But it is easy to damage these devices, so I've made a cover using a DVD case and a knife.
This is my first Instructable, so please be gentle :-)
As you are using a knife, please concentrate on what you are doing. I will not be held responsible for any chopped off fingers.
Step 1: Prepare the Case
These will protude too much when the kindle is underneath, so approx 1 cm needs to be cut off the end of both clips
Step 2: Make a Slot for the USB and Power Button.
The photo doesn't make this too clear.
Step 3: Add an Outside Cover
The CD / DVD holder is still functionable, so you can store even more books if required.
Your kindle is now nice and safe.
