I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend! Before I jump into the awesomeness that is Kindle and Kindle cases, I wanted to share some Easter updates.
This year the Bunny Cake was shelved in honor of this beauty: Easter Basket Cake.
So creative, right? And so delicious! It especially hit the spot after all us kids ran around finding Easter eggs. And by “kids” I mean the married couples in their mid- and late-20s. 😉
On to something else I love just as much as cake…
KINDLE! I really, really do love it, too. Here’s the short list why:
- You can download books in 60 seconds
- Discount book prices- $.01 to $9.99
- The Kindle can hold up to 3500 books
- I can download books anywhere
- It’s lightweightIt’s
- It’s shiny, very shiny
The funny thing is I was a hard-core Kindle-hater about a year ago. I didn’t think I’d EVER want to trade in my beautiful paperbacks for digital books. I couldn’t FEEL the weight of the words in my hands. eBooks just seemed so cold.
Then, my husband bought the Kindle for our honeymoon plane trip. I downloaded a book right before we took off and fell in love: I could download a sequel to a book at midnight and not have to wait till the morning to go to the bookstore; I could save money and still feed my fiction addiction.
Naturally, the next step in my obsession was to dress up Kindle (or Kendall as I sometimes call it. Yes, I am crazy).
I am an aesthetic person, and it’s important to me that the spaces I live and work in are pleasing to the eye. This apparently also applies to inanimate objects.
Meet the Kindle Case:
This gorgeous case was designed by ElizabethDavidDesigns on Etsy.com. If you’ve never been on Etsy before, it’s a dangerous and wondrous place.The site offeres a wide variety of handmade and vintage items like clothes, purses, jewelry and anything else you could possible think of.
Initially, I had a tough time finding something cute and fun in my Kindle case search. The cases on Amazon were brown leather or plain solid colors. Ugh! I crave patterns and color!
I finally searched on Etsy and found page after page of amazing cover choices. I loved almost all of the ElizabethDavidDesign covers, but this one really caught my eye. The case I bought has vibrant colors, cute flowers and is very well crafted. Plus, it’s perfect for traveling.

I love how the Kindle is safely secured in the case- it makes reading less cumbersome. There are some really great options at ElizabethDavidDesigns, and I hope you find an awesome case there too!
Although I am overly obsessed with Kend…I mean Kindle, I know it can be a strange transition for some readers. I fully support all of you who love reading paperback and hardback books- eReaders are not necessarily for everyone. My only suggestion is this: try one (or borrow a friend’s)and you just might be surprised!! 🙂
If you own an eReader, what accessories have you bought (book lights, cases)? If you don’t own an eReader, would you ever get one?
