Gadgets for book lovers

MP3 player shaped like a book January 25, 2011

I love the design of this MP3 player! It seems a bit big if you compare it with the popular devices, but when placed next to a book (as below) it is not too bad. Anyhow, you cannot really go wrong for $23. A nice present for a book lover, I would think.

No. There is nothing wrong with the look of a MacBook. The design is nice and sleek. I just does not really look like a Book, now does it? The solution is near! With this cover, the laptop looks quite the part. Even better: you protect it from damage too. I want one! If I owned a MacBook…

Not sure if this pillow that looks like a book is comfortable. I am pretty sure your boss is going to be pretty upset when he sees you walk into the building with this. Or it means that you need to get a life. 😉

Apple did it again with the introduction of the iPad. I did not expect it to be such a huge success. Since a lot of people own one, the book lovers amongst them might like this sleeve. It protects your over priced device from damage 😉

Book holders September 4, 2009

Do not ask me why, but for some reason people feel the need to use ‘book holders’ whilst reading. This product, available in many shapes and sizes, keeps your book open when enjoying a book. I have written about a couple before.

Whilst browsing the web to find you some nifty gadgets, I was quite amazed by the variety of book holders I bumped into. I will show you some I have come across. To me, this gadget is a mystery. Why do people need a device to keep their book open? It seems more inconvenient to me then handy. Besides that, I am worried about the damage a thing like this can do to a book.

If you use one and are happy with it, please leave a comment and tell what you find useful about it. I have to say, I have a book stand in my kitchen. Too keep my cookbooks standing and open whilst preparing something during cooking. But that is a somewhat different product. In any case, here is a small overview of what is for sale.

It is my worst nightmare to see my books go up into flames, but this bookmark is quite fun! A great way to mark the page of the hot book you are reading. Click here to find out more. This bookmark reminds me of the famous book by Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451. A couple of days ago a new adaption of this book came out, authorised by Bradbury.
