Amazon's Leather Cover for Your Kindle Paperwhite
Our genuine leather cover was engineered to be the lightest and thinnest protective cover for your Kindle Paperwhite. A fusion of soft, premium textured leather and an innovative, custom-fitted interior secures Kindle Paperwhite without any hinges or straps.
Lose Yourself in Your Reading
Our top design objective is to make Kindle devices and accessories disappear - just like a physical book - so you can get lost in your reading.
On the Go
Thin, lightweight, and hard-wearing, this cover is perfect for taking Kindle Paperwhite wherever you go. When you have finished enjoying your content, simply close the cover to put your Kindle Paperwhite to sleep and you are good to go. The integrated magnetic closure will ensure your cover stays shut while in a backpack, handbag, or briefcase.

The leather is textured and has been applied as a surface covering to both the front section of the cover and the plastic tray at the rear. The leather doesn't have the lovely, soft tactile sensation that went with Amazon's Kindle Keyboard covers but doesn't seem to mark as easily as the Amazon leather covers for the baby Kindle/Kindle Touch models (a fingernail is enough to leave a permanent scrape on those). The purple colourway I ordered is disappointing - much darker than product photos suggest.
The cover bends back easily enough for one handed reading, but the 'spine' section on the latest version of the Amazon brand cover does seem to have been reinforced, so that it doesn't flop awkwardly backwards if you prefer to hold the cover two-handed. The microfibre lining of the interior is very shallow-piled and resembles black denim.
The biggest problem I had with the last generation of Amazon cases - the lack of closing mechanism - has been addressed here, courtesy of a lightweight magnet. This works simply, engaging when you shut the cover, and requires no extra fiddling.
The cover isn't cheap, but is comparable in price to cases currently offered by Verso and Marware.Read more ›

In previous covers this has been provided by the built-in lights in the cover, but this time, as the Paperwhite has its own light, the cover automatically sleeps and wakes the Kindle as you close and open the case. And I have to admit that, while it's not exactly difficult or time-consuming simply pressing the button on the Kindle, it's a little touch that adds just a little bit more joy to using the Kindle.
The cover itself is very slim, fits the Kindle perfectly and looks neat and smart sat on your desk or bedside table. The front is ever so slightly padded and the brushed metal accent of the magnetic clasp adds to the appeal and seems to keep the cover reasonably securely closed, as long as you don't wave your Kindle in the air. The texture of the leather reminds me somewhat of some old leathery library books that sat on the shelves at my school and evokes feelings of quality and learnedness.
At the end of the day it's a cover, so there's nothing to lose any sleep over, but what it does it does well and it's certainly a quality product.
Marked down by one star as it's probably a tenner too expensive.
