I’m embarrassed to admit it took me a painfully long time to figure out what was happening in this picture. At first I was like, “Okay, an iPod is sitting on top of a beautiful book… wait…ooooh!” Can you tell I own neither an iPod or an iPhone? Yes. But for all you clever, technology and book-loving folks out there, here you have it. The best of both worlds.
Rich and Brenna Neely are the people behind the Etsy shop Inbooks, and this is their message to the world:
“Love. Books. Always have. We hate to see them neglected or not in use. We rescue these discarded tomes from certain landfill death, or from their dreary, immobile existence in the dark, disregarded recesses of a bookshelf. Our goal is to bring more books into your life.”
Yep. We can get behind that.
What do you all think? Are you into this trend of repurposing books as centerpieces and such? Is it just a fad? Which book would you choose for your charging deck? If I had an iPhone I’d probably pick this, this or this one.
