Luxury cover just arrived -- questions

Just received my new cover yesterday. The Amazon bought pen fits the loop perfectly. The cover is slightly bigger than I hoped for, but looks great.

One question I have regarding using the cover. Do any of you flip the front cover back over the back cover when reading one handed? That is what I did with the Sony cover for my 505. The cover is new and I cannot do it without forcing it. But without folding it all the way back, it is not comfortable to hold in one hand and controlling the flip bar for page turns.

A pleasant surprise is that the pinholders look very sturdy. The leather has a very slight grey tinge to it, so it probably won't look dirty too easily. The inside of the left side is completely stitched shut -- I remember some of you saying that you put reinforcements inside, so you actually opened it and resealed it?

Yes I do, in fact it gives more then one comfortable reading positions which is good. I do remember the cover was a little surly in the beginning. success!

And the cover still looks good after you did that? No crease marks or microcracks?

I don't flip it back like that. Seems to be OK they way I hold it one handed. I balance the cover/reader in the palm of my left hand, with my fingers behind it and my thumb in front. From that position my thumb can reach the flipbar to push it left or right. I've got fairly long fingers though.

The iRex luxury cover should already be reinforced in the front. Are you sure that wasn't someone talking about a different cover?

Let's say it's hard to preserve the original shape, especially because it's white. The leather kind of looks used now. but there are no cracks and looks ok.
