I too am waiting for a cover to arrive. Until then I came up with a perfect solution to keep my nook safe. My solution works great for me. As an added bonus people tend to give me more space when they see me carrying an oven mitt around in public. It even has a handy carrying handle. Since I am a member of the oven mitt of the month club I will always have a mitt that is appropriate. I can't wait till Handel's birthday!
