If you are looking to lavish some attention and protection on your Barnes and Noble Nook  or Nook Color ebook reader, you can indulge yourself with these genuine leather Nook cover selections created by some  innovative designers.

Being a discerning buyer that appreciates good quality of workmanship, I am of the opinion that a book-style or flip-style Nook cover that allows accesssibility to all of the buttons and ports is the best choice as it will provide all round protection from bumps, scratches and in the worst case scenario…drops!

There are some great Nook covers that incorporate a stand feature in the design; a superb way to enjoy a hands-free read of the latest bestseller while sipping your morning coffee. Unfortunately, Barnes and Noble do not offer such variety in their designs so we have researched the best products that cater for these specific needs to save you time.

We have compiled a short-list of some of the best quality styles for protecting and showing off your Nook in our Best Top 10 Leather Nook Covers and Cases round-up. Enjoy!

These covers also have a small pocket for carrying papers, a magnetic button closure for when the device is not in use and a limited lifetime replacement warranty.

There is a small pocket for documents on the interior of the front panel of the book style cover only. A magnetically secured pull out kick-stand feature on the flip style cover affords convenient hands-free reading.

Fortunately BoxWave have been quick to manufacture book style (6.1 oz) and vertical flip style (7.4 oz) NookColor covers too, where the device is secured into the rear panel by an upper  cup and 2 elasticated leather straps lower down.

A concealed magnetic closure on the uppermost flap helps to keep the Nook secure and offers hassle-free accessibility to the Nook when not in use.
