eveywiecherton on Livejournal gives amazing steps on how to create your own River Song cover. The steps are clear, with pictures to help guide the way, and I’m sure it can be adjusted to fit any e-reader you may have.
Granted, getting an e-reader should probably come first, but still. Once I finally buy one, making this cover will be the first order of business.
You know what I don’t ever take time for? Paper books. When I do sit down to read, lately, it’s either webby stuff or library articles on my ereader. While doing things around the house, I enjoy listening to audiobooks (by the way: thanks, Liz, for suggesting The Parasol Protectorate! fun characters, fun story, great voice actress!). And, I mean, audiobooks are definitely “real books.” As are ebooks(!). But you can’t do anything crafty with them.
Also, yeah, very funny, right? The librarian who doesn’t touch books. But I don’t: I’m really not that kind of librarian. (You’d be surprised how little books have to do with most librarians’ jobs.)
I do think I could find the time to hold a book for this project, though! It’s very pretty!
Ohhh, you guys, you are not going to believe this! I found an eReader/tablet cover that looks like the book from The Neverending Story! (Am I dating myself, here? I hope not. I loved that movie when I was a kid and can still quote large swaths of it from memory.)
The cover is made by GrimcatProductions, on Etsy, and it is delightful! As the product description says, “Modern digital book readers and tablets can holds thousands and thousands of books – truly a never-ending supply!”
I’d really like to have one of these, but my Sony Reader Pocket Edition already has a very pretty case (also from Etsy). You’d better believe this Neverending Story cover is on my wish list if I upgrade, though! And then? Maybe I’ll finally read the book. (I’m a terrible librarian, sometimes.)
Made by a mother-and-daughter team, Sarah and Luiza, the talented pair offers numerous geeky gadget cases through their Etsy shop Nokomomo.
Star Wars fans can rock a Stormtrooper design, while Nintendo loyalists can show their pride with colorful Super Mario Bros. motifs. If I had an iPhone, though, their awesome David Bowie case would be mine in a heartbeat.
