A bookshelf-like wallpaper that serves as a digital book library (pictures)
Here is another great idea that promotes books, and digital books in particular.
Vodafone Romania together with furniture store MobExpert, have developed a genuine innovation in interior design.
It’s called Digital Library Wallpaper, and it’s an adhesive wallpaper that resembles a bookshelf filled with books. When you take a closer look, you’ll see that on every book spine there is a QR code.
Scan the code with your phone or a tablet, and the free ebook will be immediately delivered to your device.
The wallpaper can be bought at Biblioteca Digitala. Each sheet costs around $100, and can be customized, using an online dashboard.
Users can choose between different bookshelf designs. Then they can pick up favorite books from a list of free titles. Finally, they can add some decorations and even personal photos.
PSFK blog reports:
The digital library wallpaper does not take up any floor space and helps brighten up an unused wall in people’s room or apartment. It’s perfect for book lovers who also love technology and don’t have the floor space for a physical shelf.
It’s not the first campaign of Vodafone Romania, that encourages to increase mobile data usage. A stunning digital library on Victoria Square metro station in Bucharest was created by the same ad agency, McCann Bucharest.

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
by Suzanne Collins
Part 1: The Mentor
Coriolanus released the fistful of cabbage into the pot of boiling water and swore that one day it would never pass his lips again. But this was not that day. He needed to eat a large bowl of the anemic stuff, and drink every drop of broth, to prevent his stomach from growling during the reaping ceremony. It was one of a long list of precautions he took to mask the fact that his family, despite residing in the penthouse of the Capitol’s most opulent apartment building, was as poor as district scum. That at eighteen, the heir to the once-great house of Snow had nothing to live on but his wits.
His shirt for the reaping was worrying him. He had an acceptable pair of dark dress pants bought on the black market last year, but the shirt was what people looked at. Fortunately, the Academy provided the uniforms it required for daily use. For today’s ceremony, however, students were instructed to be dressed fashionably but with the solemnity the occasion dictated. Tigris had said to trust her, and he did. Only his cousin’s cleverness with a needle had saved him so far. Still, he couldn’t expect miracles.
The shirt they’d dug from the back of the wardrobe—his father’s, from better days—was stained and yellowed with age, half the buttons missing, a cigarette burn on one cuff. Too damaged to sell in even the worst of times, and this was to be his reaping shirt? This morning he had gone to her room at daybreak, only to find both his cousin and the shirt missing. Not a good sign. Had Tigris given up on the old thing and braved the black market in some last-ditch effort to find him proper clothing? And what on earth would she possess worth trading for it? Only one thing—herself—and the house of Snow had not yet fallen that far. Or was it falling now as he salted the cabbage?
