I just got my brand new Kindle 3 and I just love it. I sold my sisterís and my Kindle 2 and sleeve and I am using the picture of my K3 did not have when I am reading. I always read my Kindle 2, so I'm not really in desperate need of a case of Amazon. However, I'm within three days to make a holiday of five days and would like to run to the store and get a box or lid. I am very reluctant to buy a hinged however. Just my personal paranoia after reading about the Kindle cases cracked. Yes, I know that does not happen often, but still. I would prefer one without hinges.
