Are Kindle Covers Weighing Them Down?

With the light and airy design of the new Kindle and other eReaders entering the market, there is no reason that an eReader should be weighing you down. But adding a case to your Kindle can change all of this.

Today in a Kindle forum on Amazon, one Kindle user expressed discontent with covers.  TravelCat posted: “I really love my new Kindle and have a envelope style case for it. Has anyone noticed how heavy the Kindle becomes with some of the lovely leather cases (with or without lights)? The Kindle’s weight is just about perfect. . . . don’t want to add 14 ounces to it when I’m reading. Has anyone seen a lightweight Kindle cover? I’m starting to think that it’s just too early after the release for most places to have the covers. Maybe I need to wait closer to Christmas?”

It’s true many of the covers listed on Amazon weigh in at almost a pound, adding extra weight to the device. Have you found a light-weight cover that protects your eReader well?
