Oh dear!

The person who recommended it is part of a reading club and has in the past given me fantastic books as gifts.

I didn't buy it at 8€ as I've got thousands of books already on my kindle to read.

I'm not blaming you Scooby. :-j It's probably just "not me". Currently, it's no:2 on the Amazon top 100.

I have had a Kindle for quite a while now and one of the things that I have wanted is a support for it. I haven't seen one for sale that I had any interest in so I got my brain cell in gear and came up with a couple of small bits of ply

Image

Cut them to size on my bandsaw, cut a couple of slots in them so they can stand up

Image

and hey presto, I now have a stand that breaks down to less than the size of my Kindle and holds it nice and securely for me to read lots without having to even hold it. all I have to do now is work out how to use my incredibly powerful brain cell to turn the pages telepathically ??? and I've cracked all the energy sapping properties of this reading lark 8) 8)

Very good but my Kindle cover doubles as a stand too. It slots into itself at the back :)

I looked at various covers, both for my Kindle and MotoG phone, but in the end they didn't fit well in my pocket.

This is just used at home, otherwise the docs/dentists waiting room it just slips out of my bum bag/pocket with no added furniture..

The cover I got for my phone has been used once and sits in a draw somewhere. I want small..

If 'yes' I'll be in touch as it looks like an ideal pressie for someone

Gorilla Glass on the front and a thin soft silicone cover on the back have kept my Moto G fully protected and almost as new.

iPad Mini2 13.5 x 0.8 x 20 cm, yes it can be made to fit that me-thinks..

Don't forget that it's only imitation plastic though, not real plastic :-? :-?

I have a Zagg cover on the screen of my G and came to the conclusion that new backs for
it are so cheap it isn't worth worrying about it.

Zagg give a replacement warranty too http://www.zagg.com/us/en_us/replacements

Not the cheapest, but can't be bad init 8-)
