Front cover only?

Does anyone make a cover/case that only covers the front of the Nook? I just don't understand buying a cover that almost DOUBLES the size of the great bit of hardware. I want to add as little bulk while still protecting the screen when I stick it in a bag or briefcase.

I think there was a cover like this for the original nook but I can't find one for the touch.

Thanks in advance.

an easel cover is the closet I can think of to what you are suggesting

I didn't see that one in my local B&N. Is it really any less bulky than the others?

Thanks.

No - it doubles the thickness of the NT.

I'd like a front-only cover too.

Here's the really disappointing thing... my Nook, in a cover becomes BIGGER then my Sony PRS in it's cover. Truly sad.

I'm really looking for something like the covers on the new Ipad 2's. That would be great.

Completely agree - that's a brilliant design - typical Apple.
