Normally I'm not one to brag about my sister, but today she gave me the wonderful awesome terrific graduation present of a nook! I'm so excited, and it's perfect timing for my wisdom teeth being removed on Thursday. The covers at Barnes and Noble started at around $25 and I was not quite willing to pay that much, so I decided to make my own!
To make it, I gutted out a journal I didn't use with a razor. Then I covered the inside with material to make up for the rough binding. I covered the styrofoam that came in my nook's packaging with material as well and glued that onto the journal. I couldn't find any elastic at home or at the pharmacy, so I picked up some headbands instead because I want to keep this thing secure! I'll put it on top of the elastic when I want to read.
It almost doesn't shut anymore, but I barely squeaked by and I'm quite happy with the result!
