Getting the right case is the essential next step after buying a Kindle. The E-reader devices can be susceptible to bumps and scrapes, even more so for book worms who never leave the house without it.
As well as offering protection, Kindle cases can add a bit of personalised style to your reading. They can also help the Kindle feel more like a book, and opening and closing the case can automatically sleep or wake the device.
We've found our favourite Kindle covers in a range of styles and materials. Read on for our top picks.
