Did anyone ever tell you not to judge a book by its cover? They were wrong. Would you rather find yourself engaged in conversation with someone sporting orange Crocs or someone wearing Jimmy Choos. Or, would you rather get intimate with a gold iPhone user or the owner of a mid-range Samsung? You get my point.
If you are an owner of a Kindle Fire and insist on wielding the wretched thing in public, you’re effectively labelling yourself as the type of person who settles for second best. Nothing says unsexy like bargain tech hardware.

Fortunately, salvation is at hand for the Kindle Fire owners of the world: Literary Kindle Fire covers. They swallow up your Kindle in imitation first edition covers for classic books such as A Clockwork Orange, Lolita, Moby Dick, and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. The Alice in Wonderland version I tested was beautifully made, just like a fine hardback. A class above the Chinese factory by way of eBay covers one suspects most Fire owners buy for their device.
If you own a Kindle Fire; bin it and save up for an iPad. If you insist on keeping Jeff Bezo’s ode to bland, buy one of these now and keep it under wraps.
