Rich Neeley Designs Giveaway (CLOSED)

Last year I purchased two beautiful iPhone chargers from Rich Neeley Designs on etsy (The Secret Garden and Twain's Huck Finn) as soon as I got my iPhone. I've seen them all over the internet, but I was worried their function wouldn't perform as well as their beauty. Well, after using them for a few months, I think any Gadchick user with an iPhone or iPod would love  this as much as I do. It's powerful, and as much as I love my gadgets around the house, it isn't an eyesore. This recycled book turned charger is something you want to display. There's a USB plug to use directly to a computer or a USB wall connector.











At the time of my purchase, the etsy shop didn't feature iPad chargers, but they do carry them now. I don't recommend using your iPad for the iPhone charger because it will crack at the base.



Gadchick loves this product so much, we're giving away one iPhone/iPod charger of your choice from Rich Neely Designs. Leave a comment with your favorite way to read a book. Do you love your using your Kindle? An iOS product? Or your Android? Or are you devoted to the printed word. We'd love to know!  Tweet about it, blog about it, spread the word and it'll track back to this blog post as an entry. Good luck!

  1. Nothing can take the place of turning a page in a book. But, my kids have certainly been a big part of turning me on to ebooks. It's nice to not need a flashlight anymore to read in bed:) and I'd love to have one of these chargers!

  2. This is eye-candy!!!!!!!I'm still old-school I guess, I read real books from cover to cover, preferably in bed. I've been thinking about getting a Kindle but unfortunately I haven't been able to purchase one yet.

  5. These are stunning and beautiful. My favourite way to read a book is still in print but slowly but surely I am finding myself reading more and more books on my Ipad. I think it is the ease and variety.

  9. Great give away! I think I will always prefer printed word, there's something a little romantic about it. I have been thinking about getting a Kindle though, and hopefully I'll like reading that way too.

  10. I find that I often read "silly" or slightly embarrassing books that are just for funsies on my ereader or my iPhone (especially great at work because it can look like I'm reading email or something more work-related). I usually read my more scholarly books in print form. I guess I WANT people to see that I'm reading something intelligent, but would prefer to hide my guilty pleasure reading.

  11. I love a good old fashion book, something about cracking the spine of a paperback for the first time, folding each page back as you read deeper & deeper into it's pages. I'm old fashioned like that, I have a iPad now, but still prefer to read old school style. :-)

  12. I love my kindle! I read on my iPhone and on my computer. I still read "real" books too! If it's printed, I read it!

  13. I was never a fan of e-readers. I've always been a strict fan of the real thing, hardcover or paperback. My boyfriend surprised me with a Kindle last year, so I downloaded a handful of free books. Once Amazon Prime allowed free rentals, I became hooked. I still love my paper masterpieces, but I'm definitely diggin' the Kindle.

  14. There is nothing that beats the musty smell of an old book! And you can't use an iPad as a coaster while you take a tea break and rest your eyes.

  15. Although a bought a few ebooks, I still haven't finished any. I seem to be sticking with the paper kind.This recycled books are awesome.K

  16. I still enjoy ready a book with pages. I go to the library as much as I can. Sometimes I feel like the books are like the toys from Toy Story where they wake up and get sadden that they are not being read all thanks to the gadgets. I know it's silly but that's how I feel :)

  17. I prefer an old fashioned book. Besides, I can share it, sell it, or donate it when I'm done with it. You can't do that with ebooks.

    ReplyDelete
  18. My favorite way is straight from the book itself! Though I do love the convenience of the kindle :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I just like reading - I don't care how! I think there are pros and cons to all ways, and I do all consistently - hard copy, e-book, and audiobook.

  20. Ooh I love these! I have a sony reader but I don't use it that much as working in a library I usually pick up books from work all the time. I am by no means anti-ebooks though!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Wow, these are so great! Since I work at a library I'm a little biased toward the printed book :) Just something about the way it feels in my hands.

  22. i love to use my kindle everywhere - in the bed, in the waiting room, at school, on the plane.

  23. I love the idea of books being digitally preserved, but I just can't get past the loss of paper and binding. I love the feel of paper, the sound, like a flock of tiny birds, that the pages make when they turn, and the way the ink sinks into paper. I love the weight of a book in your hand, and the creaking sound a new book makes when you open it for the first time. I love sitting in a library and feeling the weight of thousands of years of knowledge & creation surrounding me.But I admit I've been tempted by a kindle more than once. ;)

  24. These chargers are the bees-knees! I've recently have loved reading on my iPhone in spite of the tiny screen! I bump up the text size and read away in bed or on the couch, sneak away some pages to read while on break or killing time. It has become much easier in a way than to pull out a book (which I still do). I check out my ebooks through the public library Overdrive app which has tons of new books, and it's helped me read 9 books already into 2012!

  25. My favorite way to read WAS trough my Nook, but it recently died on me. I'm still deciding on whether to go the Nook route again or to give the Kindke a go.

  26. I love both my Kindle and actual book books. I especially love using the Kindle to read those massive old classics, since carrying a Kindle around is a whole lot lighter than some of those heavy books.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Though I do have an iPod, iPhone & iPad (no kindle) nothing beats paper. I do a decent amount of reading relating to projects etc. on my iDevices but read books only on paper. I love vintage books, that charger looks very very gorgeous (GIMME IT!!! :D)Just kidding. Not. :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. oh my cuteness. i want! my favorite way is on my kindle. occasionally on paper though.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love reading solid books, but I have to say it has become a regular pleasure of mine to be able to just throw my ipod in my clutch and easily read an e-book on the bus as opposed to having to carry around a larger bag with a honking book in it.

  30. I will forever be in love with the printed page, but I have never tried an e-reader, so my opinion may change!

    ReplyDelete
  31. These are absolutely beautiful! I love the deep red color of the Dracula one!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm a huge fan of these! I'm pretty traditional, I love printed word. I have a Kindle and I'm just about 100% warmed up to it. Thanks for the give away!

  33. this is seriously one of the best giveaways ever! i was just over at Rich Neely's etsy shop admiring the Alice in Wonderland charger! Lately, I've been preferring to read books on my Kindle :) Thanks for the chance!

  34. My amazing boyfriend got me the Nook for Christmas & I love it SO much! As an avid reader, I love the fact that I can easily be reading & changing between multiple books! It's just perfect. Of course, I will always have a romantic attachment to the the printed page, but I adore the accessibility that my Nook gives me. :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I prefer reading on my iPhone while I'm in the train. Although I'm also very fond of miniature books that do contain the whole book but are very small so they aren't to heavy to carry with you.

    ReplyDelete
  36. i really love my kindle. it's just so handy to take along on the bus or on holidays. but when i'm at home i still love curling up on the couch with a good old printed book...

    ReplyDelete
  37. My favorite way is curled up in bed with the book, my critters, lots of blankets and a big cup of tea!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love books due to lack of shelving space, I use my Kindle for 70 percent of the books I read, I just can't myself, but buy more hardcover books to lug home. Sigh. I just re-read my original blue paperback set of Laura Ingalls Wilder books and remembered just how much I love books. Sigh!

  39. Even if the e-reader of my flatmate is pretty fancy, nothing compares to the style of an oldfashioned book!

  40. love, love, LOVE! and what a great idea for the "gadchick" in all of us :) by the way, this is the first i've heard that term. yes, i live under a rock. ahah.anyways, i love the actual book for the same reasons i love vinyl. there's just something more "romantic" about it!anyhow, thanks for the opportunity - this is an awesome product! would love to win it :) merci.

  41. I love reading. I don't really care wich way. But I find it's super handy reading books on my iPhone, iPad or Kindle. I can carry around tons of books at once and read whatever I'm in the mood for :-)
