It was such a good experience buying from RichNeelyDesigns. I purchased the Nancy Drew booski as a gift for my mom's birthday and sent a message with my purchase asking if it could be delivered within nine days. It arrived in seven :) just in time! It's very neatly crafted and looks exactly like the photo. My books are "The Scarlet Slipper" and "The Secret of the Wooden Lady". Would highly recommend this as a gift to yourself or the book lover in your life.

About

Books re-born into iPhone and iPad docks.

Digital versions have long been edging out ink and paper. What do we say to that? Believe in Books. Yes, the weight of a book in your hand and the smell of it can't be matched, but never forget that good stories and authors thrive in any medium.

Instead of letting used books go quietly, we've resolved to re-use them. We rescue discarded books from landfill death, or from their dreary existence on a bookshelf. Our goal is to bring more books into your life, so when you see your booksi™ you are reminded of how wonderful a book can be. Maybe you'll be inspired to read that classic you've been meaning to for so long.

We don't use books that have significant rare antiquarian value, as we feel those ought to be preserved. We find our vintage books in libraries, garage sales, street vendors, thrift stores, used book stores, craigslist, other people's attics, garages, closets, or even in boxes on the curb. As a Comparitive Lit. major, Brenna chooses to recycle only vintage books that haven't been appreciated elsewhere. More than a few of our finds have mysteriously snuck their way into her own personal collection. You can be confident that your vintage book was not being loved as it should be, until now.

We also use gorgeous new editions of the classics. Although we're using them to another purpose, we also now have all of them in our home library, and we continue to support these fantastic editions. Maybe someone young will see your classic booksi®, and it will help keep the words of Austen and Dickens and Tolkien thriving forever.

We work in sunny southern California. We started selling our designs in January 2011, but we've been using books as much more than reading material for a long time -- home decor and coasters and shelves and paperweights and nightstands and wedding centerpieces...you get it. In fact, using books as decoration at our wedding inspired us to create Rich Neeley Designs and share them with you.

We also hope to launch a new shop in the future, which can be found at etsy.com/shop/TheEmptyShelf. We also use the username Richard Neeley.

Believe in Books.


FAQ:

--Are your chargers compatible with my case?

Yes! But you have to let us know if you have a medium, thick, or extra thick case in the notes to seller upon checkout. We test our chargers with a thin case to be sure it connects. Some cases (for example: Otterbox), do not have enough space at the bottom for the phone to charge with the case on. Please leave instructions about your case in the notes to seller at checkout.

--Does this charge my iPhone 5 or 6?

Yes. You can choose a 30 pin (all older models of iPhone), or Lightning cable for iPhone 5/6/6+ (compatible with all models of iPhone 5 and 6).

--Does this charge my iPad?

The iPhone booksi® does not. We do make booksi for iPad, but the standard iPhone docks should NOT be used with your iPad. Although the cable is the same, the iPad needs support behind. Check out the iPad dock section, or contact us for a custom request!

--How long is the cable?

Standard cable length is 3.5 ft. A bit of that length is "eaten up" by the book.


--Can I still read the book?

The books are sealed lightly to provide stability to the dock. Your charging cable has replaced a section of the pages, which have been removed. Don't attempt to open it, as this will compromise it's stability, and it'll make for some pretty choppy plot and dialogue. :)

--Don't you think it's shameful to destroy books?

It was our love of books that inspired us to create these. We want them to be displayed and put to use. Many, many books are obsolete and discarded. This isn't going to stop, it's going to increase. And, beautiful new books should not sit on a warehouse shelf, or be pulped. They should be seen every day, they should remind and inspire you. We never use books that have significant rare antiquarian value, as we feel those ought to be preserved. We find our vintage books in libraries, garage sales, street vendors, thrift stores, used book stores, craigslist, other people's attics, garages, and closets. We started this because we were accumulating what we'll nicely call an "overly excessive" collection of books. What we hope to do is: 1. Recycle, and 2. Keep books and great authors at the forefront, in your home and in your thoughts. We'd like you to see your booksi dock in the morning, and be reminded that you really did want to get around to reading Oliver Twist.

Safety:
We test products for durability and safety. However, due to the electrical nature of some of the items sold, PLEASE use caution and common sense when using them. Please do not leave any electrical parts on or running indefinitely, as it is a hazard, and we will not be held responsible for any damage caused by misuse or neglect. And, of course, be careful when inserting or removing your device, and USE BOTH HANDS, one on the device, and one on the book. All iPhone, iPod and iPad charging docks are created to work with current and past models of the devices. We make no guarantee in regards to their functionality with future iPhone, iPod and iPad, or other products.
