This case turned out even better than I expected. When I open the case it automatically turns on the Kindle and when I close the case it turns the Kindle off. i didn't realize it was supposed to turn it on when I opened the case so for the first few days I was like a kid trying to see if the light goes off in the refrigerator when the door is closed. I kept wanting to make sure it would stay off when the cover was closed so I would pull back one corner to check. And it stayed off until I opened the case all the way. So once I was confident that it turned off and stayed off when i closed the case, I was very happy with this little feature. The Kindle fits in snugly and it is protected from accidental drops and scratches. It can't be beat, especially for the price.

I was going to buy the $40 Kindle case from Amazon but I decided to buy the *** one from Overstock and I can't be more than happy. It is a great fit and the Kindle doesn't jiggle around. Also the texture of the c ase makes the kindle easier to hold since the bare Kindle is so slippery. With the cover folded back, I tuck my fingers between the cover and the back of the kindle for more grip.
Also, I love the magnetic feature which turns the Kindle on and off automatically by magnets. I went with the black so the cover is not obtrusive when I'm reading, however I can see that having a bright cover might be a fun option. I might buy another color or two at this price. And there is no plastic smell whatsoever.

I didn't want a cover for my kindle paperwhite because I was concerned about adding weight and bulk but sure enough it got scratched from bouncing around in my purse. This cover is soft to the touch and the reading experience remains light in my hands. A worthwhile purchase for sure.

I was a little put off when I saw that purple was one of only a couple colors at the cheaper price but figured it was the least objectionable of the options unless I chose to pay more. I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived that it wasn't quite as bright looking as pictured. Works great, as described in the product info. My only problem with the entire purchase is the dismal tracking experience from the shipping company.
