And, it has to be said, the price is right. less than 12€ each delivered to my house is hard to beat!

Moleskine cover available

I went to an Indigo in Toronto, thinking I was getting the Moleskine for the Kobo Wifi, which would've been too big for the Kobo Touch. I thought I could cut the foam out to wedge the Touch into that, but as it turned out, there's a new Moleskine cover for the Touch! It's CAD 49.95, which is expensive, but it's a sweet cover and comes with the notepad, which I'm finding extremely useful while reading.

(It's not available from Indigo's online store yet. The model there is still for the Wifi only.)

Very nice. I really should post some pictures of my homemade moleskine case. It sure is a little pricey though.

Just wondering how you like your skindigital case? I just bought a Kobo Touch, and I am looking for a case. Thank you.

I bought the SkinDigital for my daughter a couple of weeks ago, it's essentially a clone of the CaseCrown which I have for my own KT, but in real leather and $10 cheaper! It's a *great* case (actually, both of them are), no regrets whatsoever. The fold-back feature is awesome, makes one-handed reading very simple as there are places to hook your fingers into to hold on, and also great for clipping a LED light to...

Cheers

New at Best Buy: Rocketfish case

Best Buy is carrying a $20 cover/case for the Kindle 4 and Kobo Touch from Rocketfish:
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Rocketfi...CZ5jAbhY772IPX

I picked one up, and posted about it on a different thread. I thought some here might also be interested in features not mentioned on the website, but I'm not quite sure how to link to that, so here's a summary:

* the cover folds all the way back and the elastic loop will hold it in place for one-handed reading.

* a slot in the inside "spine" allows you to stash a pen in the cover, and there is a pocket on the inside cover to hold paper, cards, etc.

* the little "flags" on the elastic band are removable (they've got velcro.) Apparently, the idea is that you can indicate your ereader with a particular color, and your significant other could use a different "flag" to indicate their possession.

* the inside is lined with a suede-like material that feels really nice in the hand. Really, really nice.

* the Kobo (or Kindle) is held in place by 4 elastic loops with a leather-like material reinforcement on the portions that actually touch the ereader.

* the outer cover is some sort of nylon that seems to resist coffee rings as well as dust.

Overall, it seems like a pretty nice cover to me. The pen-holding aspect was a pleasant surprise, and for some one who reads mainly library books, it's been nice to have a pen handy to make notes, as I wait for highlighting to come to sideloaded books.

Hi, I'm getting a Kobo Touch for my Christmas and was wondering where the best place to get covers for it would be in the UK? I've seen a couple in WH Smith and on Amazon, but I'm wondering if there's anywhere else. Looking for a bookstyle cover moreso than a case.

I purchased the Kobo Touch Canvas case yesterday. I am impressed with it. Very nice case. One thing though. It reeks of a strong pinesol-like odour! Has anyone experienced this with their case?
I just put it out in my sunroom, which is cool and airy. I hope that works!

My Touch now smells too because of the case. Ugh!

I just hold it out of the way with my fingers as I hold the cover.
