Lightbulb How To Build a Homemade Kindle Cover/Case (Link Reference)

First of all: You should have a cover for your eReader whether it's a Kindle or other.

Why ..?

1- To stay it away from the dust.
2- For protecting it from dropping or accidental hits.
3- Keep it out of curious people eyes.

Here is some ideas for how to make a Kindle covers at home..

Why you pay about 40$ or 50$ for just a cover when you can get a better way made by your hands.

It would be a good idea to edit out the links that go to how to make a sleeve as a sleeve is a really bad idea.

Unless you'd like a sleeve, then it's a pretty good idea!

Thanks for the links. I might have to see if I'm feeling crafty enough to try something like this for my K3 or if I'll just take the lazy way out and buy one.
