Went with the Kindle Touch and a case (as people have mentioned, took 4 days to get here which was great) and a few other small items.

Mine didn't take long and they provided me with a tracking number. It's a tight squeeze getting the kindle mounted but once it's in it's very secure. Did you see the James Bond ones they have? Might have to get myself one of those...

Arrived yesterday so not long. The tracking stopped on the UK tracking site once it left the UK but I picked it up again with NZPost once it hit NZ. You are not wrong about it being a tight squeeze to get in. I am also not 100% happy about the way it covers the page turn buttons as it takes more effort to turn click the button I will give it some time to settle in, If it is still an issue might "mod it" Wink. However it looks great.
