Ha, that's an understatement! Impossible is more like it. It took me almost a half hour (and a near panic attack) to get mine out.

However, I eventually came up with a fix for that. (described in post #42) Now my kindle comes out with no trouble.
Correction: It has no magnetic closure. I have edited my post above. Oops.

Also, to remove it, i had to wrap a cloth over the metal protrusion from a stapler and use that as a wrench to "dig out" the PW from the unofficial case. I needed the help of a friend as we slowly levered the sucker out!!!

Frequent removal of PW is NOT recommended

For her it is going to be the purple, for me I am not sure yet. She will like it - the official cover for the KT in black she likes. So I don't see what would be wrong with PW one.

The purple border around the paperwhite while reading is what could end up bothering her, though the purple is not as bright as some of the other colors.

Vmurph, I thought the light blue looked intriguing as well, though I don't usually get anything in blue. It looks like such a pretty summery shade.

So what do you think of the leather? Does it seem genuine to you? Also, how does the color compare to the photos? Mine is black, so I have no frame of reference.

Is the light brown exactly the same as the photo? If not, is it lighter or darker, and by how much?

Certainly isn't quite up to par with the official cover, but at about 1/4 of the price, that does look pretty darn good Thanks for taking those photos!

I ordered one from EBay on the 25th and another for a gift from AliExpress on the 27th. Haven't received either. The one from AliExpress has tracking. It was mailed on the 29th, processed through sort facility on the 30th and has said Origin Post is Preparing Shipment ever since. Has anyone else had this result?

Mine from aliexpress says this:
Wed, 28.11.2012 20:16 h
China
The shipment has arrived at the parcel center of origin
Fri, 30.11.2012 15:13 h
China
The shipment will be transported to the destination country and, from there, handed over to the delivery organization.

I'd guess yours is still sitting in customs, but that's really just a guess. Shipping times from China to anywhere else seem to be all over the place. Same applies even to shipping stuff from the US to Germany. I've placed several orders with threadless.com and while the last one took merely 8 days, I've had others take at least 4 weeks. So with cheap international shipping: be prepared to wait

I ordered mine on 11/25 when I started this thread, and am still waiting. I don't have a tracking number, but it shows an estimated delivery date of 11/27-12/10. Hmmmm.
