I love my new book cover! I tend to be very hard on my books, so paperbacks aren't my thing. However, I was gifted a 7-book paperback set, so I thought it would be a good idea to find a book cover so they last longer. I am so glad I found this product! They come in lovely patterns/colors and a wide array of size. My books are pretty thick, so I shot a quick message to the seller for size recommendations. The size I needed was only in one color at the time, but they let me know that more would be made. A week goes by and they let me know that more book covers were ready to purchase! A couple days after placing my order the book cover arrived in simple but cute packaging tied with twine. The book cover came with instructions, I put the cover on my book, and have been reading like crazy! Thank you Bountiful Woods!

Quick shipping and surprisingly sweetly packaged in brown paper wrap with twine string/bow, in line with sending a used book. The book is gently worn but in great shape as described by the seller and it is perfect for me! Harkens me back to my elementary school days when I checked this book out from my school's library in the 70's. Nostalgic, to say the least. I recommend you check out the offerings at this seller's site as they are reasonably priced as well as considerate in how they pack/ship items.

This book set was beautiful! These are hard to find books and they are in great shape for their age. They were shipped well and the packing was also beautiful.

About

Necessity is the mother of all invention

Problem: When you are trying to read and eat in your car while on your lunch break (because it is nicer to be at the park than in the break room at work), it can be a real juggling act.

Solution: Invent a cover for paperback books that gently holds them open.

Result: Hands-free book holders with ease of page turning that are useful in many situations, and for all ages of book readers.

In addition to the book holders, we have a love for certain vintage items that catch our eye, and naturally that includes books.

We are makers and collectors and welcome the opportunity to share that here with you.

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

Books work best when close to sizes given.

When two or more of the book's dimensions are 1" (25.4mm) or smaller than the listed sizes, the book will tend to float and the diagonal elastic bands won't hold the pages open.

XXL: 9-1/2" tall by 6-3/4" wide (hardcover, very large softcover) 241mm x 171mm

XL: 9" tall by 5-3/4" wide (large paperback, trade size, hardcover) 229mm x 146mm

L: 8-3/4" tall by 5-1/2" wide (large paperback, trade size, smaller hardcover) 222mm x 140mm

M: 8" tall by 5-1/4" wide (many juvenile paperbacks, small trade, small hardcover) 203mm x 133 mm

Tall Sm: 7-1/2" tall by 4-1/4" wide (tall mass market) 191mm x 108mm

S: 7" tall by 4-1/4" wide (mass market paperbacks, pocket books) 178mm x 108mm

Care instructions

The fabric is permanently attached to book boards and may only be gently spot cleaned. Please do not saturate with water! We try to use darker colored fabrics as light colored fabrics tend to get dirty.

Special requests for certain sizes or colors

If you don't find what you are looking for already made, please don't hesitate to let us know! When possible we'll make a couple and give you first choice with no obligation.

Oversize / special sizes available upon request.

Excess Shipping Charges

We will automatically refund shipping overcharges should they occur with your order. If charges for items in your shopping cart seem inordinately high, you may contact us first to verify the correct amount.

ALL CUSTOMERS - PLEASE NOTE:

PLEASE provide a SECURE mailing address, packages are often larger than small mailboxes or mail slots and when left unsecured (on a porch, in a lobby, etc.) may be stolen.

We have no recourse with the delivery system once a package has been marked "delivered". Tracking your package once shipped will give you an idea as to its anticipated delivery date.
