I got a Kindle!

So I got a Kindle 2
for Christmas. This is a big yay as my bookshelves this year took a beating. Now I only need to buy comic books and art books with tons of pictures in hard copy. Of course I still have a stack of to read to catch up on to finish, but otherwise -- e-books for me. I knew I'd be getting it so the last book I bought at a store was a comic, which I'm reading now The Sandman Vol. 1: Preludes and Nocturnes. It appears I'm muti-tasking when it comes to reading as I also have another hard copy of a book I'd started before getting the Kindle and am continuing it (Moonshine (Cal Leandros, Book 2)). AND if that's not enough I started one on the Kindle, to start using it (Rapacia: The Second Circle of Heck (Circles of Heck)). I'm just switching, depending on my mood when I go to read.

Now my real dilemma. I don't travel, etc so I don't need a Kindle case designed for that. BUT, we do have cats. Cats who already did things like scratch my tablet, decide that my couch is better than their scratching post, and who think they're at war with a toy mouse so they tear through the house and over the couch in the middle of getting worked up over said war -- where I read most often (I have battle wounds to prove it). Sometimes I set my book down next to me, usually safe from the cats but it could end up caught in one of their odd kitty attacks anyway. So what I need is a cover that just acts as good screen / case protection. Easy to open and close. That sort of thing. The kind of thing where I won't have to take the Kindle in and out of all of the to read. Not a travel case, but an every day cover.

I think I've narrowed my search down to a few. Let me tell you -- there's some cheap ones that look good and some expensive one that look like crap.

I'm leaning towards these:

Holiday Sale! JAVOedge Cherry Blossom Book Style Case for Amazon Kindle 2 (Cocoa Brown)
JAVOedge Cherry Blossom Book Style Case

M-Edge Latitude Kindle Jacket (Fits 6" Display, Latest Generation Kindle), Orange w/ Grey
M-Edge Latitude Kindle Jacket, Orange w/ Grey

And this Oberon one.

Ahh, choices. I'll make up my mind... someday.
