Obviously, minor tension can be enough to stress that substrate.
And then the display can take harm.
I never put anything on top of my readers. I never transport them without protecting the display. Better safe than sorry...
I do not, in any way, disagree. I'm on my second ereader, having been an idiot on the first one, and not buying a cover.
