I wanted a low-profile, quite speaker I could plug my ipod into. I also had these nifty speakers I ordered for the fun of it. I got them here http://www.mouser.com/Search/ProductDetail.aspx?R=AS01508MR-Rvirtualkey66500000virtualkey665-AS01508MRR. Really it was just to have some fun and I wanted to make the last thing you would expect sound to come from - a book - into a speaker for my gadgets and whatnot.

Step 1: Step uno

Gather you materiel's. I posted where to find the speakers I used on the first page, but you could use any speaker, really, as long as it fits in the book.

1. Speakers(If you use the kind I did you should solder on a connector to the ipod)
2. Book(I prefer paperback)
3. Hot Glue gun.
4. Razor

Step 2: Trace and cut

Trace out a 3 inch long piece of cardboard and stick one speaker on the left and the other in the right. Trace the shape of that card bord on to the first page of the book. start to cut until you are deep enough for your setup and either thread the line through a hole in the spine or out the bottom whichever you prefer.

Step 3: Fin

Interestingly enough I now do expect sound to come from books.

Hi. I LOVE this idea?  Were the speakers you were using battery powered, or did they run off the iPod power (somehow)
I suppose you could hide the battery pack in the book too.  I love it.
