The Amazon Kindle is green: According to a study published in the journal of Environmental Science and Technology, you can save approximately one tree per year if you replace your daily newspaper with the Kindle. On top of that, you are saving one to two pounds of paper for each e-book you buy. Also, you should consider the chemicals and fuels you saved from the manufacturing, production, transportation, and paper-printing processes. By purchasing a Kindle, you show that you care about the Earth and you should reward your Kindles by protecting them with stylish Kindle covers and cases.

Here comes the million dollar question: Which Kindle Cover is right for you?

In terms of fit, durability, or just overall style, four of the best Kindle covers on the market are (in no particular order):

1. Kindle Leather Cover



Original price:

  • $29.99 – You save: $5.00 (14%)

Pros:

  • The cover is light yet offers solid protection. The ingenious design of the hinges allows easy attachment and removal from the Kindle. The elastic strap further secures the Kindle and enables the cover to open and close like a real book. The material smells like leather and the overall look of the cover is very stylish.

Cons:

  • This cover does not offer a built-in light.

2. Black Lighted Kindle Leather Cover



Original price:

  • $49.99 – You save: $10.00 (17%)

Pros:

  • Since this Kindle cover with light is essentially an upgrade over the first Kindle cover listed, this cover carries all the advantages from the first Kindle cover with addition of a built-in light. The light will illuminate the entire screen and makes reading in the dark a pleasant experience.

Cons:

  • This cover does not fit the 1st or 2nd generation Kindles.  It is a Kindle 3 or Kindle Fire Cover.

3. Kindle Lighted Leather Cover



Original price:

  • $59.99

Pros:

  • Due to the change of design and material, this Kindle case with light is lighter than the previous models. The attachment and removal of the Kindle remains easy and the case is form-fitted. The sturdy light stick is at a better position and it provides adequate lighting across the entire screen.

Cons:

  • The use of the light shortens the battery life.

  • $59.99

Pros:

Cons:

  • The cover has no strap to keep it shut.

I wish I knew that they sold a case WITH light before I bought mine – very informative – thanks
