Moleskine fans, I've discovered, are generally 'booky' people. I've found most people who always have a book on hand, while waiting for a train or just because the TV is a bit inane, also have a notebook at equally easy disposal. The two go hand in hand.
Or is that hand in glove? Moleskine have released a new Kindle cover. For those not aware, the Kindle is Amazon's E-book reader. Rather than describe it myself, I'm going to (gulp) defer to the official Amazon summary, which is surprisingly good.
From Moleskine, the legendary manufacturer of books-yet-to-be written, comes the newest analog-digital hybrid tool: the Moleskine Kindle cover. The features and style of this cover are classic Moleskine: sleek rounded corners, strong elastic band, and the iconic smooth black cover. The cover protects and cushions the Kindle device, in a silhouette that's instantly classic and contemporary. It's a simple design beloved by writers, artists, and readers for over a century.
It looks great, is surely high quality but most importantly, it has great applications beyond the Kindle. The way i see it is as a great study (whether professional or dilettante) tool and allows for easy use of two notebooks without needing a desk. Love it.
As far as i can tell it's only available on Amazon at the moment, but fingers crossed your local Moleskine stockist will soon also be thus privileged!
