Amazon readies custom Kindle covers for the masses

Amazon readies custom Kindle covers for the masses

This week the teams responsible for pushing as many Kindles as possible this holiday season have hit upon a rather lucrative business: custom-made covers. What Amazon intends on doing here is offering up a service that would normally be done by a variety of 3rd-party accessory makers, doing the work themselves to make the whole business feel much more like a single package.
