I've now made three of these Leonardo Kindle cases. Since I only need one, I've put the other two up for auction on Ebay. To check it out, go to Ebay and search Leonardo Kindle Case.

These are lovely cases, but I just have to know - did you price them at $300 because of the time required to make them and the materials costs? Or are you testing the market to see what it will bear? I'm never one to turn my nose up at cases based on price alone (I love Vaja products and have paid more than $100 for their phone and PDA cases before), but this is more than I was expecting for these...

They're priced based on the time I put into making them -- the materials are probably less than half of the minimum bid. Actually, if I consider the opportunity costs of my time, I should have priced them much higher. I really don't need to sell them (no, I'm not testing the waters, and I won't be making any others), and if the bids are not forthcoming, I'll just hang onto them to use as gifts for family and friends when they buy Kindles.

1. The majority of leather comes from animals killed for other reasons than their skin.
2. Much leather is recycled.
3. Leather is biodegradable and not a disposal problem that synthetics (e.g. petroleum products) are.
3. Changing your name to 'Crusader' is weird, but adding 666 is just creepy.

Such a lovely cover for a not so useful device.

No one buys it? Not useful? I take it you, like many who bash the Kindle, have never seen one. Have you taken a look at the waiting list on Amazon or the resell market on eBay?

These criticisms from people who obviously have never used a Kindle are almost laughable.

I think the Kindle was the best technology purchase I have ever made. I use it all the time, and when friends recommend books to read, I just download them. For travelers, it's a joy. It's like carrying a suitcase full of books in a package the size of one rather small book.

Smile Kindle holder

My solution to the Kindle holder problem was to paste velcro strips to the device and the holder. Keeps the device inside the holder just fine.
