Sci-fi chic hits the Kindle with “War of the Worlds” cover

Amazon’s Kindle eReader; a great device but, when compared to the luscious artwork that goes into the front cover of ye olde paperback tome, it’s a bit fugly.

Enter Red5’s Run for Cover eReader case range. Seriously stylish re-imaginings of classic novel covers, you can wrap your Kindle up in a protective folio for keyboard-packing Amazon devices.

There are six different designs to chose from, including Frankenstein, Alice in Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz, Dracula and Wuthering Heights. But our favourite has to be the sleeve based on H. G. Wells’ War of the Worlds. Tapping into the retro feel of Penguin’s classics collection, it’s a sweet mix of menace and sci-fi chic.

And, if you’re one of the gazillion people currently blushing their way through 50 Shades of Grey, you can hide your Kindle vices behind the covers of a classic. You’ll look like a literary whizz, when in reality you’re getting your wordy porn kicks.

They’re cheap as chips at £9.95, and if you’re rocking a Kobo Keyboard eReader, they’ll fit that too. Click here to grab one.
