You know I think with the new design of the Kindle.. it being more sleek like the Sony Reader.. that it will have even more sales.. For the most part people here seem to have the Sony Reader 505 and a few have Kindles.. I think now that the Kindle number will go up.
I like sleek things.. it's such an improvement visually from the first one.

Again with the stupid 'design'! What about folders? No slot for memory card? No international access?

Cars on the road already look alike. Why must e-book readers follow the same road?

Maybe the covers are an attempt to cover up all that white.

Cows are a renewable resource. If not, I wouldn't have had that scrumptus T-Bone steak on the grill this weekend.

What I would like to know is whether the Patagonia cover will fit a Sony 505 with cover. Similar to how the Case Logic mp3 case fit the 500 with cover. No specs for size/fit either on Amazon or Patagonia's site.

Yeah, I know. Try finding shoes that fit without Dora the Explorer on them...Not that I have anything against Dora, but for a 42 year old woman it's a little hard to explain!

A girl's size 2 1/2 roughly translates into about a half to a full size smaller than a women's size 5. And for some reason, a girl's 4 is WAY too big.

Finding "grown up" shoes that fit me is an exercise in frustration.
Kid's sizes use the same scale as men's shoes. The numbers are 1.5-2 off of women's. So that size 4 in kids would be more like a 5.5 in women's. 2 1/2 is like a 4 in women's. Definitely a hard to find size unless you go to a specialty shop. Most women's lines don't even make a 4.

For those who don't want leather, they also have the Executive Jacket with padded synthetic leather exterior and soft grey interior.

They look lovely. I have an older M-Edge case and I do wish they'd change the closure, though. I don't like the tab thing.

A free DVD case does it for me on the PRS-505!
Unfortunately one needs a microwave sized box for the kindle

Wait... is that Patagonia case canvas? Yes... it is.

Good.

Good.
Not good. It's a case, not a cover and what's needed is a cover more so then a case.

And with the sale going on, it costs the same as the one Amazon is selling. But the main difference will be you'll probably have to pay shipping.

I ended up ordering a new style from M-Edge. The Platform Jacket. More colors are available at the M-Edge site than Amazon.
