The JAVOedge nook Case/Sleeve Review

Cases hold the nook in place and generally and you keep them on while you read. A sleeve is generally used to slide the nook into it when you aren't using it. I like the feel of the nook in my hand while I read - if that is important to you, consider a sleeve. JAVOedge sells several cases and sleeves for the nook. A few weeks back they had a special on Amazon for these sleeves for $9.99 shipped, $10 off! How could I resist!?

A couple of the JAVOedge sleeves have a wood-grain appearance that they claim has a "natural, warm appeal of hardwood without chopping a single tree". Well, it's a decent material that seems to hold up, but I don't think anyone is going to think I have a hardwood case for my nook! It's pretty slim and lightweight. One thing I really like about it is the snug, padded fit for your nook. I don't feel like it is going to "slip out". I'm notorious for that sort of thing, but I still pay attention to how I carry it. There is no snap-on loop at the top of the sleeve to prevent it from coming out.

In addition the interior of the case is lined with a soft material to prevent scratches. I was concerned that grabbing the case could make the inside touch it, scratching the screen. I have to confess when I opened the box I had no idea what the pullout tab was for. It contracts when you put the nook in the sleeve and then you pull it the nook partially "ejects". This is actually important because you don't have to pull the nook out with your fingers, smudging the screen in the process.

Another thing I really like about the product is that it doesn't attract a lot of attention. It's simple, easy to use, and I feel like my nook is better protected. I don't think this sleeve will protect my nook if dropped. Sure, it might give a bit of cushion to the edges, but if that's what you want, this probably isn't the product for you.
