Best Covers for Kindle Paperwhite

Hi. What are your favourite covers for the Paperwhite? I have a leather one on my device, which I love, and I've just bought my wife a new Paperwhite, and I haven't seen this same cover on the Amazon.es site. What do you suggest? I'd like something simple.

I just bought my husband a Moko cover for his new Paperwhite. A couple of years ago I got a case by Fintie for my daughter.

I go for the under $10 snap in type cases for my readers. I've not been as happy with Moko cover for my Oasis, the bottom right corner cracked, and they were no help since it had been a gift. It is now in a cheaper cover from IVSO. It's the first cover I bought, but the third I've used because of the cracks on that same corner on the other two. One was a Moko, one a no-name from eBay, but both had the exact same issue.

The only Amazon cover I've ever used is the one for the original Paperwhite. It's the Persimmon (Orange) color and is still in decent shape.

I’ve switched to the flexible TPU covers instead of the hard plastic ones. A bit heavier but so far so good.

I also often read without case (e.g. in bed) and I love how easy it is to remove the soft covers.

I'd love a fancy, leather cover someday but Im pretty cheap and also attracted to "cute pictures"

They are a dime a dozen and some of the quality differs clearly. A bad thing with the cheap covers is that the ones I was keeping in storage for Paperwhite 3 ended up getting an ashy type mildew on the inside, so I ended up tossing them. Me having this issue doesn't mean you will, though - I live in Florida with high humidity and have window air instead of central air so sometimes the humidity can cause issues

I have pics of most of my covers in my Mobileread albums here. I do want to get a slip cover for my new fire from october last year instead of a case for that one. I'm eyeing an Ipad type sleeve since it doesn't need to be a case that fully fits.

I think we all have different needs for cases. I like to fold mine completely around when reading one hand, so I need flexibility, and if it cracks over time (holds up pretty well), at least with the cheaper cases it's not a big loss.

I need a cover on my readers. I read in bed, laying on my side, glasses off and Kindle close. When on my right side, I can prop the Kindle on the bed because the cover makes a t-pee. If on my left side, I prop it on the pillow I'm using.

I've never liked a reader with no cover...too thin is hard to hold for me, the cover gives it something for me to hold.

The cracks in the lower right corner have been frustrating because they are right where the Oasis rests in the palm of my right hand when I read during the day. The 2017 Oasis has been frustrating for me on several levels. If I had it to do over again, I wouldn't buy it.

This looks good for the PW4. I love the pug cover.

I've given up on most third-party covers because they end up cracking or peeling. I picked up the official Amazon leather for my PW4 last fall when it was on sale, and I'm very happy with it. Not sure what's available for the OP in Spain, however.

No cover is best cover. YMMV.

I splurged and got Amazon's cork cover when I upgraded to the latest Paperwhite last year. Previously I was buying a new $10 cover about every year, because the edges fray and separate since my Kindle is used a lot and carried around in my purse. The cork cover is definitely wearing better than the cheap ones did, and I like the way it feels in my hand while reading.

I spend a lot of time reading and I find the Amazon cloth covers to be by far the most comfortable. They are, in my opinion, over-priced but like I said, I spend a lot of time with my Kindle. Avoid the yellow. Shows dirt like a son of a gun. The grey or blue is a better option.

Avoid the yellow because it shows dirt like a son of a gun. The blue or grey is, in my opinion, a better choice. I read while I eat and prop the Kindle against a beanbag and the slick plastic bottoms on the "pretty" cases are a pain.

That's my choice. It doesn't slide when I lean it against a beanbag to read while I eat, it's comfortable and secure to hold and I like it. Avoid the yellow, shows dirt. Blue and grey are a better choice.

And if you read the link, ignore the shipping cost. I live in Mexico.
