Overview

Slim, smart, and lightweight, this ingenious cover is the perfect choice for protecting your NOOK HD. The polyurethane exterior, accented by a subtle "nook" logo, is both strong and smooth to the touch; inside, a plastic shell cradles your device while offering full access to the controls. But that's only part of the story. An articulation on the front cover allows you to fold it back and tuck the edge into the metallic clip on the back of the case. The result is a sturdy stand that gives you the option of using your NOOK hands-free in landscape orientation, in either video-viewing mode or typing mode. (The viewing mode offers a more vertical angle.) Proving that this is a smart cover in every sense, it also puts your NOOK HD into sleep mode when you close the front flap and wakes it up when the flap is opened. A laser-etched "nook" logo on the back-cover clip adds to the visual appeal of this superior product.

    This is the perfect cover, it looks great and shows off how thin the nook is and the stand is great for movies, i also love that when you close it the nook goes to sleep and when you open it, it wakes up.

    To CSGrady,
    Am I missing something here? Since when does the Nook HD have a nook hook in the bottom left corner?

    Using the sleep/wake cover in violet on my new Nook HD...and LOVE it! Not sure what is happening for some of the other reviewers, but mine stays closed just fine until I open it....forms a stand for when that is useful, and is very flat and snug when folded fully back. Since the Nook HD doesn't have a "bottom left hook" (that's a different Nook device that has the hook) I find no design flaw.

    Definitely a good product! The only reason I wouldn't give this

    Definitely a good product! The only reason I wouldn't give this a higher star rating is because some apps (Agile Fusion's Mahjong Solitare, for example) only work in landscape mode in one direction. You can't use the stand at the lower setting without the app being upside down. I tried switch the cover so that it opened from left to right, opposite of a traditional book, but the Nook doesn't go into sleep mode when the cover is closed if it's put on that way. It's not a big deal but it does seem to be a design flaw for some apps. I use the Nook primarily for reading, and for that the stand is wonderful. It feels well built, doesn't add a lot of bulk to my device and is easy to hold.

    I purchased this two days after I purchased my tablet. Violet/Purple is my favorite color so that's why I got it. So far so good. I use the stand in the bed and on a table and it works good. No complaints. I would recommend it.

    I like the Nook HD+ cover/stand  in Groovy Violet, it's a pretty color
    & the stand feature is nice. But it's very thin & I feel doesn't offer much protection to the Nook HD+. I'm very careful with it & take excellent care of it. But if it were ever accidentally dropped not only is this cover thin but it doesn't securely close. It would be better if it was thicker & had cords like some of the Nook Color covers to close it.

    I brought this cover for my daughter and I love the look of it....I wanted something "pretty &Thin" and that's exactly the look and feel of it..
    The picture above is misleading as I thought it came with a pen...but $25 (sale) it's worth the monies spent!

    Works great as a stand but does not stay closed. Looks really tacky now with a rubber band keeping in shut. Very disappointing for $40 bucks!
