Who got an E-Reader for Christmas? I did and I absolutely love it and am downloading tons of free books, including my favorite Sherlock Holmes adventures!
I like to take it along with me on appointments, trips, etc. but don't want it to get scratched up in my purse. The Solution? Whistlepig Creek Productions has just come out with a pattern for your E-Reader called the E-Reader Cubby. This pattern also has 4 different flap options to make this cover your own unique creation!

Tips on traveling with your E-Reader:

On doing a little research, I have found that it is best to carry your E-Reader in your take-on luggage(or purse) to help keep it safe. Suitcases can be thrown around and crushed, as well as getting lost!
In the USA, you usually do not have to lug your E-Reader out of your bag because the rules state that anything smaller than a 13" laptop doesn't have to be removed. In traveling out of the country, however, your device may have to be removed from your purse, carry-on, etc. to go through screening.
