I s this a good idea? Answered

Um i'm thinking of putting a cheap LCD display digital alarm clock in a small hardcover book with the LCD and buttons popping out of the cover, DO you think this is a good Idea? I think it will be good for the competition because it reuses two things, a unwanted book, and a lame looking digital clock. Both of which would be thrown out by any sensible person. PS I looked and this hasn't been done before. Please post suggestions and comments.

Use a bible (or a book of similar value). I think that this is a great idea. I'd suggest re-binding it in leather using an old leather garment (reused item #3).

. I don't like the idea of ruining any book, but it does sound like a good way to beautify an otherwise drab alarm clock. Go for it! . Not sure what it has to do with Thanksgiving. :)

Tis the season, or maybe he/she is thankful for a new way to reuse old stuff :-) I would only have one caution, be careful where you take it. Some one could very easily tackle you thinking you have another bomb. . .

ir you glued a few hard cover books together standing back to back you could have a base for a funky lamp stand incorporating your digital clock.
