The various bookbindery cases for the iPad are great and all, but I always found them to be a little impractical. They look lovely, they offer a ton of protection, but they do tend to get in the way. But the Kindle, made to be read like a book, seems tailor-made for a book-like cover. And here it is, the Hardcover for Kindle Touch from Dodo.
The case does away with the usual bamboo or wood frame and instead uses an adhesive sheet to stick the Kindle inside, saving weight and also making it lighter on the eyes. The case closes with an elastic strap, and the front cover can be wrapped around the back, allowing you to do something never allowed with a real book.
But maybe the best thing about adding this case is that it stops the pages from accidentally turning when you place the book face down. I sometimes use the touch-screen Kobo reader and it is forever registering bed covers and sofa cushions as fingers, and losing my place.
If I owned a Kindle Touch, I’d have ordered one of these Dodo cases already. They’re just $35. In fact, I’m getting pretty tempted to order the Kindle Touch just because this case exists…
