designed. So, let's add it to the list and keep looking.

I'M LOOKING FOR SOMETHING...NOT IN BLACK OR BROWN

This may be the hardest request to feel. It seems like all the leather Kindle covers and cases come in Black or Brown only. Not that it's the end of the world, but I like Blue and Orange. Maybe there is something out there if I look hard enough. Hey, what do I have to lose.

Okay, time to test the search list...........

Holy cow, worked! I think I just found the perfect cover for my kindle, and it took five minutes instead of five days! If only I had the checklist before I made the mistake of just searching for "Kindle covers and cases".

Want to know what I found? Official lighted leather Kindle covers that come in multiple colors.
