who would have thought that this cover would have solved two of my most pressing issues with my Kindle-namely, forgetting to turn it off, and needing a well-fitting case? Well, friends, this case does it, and stylishly, I might add. no more forgetting to turn it off and flipping it open, only to have it show the empty battery symbol [wah wah wah waaah-meep-meep]. no more danger of nodding off and having it get scratched or damaged. one flip. period.
