I found out early this morning that I won Second Place in Kimbooktu’s book gadget contest!
I invented a “book cloak” that you can make yourself (follow the link for simple instructions) to hide books you’re embarrassed to be seen reading in public. I never in a million years thought I’d actually win anything, to be honest – some of the other inventions were so funny and outrageous that I thought sure my mundane little gadget would fall by the wayside. But it didn’t, and now it shall forever live in Kimbooktu infamy. 🙂
In addition to a cute trophy graphic, Second Place receives:
- silverplate Hookmark
- a Bookease
- wooden starfish paperweight
- two “In My Book” cards
- handcrafted bookmark with pressed flowers
- The Low-Tech Library by Chella Quint
- two rolls of book tape
When I receive my prizes I’ll take a picture (both for y’all, and at Kimbooktu’s request).
I’m very excited about the prizes, but much more so about creating something that people found interesting and useful. Thank you so much if you voted for me. This really inspires me to keep doing and creating. 🙂
