Editor's Notes

July 16, 2019:

For some people, the only thing better than having a lot of books at home is having a lot of books in their hand wherever they go. It's hard to believe that the Kindle is 12 years old this year. The first ones appeared for sale in 2007 and sold out in just over five hours. Many generations later, today's Kindles, including the Paperwhite, remain hot items.

They're not exactly cheap and it makes sense to protect them, especially if you use yours away from home. It can be damaged when you throw it in a bag or if you drop it, and you can protect your investment with one of these covers relatively inexpensively. A cover might also help conserve battery power because most of them put your device to sleep when you close the cover. You'll want to make sure the cover you choose fits your particular Kindle model.

In this update, we chose items based on quality, effectiveness, and value, favoring items that have an outstanding reputation among users. Added the All New Fabric Cover as an option for the latest (10th generation) Paperwhite. It has a water-repelling cover that should help protect your device against spills and splashes.
