    Leather Kindle DX Cover by Amazon

    Kindle cover - We have to start with the most logical Kindle DX leather cover, the one made by the Kindle manufacturer, For $54.99 you can get the cover designed for the Kindle DX and its 9.7 inch screen in one of seven colors; black, orange, brown, pink, blue, green or red. The Amazon site states that it secures the Kindle in place with patent-pending cover hinge and strap has a sturdy and stylish genuine leather exterior with a soft charcoal grey suede interior that protects the screen from scratches. Weighing in at only 12.3 ounces, the minimal gain won’t cause any extra strain during long periods of reading.

    M-Edge Executive Leather Kindle DX Jacket

    M-Edge - The $39.99 M-Edge Executive Leather Kindle DX Jacket also comes in seven colors; red, blue, pink, brown, tan, pink and lilac.

    TrendyDigital Kindle DX Leather Cover

    trendydigital - TrendyDigital is one of the up-n-comers in the tech accessory world. They offer a quality product at a reasonable price and their Kindle DX leather Cover in no exception. The $39.99 cover is the slimmest possible cover for the DX while offering the same feel (interior and exterior) as the Amazon offering. It comes with a magnetic closure that is strong enough to keep the cover closed during transit yet still easily opens with one hand. A great little travel case for a user that needs to conserve as much space as possible.
