Like a lot of people who picked up a Kindle, I also bought Amazon's Kindle Leather Cover. It works quite well, but it has one obvious flaw: the Kindle is attached to it by two hinges along its left side. Every time I accidentally open the cover from the wrong side, I feel like I'm yanking the Kindle right out of its hinges.
Fortunately, there is a simple solution. The leather part of the cover isn't actually stitched to the soft cloth part. Using a carpet cutter, it's easy to pry the two apart.
Next, I glued in a small piece of elastic band into the cover's top-right corner.
Problem solved. The Kindle is now firmly held in place.
