Show & Tell Giveaway - eReader Skins

While planning for Under the Seapalooza, I was trying to come up with some fun ideas for things to and asked for input. Nikki Jefford (author of Entangled and the awesome guest post & giveaway, which you should check out: here) came up with the idea for weekly "Show & Tell" memes.

Here's how it works:

Unlike ongoing meme’s, this one is temporary - every Thursday throughout the month of Under the Seapalooza. Each week, I'll show off my favorite something (this week it's bookmarks), then you show off your favorite thing and enter to win a prize.

This is the schedule for Show & Tell Thursdays:
July 25th - Bookmarks
August 2nd - eReader Skins
August 9th - Journals
August 16th - Book Trailers

When I first got my Kindle two years ago, I discovered GelaSkins, and I've been obsessed with them ever since. I've gotten skins for my eReaders, my cell phone, and even my laptop. I've changed them a few times, but here are my current skins:
My nook skin is called "Coffee Angel" by Caia Koopman.

My Kindle Fire skin is called "Meow" by Lora Zombie.

So what about you? Do you have a skin for your eReader? If you don't have an eReader, do you have covers for you cell phone or laptop?

If you're like me and love decorating your electronics, then you're in luck. Because I'm giving away a $50 Gift Certificate to Gelaskins. What's awesome about them is they have skins for phones, laptops, eReaders, iPads, gaming, etc. You can design your own skin, or even order prints from their artists. So even if you don't have an eReader right now, you should definitely enter the giveaway.

All Show & Tell Giveaways will run until August 25th. It's open to the US & Canada only, sorry.

Thanks again to Nikki Jefford for coming up with such a fun idea!

  1. Cute idea! I just have a plain and boring kindle, so I wanted to thank you for sharing that site! I've already found 5 or 6 skins I need to choose from when I have the money! :)

  4. Those are so cool., I would love to get one for my oldest daughter. We read the Trylle Trilogy at the same time and loved it!

  5. I don't use any skins, but I have a really pretty antique-looking red cover for my Kindle Touch. It looks like an old book.

  6. "Meow" is awesome! I like that these have back and front skins. When I was gifted a Kindle 2 (about 3 years ago) it came with a back skin. Still love both.

  7. I don't actually own an eReader yet, though it is on my b-day wishlist (BTW: Wake's release date also happens to be my 21st birthday!)

    Now what I do have: Crime Scene from DecalGirl on my PS3 system wth two controller skins.

  14. Whoa! Those are some cool skins. My cell and kindle both have skins but my laptop doesn't. Neither of the skins I have are as cool as those, though!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Perfect timing! I was just thinking I need to get a skin for my new kindle. Love the skins you shared...GelaSkins got it going on:))

  16. I would LOVE to get one of these for my daughter. She's 20 but she shares my love of reading and I recently got her a nook simple touch. She would think these are so cool.

  17. I have a nook, but I don't have a skin yet.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I have a kindle but never wanted a skin for it because I love the simple white (same goes for my laptop, cell and ipad) UNTIL I saw the "meow" skin on your kindle fire! It's so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm a Nook girl, and I've always wanted a skin but I've never gotten one because I never knew about the quality. Thanks for your review!

    ReplyDelete
  20. My Nook is naked right now, lol! I have yet to find the perfect outfit for it, so it's been 'skinless' since I got it 8 months ago! I am loving these, will probably have to get one from Gelaskins soon!
    Thanks for the giveaway :)

  21. I love your e-reader skins! So cute! I have a plain pink gel skin for my Nook. I have been trying to decide on a skin for my laptop for like three months now but I just can't decide which one I want. Thanks for the giveaway!

  22. I also am lacking any skins for my Kindle. I have a standard Smart Cover for my iPad. It's an improvement over what I used when I first got my iPad and didn't get a cover for it: a towel. yup. that's right. I carried my iPad around in my purse... wrapped in a towel. Clearly I am a sophisticated electronics user.

  23. Mine is a silver NOOK Color with a purple, hot pink, and pink dot white NOOK cover with the hot pink inside the case.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I don't use any skins, because I'm dropping my electronics often, so I need more protection than that. But I would love one for my laptop :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I have one skin for my kindle but I've had it for a few years now and I would love a new one!

  26. I have a kindle but no skin. I really want a Tardis! Or anything orange. Thanks for the giveaway!

  27. When Ifirst got my reader I thought of it as a tool - I'm a book marketer, publicist, reviewer - and only wanted a cover to protect my investment. Gradually I found myself reading my favorite genres on it and realise now that it lacks the life spark it needs for this!

  28. I don't have any eReader skins, but it's a coincidence that I'm thinking of getting myself one for my birthday. : )

    ReplyDelete
  44. I have a nook color, and it has a boring purple case on it. Would love to get something more colorful for it. Thanks for the link to GelaSkins! They look awesome, and I needed a new case for my phone.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Unfortunately, I don't have an ereader skin. My Kindle Fire is plain as plain can be.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Ooo! Pretty skins! I've been eyeing them for my Nook and laptop, but haven't gotten one. Thanks for sharing that site, though, for me to browse.

    I can't decide if I want to get one that's pretty or obnoxious. Pretty would be nice, but obnoxious would work as a thief deterrent. (Hey, it works for my car keys.)

  50. Every person use skin cover to maintain their high-maintenance device from any sort of damage that usually arises during usage. One can search online for choosing skin cover according to their choice.
