20 book-style Kindle Paperwhite covers and cases
This is an update of our popular post putting together all the best Kindle Paperwhite covers that look like book.
One year since the launch of Amazon’s front-lit e-reader is more than enough to bring to life some gorgeous Kindle Paperwhite covers and cases, no matter how specific they are: vintage, book-themed, literary, or antique.
Kindle Paperwhite 2 has exactly the same dimensions, so the cases designed to fit first-generation will also fit the 2013 model.
If you want to feel like holding a real book, when reaching for your e-reader, check out Kindle Paperwhite covers listed below. Some of them, like Lightwedge Verso or Pad & Quill Mini Keeper are the kings of book-style design, but new models are also very interesting.
For more decent designs, you should take a closer look at the new Kindle Paperwhite covers from Tuff-Luv, Marware, Proporta, and August Lion. What’s worth highlighting, Tuff-Luv Embrace case, the one in Western brown leather, can be personalized. You can have your own name or initials on its back.
Want a more antique look? No problem, you can wrap Amazon’s most advanced technology in a cover that will bring you back to pre-Gutenberg times (see the end of the list).
Personalization is a growing trend and many users head to Etsy for accessories made to specific order. Etsy is a wonderful source of colorful, artistic covers, and some of the best examples are featured in the list below.
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.” It’s true when the cover holds the Kindle with corner straps, but be careful with other methods (especially a neoprene wrap).
Dimensions of Kindle e-readers ( height / width / depth )
Kindle – 166 / 114 / 8.7mm – 6.5 / 4.5 / 0.34″
Kindle Paperwhite – 169 / 117 / 9.1mm – 6.8 / 4.6 / 0.36″
Kindle Touch – 172 / 120 / 10.1mm – 6.8 / 4.7 / 0.4″
