Whilst the cover is good in that it 'wakes up' almost immediately the moment the cover is opened, and that it is good protection for the screen I find that it is hard to handle because there is little place to get a grip on the cover. Often in trying to turn the pages I drop the Kindle or turn on another feature from the bottom right hand corner. With arthritic fingers this is a painful problem .In my opinion it would be much more beneficial if there was some extra surround on the bottom of the cover so as to be able to actually hold the item. Overall though it is small and lightweight.
I have had 2 previous Kindles and leather covers. I think that my latest leather cover is disappointing. Not matching the quality of the previous ones. I was also disappointed that there was only black covers available when ordering.
