This year I bought Julie a cover for her Kindle Paperwhite (itâ€™s awesome as she can now use it in the dark) and I did a lot of research to find the perfect Kindle Paperwhite cover.
IÂ would always recommend going for a hard case as last year I learnt the hard way what sitting on your soft case protected Kindle can do.
1.Â Pad and Quill Kindle Cover
Back when I owned KindleCases.net, I received a sample Pad and Quill case through the post and it literally blew my mind. Itâ€™s hardback and looks like a normal book; it can handle all 12 stone of me sitting on it.
The fact that I still use mine to this day and having bought a Paperwhite version with $40 of shipping for Julie goes a long way to say how much I love this case.
If you like the look and you are in the United States then you should definitely get one of these. For those of you who are in the rest of the worldâ€¦the shipping costs can be high especially if you want it relatively quickly.
Cost: $54.99 on Amazon
2. Oberon Design â€“ Kindle Covers
If youâ€™re looking for something unique, then you should check out these awesome covers provided by Oberon Designs.
They have a massive choice of designs in many different colours.
For protection it uses pool table felt with a stiffener board that will protect against any major falls.

Cost: $74 on Amazon
3. Marware Covers â€“ EvoVue Paperwhite Cover
If you have budget concerns about the choices above and want something environmentally friendly then the EcoVue cover could be the one for you .
It comes in 3 colours and has an awesome internal strap so you can hold it easily with one hand as you read. At just under $35 itâ€™s a bargain.

4. DecalGirl â€“ Paperwhite Gel Skins
Skins are more for making your Kindle stand out from the crowd rather than major protection, but they do also protect against minor scratches.
DecalGirl has some of the best designs in the industry and itâ€™s a pleasure to scroll through the awesome range of designs.

Cost: $16.99 on Amazon
5. Neverending Story â€“ Handmade Paperwhite Cover
This awesome cover was found on the website Etsy.com and itâ€™s a leather case similar to the Oberon design.
With over 3,751 admirers, these covers are selling like hotcakes right now and I totally understand why. Each cover is custom made to fit your particular Kindle version which includes the Paperwhite.
The only downside is that it takes 10 days to ship the product due to the fact that each cover is custom made.
