New Moleskine Kindle Cover


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!

  2. There's only one problem: If you're right handed, and you're on, say, a bus, or a park bench, when that notepad is steadied on your right thigh so you can write, the Kindle is going to be hanging off the side. If they just switched the position of the notepad and Kindle, you could have the notebook steadied on your right thigh to write on and the Kindle resting on your left thigh to read from. I might be biased towards the notebook, but I foresee the writing requiring more coordination and more steadiness than turning the pages of the Kindle.

  3. Looks nice and I am a big fan of Moleskine products.You could flip the whole thing then without having to sew more reader loops.This would be a great cover if it could be reversed, the notebook on the right hand side.
