Which is something that fewer and fewer people are enjoying these days, the lack of appreciation of books depressing. Even with the creation of ereaders, which give us greater access than ever.
Why not do your part to show books some love? Check out these awesome purses that upcycle your favorites.
1. Harry Potter
While the series is now over and done with, Harry Potter will go down in history as one of the most popular fictional worlds of all time. Order of the Phoenix is a favorite of many, and this Etsy seller is offering purse with custom fittings, buckles, straps and decorations using the cover. I have seen many other Harry Potter books used, with every title available.

Even the picky fashionistas should appreciate this: the bag made of candy wrappers look colorful, bright and actually cool.
I don't think it will be solid enough to sustain the active usage (you won't be able to stuff it with all sorts of useless things you may like having in your handbag) but it will make you the center of any party!
