Unloved Books FInd New Life As iPod Docks
Rich and Brenna Neeley, two clever book-loving crafters from Southern California, rescue discarded books and turn them into absolutely beautiful docks for your iPod, iPhone, and/or iPad.
But how can anyone chop up such gorgeous books? A lot of the books featured in their Etsy shop are really quite stunning. Well, according to their profile page, Brenna only recycles "books that haven't been appreciated elsewhere" with "more than a few [sneaking] their way into [their] personal collection." So you can be quite sure that the book being used "was not being loved as it should be."
Visit their Etsy page for more. I'm definitely ordering one soon.
