makaiju - thhhhhhbbbb!

Cool new case for my iPhone

I am so in love with my new cell phone case.  It's just the coolest thing.  It's made of faux leather in a wallet style.  The outside is printed to look like the cover of the book (I picked 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea because the tentacle design looks fantastic) and the inside has three pockets and the plastic holder to snap the cell phone in place.  A magnetic strap keeps the wallet closed and protects the phone.

I love this case so much that I immediately showed it to my boss and said we absolutely, positively must get the design into the store.  She agreed, especially after seeing some of the other available designs -The Great Gatsby, Alice in Wonderland, Pride and Prejudice, and Catcher in the Rye.  I've been talking with the designer and it looks like we will have them in the store  by early March.

I'm really excited!  I know that the cases will do well, and I want us to have more "bookish" things in the store.  I'm glad that my bosses have agreed to take a chance on one of my suggestions.  There have been three or four other proposals I've made that went nowhere, and I hope that if the phone cases do well they'll be willing to revisit my earlier ideas, because I still think literary mugs and library-themed hosiery would do really well with our customers.
