Question Can anybody compare the K3 Light/No-Light covers?

I'm about to order a K3, but can't decide on which of the covers to get, the one with the light or the one without. Only because I might occasionally use the light. The only thing keeping me from choosing one is a good comparison. Has anybody compared the size/weight of both covers? I'd prefer the light one, only if it doesn't make the Kindle thicker or bulkier, I'm sure the weight increase would be negligible (probably still lighter than my K2 + cover). Any help? Thanks.

There's a thread here, more than one maybe, comparing the two. The cover does add some bulk and weight, obviously, but I don't think the light adds very much extra weight, and the lighted cover is no thicker or bulkier. Someone else can tell you for sure though.

I have both covers and the lighted one does not feel heaver or really much thicker, just the back feels stiffer on the lighted one. The standard cover is more flexible. I prefer the lighted one, feels more secure and rigid, plus the light is really great, much better than any pics can show. Both covers will add bulk and weight by their nature as the kindle is so light and slim.

Thanks for the responses, I guess lighted one it is!

I searched the forum for a thread about it, but didn't seem to find a comparison, too many variations on kindle 3 cover light I figure.
