Small eBook Cover
No Way to Keep It Closed
This looked great in the store, but when I got it home and put my Nook Simple Touch in it, I couldn't figure out how to keep it closed. I took it back to the store, figuring I was doing something wrong, but they told me that the magnets that it has in the store to keep it closed are simply for display purposes. Once you take the filler and the band off, and put your E-Reader in it, there is no way to keep it closed. Needless to say, I returned the cover and bought the E-Reader sleeve, which my old, beat-up non-Vera cover fits in just perfectly. If they had some way to keep it closed - a strap from front to back, or elastic over the outer corners, I would give it another shot.

Very Cute & Fits My Kindle Touch
I got this small E-reader cover in Island Blooms for my Kindle Touch and I love it! It's so much more cheerful than the basic purple case I was using. While it does fit snugly, I had little to no trouble getting my Kindle in the case and the top cover lays pretty flat like a book.
Please note that there is no magnet in the case itself (I ran a bobby pin and fridge magnet over the whole thing just to be sure after reading the previous reviewer's post). There was only a magnet on the packaging sleeve that kept the cover closed for shipping/display purposes, so pull that off before putting your E-reader inside.
When reading, the front cover folds back nicely and feels comfortable in my hands. If it had an elastic strap on the outside to help keep it closed, I would have given it 5 stars. But overall, I'm really liking this cute case and would recommend it to fellow Kindle Touch owners looking for something more stylish and feminine than the basic cases found online. I'm glad I bought mine!

Great cover for my Kindle Touch
I was hesitant to buy this cover as a result of the other reviews. I had actually thought about bringing my kindle with me to the store and then forgot it on my way out of the house. So I gave it a whirl.
First, the reviewer who said there is no magnet is correct. This cover operates like any other book cover and like many of the covers already out there for the kindles. It does not have anything to keep it closed.
The kindle touch fits nice and snug inside the elastic straps. I wish I could post a picture here to show just how nicely it fits. I'm not sure why a previous reviewer said the cover doesn't sit flat on the top of the kindle touch. Mine sits just right!
This is a great cover. I bought mine in Island Blooms to match my collection and I love it!
