It is hard to remember a time when we managed without a touchscreen mobile phone. For some the thought of a phone the size of a brick with only numbers to use for both calling and texting is difficult to imagine. Predictive text was more trouble than it was worth and so you would find yourself tapping four times on the number 7 just to get the letter S, 10 minutes later and a text message is ready to send.
Ah those were the days…yes it was quicker and easier to just call the person but it was the novelty of it. Ping and you get a text message, a private little note just for you. And what do you do whilst you are waiting for your lovely little messages? Play snake of course.
I blame my mobile phone for failing a basic English exam. I seemed to develop a whole new language and replace the word you for U and to for 2. Great would change to gr8 and so on…texting was such a big part of my everyday life that I seemed to 4get how 2 write properly.
Ahhhhh, there is no doubt about it, our fond phone memories are a thing of distant past. With the fast paced developments in technology it is truly difficult to keep up. And for those who don’t want to keep up it is impossible to avoid. In a world where there is now such a thing as “data” and “apps” it feels there is little point in having a mobile unless you can have access to these. My mum clinged onto her ever faithful blackberry (perhaps the last non-touch screen modern phone left) until she could avoid it no more. It was time to renew her contract and what was the best deal? – an iPhone 6s.
Once you go iPhone is is hard to go back. The whole world is at your finger tips – Facebook, Twitter, games, internet, maps, music, the weather…the list is endless. I’m not going to lie, as much as I loved my ever so faithful pretty Nokia (yes it was pretty as you could change the front covers to match you mood), there is no way I would go back.
But then one day tragedy struck. My iPhone (my world), a phone which had surprisingly withstood being dropped in soup, getting caught in horrific rain and countless little mishaps here and there, got broken. A careless slip through the fingers and it smashed.
I’d heard of such horror stories but never thought it would happen to me. Could it happen? The amount of near misses my iPhone had had, I really thought mine must of been from a little miracle batch. But no like a cat, it lost its 9 lives, and didn’t just crack a little, it epically smashed to bits.
RIP my trusty little friend.

So after much pondering you have finally decided to take the plunge. It is time to ditch the beloved books and move to the modern world of E-readers. A bold move for most, there is nothing like the feeling of a new book in your mits, the sharp and crispy pages awaiting to be turned and folded. Or perhaps your an old book lover. That old musty smell, a book which has a story in its own right. The turn of a page only to discover a old stain, a little reminder that you aren’t the first reader. There is no doubt about it, whether new or old you just can’t replace the feeling of holding a good book.
But they take up too much room. Why take 3 books on holiday when you can squeeze in 3 extra pairs of shoes instead. Plus what if 3 books aren’t enough? Are there many English book shops in Spain? Book shops are becoming a rarity on the high street in England never mind overseas. At a touch, click and the use of a credit card, my new ereader gives me access the a world of books you can only dream of. But there are so many – which one do you need?
We entered the scary world of making Kindle covers just over a year ago and boy did we have a lot of catching up to do. Not only over the years have Kindle been tirelessly launching new models, but with each model comes many different generations. Not to mention the variety offered in different countries. Do a google search of all of the kindles available and the results are scary. We still discover new models all of the time. A customer with an ancient Kindle 2 is looking for a wallet. A New Kindle 10 gets launched with new specifications. Its a full time job with which we have now become somewhat of Kindle experts.
We know from our sales data that the most common model currently for the UK is the Kindle Paperwhite. It seems customers who are looking for a simple ereader without it being a laptop or tablet, something which you can just read a book on, the Paperwhite can not be beaten.
Our covers however are available for a variety of top selling Kindle models which include:
