Nook/ereader case £1.00 from poundland

37
Found 17th May 2013
So, I'm sure the majority of us have got a Nook now. mine is being delivered to Asda tomorrow, so thought I'd get a case for it. Checked online, and the wallet type cases are a few pounds upwards. Came across these in Poundland today. Not the same as the ones pictured though. Unfortunately, all the design were rather feminine. Would suit someone who was just going to be reading in the house though.

No, they are different from that. Similar in style, but the designs are totally different.

I was looking for the same thing, but unfortunately the Norwich store at St Stephens Street only had Kindle ones designed for the model with the keyboard when I went in yesterday.

These are **** in my opinion, and wouldn't fit the Nook Simple Touch anyways. They do sell some snazzy looking padded covers, with various designs and colours on them. These also have the corner holders, but also have a large pocket inside which you can fit just about any 6 or 7 inch tablet/reader in.

are they definitely for the Nook Simple Touch as the one pictured is for a kindle (which is a different size) and using their search for "nook" gave no results?

the nook one from currys has clips to hold it securely, far superior. I know more expensive, but i hate the elastic things x

Yeah, definitely for the Nook, and other e-readers. The missus got one, I'll take a pic and upload in a bit. They have the corner holders, plus the large pocket that rufus describes.

The pocket is on the left. She got an Audrey Hepburn in the city style.

I bought an elastic case for my daughters galaxy tab and it's dreadful, always taking the thing out of it for use. Would avoid these even at just £1 and buy a clip case or even a neoprene slip case

Cheers, could you perhaps post another photo with your Nook inside? Just to get an idea how it looks?

That's half the value of the device

mine was £9 in currys and its good quality will protect my huge investment

I bought a spare nook instead of a case, it was cheaper (_;)

For those wanting to spend on a nice case. This was posted a couple of days ago by Zardoz. Didn't attract much heat but it is the cheapest price currently for what I think for a very nice case.

Lautner Ink

Not sure I am getting the logic of spending £15-£25 on a case for a £30 product? Wouldn't it make holding the thing harder?

Surely a cheap neoprene case would suffice, then just slip it out when you need to read and pop it back when finished?

Personal choice I guess. I bought the Oliver case from Currys for £9.99 and the international charger kit for £7.99 from Argos. I thought, as it was a gift, the matching gear would look smart.

Agree that £15-£25 is too steep in relation to the nooks new cheap price but a decent case is worth a tenner. I repeat my recent post made in another nook thread. Not saying i'm right just offering another point of view.

"The screens on all e-ink ereaders are easily susceptible to pressure damage. The screen doesn't always break but the e-ink membrane starts leaking underneath. I strongly recommend buying a case and cover with a sturdy front lid, sufficient to provide some protection.

I've had my share of covers with loads of stitching (that unravels and scratches the ereader case) and elastic retaining bands that 'almost' fit. I realise that the official nook covers are more than you want to spend but believe me, they provide protection and enhance the usability of the nook simple touch. The nook covers are well designed, made from quality materials and the custom designed plastic retaining clips work wel. They are also designed to switch the nook off by pressing the back of the cover. The covers are not worth the £20 + RRP but last time i looked, currys had one on offer for a tenner. Well worth the investment IMO."

anyone know where I can still get a nook at a great price?

No idea if they have any available in your area but you could try Argos.

I got one, rooted it, have Android on it with the Kindle App. Wife prefers her Kindle Paperwhite but the Nook is a cheapish device to take to work etc.

none in the metro centre!

None in the Poole (Falkland Square) branch.

Edit: I put my nook in the kindle case i got from argos and fits fine

I emailed the Nook customer service department a few days ago, asking if they expected more stock etc. I got a response saying that they are hoping to get more stock in, and keep the price as a permanent price for it, so may be worthwhile checking every day or so.

Onto the case. The Nook is too small to be held by all 4 corner tabs, however, it holds the Nook rather well with just the 2 bottom tabs, unless you read upside down, then use the top 2.

It also has a pocket, which the Nook can be inserted in when travelling.

All in all, it's a fairly effective and decent case for £1, especially if you are just going to be reading in the house.

I had a very similar looking case for the Kindle and it left permanent stains on the back of the device.

i saw these today actually and picked one up for my Iconia B1 .. it fits perfectly - apart from the elastic strap in the top right corner covering the on/off switch, but I might look at getting something slightly more sturdy. It'll do for now though .. here you go ..

Thanks, I think I will maybe try to find something more fitting, but it is still a great option for someone not willing to pay too much for a Nook case.

The £3.99 Trendz cases from Sainsbury's fit much better if you can find 'em. Failing that, Currys/Dixons/PCW do neoprene zip-up pouches for £7.99 (but require you to remove the reader entirely to use).

Don't see the point of a case to use when reading, just makes it awkward, and the whole reason I got an ereader was something light and easy to hold, a case ruins that.



Think I just like the feeling of 'opening it up'...book like!

Blasphemous

If you check John Lewis is back in the stock I ordered my one just now:-))

A DVD case makes a great case for the Nook.
Just cut out the raised part ( that holds the DVD ) and the two clips that hold the booklet - easy if you have a dremel ( or a cheap copy like myself).
Glue a piece of paper on to cover the hole. Don't be tempted to use anything thicker ( such as cloth or that non-slip rubber matting - i tried this on my first attempt ) as it will stop the case from closing with the nook inside. The Nook fits nice and snug and does not slide about. This is great for people who like to use it out of a case ( and just use the case for protection when carrying it about ).
