Amazon’s Kindle initially paved the way for e-readers several years ago.
I sat back watching this cultural evolution transpire with a breaking heart. We are living in a society in which local libraries are nearly obsolete yet an unspeakable number of personal prints are available at your fingertips. Fleeting are the days where reading a book involves the romantic charm of turning pages; today that action is replaced by a digital “Whoosh” sound (thankfully that can be muted) and the click of a fingertip.
The sight of an old book with a sturdy spine that has held strong through the years and the soft swath of paper that is each page, still tugs at my heart strings a little bit. HOWEVER, I have now plunged wholeheartedly into the revolution that is 21st century reading. The opportunities, selection and convenience are endless! Travel is easier, indecision does not limit your library and split second choices are no longer necessary.
For that reason, when I saw this tutorial I had to share it with you! This is the perfect way to combine the beauty of a book with the functionality of an e-reader while protecting it! Salt Tree is a crafter’s haven and I encourage you to check out her blog for the instructions regarding hollowing a book to be used as an e-reader case.
