I have a paperwhite; I love it

It means I can read more easily for longer (I get pain in my hands)

But I want a cover/stand thing so I can lie on my side and just turn the pages with it being supported

Preferably covered in nice cloth not leather (although suede would be OK)

So where should I look for it? Any ideas? I don't even know how to describe the shape I want.....& when I google I get little bags to put it in

I tried to make one & it was a disaster

Absolutely no idea sorry, but please show us a pic when you get one smile

Have a look here. Really lovely covers. The Kindle Fire cover converts into a stand but I've no idea about the paperwhite version.

I've got one of these and I absolutely love it. Doesn't look out of place anywhere (bed mostly) and holds the screen at just the right angle.

Link is for a US website, to show you the colours. Amazon sell them for less than £20. I bought a couple even cheaper from a small independent shop locally.

Highly recommended. smile

Now that does look good cake.

Yes I guess I want a Fire cover sized for a paperwhite; maybe I need to commission it

Cake, that looks great but I don't red at that angle

You should contact the company I linked. They are small and I'm sure would be interested in doing a cover you've described.

Good idea - I'll email & ask

When I bought my Kindle cover from Tesco recently they had quite a selection. Mine is purple, canvas type material but they also had a few which stood up.

I got a nice one from ebay. It's leather - I know you don't want that, but I seem to remember seeing suede ones, too. Might be worth a look. I got it last year for about £5, when all the amazon ones were over £40.

bisjo Thank you for your recommendation for the Lente covers. I ordered one after reading your post and it came yesterday and I love it and a real bargain at less than £20! smile
