Does the Book Armor Cover fit over the M-Edge, or only work w/ the stock Sony?

Title says it all. I am on the fence about ordering the Book Armor case. I would like something rigid to protect my new 505 while in my purse, but want a different soft cover. Feedback most appreciated!!

I don't know about the old M-Edge covers (that weren't designed to hold the [someday] eLuminator light) but the new covers (that do have the space for the light) do NOT fit in the Book Armor. So far, the only cover that I've had actually fit in the Book Armor is the original cover.

I *am* expecting a new, lovely Oberon cover to show up in the mail in the next week or so. I can let you know at that point if the Oberon covers fit in the Book Armor.

Anyone have pictures of it in real life? The pictures online are really crappy looking and not very convincing!

I have no pictures. But to be honest, the low-quality pictures are what you expect. It's durable and ugly. I was disappointed when I first got my Book Armor (and I ordered from the US to Korea so 10 day anticipation built up too much) but the disappointment faded after a few days... the case is really strong. I've put mine through a lot already and I'm happy with it thus far.

It's a plain black case...not much to photograph. I like the small webbed nylon strap on the side for carrying.

I've spray painted a stencil on the front of mine, so it's no longer in factory issued condition.

I love that the case is simple, sleek, and very lightweight. I don't need frills, I just want to know that my reader is protected from bumps and drops.

I bought the Book Armour cover at the same time I bought my 505. I inserted the PRS-505 into the case and haven't removed it since. Seven months of being tossed into my gym bag for the commute to and from work and 53 books read and it is still holding up well.
