Kindle Cover woes.

I recently OK, well not recently, actually a few months ago but I am so slack about blogging regularly that it will seem like recently. aquired a Kindle.
Loving it.
I'm not making excuses but it is probably the reason why I have been scarce on the blogging side of things of late. I spend all my free time reading on it rather than blogging. Not altogether a bad thing.
Anyway, back to the point.

I bought a cover for my Kindle from since Amazon don't deliver things like covers to Sunny South Africa.

The cover I bought was, in a word, rubbish! It isn't real leather as it says it is, and I noticed last weekend it is starting to come apart.
Now I am looking for another cover.
I was keen on a Moleskin cover but interestingly although Moleskin make covers for iphones and ipads and Kindles, they don't make any for any current modles. You can only get a Moleskin Kindle cover for the 2nd generation Kindle, and the iPhone 3, although they do have an iPhone App which I just recently started using and am hoping will help me to keep ideas together for future blog posts.

Anyway, back to the point....
The Splash Signature leather Kindle cover.
Shocking quality, blatant lies on the product description in both the online stores and packaging, and not really worth the money.

Here are some pictures of the beginnings of the breakage. I have emailed them about it. Will post if I ever get any reply.
Needless to say I'm not holding my breath.
