After using this cover for a day with my Fire I have decided to change my rating. The leather is too thin and already has unsightly creases in it. More problematic, the edges are sharp and cut into your hand when holding and the border around the screen prevents you from easily reaching the options menus on the Fire which are at the top and bottom.
