Recycled Old Book into a Laptop Case DIY

Do you guys remember the geeky laptop case I made? Well, the picture I had ironed on to it was beginning to fall apart, so I decided to make me a new one... from an old book.

I also took pictures while I was making it so that I could do a tutorial for you guys.
My laptop is an Aspire Netbook, which means its small and was easy enough to find a book that would fit it. I don't know if you can find a large enough book for a large laptop, but if you make one of these I would love to see your version!!
Supplies- Felt & Fabric (I used tan so it would look kinda like book pages) an old book (big enough to fit your laptop in) zipper, and some strong glue.
I think I'm going to add something to the front of the book, like a word or something, but I don't know what yet. Any suggestions?

-Katie
