This is an evolution of rayeath's great e-reader case from a hardback book.

The finished product looks like a sketchbook, so I don't get nervous on the bus flashing my newfangled techy reading gadget around.

Modifications:
Used an old (full) Moleskine notebook in place of a hardback book. I cut out and saved the pages.

Added a layer of padding (soft fabric left over from backing a baby quilt) on the front panel for extra protection.

The Moleskine dimensions fit the nook surprisingly well, but with all the padding it was slightly too thin, so I widened the spine to accommodate the thickness of the nook, elastics, and both fabric panels. (See photo).

Hope you like it!




i would try this for my sometek e reader but it dosnt have e-ink so it would heat up quickly.shame, i luurrvvee this project
I hope you kept the ventilation holes open without padding on the bottom. <br>Electronics need to be kept cool otherwise you shorten the lifespan of your gadget. <br>On the other hand your case might enhance the ventilation compared to having your e-reader directly on some soft surface like a sofa so it may be OK. <br><br>
yes, the nook has a curved surface on the back which allows lots of airflow. and also, even when holding it in my hands the thing never really gets warm--i suspect e-paper doesn't require all the processing power something like an iPad or laptop would require.
