"Nook E-Reader Cover" by Shirley Ratliff

My husband gave me a Nook e-reader for my birthday. I loved it, but wanted a cover to protect it. Those from Barnes & Noble were expensive and not very pretty. So I made my own!

Great idea, Shirley - it's really pretty and practical.  Did you follow a pattern or make up your own?

I like it Shirley. Nice label.

I have  nook and I was thinking the same thing about the pricey covers. I made my own laptop bag and will make something for my nook.

Love the cover.  A Nook is on my Christmas wish list.  I noticed that there are a couple of varieties, is one better than the other?

Shirley, your e-book cover is really top notch.  It looks better than a lot of them I've seen in the stores.  Congratulations. I have a Nook and love it.  It's from Barnes & Noble.  It's easy to upload from your computer. They offer some free books every week.  They also have several classics.

Nice cover! I just got the new Kindle 3 and really love it even more than I thought I would. It was a difficult decision wether to get a Nook or Kindle, but the new Kindle is lighter and I had a $50 Amazon.com gift card, so that was the deciding factor. I'm looking into covers and will probably eventually make one for my Kindle too.

Very clever and practical.  I'm saving for an iPad;  I'll e incorporating your ideas into a cover when I get it.
