Over the weekend I went and spent 80 bucks at Books A Million. I got three new books and I was super excited to break into them, and on Sunday it was nice and sunny so I went by the pool to get a good tan and read a good book.
I’m reading a paperback and getting some sun when I feel hot, so I put the book down, jump in the pool, swim around a bit, pretend I’m a dolphin, and then get out to go read again. Now because my swimsuit was wet it made the towel wet, because the towel was wet I had no where to put my book that was bone dry, because I had nowhere to put my book that was bone dry I essentially ruined my book because the pages got wet and the dye from my towel ran into the pages, and now I’m pissed because my brand new book looks like shit.
Here’s the invention: I want to create a polyurethane cover/sleeve that will go around the front and back of the book and protect it from water. The sleeve will essentially be a big clear book jacket, it will be big enough to cover the pages and the spine, but leave room for you to turn the pages and put them in the adjacent sleeve. I will have multiple sizes that would fit on your smaller paperback books, and also your new release big ole hardcover books. The sleeve itself will be clear (so that people can see what you’re reading) and, if we can swing it, will have a nifty little bookmark in it too.
So who has the technical skills to actually make this? We could make a fortune!
