For my 26th birthday, my boyfriend bought me this Verso Prologue cover for my Kindle Touch, also compatible with Kindle and most other Nooks, Kobos, and Sony e-readers. It’s like a perfect marriage of my geeky side and my nerdy side. As soon as I opened it, it took my breath away by its classic design: a hand-distressed finish, gold foil stamping, and an embossed embellishment in the center. It looks like a beautiful antique book—I can read 50 Shades of Grey in public without anyone suspecting a thing!
The inside contains a nice surprise, a pocket that runs all the way to the end of the case. The straps are so tight that it was difficult getting my Kindle secured, but at least I know that that sucker won’t budge. The case does not block the charging port or the on/off button. It’s not too heavy either. If you’re looking for durability instead of elegance, you might want to try a sturdier case. After a week of use, the binding is started to flatten out from being smushed in my backpack too much, and there is no strap to keep the case from opening. And although it doesn’t smell like an old book (God, I love that smell), it fits right in with the other books on my bookshelf, and I look super-intellectual now when I read my chick lit in the hipster café down the street.
