Post Big Ups for Moleskine Kindle Covers

You ever hear the expression, "it must be the shoes"? I think that's spike lee. Anyway, it must be the cover.

I am careful with my DX. However, I recently dropped it two or three times in one day (I blame fatigue.). That moleskine cover absorbs shock like nobody's business. I'm willing to bet there isn't a case out there as durable, spill-resistant, or protective (foot in mouth).

I would be up the creek without a paddle, and I mean it, without my kindle.

If you pour soda on your moleskine cover, you don't even have to wipe it off, practically. That moleskine material absorbs it like it never happened.

That cover was pricey, but without it, I'd be without a kindle now.

I noticed they stopped making them or something. Anyway, you could throw your kindle on the floor in that thing and it wouldn't do anything to the kindle.

Thanks for reading. Feel free to talk about your case, moleskine or not.

Of course now that I posted about it, it'll probably break in half or my kindle for that matter. Having car trouble after I posted about it elsewhere on the net.

Is that desirable? I'd have thought personally that a cover which didn't soak up liquids would be preferable.

That's what I was thinking. I sprayed a fabric sealant/repellent on my M-Edge cover for just that reason.

Yes, I've waterproofed my Kindle cover for the same reason, using a waterproofing spray I bought for use on my hiking boots .
