Product Details:

Hard as it may be to envision, it wasn't really until the 1990s that backpacks became the go-to bag for school kids. Satchels were the thing of the 70s and early 80s, and the big to-do of back-to-school time (after lunchboxes, of course) was checking out who showed up with a new book bag. Imagine how popular you'll be amongst all the kids with your new book bag, quite literally. This satchel looks like a leather-bound book from the outside, and pays homage to our favorite hobby - READING! At almost 16" x 13" x 5", you can use it as a purse, a small tote, or a smaller laptop/netbook/tablet case. (We intentionally designed it to fit a 15" Macbook.) Throw it over your shoulder with the long strap or remove the strap and use the convenient top handle instead. Irony: use it to carry your ereader! If you go that route, we bet you can fit your phone, wallet, keys, and all your other essentials inside, too. So get a new book bag today. You deserve it.
