Is It Necessary to Get a Cover for Your Kindle?

So, you’ve just bought a brand-new Kindle, but you’re worried about it getting scratched up (or worse). You’re asking yourself if it’s worth it to buy a cover or if you should let your device fend for itself. Here is some expert advice on subject.

Kindles Don’t Need a Cover

Like most devices, your Kindle will come without a cover or case. However, you can easily buy one when you purchase it, either at the Kindle store or through another retailer. In most cases, Kindles don’t actually need covers. Many people use them before bed to read or otherwise in the comfort of their own homes. Because they provide limited functionality and are only used in certain circumstances, most individuals can make do without another line of protection.


If you are the kind of person who experiences a lot of accidents—from water glasses getting knocked off the bedside table to cars inadvertently running over cell phones—you may want to purchase a cover after all. Kindles are just like most other technological devices in that they are expensive and fragile, and if you think you’re likely to experience an accident, it’s a good idea to have a cover to protect your purchase.

Other people may want to buy a cover because of where they are planning on taking their Kindles. If you want to go to the beach and read there, it is strongly recommended that you buy a cover, as your device could get a bellyful of sand otherwise. Give some thought to what you plan on doing with your Kindle as well as what you think could potentially befall it.
