How many covers and/or bags did u purchase for your Kindle?

As I sit here debating whether or not to order one of the absolutely cute Borsa Bella bags for my K2 (already own an M-edge cover and love it) I wondered how many covers and/or bags do people own for their Kindles. I have noticed on some of the threads that people own not only the Amazon cover but also an Oberon or other type of cover. Some even own several covers and a Borsa Bella bag. Just curious, how many covers and/or bags do you own to keep your Kindle safe and protected? Why did you decide to purchase more than one? Fashion statement? Just liked the look? Curious.

I've purchased two covers, an Oberon and the M-Edge Prodigy, no cases since I knitted a case, and one skin. I really like both covers and once I get the new light M-Edge is redesigning I'll probably use that cover more. Both cases provide good protection from drops. The case/sock I knitted because I didn't have anything to put my K2 in. I use that mainly around the house as a dust cover.

I only have one cover so far, but I'm sure it won't take too long to get a few more.

The standard Kindle2 cover and a skin. I'm happy with the cover and don't think I'll get another unless the current comes to harm.

I have Kindle 1 and am still using the supplied standard cover with it. For my Sony, my hubby bought me the lighted cover with its built-in light wedge. I'd definitely buy one of those for my Kindle if the light wedge folks would offer one.

So far I picked two cases to use. I have the Amazon Kindle 2 case, and have bought a Noreve Kindle 2 case in Jean Vintage, but so far I'm still waiting for the Noreve to ship. When it comes in, I'll post pictures. (It was quite expensive, but I got a 15% discount). I plan to buy a Bella Borsa bag sometime in June for my birthday. I really want one of the travel bags.

I have an Oberon cover, 1 skin and 2 bags. The only reason I have 2 bags is because I purchased one before BorsaBella began offering her travel bags. I liked the top opening and zipper pocket, so got a new one. I will give the side opening one to my Grandaughter to use as she pleases. She loved it when she saw it. Jeni

One. I bought the Belkin that Amazon sells and am quite happy with it. Although it is not a cover in the sense that you can open it up and the K2 is still attached. It is more of a slip case but provides good protection. I prefer reading my K2 without any adornments.

So far I've only purchased the Amazon cover. I'm very pleased with the cover - it protects the K2 but doesn't add much weight or bulk. Since my K2's got a rather wild skin, I like the look of the plain black cover.

I did buy a Kwik Tek Dry case to protect the K2 at the beach. If someone came out with a cover for the K2 that offered waterproof protection, I'd buy it.

At this point, one Oberon & three BorsaBella bags, one regular, one travel, and one for carrying the K2 without a cover. The Oberon is the true protection for the K2. The two larger bags are really for protecting the Kindle from random rain to & from the car, and for keeping the Oberon from being scratched while in my purse. The smallest bag (BB's naked Kindle bag) is for those times when either the weight of the Oberon is too much for me to carry, or when the size of the purse I'm using is too small to fit the larger cover/bag combos. I did add some additional padding & a rigid piece to the smallest bag for additional protection over the screen. It may not have been necessary, others use that bag daily without issues, but it made me feel better to take the extra step as a precaution.

For longer travel, the larger BB bag becomes my carry case for all the K2 accessories (light, charger, folding easel, etc.) The travel bag, as another person said, doubles as a small purse. The quality on them is high, and I find them pretty versatile.

I'm still thinking about one more cover, but I'm torn. I'd love a second Oberon, but I'm also looking at getting or making something a little less noticeable. It's tough enough to read in public with a Kindle when everyone comes clustering around to ask questions; the Oberon attracts its own share of attention. The new M-Edge Go cover is tempting as it looks very much like a dayplanner or notebook cover--might be a little less obvious?

I've had 4 M-edge covers, tried Oberon, didn't like it and sold it, ordered one from Noereve, totally unsuitable and sent it back. I use one skin, just the top. M-edge covers seem to work the best although they wear out quickly. I put the 'books inside' decal on one of my red leather M-edges. Really sharp!

I just have a skin and an M-edge case but I just saw my cousin's Oberon case and now I may cave and get that. She has the exact same one I was lusting after, too. It's a lot softer than I thought it would be. Of course, it wouldn't go with my skin, so I'd have to get a new one. My husband has the stock case and no skin. He finally bought an SD card. He's a bit more Spartan than me.
