The Van Gogh Starry Night protective decal is just one of hundreds available at Amazon.com for $19.99. They are designed specifically for the Kindle DX 9.7 which makes them one of the best Kindle DX 9.7 accessories. They feature a non-permanent adhesive backing that allows them to be changed by simply peeling off the skins and replacing them with new ones. There is no sticky residue left behind. The scratch-resistant protective shield is made of high-quality vinyl that is thin enough to maintain compatibility with most accessories and cases yet tough enough to absorb the minor abuse that makes a device look dingy.
