Video of the Day: The Pocket-Sized Bible That Holds Your iPhone

Make yourself seem a little more refined by hiding your iPhone inside of BookBook, a combined wallet and smartphone case that looks like a vintage, pocket-sized book from the outside. Now, when you're checking in on email or scrolling through your last Instapaper-ed longread while walking down the street, nobody will know what you're up to. And maybe they'll stop giving you those dirty looks. (That the BookBook looks like a tiny little Bible could help with that, too.)

"The BookBook is the first iPhone accessory out of the guys over at TwelveSouth," according to TechCrunch. "If you recall, these are the same guys who made the Apple Keyboard/Magic Trackpad-melding MagicWand."

At $60, the BookBook is a pretty good deal. It's possible to spend far more than that on just an iPhone case. But this also has slots for your credit cards and a plastic window for displaying your driver's license or other identification. The only downside? The back of the BookBook case is missing what many others have: a hole for your camera.
