booksWould you like your Kindle case to look like a paper book? If so, Mashable has a slide show of ten different cases that imitate the appearance of paper books in one way or another. Some are commercially-manufactured, but there are also ones you can commission through crafts site Etsy if you’re not up to the task of crafting one yourself.

It’s interesting to see how many different ways there are to make a Kindle look, from the outside, like a paper book. Might these ease the pain for those people who prefer the look and feel of classic paper? Or perhaps make your Kindle less attractive to a thief if you leave it lying around closed? Or might they just be silly affectations? Whichever the case, there are certainly a lot of different ways to make your new e-reader look like old dead-tree-and-cow tech.
