Hi,

Do you have any experiences with this cover from Speck?

http://www.speckproducts.com/ereader...obo-touch.html

It looks good, simple, just what I need, but I'm concerned that it looks like the inside of the front cover has a "bezel" or something of the size of the screen (why did they do that???), and I prefer that the cover I buy doesn't touch the screen when I close it :S

i'm searching for a nice cover for my kobo touch, and there's a lot of choice. One thing i'm wondering though: why isn't there a cover that looks like a book.

Like the bookbook covers for mac and ipad.

There was one done by Moleskine that was real pretty... and Chapters Indigo in Canada is selling a "canvas bookstyle" that's close.

Old fashioned bookcases like these?
http://www.klevercase.co.uk/

They're from a company that specializes in making dummy books
http://www.manorbindery.co.uk/



If you're from the Netherlands I found them at the easereader.nl webshop which is (if you live here) cheaper than ordering directly from the company (with shipping et all)

Of course you can also make one yourself!

Those Verso covers are really nice, but damn, 55 or 65 euro, that's more than half the price of the Touch itself :X

You mean this one right? http://www.skindigitalstore.com/prod...over-Flip.html

It depends on what kind of light, with what kind of clip... It doesn't look like it can clip onto the Touch itself. It might be able to clip over the entire top with Touch and cover in between the clip... Or if you have a bendable light, you could clip it onto the side of the flap that you flip over if that makes sense. Safest is to go and look at one... (But I know I know, shopping from the settee is much more fun )

Yes that's the one Mrs_Often, and you are sooo right, shopping from my nice warm sofa is way better than going out into the cold . I'm very spoilt.
Anyway as i mentioned in another post as I just might be able to get the Glo i better hold off for covers as the Glo is slightly smaller than the Touch. (It would be!!)
