Balance your books

"Do you have your books?" We remember hearing this query every morning before we headed out the door for school. Leaving the house without having to lug our textbooks would have been an absence we would have noticed, we think. But now you can always have a good book with you with this Olde Book Backpack.

See, the Olde Book Backpack looks like a book, and it also holds your books. With 2 lightly padded, adjustable straps, this backpack will show you're ready for the coming bibliocracy. It has a padded pouch for your tablet or laptop, plus hard (but flexible) sides to protect your stuff from the slings and arrows of everyday life as well as the thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to. It is a backpack devoutly to be wished.

Note: We worry a little that when you put your books in a book, you might kick off some sort of infinite regression. Biblionception? So, you know, if that happens, be sure to tell us so we can warn the others.

"Will my laptop fit in this bag, ThinkGeek?" Let's find out together!

Laptop fitting guide
Measure your laptop.
Like tvs, laptops are listed by their measurement on the diagonal. bags, on the other hand, are measured on the edges. not all 17" laptops are the same size, so you'll need to measure the length & width of your closed laptop.

"But my laptop is at home, ThinkGeek!"
If you can't wait, google has superpowers to tell you the dimensions of your laptop if you ask it nicely. Just input the make and model of your laptop and ye shall receive.

"I've got the measurements! Now what?"
Compare your laptop's measurements to the measurements of the bag. If the laptop's measurements are smaller than the bag, it fits! If one or more of the laptop's measurements are bigger, you're out of luck with this bag. Try another.
