My 2¢:
Bitcoin is pretty cool, right? The power it gives back to citizens across the world is nothing short of amazing and it has a fantastic community to support it. After reading all about it, I naturally arrived at the big question: how do you really particpate? Well, I don't have the money to set up a mining rig, so thats out. I'm not interested in just plunking down some cash to speculate on the exchange rate, so that's out too. I am pretty handy at making things though, and contributing a material good to an emerging economy seems truest to the spirit of Bitcoin anyway. I bought a few supplies, invested some time, and built something with the sole intent of selling them for Bitcoins. Its a small act, but with it comes membership in something truly revolutionary. So, without further aggrandizing, I present to you, the Kindle 3 Case - Analog Style

Payment:
Bitcoin only, including shipping costs! Price for each case is 6.50 BTC plus actual shipping costs 2.00 BTC including shipping within continental U.S..  Send me an email, or post in this thread to claim your cover and arrange payment and shipping.


A Few Notes:

All of the cases can be folded back (in half along the spine) when the Kindle is being used.

Two of the cases, "Nancy Drew" and "Who Moved My Cheese" are only as wide as the kindle itself.  These cases still offer excellent protection against scratches and most other damage.  They are however, more susceptible to damage from being dropped since the edges are more exposed.  These would be great for an "around the house" cover, but for serious travelers or rough users, one of the larger cases might be a better choice.

These were designed specifically for Amazon's Kindle (3rd generation) eReader.  I have not tested wether they would work with the Nook or any other reader.  If the dimensions of the other eReader is close, one of these cases would likely work, but I'm not making any promises.



Shipping Details:

Buyer pays actual shipping costs. FREE SHIPPING within continental U.S.  On day of shipping, I will  use the Mt. Gox exchange rate to convert the shipping costs to Bitcoins.

I will ship internationally.

I would really like to see a few more of these sell, so I've dropped the price by 1.5 BTC, and decided to throw in free shipping too (within continental U.S.)

Given the recent rally in BTC vs. $US, I've dropped the price of these covers way, way down to only 2BTC!  Even at the current exchange, this leaves barely any profit for me after cost of materials and shipping.  I would love to be able to say I sold them all for Bitcoins so my friends and family think I'm a little less crazy!
