I chose the playful red library book case it does the job! reading the kindle with the case on, is not so nice as the front case does not fold back against the back case .This would be nice. the case fits very tightly to the new kindle and leave easy access to the plug charge socket and on off switch neither does the case function as any kind of a stand, so if its a quick read and it may be possible to drop then I leave the case on and always for travel. then when i settle for a decent read i like to remove the kindle device and to enjoy its tactile rubbery feel and lightness. Nice and easy to remove with pressure from the middle of the backcase, then the kindle pops out.
