As to my K2, I find it a little difficult to hold, but that's probably because I'm just still getting used to it. I don't have a cover for it yet (I've got a mEdge Executive on order), and when my mEdge comes I'll keep my K2 in it all the time just like I do for my K1.
My big problem with holding K2 is the lack of a rubbery back cover. The thing's awfully slippery and I'm very careful about dropping it. I imagine I'll get a better grip one I get my mEdge, but until then I'm being extremely careful (and it's my K1 that I carry around with my in my pocketbook, though K2 might be better for carrying around because of its thinner form factor in my purse.).
But the K2 is slipperier, and I also keep mine in the case Amazon sells for it. I didn't use a cover on the K1, but it's a big help on the K2
I ended up not buying the K2 case but it hasn't been a problem. I usually only read for a couple hours at a time and I've found the K2 fits perfectly in my hand and doesn't cause any pressure to my hand. The edge is curved and it seems to fit right into the cradle of my hand. Because it is light, I find myself forgetting that I am holding it!
Hope this helps,
I really loved my M-Edge on the K1, but it was an older one that didn't have that extra space at the left for the reading light (which I don't have and don't have any intention of getting). I'd rather not have that wasted space at the left, but it's really not that inconvenient when I fold the cover back for reading.
I really wanted a cover with four corner straps rather than that clipping system that the Amazon cover uses, and the M-Edge (non-leather, and I'm a vegetarian anyway) is quite reasonably priced, so that's what I got, especially considering my happy experience with the M-Edge on my K1.
K2's pretty easy to hold now, but it really was awfully slippery before I got my new M-Edge cover.
EDIT: One problem I do seem to be having, though, is that I'm accidentally hitting the Home button instead of the Next Page button with my right thumb. I'm going to have to get used to this on K2, but at least I can use the Back button when I make that mistake. I think it made more sense to have that little Home button on the keyboard the way the K1 was designed, since you really don't use the Home button very much when you're reading.
It sounds awkward, but it's quite comfortable, especially when I have a silicone skin on the Kindle. My Kindle 1 corners were too sharp for this position, but I tried to use it, anyway.
I originally used the standard cover, but it always flies open like a hang glider when I drop it, so I switched to the M-Edge Latitude (it zips closed). The Latitude is roomy enough to hold my Kindle with or without the silicon skin and it's quick and easy to slip Kindle out or I can keep in the case for privacy or to block my reading light from shining on others.
You can also make the kindle automatically turn pages for you by turning on the text-to-speech feature (but if you don't want the voice, just drop the volume down to 0 and it'll still turn pages when the reader gets to the bottom). Could save some trouble.
This is different from a vinyl skin, which is simply a big sticker. Vinyl skins are mostly for decoration. They can prevent scratches, but may or may not improve your grip.
If you go to the Kindle Accessories section of the Kindle Store (using your computer), a search for "Kindle skin" will return many pages if results.
