This Instructable is for those of you who wish to have a wireless charger for your phone with it being a little less obvious about it being a phone charger. This can be made from any book as long as you are ok with never being able to read from the book again.
I chose to use the 6th book in the Harry Potter series. This is because it is my favorite of them plus I like the artwork on the dust cover. In addition it adds to the sense of magic since wireless charging is basically which craft.

Step 1: Acquire Your Book
I sourced my book off of Amazon for about 5 bucks as I opted for a used copy. You don't necessarily need one with a dust cover it helps tidy things up at the end.
Step 2: Get Your Charger
I went with: Qi Wireless Charger, GMYLE Mini Qi Charging Pad for All Qi Compatible Smartphones.
This again I sourced from amazon.
Also since I have an iPhone I purchased a BEZALEL® Qi Wireless Charging Receiver Phone Case.... Again purchased on Amazon.
Step 3: Drill the Hole and Cut the Slot
Using a 2.75" hole saw, cut a hole about the depth of the thickness of your charger. Once that job is completed you'll need to provide a slot for the cable to go through. I used an Xacto to cut through the layers about a half inch wide to allow for the USB to pass through.
Step 4: Glue Pages Together
Now comes the slightly tedious part. Spray each page that you drilled and cut the slot together. This is to provide a bit of rigidity for the book to receive the charger.
Step 5: Insert and Enjoy
Now all you have to do is insert the charger into the book, slip the cover onto the book to hide everything, and start charging your phone.
