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…

If you need glasses for reading, and have you have+3.00, these glasses might be something for you. The glasses themselves look pretty good and the case looks even better!

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. 😉


Bookish sleeve for your iPad January 17, 2011

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 😉


Bookish baby shower

I promise that I will not post too much baby related stuff 😉 I found this a very nice idea, though. A library baby shower! Too bad showers are not a normal thing to do in The Netherlands…

As most of you know, I took some time off to focus on my pregnancy. I am very pleased to tell you that our first child was born on September 29. 2010. We are over the moon with our beautiful baby girl, Lily. Below you can see the front of the birth announcement. Of course with a bookish touch ;D

Since we are now pretty much settled into parenthood, I will pick up on posting again. So, from now on, you can visit again for your regular fix of bookish gadgets!

I told you about my pregnancy a couple of months ago. And that I would take a break in posting blogs. You can be updated by following me on Twitter, a couple of you do. If you are interested to follow me you can do that via

For the dear readers that do not follow me, I will post this little update. We are doing great. The baby – a girl – is fine and growing fast. I am now over 26 weeks pregnant. My due date is around October 2nd. We had a lot of building work going on at our house, which made it very busy times the last months. Now I am entering the last trimester, I am happy to say almost everything is done. I now hope to relax a bit more and enjoy my pregnancy leave that starts the last week of August.

I hope to pick up my blogging again when the little girl is born. Thanks to everybody for their kind e-mails, their congrats posts et cetera. I really appreciate it! If you want to support Kimbooktu in any way, you can do so by shopping at Amazon. 😉

I’ll keep you updated on our ‘Great Expectation’!
