E-reader jackets with bookish appeal
An e-reader may be high on the holiday list of everybody you know. But as much as we love these tiny, limitless libraries for space- and shelf-saving capabilities, the fact remains that they're sort of, well, gadgety looking.
Upgrade your literary loved ones' Kindles, iPads and Nooks with cute, appropriately bookish covers--all of which ship in time for Christmas.
For the bookworm Out of Print Clothing has just released 20 e-reader covers ($20 to $35) based on famous jacket designs, and we love the idea of gifting Moby Dick, Pride and Prejudice or (for your rambunctious nephew) Lord of the Flies versions. Similarly, Kate Spade's Nook covers take on the classics in creative ways--e.g., this cool reimagining of The Great Gatsby ($85).
For the friend who misses the feel of hardcover Play to his old-fashioned sensibility with a DodoCase ($60). The iPad or Kindle locks into its leather-and-bamboo frame, creating the illusion that there might be real paper inside.
For the New Yorker-obsessed They may have upgraded to a digital subscription, but there's no denying that The New Yorker's jacket design is half the fun. Choose from five of the magazine's most iconic covers ($30) for Kindle 3, Kobo or IRiver Story.
