I saw both pro and con reviews for this cover, but decided to take a chance. It's actually holding up quite well, and I'm reading it pretty much every day. I keep it in an outside pocket of my purse, and I"m not exactly "gentle" with my purse. I tend to fling it into the passenger seat when I get in the car. I had been worried about the corners breaking/chipping like some reviewers reported, but so far so good. I'm still trying to get used to the "plastic" feel as the cover for my original Kindle was leather, but this IS very slimline and it slips into my purse much more easily and takes up less space.
