New Yorkers guard your Kindles! On Saturday night an eReader was swiped from the hands of the owner while he was reading it in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn.

The New York Post reports: “Some jerk snatched an e-book reader from a guy who was waiting on the platform at the Seventh Avenue Q-train station on July 24. The book worm victim told cops that he was reading his Amazon Kindle at around 4 am when another dude walked up to him and said, ‘You don’t want to see this.’ The perp then grabbed the trendy gadget and hopped on a Manhattan-bound train.”

Maybe the newspaper Kindle cover is a good idea.
