Win a Leather Book Macbook Case (a BookBook!)

I love love love my BookBook case from TwelveSouth. I have a 15″ Macbook and with my frequent trips to the hospital and medical school for work and edu-ma-cation bizness…I tend to worry a lot about it getting stolen from my bag during a trip to the bathroom, coffee break, etc.

The boys over at TwelveSouth have had a  real hit on their hands with the invention of the BookBook. They take real leather and make it look like a vintage leatherbound book, then they put in some reinforcement for hardback proteection, and customize it to the dimensions of the Macbooks. Genius!

I don’t know what I like better about mine: the boot leather smell (delicioso) or the fact that it is kind of a tricky disguise for would-be thieves. Now it just looks like I’m carrying around a really old book from the library in my bag instead of the obvious Hi-I’m-a-laptop neoprene case.

Please follow the instructions below to enter to win one in your choice of size or color!

  • Entry 1: Visit TwelveSouth and pick out which size and color BookBook you would want to buy or win, then leave me a comment tellin’ me all about it
