I recently acquired a Kindle and didn't feel like paying through the nose for a cool cover. So I made my own cover! I picked up an old library book at the Oxfam shop, and spent the weekend mutilating it  Cheesy Total cost about 6.

Inside with Kindle:


Without Kindle:


And the cover:

That's a great idea and much sturdier than Amazon's kindle covers.

Niiiice. Good idea. I don't think I could've mutilated that particular book -- it looks nifty. Wink

Thanks  Grin I did feel a pang when I started hacking away at the book, but there weren't many of the right size to choose from. The book wasn't as interesting inside as you'd guess from the cover.
