Keep your e-reader safe with a Book Buddle

There are always plenty of accessories and cases for Kindle e-readers. But for other brands, try a Buddle.

Libreture

Book Buddles are:

"Handmade book covers in linens & heavy cottons, padded with a foam stabiliser to keep your books looking beautiful!"

The brainchild of Jules Swain, Buddles are really nice cases to keep your books, e-readers and tablets safe and sound. Jules sells her handmade Buddles from her Etsy shop and takes custom orders, so that rare e-reader model you imported from France can get a cuddle too.

Bok Buddle Selection

For a bit more insight into Jules' work, here's a great article by Rambling Lisa: Meet Jules from Buddle.

Here are some photos of my own Buddle, that Jules custom-made to fit my (vintage?) Sony Reader.

Order your custom Buddle

There's already a great selection of Buddles to choose from, but Jules has confirmed that she is happy to make custom ones to suit your device perfectly. To help you order the correct size case for your e-reader, I've listed some common device sizes below.

I'll keep expanding the list when I spot new or missing models.
