Marware also makes the book type covers. I'm with Blossom and like the flip style. I prefer mine to stand up without my holding it. Easier to read & eat when I go to lunch by myself. Too bad you can't turn pages by blinking, right for forward and left for back.
I paid full price for mine, but I needed protection in case I left it out with the screen up. I have 3 cats, 2 are males, and they will stand on, sit on or sleep on anything of mine. They also shove things off a table on to the floor. Yes, I have threattened to squeeze their little heads into mush, but they don't seem to listen.
The hand hold is pretty nice. I find myself using it more and more.
To make it stand with the cover spread way out, I rigged some Velcro to hold it from flattening out. It works, but I'm not completely satisfied and am working on it some more.
