Anyone I know who owns a Kindle just loves it and talks of it with missionary zeal. I'm no exception; I adore mine and use it all the time. I'm also no stranger to the stomach-clenching sound of a Kindle hitting the floor in a painful (for both of us) way.
I'm on my 5th model in 9 months (luckily the warranty is great). Bottom line, these things are more fragile than your average Penguin Classic, and we want to protect them from the elements, our toddlers, and ourselves. Enter the Entrelac Cozy Kindle Cover, with a double layer of wool for shock absorption and weather-proofing, it's not just a pretty face! It makes a great quick gift for every Kindle owner in your life!
