The old Nook black surfaces had become sticky. This skin covers most of it (not the edges, but I knew that) and fits well with a nice smooth surface. Best way to clean the old sticky surface completely from lint was by blotting with a spare piece of the new skin. Arrived in about a week.

Fast delivery. Looks good quality. Yet to apply.

frog-tastic. I loved the skin I ordered for my mom. We looked everyone for something with frogs and this said her.

The material feels great and was easily applied. I think the design is lovey and I had no issues with air bubbles or anything else applying it. It was quick and well priced.

The issue I have is that the skin does not cover the entirety of the device. The impetus for purchasing the skin was primarily to cover the feel of the decaying rubber that becomes tacky over time.

It was only after I applied it that I returned to the product image and noticed the nearly half inch gap around the edge of the back that has gone uncovered. Now I must choose between the tedium of finding another material to cover the gap or not using the product.

So make sure you check the details of the image since dimensions aren't listed anywhere on the product page.

Thank you for the review. We're happy to hear that you like the design and had a good experience shopping at iStyles.

The back Skin piece of this Elegy Barnes & Noble NOOK Simple Touch Skin set does not indeed cover all the way to the edge at the back of the e-reader as shown on the product images.

The back of this e-reader is not flat as it tapers near the edges; if the Skin was extended further, it will bend well near the edge as the Skin can wrap around a single axis, but as the material cannot wrap around 2 axis at the same time, excess material will bulk up at the corners where the surface is rounded. It's like trying to wrap a ball with paper. This back Skin was thus designed to cover the flat surface on the back of the e-reader without going too near the edges so as to avoid any issues.

The back Skin is to be applied such that it's centred on the back of the e-reader, leaving an equal "gap" all around from all four edges.

Unlike cases that are bulky and heavy, Skins are perfect for e-readers such as these because they protect the surfaces covered from scratches and do not weigh down the device. If you need comprehensive protection while the device is in use, a case is the only option as that wraps all around the device, but such cases may negatively affect your reading experience. If you get a transparent or translucent case, the design of the Skin will be visible through it.

Alternatively, we'll recommend keeping the Skin as it is for styling and scratch protection, and when you need to transport the e-reader, place it in a padded bag or sleeve. Matching tablet sleeves are available.

Great Cosmetics. The company claims "protection for your device," Im not seeing that. As far as cosmetic appeal. Its a major kudos for them!!! Little pricy at $15.00 + 5.00 shipping. But if you want a fancy device its worth it. Real Fast trackable shipping!

Great experience, from great selection to the quick delivery. Will recommend and return. Thanks.

I love my iStyles...Nook, iPhone and Mac computer! It's fun, personal and unique! Thank you for the many many designs you offer as well!

I love iStyles! I've shared this site with many friends whom are impressed with the great selection of styles. Good variety, easy transaction, and fast shipping!
