I have the black B&N Lautner cover for my HD which I really like. I just bought an HD+ and am thinking of getting another black Lautner for that as well. I know they are expensive but they are very good quality and protect the device very well.

At any rate, B&N is offering 20% of one item through 10/14. It is not good for Nooks or Nook books, but can be used for accessories not already discounted. So if I get another Lautner, I will use that discount. (Details of the discount are in the deals forum here.)

I bought one. I had a similar case for another device in the past. So I think I will like it. I got the black, those other colors would drive me nuts.

Now we'll have 3 cases for our 3 HD7's...and 2 of those silicone back things. Not to mention the many padded sleeves.

Thank you everyone for all your suggestions.
I ended up just buying one of the 360 swivel ones from eBay. I really liked some of the ones on Amazon, B&N and other websites but the postage to get one shipped to New Zealand was just too much.
The eBay one cost me $15NZD, as opposed to $50-$60 that one from anywhere else would cost.
I will use the eBay one for a while until I determine just how much I even use the HD+ and if it turns out I use it a lot, I might treat myself a better cover for Christmas.

Thanks for the link.

It isn't real leather at all. It's PU leather- leather backing with a polyurethane embossed coating on top. Kind of chintzy, but I wanted something cheap. And that it does seem to be. You're welcome for the link.

OK, that's sort of what I thought. It's just that the description said it was leather. Still a decent looking case though. I love my poetic Dura Book case and it's just PU leather too.

@cortman,

I bought the case you recommended and I just received it.
It looks pretty good, fits the Nook HD+ snugly, works OK as a stand, and adds very little weight.
The cover magnets hold it closed and turn the Nook on and off with no problems.

It's better than I expected for under $10.00. Thanks!

Good to hear. Mine came today, apparently, so I will be testing it out as soon as I get home this evening.

My cover arrived from the States today too. Now I just have to wait for my Nook HD+ to arrive so I can put it in the cover. It was shipped from the freight-forwarding company yesterday and should be in the country in 5-6 days. It will probably then take another day or two to get to me. So exciting!!!
