These Wallets Look and Feel Just Like Classic Works of Literature

You may not be able to drag your physical library outside the house, but there are other ways to show off your literary side wherever you go. These wallets look just like real hardcover books, and they're small enough to fit inside your purse or pocket.

The Novel Bookwallets, now available through Kickstarter, are designed to look like miniature versions of famous books. The outside depicts the classic book design on a clothbound cover, giving it a vintage feel. It opens up like a real book, but instead of pages, you'll find wallet compartments made from cream-colored vegan leather inside. There are pockets for cards, cash, and anything else that fits inside a conventional wallet.

Bookwallet buyers can choose from one of 14 classic covers, including Robin Hood and His Merry Men, Alice in Wonderland, Huckleberry Finn, and Pride and Prejudice. The initial goal of the Kickstarter campaign was $2500, and with each stretch goal that's reached, the makers will offer new covers based on the most popular requests. The Dracula and Alice Wonderland covers came after they reached their $17,000 stretch goal, and if the team raises $35,000 before the campaign ends on August 6, 10 more covers in total will be unlocked.

You can reserve your Bookwallet on Kickstarter today, with the lowest pledge tier of $25 getting you one wallet and the highest tier of $180 getting you 12. Once the campaign ends, you will be emailed by the company to choose the design you want, with deliveries slated to begin in October.

Now that Prime Day is over, and with Black Friday and Cyber Monday still a few weeks away, online deals may seem harder to come by. And while it can be a hassle to scour the internet for promo codes, buy-one-get-one deals, and flash sales, Amazon actually has an extensive coupon page you might not know about that features deals to look through every day.

As pointed out by People, the coupon page breaks deals down by categories, like electronics, home & kitchen, and groceries (the coupons even work with SNAP benefits). Since most of the deals revolve around the essentials, it's easy to stock up on items like Cottonelle toilet paper, Tide Pods, Cascade dishwasher detergent, and a 50 pack of surgical masks whenever you're running low.

But the low prices don't just stop at necessities. If you’re looking for the best deal on headphones, all you have to do is go to the electronics coupon page and it will bring up a deal on these COWIN E7 PRO noise-canceling headphones, which are now $80, thanks to a $10 coupon you could have missed.

Alternatively, if you are looking for deals on specific brands, you can search for their coupons from the page. So if you've had your eye on the Homall S-Racer gaming chair, you’ll find there's currently a coupon that saves you 5 percent, thanks to a simple search.

To discover all the deals you have been missing out on, head over to the Amazon Coupons page.

If you're looking for another face mask to bring with you while you're out and about, the Electric Respirator LED Fan Mask offers plenty of protection, thanks to a four-layer, KN95-certified filter and a two-speed fan motor for constant fresh air. And while it may sound like a massive contraption to wear, it’s actually a tiny geometric piece that's available in black or white.

The custom four layers of filters in the Electric Respirator LED Fan Mask are designed to keep the air you breathe safe and clean, which starts with a strong anti-bacterial net to filter large particles in the air. Anything that gets through there will be checked at the second filter—the activated carbon filter, where particles are sterilized and deodorized. It’ll even keep you safe from harmful substances like formaldehyde.

If stubborn particles like pollen, smoke, and dust still make their way through the first two layers, they’ll be faced with a HEPA filter at the third layer. A fourth and final layer works to inhibit bacterial growth through the release of negative oxygen ions. The two-speed fan motor doubles down on moisture prevention.

You can get the modern four-layer mask in black or white, and for a limited time, you can get them each in black or white two-packs for $87.

Prices subject to change.
