Attack of the Kindle Cases: Part Deux

So after using my orange Kindle case for a while, I happened to notice that M-Edge made Kindle cases printed with covers from The New Yorker. The New Yorker is, of course, my favorite magazine of all time (I practically have a lifetime subscription), and I love dogs, and (as the Necromancer astutely noted) orange is my favorite color. So this would be the perfect Kindle case for me, right?

It may not quite be apparent from this picture, but the rug that the little dog is sitting on is orange. Now if that dog were Dennis, he would have hold of that rug and be shaking it and shredding it — that’s his new thing, destroying area rugs; evidently he’s tired of destuffing pillows — but this dog is waiting patiently for his or her owner to come home. On the other hand, we can’t see what the rest of the apartment looks like … hmm …

Anyway, much as I like the appearance of this cover, there were a couple things about it that I found unsatisfying. The first is that, like the Amazon cover with the built-in light, it won’t stand up on its own; the other is that it doesn’t stay closed on its own. I knew both these things when I bought it, of course, but it was so cute I just had to have it anyway. I took care of the not staying closed issue with some strategically placed Velcro, but that had an unintended side effect: Whenever I would open it, a few stray threads of the fuzzy Velcro side would come off and land on the screen. That, of course, drove me completely mad, and eventually I returned to the original Kindle case. But then I found out that M-Edge was going to start selling covers with custom images on the front and back, which gave me an idea …

Oh, and, my current book? Still editing it. It will be done in a few months. No, really, I mean it this time!
