Covers are not cheap. Amazon makes some covers that include a light, and cost almost as much as the Kindle itself. I did some serious searching, and checking the reviews. Some people give a 1-star review because they are too difficult to please, others give it because they are upset about shipping (that's not cool). But some had genuine issues. I saw reviews where the 1, 2, and 3-star reviews totaled more than the 4 and 5-star reviews, so I skipped those.
Buried in the list were a few covers by a company called Timbuk2. Not many reviews, but one gave all the details that I needed, and I went for it. By the way, I am not being paid or getting anything for this review.
The one I got was black/gunmetal/red.

Inside, there are straps that hold the Kindle snugly in place. The cover is pretend fur, so the most sensitive part of the Kindle is protected when closed.

On a side note, I purchased a Belkin reading light. At first, I was not very happy with it because the Kindle Touch has rounded edges and getting it to stay put was a bit dicey. Belkin made the light with an expandable base so that it works with covers. This one barely fits, but it does fit:
