5.0 out of 5 stars Light for Kindle, 26 Jan. 2011
I have a Kindle 3 in a Tuff-Luv saddleback leather case (excellent!). Researching for a light, most were 3 AAA battery driven, giving variable light output. These seemed fine, although with bases a little on the large size. Then I read a review on this "travel-flex book light" that basically said, "why bother with adjustable light output, - one LED is sufficient". Very true - there is more than enough output to evenly light the whole Kindle, and the smaller size battery base and clamp attaches fine to the flip-over Tuff-Luv cover, with more than enough flex to adjust the light position. I did not want to rely on an attachment that clamps onto the Kindle itself. Seems well made. Can't fault it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good case , bad fastener, 29 Dec. 2010
Bought this case in September. It has had reasonable use - daily train commute. If it wasn't for the elastic fastener I'd rate it 5 star. Looks, attachment to the Kindle, use, feel - all very good. BUT the elastic has stetched and sags and is an irritant. If the elastic was now shortened by twice the width of the leather tab, it would seat in the retaining groove. So as a book cover, excellent. As a "case", could do better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterwork, 11 Nov. 2008
If the earlier 3 star review had predated my purchase of this work, I'd have possibly been swayed off. Thankfully it didn't. Put aside Train "sound-alike" observations, "no groove" and other negative views of that reviewer and form your own opinion by listening and re-listening to this classic Evans' work. Listen to it as a whole. If you find an extraordinary groove and a compelling and hypnotic richly structured soundscape, interjected with sympathetic structured solos fitting seamlessly in Evans' orchestral magic, then welcome! Maybe it will, in time, find its way into your Desert Island shortlist.
