This idea is pretty ingenious! I had looked at book-phone chargers on Etsy, but they’re $50-60 and that’s more than I want to pay for something I don’t need.  And then I found this awesome DIY project tutorial from At The Pink of Perfection. Her husband made this Iphone dock for her, how sweet is that? Not only is this a book charger, but it’s a storage box as well. What a creative idea!
