Very interesting, because otherwise it looks identical. From what source was your Cybook purchased?

Yes, those are pockets and a pen holder. I've found m-edge's site, and here's the cover: http://www.buymedge.com/p_CybookExL.html

I bought it with my Cybook in www.apolloxxi.com. It was the same price as the Bookeen's shop one and I didn't notice that it was different.

I've purchased the red (wine actually) leather cover from Bookeen and it is really nice, it fits perfectly, more slim than the previous (hideous) brown one and well crafted. It was about time Bookeen made available a decent cover.
It seems like leather, (at least it is written on the back "genuine leather") and inside is like suede.
The only "drawback" is the light, because now that I can see it blinking it is a little distracting, but I' m getting used to it and in a few days I think I won't even motice it anymore.
Really happy with it!

Awwww, that's no fair!
Of course now I'm going to jump in and get one, can't resist the new lower price nearly as well as I was able to resist the original price.

I've got the same one and I love it. I've had it for about six weeks now, reading several hours every day (a bit less now as I just started studying again) and it's really like new.

Just one thing, The book in the cover is on the right side, but sometimes I like to read with the book on the left side (in bed, lying on my side), and what I've been doing lately is putting the book the other way around in the cover, top on the bottom side, which allows you to turn it around. The openings of course do not coincide any more, but the only important button is the one to turn pages, and if you press on the leather where the button is situated it will work fine.

On the other hand those complaining about the lack of a hole where the indicating light is situated, I think you can cut a small hole with a sharp cutter, same with the side buttons.

I usually just fold the cover back, but then I don't mind having fold marks in my cover. If it was a 'dead tree' book I would never break the spine that way. However, for my Cybook it works great and gives me somewhere to clip on my booklight.

I have the black cover that was in the deluxe package (bought it 3/4 months ago), and I can't fold it away, sadly.
The inside (that looks like suede) is not long enough to allow the cover to fold over.

I'm just curious to see if I'm the only one in that case.

Nope, I can't fold my cover eighter. I guess that's normal for the new standard covers

Thanks for your reply, I guess I'll have to think and see if I consider being able to fold the cover important enough to buy another cover.

I can't fold mine neither.

Why don't you try the way I said before, putting the cybook the other way around in the cover, you'll find you're perfectly able to use it and when you read, as I do, in bed, support the book the other way around, and push the buttons through the cover.

I'll give it a try and see the result.
Thanks for mentioning your suggestion again, I hadn't noticed it at first.

what cover do you have? I have the Brown Deluxe jacket and I can fold it easily (no fold marks either).

I have the black (non leather) cover which comes with the deluxe-package at the moment.

I just received my deluxe dark brown cover and it folds back just fine. The front cover edge meets up with the back cover edge. It creates a kind of triangle shape as it doesn't fold flat, but this works fine for me. The suede on the inside seems to give me some extra 'grip' when the cover is folded
