Best reviewed Kindle Paperwhite covers
One of the nice things about the three generations of the
is that the dimensions have been the same…so any Kindle Paperwhite cover fits any Paperwhite.
Personally, we like and use a relatively inexpensive brand:
The covers are reasonably sturdy, and they have a nice variety of patterns and colors. For us, it’s also important that they aren’t animal leather…not everybody cares about that, of course, but that’s a choice we make.
The Fintie coves certainly aren’t poorly reviewed, but I wanted to look at the best reviewed Paperwhite covers on Amazon.
On Prime Day
my guess is that there will be a sale (although it may be short lived) on Paperwhites…probably the Paperwhite 2, the model I use every day, but we’ll see.
Might be nice to have an idea what cover you want before then. 🙂
Amazon may show you several variations of the same thing as separate clickables on that page, but if multiple items have the exact same (substantial) number of customer reviews, I’m going to count them as one item:
- Amazon’s own cover | 4.7 stars out of 5 | 13,700 customer reviews | $39.99
- Verso Prologue cover | 4.6 stars | 1,623 reviews | $34.99
- Leslie Hsu PUNCHCASE | 4.6 stars | 94 reviews | $37.99
- Jonathan Adler | 4.4 stars | 316 reviews | $29.99
- Hello Kitty | 4.6 stars | 63 reviews| $34.99
- Caseable Paris cover | 4.7 stars | 20 reviews | currently unavailable
- Built NY | 4.7 stars | 15 reviews | currently unavailable
- Marblue Vassen | 4.5 stars | 160 reviews | only available used
- Caseable It’s in the Water | 4.9 stars | 11 reviews | $24.99
- Otterbox Defender | 4.2 stars | 246 reviews | $69.95
Well, it appears that being well reviewed doesn’t mean you can stay in business. 🙂 That’s not necessarily what not being currently available means, but that part is intriguing.
I didn’t really know Jonathan Adler or Leslie Hsu, but I do like the look of both of them.
One thing I do prefer in covers for my Kindles: “auto-wake”. That means that when you open the cover (usually like a book), the Kindle wakes up…close it, and it goes back to sleep. I just find that both convenient and reminiscent of a p-book (paperbook). I didn’t need to use a power switch on a p-book either. 😉

The one thing for you that is different is that you pick a non-profit the first time you go (which you can change whenever you want)…and the good feeling you’ll get. Shop ’til you help!
