Using M-Edge

I got an M-Edge cover during the $14.95 sale and really like its looks. But something bothers me. How do you deal with the loose strap when reading? It's like a tongue hanging out and I try my best to fold it back or off to the side when reading but it doesn't work as well as the no strap original. If not for this detail, it would completely beat the old cover for me. As it is, I may shift back and forth to see which I like.

I tuck the strap under the edge of the book, but leave it sticking out about 1/2 to 3/4 inch. It provides a sort of "notch" to rest my hand on and support the book. Quite comfortable for me.

I fold it back and into the slot used to close the cover. Like rjfarrell, I find it gives my right hand something to rest on when I'm reading with one hand.

But to fold it back into the slot, don't you have to fold the book cover back?

Yes........which makes it even easier to hold by slipping your fingers between the cover and back.

I agree, I fold the whole cover back and slip it into the slot, it is super easy to hold with one hand.

Since it's about the turning pages buttons' height, I simply end up keeping it out of the screen with my hand- either sticking out or folding back. I prefere to keep the "bookish" look in the whole Reader + cover combo, so I don't usually fold back the left side of the cover, unless I'm reading in landscape mode

I fold the back cover back and tuck the end of the flap into the back cover and easily hold it with my hand between the covers. When I use my mighty bright, I clip it to the back cover and it offers illumination without any glare.
