Giveaway! Win a Unique Book-Themed Kindle Cover

Giveaway! Win a Unique Book-Themed Kindle Cover

More prizes! Woohoo! Ready for Round #3 in our month-long series of giveaways leading up to the BIG prize on December 4th, to celebrate the release of my dieselpunk/historical novel Storming? But of course you are. 🙂

Storming K.M. WeilandToday, I’m excited to share a little bit of old-school-meets-technology coolness. If you’re like me, you’ve kinda turned traitor on old-fashioned paper books, just because you love the convenience, comfiness, and cheap on-demand literature of the e-reader. But you still love the way books look … and feel … and smell.

Why we shouldn’t get to have the best of both worlds? This week, thanks to the awesome people at the KleverCase, one of you will get to do just that! KleverCase creates brilliant and beautifully traditionally bound hard-cover book cases… for your e-reader!

The Prize

One lucky winner will receive a beautiful vintage book hardback e-reader cover handmade in England, using forty years of bookbinding experience.

The perfect coming together of old books and new technology makes this the ideal for e-reader owners who miss the feel of a book in their hands.

Made using locally sourced materials by highly skilled craftsmen and -women in England, their cases are of the highest quality and have a lovely backstory that makes them the ideal present and conversation piece.

If you win, you will be able to choose from four different book designs, customized with the your own book title and author name. You can also add a personal message inside.

  1. Hi,

    it differs, but by now it’s fifty-fifty.
    It took a while, but I came to like my kindle.

    Regards Siegmar

  2. Michael Ryan says:

    90% real books. 10% e books

  3. Probably about 10-1. I use my Kindle a lot more than I read paperbacks. I like the look of paperbacks, but the e-reader is so much more convenient.

  4. Emma Grabin says:

    I rarely, if ever, read books on an e-reader. I just like the feel and smell of actual books as well as the physical act of turning pages too much to switch to an e-reader!

  5. 90% eBooks. 10% Books.

  6. imdavidabrams says:

    Probably about 55 percent e-books and 45 percent “dead-tree” books.

  7. 95 percent “dead tree” books (Love that description btw) and 5 percent “No trees were harmed” ebooks. 😉

  8. 99% on Kindle, 1% books made by paper.

  9. Almost all real books. But stuff is generally cheaper as ebooks. 😛

  10. Question: My wife bought me something similar a few years ago, only to find out that it was designed for a later model of the kindle and didn’t fit my First-Gen so it has been sitting unused on my desk ever since. I would assume that the cover they make would be sized for whatever model of Kindle the winner has, correct?

  11. I tend to buy ‘special’ books I want to keep forever in real book form and quick new reads on Kindle, which may then become ‘special real’ books!! Probable about 70-30 kindle-book.

  12. About 10% “real” and 90% Kindle. Kindle books are just so much more convenient.

  13. I barely read real books anymore. So I would say about 90% are digital.

  14. Gosh, probably 9:1 Kindle to paper. I love peper books, but the instant access to new books, the portability, and the ability to read without turning on the light and disturbing my husband’s sleep are huge factors for me in more often choosing the Kindle over paper.

  15. 60 (e-book)/40 (paper books). And I just started doing e-books this year. Bought my first Kindle, not sure if it was just something “cool” I wanted, or something I’d use. I’ve found I use it WAY more than I thought I would 🙂

  16. Such a cool idea! Love it!

  17. These days, I read roughly 75% ebooks, not only because of less expense but also because of how little space I currently have to actually collect paper copies. The paper books I buy are mostly hardcover editions and trade paperbacks.

  18. Nearly one hundred percent ebooks.

  19. I’m an expat, so I’m 100% e-reader.

  20. 10 ebooks for every 1 physical book currently because of convenience but love the feel smell of (especially ) new books.

  21. I would say about 80% this past year, but I haven’t made the annual pilgrimage to my favorite used book store yet!
