Books are perfect for hiding booze in

How amazing. Brooklyn-based company Bender Bound has a use for books, and it ain’t reading: it hollows out the tomes by hand and hides 250ml swing top glass flasks imported from Italy in them, so you can top these up with the tipple of your choice. You can choose from handcrafted law books, finance books, medical books, cook books, parenting books, dictionaries, or even send your personal copy of a hardcover book their way. See, drinking can be pretty intellectual.
