There isn’t much to say about the Kindle cover and screen protector. However, I would recommend buying both if you can afford it. Make sure you don’t leave air bubbles though, if you intend to put the screen protector yourself(It’s fairly easy). The Kindle Paperwhite isn’t waterproof, by the way. The cover gives your Kindle some protection as well and it also protects your screen somewhat. However, I am talking about the Kindle Paperwhite cover. Make sure you know which cover you’re getting. Check out the link below to select and buy your preferred cover. Remember to pick one that looks nice!(I am currently using a cover and screen protector made buy a third party, not Amazon).
