Great holiday thread!

My criteria for a cover are simple but apparently difficult to find.

-actual Leather
-no storage pockets/cardholders/cupholders/ice cream dispensers. Just a cover.
-dark interior
-no flaps involved in the closure apparatus that stick out when open.
-non-hinge system

The Oberon is about as close as it seems to get. I can forgive the inside pocket since it's rather discrete. My other candidate is the yet to be released Octovo.

I went this stock lighted cover for my K3 but I did customize it with Avery labels sticker paper (sort of skinned it). I also bought some iron on transfer paper, which can't be used on leather but I may get a canvas cover for my K2 and use the transfer paper on it.

you are a very naughty person, Kindlekitten. Instead of playing World of Warcraft with my honey, I have spent the last two hours trying to decide on a cover image and color on the oberon site. I think I have it down to the dragon or the dragonfly, but according to the site, the blue covers are subject to fading. These covers are just awsome.

I've had the blue roof of heaven cover for over 2 years now. I haven't had any fading. it even spent the summer with a pre-teen!

Very nice - I like it. Never thought to do that!

I love Oberon covers. They are the most beautiful but I am too spoiled by my integrated reading light to change. I hope one day Oberon offers something simlilar. In the meantime, I do like the idea of sprucing up the lighted cover a bit.

I like my Oberon more than I would want the internal light. but then again, I don't see a K3 in my future any time soon (I said that about the K2 as well)

I have the blue Roof of Heaven cover for my future K3. I actually bought the cover first, and then I ordered a K3 . Also have the green dragonlfy pond cellphone sleeve for my iPhone.

Now I'm contemplating buying a small journal cover and adjusting it for my Sony 650.

Morning. Oberon artwork looks nice. Must admit that I really like the Amazon lighted cover. Gives me pease of mind to always have the light with me - just in case.
Merry Xmas to all

I was searching for a cover for my Ectaco JBL and started to save the links that I had found

I couldn't find anything for my JBL, but I sure found a lot of Kindle (and Sony, Nook, iPad and Kobo) case, cover, sleeve, skins links which if you want this to be a one stop reference list a Kindle user might like to see....

the original information was at: https://docs.google.com/document/pub...hoDiT6EWlUWDPU

One person reported trouble with the google link so I posted the info here at MR but in the JBL sub forums...

http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...73#post1270973

But I broke the info down in sections and made an index:

Kindle cases - new brand

Hello book lovers,

We're making leather e-reader covers and at the moment setting up an online shop.
So I'd like to know if anybody would be interested in last generation Kindle covers (handmade by professional bookbinders, ) so that we decided on whether it makes sense to implement worldwide delivery (we're located in Russia). You can see examples attached.
I'd really appreciate your opinion

Merry Christmas and a good read to all

P.S. grey and white ones have elastic straps
