This MAY be lengthy, considering I never write reviews. =) I got my Kindle on Christmas, and had not used it at all.. 3 months later- last week, I started using it, and I fell in love with it... so over the weekend I browsed online for the PERFECT case for me. I wanted something awesome, but I didn't know exactly what the awesomeness was. I googled cases and found many websites for cases for my Kindle Touch, but honestly, most of the ones I liked were somewhat pricey. I saw different styles, and it was between this one and this other one on Ebay which was plaid (I <3 plaid), gray and black, had a pocket for a credit card, had a pocket for paper, and came with a stylus pen, AND 2 protective film. The price $23.99. I was still undecided because I did not fall in love, so I literally said "I'm gonna sleep on it." Then on Sunday I woke up and continued my search (must be my OCD. ;D ) I went to Ebay again and was really considering different options, and then I had an epiphany, how about going to Amazon.com (DUH! It's a Kindle!) Soooo... I did. And to my surprise, found several ones well priced, but none made me fall in love until I saw this one!!!!! OMG!!! It was a match made in heaven! It was exactly what I never knew I always wanted!!!! Ok, so I'm not trying to make Amazon.com look good at all, but let's face it! They're the best. On Ebay I saw pretty good ones, but when I clicked on the well-priced ones they were all shipped from "Hong Kong"-- Ummm, let's just say I had a traumatic experience with Ebay when I tried to purchase a Wii (in their defense, I know MANY people, including family members who LOVE Ebay... me... definitely not.)
Anyway, so I loved this one, but I didn't see a REVIEW SO IT WORRIED ME. After all, you can't really feel the texture of this through the computer. I was scared it was cheaply made, or something to that effect. Come on, it was only $6 +$4.99 shipping. But I fell in LOVE with how chic it looks, how simple yet sexy it looks. And I wanted something girly, womanly, simple, chic, small, inexpensive, but overall effective.
So... then I thought.. well, this one doesn't come with a pocket for my credit card, nor an extra pocket for paper, nor a stylus pen.... and THEN I had another epiphany! Why the heck would I want a pocket for my credit card, I have a wallet!... why the heck do I need a pocket for paper. This isn't a notebook! Will I honestly use that annoying stylus pen? I have a Kindle touch for a reason! I want to TOUCH the screen... and protective film.. I'm buying a case to protect it to begin with ! (and if for some reason I want one in the future, I can purchase those individually as well.) I said "what the heck. It's only $6, if I don't like it, then I learn from my mistakes." So... I ordered it on SUNDAY evening (yes, I had a long weekend searching for the PERFECT one!).
...... I was anxiously awaiting for it... thinking I'd get it in a couple of weeks... after all, it was being shipped from California.. and I live in Florida. To my surprise I got it today!!!! Friday!!! I was sooo excited that I just need to share my review! Since I got it I told myself, I will write a review when I get it! Between you and I, I was ready to tell the world not to waste their money.. lol.. I am a pessimistic skeptic. I opened the package (UPS delivered it via USPS) And then I saw the brand new beauty!! I unwrapped it from the simple little sealed bag it came in, and I was amazed by how chic yet simple it looks. It's not bulgy, the material definitely doesn't look nor feel cheap, and when I removed it from the sealed bag it actually came with some foam inside to protect its natural shape along with that weird salt looking stuff to keep the fresh scent. OMG! I loved it! I quickly got my Kindle Touch and placed it inside... It fits nicely. =) The picture did not lie nor mislead at all. It looks slick and pretty simple, and that's what I LOVE about it! It's not all over the place, it doesn't have unnecessary devices, it doesn't come with stickers, no useless pockets, and not over priced. It's a case for your Kindle Touch and it protects your kindle touch when not in use. I love it! I love how it feels and how it looks, and how secure I feel that I made an EXCELLENT DECISION! I especially love the magnetic strips that simply close the Kindle (instead of the annoying buttons that I've seen on some of the other designs. I love how sophisticated yet girly it looks (pretty plain, what you see in the picture is exactly what it looks like, but for me, it was exactly what I was looking for.. I didn't want a plain color, but I didn't want a busy design either)
Anyway, if you read this far, wow, then you MUST purchase one. =) I don't think anyone could be disappointed with the purchase, and if you are, then oh well... you shouldn't have listened to me. lol. =)
