Me. It's very classy and helps consolidate my personal belongings. It sucked carrying a phone, wallet and keys leaving me with bulky pockets and accessories spilling out. This combines all of it, and looks very classy at the same time. Plus it's easier to hide and protect the phone in plain sight.

Side note: I had my home broken into a year ago, and my SO and I have a lot of books (we're avid readers). While they took some of the typical stuff (PS3, games, etc.), they didn't even bother with the books, which both her Macbook Pro and my MacBook Air were sitting on the bookshelf in their BookBook cases. As far as we were concerned, they proved their worth there alone.

God i hate iPhone cases. I think it's hard to argue that the phone looks better without them 100% of the time. I understand why some people need them, but they're very aesthetically unappealing. My iPhone is a working device, i don't care if it gets a few scratches here and there. It's not a museum piece!

Thumb resize.

Actual image from their site. Talking on the phone with all your bank cards and cash sticking out? No thanks.

This is literally the worst looking thing ever. Anyone who decides to wrap their iPhone (or anything for that matter) in a faux book cover deserves to be shot on sight.


Oh shut up, its not my cup of tea but EACH TO THEIR OWN. Oh the world would be a boring place if we all liked the same things eh?

So you're arguing you hate covers because they're not aesthetically appealing, yet you don't care about getting scratches on your phone because you don't care about your phone being aesthetically appealing. :confused:

I'm waiting outside for you and your gun.

On the other hand, I don't see you producing anything better for me to buy, so I really don't think you're in a place to judge.

i never post on these things, but this is a product i genuinely believe in.

1. it's SUPER practical. i always forget either my phone or my wallet. when i had the BookBook, i always had both with me.

2. someone was asking about target demo... everyone i know that has these are guys between the ages of 18-35 (and i know a lot of people that have and love them).

3. 12South has fantastic customer service! last year, one of the seams on the inside of my BookBook started to come undone. i let them know and they sent me a new one ASAP.

3. if it's not your thing, that's fine! but why be a hater?
