iPad mini bezel too thin for reading ebooks

So recently, I've been trying to shift from my Kindle to my mini for reading. The screen is fine for me, but I've come across a different issue. I like holding ebook readers in portrait mode - just looks and feels more natural to me. The problem is that the mini is significantly harder to hold in portrait mode than a Kindle is simply owing to the much narrower bezel. I find myself having to grip the mini on the fat bezels on the bottom instead.

The other alternative is to just grip the mini with my entire hand across the back. But that gets sort of tiring after a while. And I'm looking for a back cover like the Caudabe Shell that I have for the big iPad, but I'm afraid if I put something like that on, it'll be even tougher to grip in that position.

Anyone else have this issue?
