Stylish Covers to Protect Your E-Book

Go ahead and judge — these protectors will keep your e-book looking stylish.

Call it the battle of the e-Books: The war for eyeballs among Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Apple continues — and it's creating opportunities for some enterprising accessory makers. The challenge in crafting protective covers for the Kindle, Nook, and iPad is in making sure that they don't make the owners look like dorks. Here are three top picks.

MOLESKINE

This Kindle cover looks just like a classic Moleskine notebook, complete with trademark elastic strap. Inside, a pad provides space for scribbling ideas or quotes from War and Peace. $40, amazon.com

JACK SPADE

To beef up the bottom of its cotton canvas Nook sleeve, Jack Spade dipped its cover in bright blue latex. A brass snap closure guards the top. $65, bn.com

BOOK

No one needs to know you're not packing paper: The Book disguises your iPad as an old-fashioned hardcover tome. Optional custom text allows you to invent a title. $89, longlivebooks.com

    I can not find this Moleskine type cover for the Kindle either. The only thing I've found are DIY directions on making your own from a Moleskine notebook. Can the author of this piece please be more detailed on where this item can be purchased? As far as I can see, it does not exist.

    I was just wondering if anyone was able to find the Moleskine Kindle cover anywhere. I certainly can't.
