Tub Lit: Kickstarter project offers waterproof books | Book Patrol.

Just in time for summer outings at the beach, cool nights in the hot tub, or relaxing moments in the tub (or spa), comes news of a most practical literary development – waterproof books!

That’s right, you can now sit on water’s edge at the lake or let the bubbles splash water on your book without fear of damage. Now, titles are limited at this point, but Shakespeare and Mark Twain are not such bad places to start.

Here’s the story line – you can even support the project if you wish. A rather novel, ambitious project, wouldn’t you say?!

The latest crowdsourced gem for the book crowd comes to us from Bibliobath.

Thanks to Wing Weng and Jasper Jansen, a Dutch-Chinese couple based in Amsterdam, we finally have the waterproof book!

They have 4 titles ready to go; a selection of short stories by Mark Twain, one of the selected poetry by W. B. Yeats, an edition of Shakespeare’s Macbeth and a special Kickstarter-only edition of the Chinese classic The Art of War.
