I accidentally dropped my new kindle while using it, and the worst possible thing happened..... I scratched it. I started looking for a skin to cover it, as I already have a case, but i don't use the case when I'm reading on it, just to store it. I came across this, I was unsure to start with, i didn't really know how it would feel or look. But I am so impressed with it, I'm buying a few more. It's exceptional and I've had loads of compliments on it. Well, I do read it everywhere, so people do tend to see it. I absolutely love the design, its really funky. I wish I had a matching macbook skin in the same design. I was wary about the cost, but it is well worth the money. There are cheaper skins on the net, but they are not such good quality, and I would highly recommend it. Who wouldn't want to make they're kindle unique and more their own. This skin rules as far as kindle accessories go. It really is one of the best products I've bought off of Amazon lately.
