If you are the happy owner of a new Kindle Touch you may be wondering what are the best accessories for the Touch. Check out my buyer's guide!
Must Have Kindle Touch Accessories
So you have a new Kindle Touch and you are wondering what accessories are worth buying for it. One of the clever things that Amazon does is that it ships their e-readers with a very simple setup - a USB power/connection cord and that's it.
So what do you need to buy? Well nothing really - which will not stop plenty of people buying lots of Kindle accessories!
Universal Stylus - Recommended for Kindle Touch

A Stylus for Your Kindle Touch
This is personal taste, you chose whether you want to use a stylus on your touch or just your fingers. The thing is if you do buy a stylus there seems to be a huge difference is the performance of the cheaper and more expensive styluses. This one is costs more than some, but is still reasonable, but has awesome reviews.
Particularly recommended for anyone who has trouble with their hands through disability or just has fat fingers (like me!).
A Cover or Case For Your Kindle Touch? This
How to Choose the Right One!
A cover, case or skin are probably the most popular accessories for any e-reader. The important thing is to get a case or cover that is designed specifically for the Touch. Although the Kindle 4 and the Kindle Touch look the same in photos - they are not the Touch is very slightly larger (check the dimensions). So if you are buying a close fitting cover, or particularly a skin, you must make sure it says Kindle Touch in the description! If unsure - ask!
Once you have the size sorted, then its a matter of whether you want a case which stays on the Kindle while you read or a cover which you use as you take your Kindle with you. Purely personal taste, obviously having a permanent case adds slightly to the weight and bulk of the Kindle.
The other choice is if you want to have a case which incorporates a light. This is a very streamlined option for someone who often reads at night with the lights out, or just in poorly-lighted rooms.

If you are not sure whether you want a case or a cover for your Kindle then a bundle is a good option too - you can try both, and sell or give away the one you don't use.
