Yep. I had another (one of the evil ones that were recalled), and then went with this one:

Marware Eco-Flip Kindle Flip Case (Fits 6" Display, Latest Generation Kindle), Black

I love this case. It's perfect for me, and very reasonable. It functions as a stand when I am doing something with my hands, and is otherwise lightweight while I'm reading.

Congratulations on your new Kindle. :-} They're addictive.

I love the Amazon one with the light built in. It works off the battery of the Kindle so you don't have to worry about separate charging for it. It is a little expensive, but it is very durable and easy to use.

I got it as a gift or I probably wouldn't have paid that much for it, but now that I have it I think it is probably worth it!!

My boyfriend and I got ours last Xmas and were debating on what covers to get. My mum had sent me a leather flip case with a band to keep it shut and it was awful! It made the kindle constantly reboot (I guess) and I'd lose my place over and over. For the kind of money they wanted, they could have it back. We settled on a Marware SportGrip Fitted Silicon case and we really like it. It doesn't cover the screen, but the silicon gives the kindle a little bounce if it falls, it's easy to hold on to, and it's fairly cheap. You could even buy one of those case decals if you wanted some design. Almost a year later, no rips or deep scratches anywhere on the case and my kindle still looks brand new, so it's definitely worth a try

If you don't require a lighted case then I would recommend saving yourself some money and just getting a cheap case off of ebay. I spent only about $15 on a Kindle case that does the job it's supposed to, which is carry and protect the Kindle.

M-Edge has a lot of different styles, and they're cheaper than the "official" leather cases. I have one with a clear plastic cover, good for using outdoors. There is some glare from the clear plastic, but I'd rather have water resistance and glare than Kindle destruction and no glare :) M-Edge cases also have a slot for their optional book lights, which I like - still on the fence as to whether I want a book light.

I like my Trendydigital cover - the front cover opens like a book and you fold it around back to read it. It closes with a magnet. It has lasted several years & it holds the Kindle securely. I bought it on ebay cheaper than listed on the company's website.

I don't really need a lighted case.

I still can't believe the price of some of these cases on Amazon. $60 for a case? I was expecting around $20 lol.

@hackman2007: You don't want a lighted case. They will kill your battery life. The one I'd pointed out was about $25 when I got it (although it was actually a gift from Amazon for the troubles with the first case). It flips over and protects the screen when I'm not using it. Most of those $60 cases are meant for people who have too much money and too little brains, far as I can tell. Oops. Need coffee.

[Edit] @fyrnnagra had the same case (the rebooting kind) that I did, originally. Hopefully those are no longer offered. They have little hooks on the side, just like the one that lights up, and the plastic coating wears off the hooks. It's more complicated than that, but three weeks of an electrical engineering class will point out as to why that's a bad idea. Be careful of eBay; I'm sure there are plenty of those defective cases still around, not to mention the knock-offs.
