EDITED:

Never mind!  I should've kept looking on the M-Edge site before asking.  I found a non-leather jacket style case as soon as I posted my question.  Sorry to all who open this ready to answer a question (it was looking for a non-leather jacket style case as the leather case I have is driving me nuts with the smell.)

Sorry!  I found a canvas jacket on the M-Edge website.  I currently have the M-Edge Executive Jacket, which works well, but it's leather, and it smells too strongly for me.  I can't stand the smell of leather... I guess in the store, I didn't smell it, but now when I read, it bothers me.  It wasn't cheapish, though... it was about $40.  As soon as I had posted, I found this: http://www.medgestore.com/products/kindle3-latitude.psp, which is a canvas jacket.  I won't get it yet because I can't spent another almost $40 now, but am keeping it in mind.  Both have a slot to put the book light in, which I like.

i just bought a different sleeve from Belkin in plum - this one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003VPABOG

i debated for quite a while between that one and this other one, but the little pocket won me over.  also, i saw a picture somewhere that you can use the double zipper to change the Kindle while it's still in the sleeve and that was a point it its favor.

some of the comments do say it's got a strong smell to it (it *is* neoprene), so i'm planning on leaving it out and open elsewhere from when it gets here until i leave for vacation in 2.5 weeks and possibly again for a while after i get home.  i wanted to be able to read without any kind of a cover, but did want some protection while i'm carrying it around in my carryon luggage - and it probably wouldn't be bad for everyday to have it covered rather than just sitting around where the cats can step on the screen.

Sandy, thanks of the info about price being less on Amazon.  I had just happened to be in Staples for something else and saw it, and so decided to buy it there.  If I get the canvas one, I'll order from Amazon.

Ellen, I don't tihnk neoprene would bother me like leather does (I have a really strong aversion to the scent of leather!)- that looks like a nice sleeve.  I like a jacket, though, that I can keep on it while I'm reading it.  Makes it feel a little more sturdy and a lot less like I'm going to break it, lol!
