But if you're going to take your books everywhere, you're going to need a case to prevent damage. So finding the right one is key. But which cases out there are the best?
There's no shortage of choice when it comes to finding cases for the Kindle Paperwhite. And plenty of those cases have gotten super-positive feedback from Amazon users.
After searching Amazon, these are some of the best cases available for anyone who has swapped traditional books for the Paperwhite. Find the one that fits your lifestyle and you'll be all set.
To keep it on-brand, it only makes sense that one of the first recommendations when it comes to the Kindle Paperwhite is the Amazon protective case. It delivers what would be expected out of a basic case, with the Kindle clipping in and the cover turning it on and off.
64% of users on Amazon vouch for the protective cover with five-star reviews, suggesting that it's a good addition to anyone's Kindle.
Let's be honest, we all get nervous at the sight of young kids with a tablet, because we never know if that tablet will still be in one piece when they're done. That's where the right case can really come into play, and Fintie has one for the Paperwhite.
The Fintie Silicon Case is the type of case to look at if durability is crucial to you. The case claims to protect the Paperwhite from potential drops, which is always a big risk with kids.
And 78% of users on Amazon have been happy with the Fintie case, giving it five stars. So you can feel free to encourage your kids to read digitally.
Fintie has its own stand case that has a little more of a traditional feel to it. The origami case looks like most traditional flip cases, with the book cover design. However, the front cover has bends that allow the Paperwhite to stand up for some hands-free reading. Simply fold up the back as needed to fit the angle you want.
Amazon reviewers seem to like the unusual design. 70% of users on Amazon have given the Fintie origami case five stars, which means the case delivers. And if you want to roll in style, there are plenty of colors and designs to choose from.
As convenient as e-readers and tablets are, sometimes you want that feel of a physical book. And there is something about a hardcover book that just feels good in your hands. If that's what you're looking for, then KleverCase has the cover for you.
The KleverCase book cover for the Paperwhite provides part of that book feel for the e-reader. The case looks like a hardcover while the Paperwhite is snapped in on the inside, giving it a more unique look.
And plenty of people have responded positively to this particular case. Currently, 76% of Amazon users have rated the KleverCase at five stars. You can choose between some of history's most famous books, like Pride & Prejudice and To Kill A Mockingbird. (Or, for real: The Bible.)
MoKo has another case available for the Paperwhite, the MoKo sleeve, which caters to travellers.
As the name implies, it's a sleeve case that's a little more geared for extensive travel. It sports a seal to keep the Paperwhite inside and is made out of nylon and flannel. The materials are a good choice for withstanding drops and preventing damage to the e-reader. And if you need an extra pocket for the charger or headphones, the case has one on the outside.
The Amazon rating backs up the quality of MoKo's case, with 88% of users on Amazon rating the case at five stars.
