Twelve South today introduces the BookBook for Kindle Paperwhite, a vintage-inspired one-of-a-kind case designed to protect Amazon’s latest e-reader. Enhancing the joy of reading, BookBook transforms the Kindle Paperwhite into what looks and feels like an elegant leather-bound hardcover book.

Made from hand-distressed, genuine leather which is different and unique on every BookBook, this case not only protects the Kindle Paperwhite, it disguises it, making it less tempting to thieves. The hardback cover, reinforced corners and rigid spine shields the Kindle Paperwhite from drops as well as dings and scratches caused by keys and other sharp objects in a purse or backpack. A soft interior lining keeps the Kindle Paperwhite free from marks with dual zippers ensuring the covers stay firmly closed while still allowing users to charge the device inside.

Making the BookBook case even more novel is the integrated folding kickstand that props up the Kindle Paperwhite for hands-free reading, perfect for those bookworms who want to finish a chapter over breakfast or lunch. The BookBook for Kindle Paperwhite also opens and closes just like a book to wake your Kindle or put it to sleep. Whether users are reading the latest news on their way to work or immersed in a best-selling thriller by the pool while on holiday, the BookBook for Kindle Paperwhite is a must-have for those who want to protect their personal library.

“Every Mac friend I know has a Kindle for ‘reading-only’ time. Me too!” said Andrew Green, Co-founder of Twelve South. “Our new BookBook for Kindle Paperwhite gives our customers a vintage case that adds tons of personality and protection. There are plenty of plain cases for Kindle – now customers can have a case for their Kindle as interesting as the stories inside.”

The Twelve South BookBook is compatible with the Kindle Paperwhite 10th generation. It is available now for £49.99 at and is part of the BookBook collection of cases which includes BookBook for iPhone, iPad and MacBook.
