How much darker is the grey than on the product photos? I really like the cover, but I absolutely hate grey

Also do fingerprints show on the inside?

It is a dark grey - if the photo's on the website were to be graded a 1 (light grey) and then black was a 5 I would say it it a 3.5.

And no - fingerprints do not show on the inside

Those are cute - but I am not a fan of elastic corners . . . want to ping it like knicker elastic!

So pleased you got my list for an Oberon cover

I'm enjoying my official Kobo Glo cover, but I sometimes like to simply hold a Kobo Glo naked, especially at night when I'm reading.

What's a good sleeve that one can put a naked Kobo Glo into - slipping it in and out (and without leaving fiber residue on the screen)? I also don't want to mark in any way the rubbery black on the reader.

I should add that I would prefer (if available) a type of slip case where the Reader slips in from the top and pulls out from the top.

Any suggestions (and photos), please?

Thanks.




Don

I won't post a pic holding my Glo naked while reading at night , but I like my Case Crown sleeve. It says it is for Nook, but it would fit any 6" ereader with room to spare.

There is a picture of it beside my Glo in Post #10 of this thread.

Oooh that's exactly what I want as well. I started off with number 11 from the list Peter gave (see pic; actually, I still use it). It's nice and doesn't leave fibre all over the screen and doesn't mark my Glo anywhere... plus, I find the top-and-right opening easier than I imagine a "top laoder" would be because you have more room to manoeuvre the reader into the sleeve. Also, it protects the reader from all sides and doesn't leave an opening for scratches at the top. The down side is the front is not reinforced. So where it's protected against scratches, if something prods into the screen in my bag or somewhere, the screen will not be protected against cracks (Oh, and it does say "Kindle" on the front band.)

I've been interested in the Case Crown sleeve that treadlightly mentioned (it's pretty!), but I don't really want the extra room for my Glo to wobble about in, and Case Crown doesn't seem to have anything* for Kobo – although Amazon thinks otherwise**. Treadlightly, is the front reinforced? That Amazon link also shows completely hard case Case Crowns for Kobo Touch... hmmm... but still, not the top loading sleeve you're after. Do you want that to be reinforced? Otherwise any old neoprene sleeve would do you fine (pic 2).


*I'm not sure if that's the correct Case Crown site. I can't find any others though.
**These even specifically says they're for the Glo...

While I can't help you with this query directly, I understand that the Bill & Melissa Gates Foundation has started up a project looking at this very thing.

Neither side is reinforced with a solid material. You could slide a piece of plastic in the front pocket. The foam is about 5mm thick. BUT my Glo in its official sleepcover (grey fabric) fits in the CaseCrown sleeve, providing screen protection. I never fully click the Glo into the sleepcover because I read naked while at home. I use both the sleepcover and sleeve while on the go because I like to take my cord with me to work.
