Still carrying your Kindle 3? Of course you are. You may not have changed up your ereader since the holidays (and why would you?), but that doesn't mean you can't switch out your accessories on a more frequent basis. I came across the Acase case ($25-$36), which covers your third-generation Kindle or Kindle DX in vintage brown leather, converts into a stand, and provides a nice reading light so you can still take in your favorite novel at night.
This case is gender-neutral enough to carry on your own Kindle, but still looks masculine enough for dear old Dad.
