I've had two Kindles over time and both times bought the matching Amazon cover. And both times, I've been impressed. The new cover turns on the Kindle when you open the cover and that's cool. It fits the device snuggle and protects it completely. My wife has no cover on hers and...now she has a little scratch on the surface that leaks light (Paperwhite) rendering it almost unusable. So invest in a cover - and choose the one that was meant to go with the device you bought.
