One of my main presents I got this Christmas was a Kindle Fire HDX. I've been umming and ahhing over whether to get a kindle for a couple of years now. As a child I loved to read, I would read every single night at bedtime and every spare second I got my nose was stuck in a book. I love the escapism that a good book gives you and the ability to immerse yourself into someone else's world. As I've got older though, particularly in the last few years, I've found myself reading less and less due to the lack of time and life just getting in the way. So I've decided I want to take some more me time and rediscover my love of books. When I decided this I still wasn't sure I wanted to rediscover this in the form of a Kindle, being such a book lover I like to have a hard copy that I can hold in my hand, turn the pages and add to my collection on my bookshelf. As much as I'd love to have a huge collection of books the Kindle just seems so much more practical, all my books can be stored on one device saving precious (and very limited) space in my room, it is much lighter to carry around with me than a big hardback and when I see a book I can download it instantly rather than having to wait for it to be delivered.
As one of the main reasons I decided to get a Kindle was that I'd be able to carry it around with me easily in my bag and take it on holidays with me, it'd need a little protection, especially with all the bits and bobs I accumulate in my bag that could scratch the screen. So after a little look online I came across KleverCases on Not On The High Street and fell in love with them instantly. I continued to look but nothing I found was a patch on them, so after a little elimination process to pick a favourite I made my order and it arrived this week.
As you can see this case is just beautiful and completely solves my problem of not feeling like I'm reading a book. The case is beautifully handmade and I love the little personal touch of a little thank you note and the name of the person who made your case. The case can also be personalised with a message inside for a small extra charge, which I think would make it a great gift for any book lover.
Now I have my Kindle I just need to fill it up with lots of great books, so if you have any recommendations please feel free to let me know below or leave a comment letting me know what your favourite book is.
