Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why wouldn't you want one?! This product is great. It can be easily concealed in any bookcase and has a decent amount of room to store your valuables that you don't want anyone to find. I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a unique place to hide things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty nifty! I bought this as a cashbox for convention vending usage, works great, and while I haven't yet tried it out at a con, I enjoy playing with it at home :D

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase This was sold out everywhere else. It really looks like a book and blends in well on my bookshelf. Deep protected inside with a sturdy lock holds plenty of items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hide it in the kitchen This is a PERFECT gift for my totally independent has everything brother. He is quite a cook and spends most of his time in the kitchen with his collection of cookbooks. Usually book safes are really blah looking and are sort of obvious of being a book safe. This "cover" is full color and really looks like a cookbook.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good camouflage This item provides decent storage for a small collection of valuables. Contents will slide, of course, when the "book" is stood up on a shelf. I have stacked several books sideways on one shelf with this box at the bottom, to avoid having to pad or bag the safe contents. This little safe will best pass for a book if it is placed well above or below eye-level. Unlike old-style versions in which the center was carved out of a real book that had only middle pages glued together, this will feel like a box to anyone who takes a close look or who picks it up--eg, a diligent housecleaner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Homesafe Hardback book safe This book safe blends in nicely with my desk and bookcase. I love it and highly recommend this to everyone. We all have items that need to be out of sight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great find This book safe is great to keep valuables since it has a key lock and looks just like a book. I keep it between other books and no one can tell. Great idea!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nifty Very simple little thing to keep a nice stash of money or trinkets (or whatever else you need to hide ;] )

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Idea This looks like, feels like, and seems like a dictionary in our library. It is a perfect solution to hide small items that you just don't need a large, bulky safe; i.e. credit cards, passports, etc. I put mine with two other real dictionaries and it is impossible to tell the difference.
