[Updated 09.01.2013] Kindle Paperwhite is one of the most advanced e-readers in the world. On the other hand, many users want to have the feeling of holding a real print book. To meet that demand, in this post we present 10 most beautiful book-themed covers and cases for Amazon Kindle Paperwhite.
When it comes to dimensions, Paperwhite is between Touch (which is a bit larger), and basic Kindle (which is a bit smaller). All three models have similar proportions, that’s why many producers sell their covers as the ones that “fit Kindle, Kindle Paperwhite, and Kindle Touch.” Any cover or sleeve for Kindle Touch will fit Paperwhite – but not any cover designed specifically for Kindle 4.
If you’ll order the cover on Etsy, where you can find awesome handmade covers, make sure to type in the message to seller the exact dimensions of the Paperwhite, so that they could tailor the cover they’ll make to your specific model.
|Kindle Touch||H/W/D = 6.8 / 4.7 / 0.4″||H/W/D = 172 / 120 / 10.1 mm|
|Kindle Paperwhite||H/W/D = 6.8 / 4.6 / 0.36″||H/W/D = 169 / 117 / 9.1 mm|
|Kindle 4||H/W/D = 6.5 / 4.5 / 0.34″||H/W/D = 166 / 114 / 8.7 mm|
