While you're in the store (if you are), take a look at the clearance cases. There were several for the older Kindle Touch (4th gen) at my store in the $4 - $7 range in special clearance racks. They look to be the same size and design as the current Kindle Touch (or is exactly the same?) I found an Amazon Kindle branded leatherette case for $4 and another Amazon brand case, but with the built-in light for only $7 (~$50 MSRP,) UPDATE: just checked and the 4th/5th gen Touch was a little slimmer. So the current kindle does snap in place with the 4th gen cases, but the lid doesn't close because of the thicker 7th gen build.... not without a little work anyway. Some other clearance cases still might fit, but can't tell without trying.
