Although we love tech and the convenience of having our entire library in one gadget, we do miss the feeling of a real book in hand. To celebrate, we found seven book-inspired cases that combine the best of both worlds. Before you use today as the perfect excuse to curl up and finish up your spicy Summer novel, make sure your ereader is protected in proper bookworm spirit. . . then lose yourself in the pages — er, screen.
We got an early look at M-Edge's new and stylish case lineup last night at the Pepcom event at the CES. Coming in a wide range of styles, M-Edge has always supplied the ereading masses with quality and good-looking accessories, but now the company is venturing into the iPhone market as well. We spotted these pearlescent and lightweight cases at the booth, along with other Kindle Fire, Kindle, and Nook covers we wanted to snap up. Check out a few of our favorites in the gallery!
The Nook Simple Touch Reader was released in May, and third-party manufacturers are finally catching up to the demand with some great-looking cases. Latest to hit the scene is M-Edge's lineup of Nook Touch cases that are durable, affordable, and good lookin' too. Get a closer look at each in the slideshow!

Just in time for the holiday shopping season, Barnes & Noble announced its follow-up to the Nook ereader, the Nookcolor. Coming with a full color 7-inch touchscreen, the newest edition is more like a tablet than an ebook reader, and comes with the same features Nook users already enjoy, plus a few new ones for early adopters to explore.
One of my favorite repercussions of a new gadget? The accessories! Barnes & Noble did the new Nookcolor justice with their cases. From leather to nylon, to specialty Nookcolor-friendly tote bags, you're bound to find something that suits you. Check out my favorites below, then head to the Nookcolor accessory page for ordering!
Check out the rest after the break.
We've got a pretty big list of awesome cases for your Kindles, iPads, Nooks, and Readers going already, but I've come across a few from M-Edge recently that I couldn't help but draw your eye to. The company is prepping to release a big batch of cases for the new third-gen Kindle soon, but until then, check out some of these crave-worthy sleeves and jackets that will cover the hardworking ereader you have now.
I get asked a lot of questions at home, at the office, and even on social networking sites about gadgets and their accessories. Never one to turn down an opportunity to live vicariously through your purchases, I was asked by a fellow Nook fan via Twitter to help her find a high-end case. The inspiration: the Kate Spade Jane Street Cover ($125, left) available through Barnes & Noble. The folder-style cover was just what she wanted, but the colors screamed a little too loudly for her particular taste. Although designers haven't yet jumped on the Nook train like they have for the Kindle (case in point: the DVF Kindle cases we saw last week!), I found some stylish alternatives that look just as great. See what I came up with in this slideshow, and don't be afraid to ask for help with shopping, tips, or instructions in our community, or send us a note on Twitter or Facebook!
With all the iPad news over the past few months taking over the Internet (along with the iPad vs. Kindle debate), you may have forgotten about the other ereader on the market right now, the Nook. The Nook has already been dressed a hundred different ways since its release last year, but none have been as perfect for Spring as the JAVOedge Poppy Sleeve Case ($35), which coincidentally, you can buy on Amazon.
Coming in three colors, the JAVOedge case screams to be taken outside and enjoyed in the Springtime weather with its vintage-y print, while the tough, hard shell case protects your reader from bumps, bruises, and scratches. Since we're on the subject of ereaders — how are you liking your Nooks? Still in love?
Valentine's Day may be more than a few weeks away, but rest assured, pink is in the air. The pink candy was on the convenience store shelves weeks ago, and those familiar heart-shaped Sweethearts are decked out in current tech messages just waiting for you to snatch them up. So what's next? Well, an onslaught of pink ereader cases, of course! I confessed to getting a Kindle under the tree this past holiday season, but I'll start the V-Day season off right with a few fair-hued Nook cases to whet your palate before I break out my pink and red Kindle faves. Check 'em out here!
