I order this item for my mom. She’s always on her Kindle. I thought she had the Kindle paper white but she has the Kindle fire. So the Kindle fire is a little bit smaller then the paperwhite . So this case is a little big but she can still store her Kindle in it while she’s not using. She still loves it. Love the design on it too. Now she doesn’t have to worry about her kindle getting scratched or break. Especially she brings it along with her in her purse.
