Moko Cover Case for Kindle Paperwhite with Auto Sleep/Wake and a Lifetime Warranty
Had to post this one. These prices fluctuate quite a bit. But at this time, the price for this one is $5.99 and it's eligible for membership shipping which, if you are a member, means free delivery to arrive within 2 days in most places in the U.S. Canada has other rules for Prime shipping, and I'll go into that this week also.
This cover has 188 customer reviews with an average rating of 4.6.
The MoKo also comes with some kind of "Lifetime Warranty" although I haven't seen the fine print.
I've bought Moko products before and liked them. I already have the official Amazon Kindle Paperwhite case, which though I thought it expensive is beautiful and thin, the Kindle edges framed perfectly by the recessed case.
RooCASE Ultra Slim
However, I found that I prefer to read the Paperwhite without using a cover as it's really light that way and it's an ordeal to TRY to take it out of the Amazon case! So I wound up also getting an inexpensive one from which I can remove the Paperwhite easily.
In this case, so to speak, I bought a rooCASE Ultra Slim Vegan Leather Folio Case, which has AutoSleep. I do love the thinness and flexibility of the cover. This one looks a bit like a photo frame in that the Kindle screen is somewhat recessed in it. The front cover bends back easily. In a way, the Kindle is easier to hold in this in that you can slip a thumb or other finger behind the Kindle if you're holding it in your left hand, which makes it seem lighter to hold while reading.
However, this one, which I had considered inexpensive relative to the $50 Amazon regulars is $14.88 currently. It also is a product, with the 2 days free shipping in the U.S.
With all of these faux leather cases, there is initially an odor out of the box, and I put any of these by a window for 2 days and the problem goes away. This one has 132 customer reviews and an average 4.5 stars. It has no pocket on the left the way the Moko does. Otherwise it looks exactly the same, up to the opening for the power cord connector and power-on button plus look of the faux leather.
Kindle Fire Hd 7 and 8.9 Inch Standby case w/ autosleep/wake feature
The CaseCrown Ridge Standby Case for the 7" and 8.9" Kindle Fire HD models is currently $20.21 for the 7" (with ) and $15.23 for the 8.9" today (again, these prices fluctuate), BUT there is a shipping cost of $5 on the larger one for the Kindle Fire HD 8.9". That's right, the price is essentially the same for the cover for the considerably larger 8.9" model as for the one for the 7" model.
Though there was no Prime shipping eligibility for the larger model, that case came just as quickly, but the $5 shipping was added of course.
This one uses velcro to hold the screen in place, in either horizontal or vertical mode. It works reliably for me so far. It's NOT an ultra-slim case though, but this particular case, unlike another CaseCrown cover, has three solid placement indents so that you can change the angle of the display More important for me is that it stands up on its own and has flexible angle viewing.
The Amazon cases are more elegant and thinner, but these are more affordable alternatives for those wanting that.

The C Card and Me - How I beat stage IV cancer (to a pulp)
2nd Edition, by Ali Gilmore, illustrated by Bradley Keen.
$0.00 through Sunday Jan 20, 2013. Described as a very short, conversational and "irreverent" guide to getting through treatment for Stage 4 colon cancer, at first written for another person she heard was having to start the process. A guide "designed to be read in a day."
Text changes from the 1st edition were "made to Chapter 3 and to the Epilogue."
"About the book" page
I saw the PR release and have not read the guide, but it's free, is on a topic that'll be of interest to some facing a tough time, and it's a no-risk 'buy' -- the sample will give an idea though.
