My first cell phone happened when I went away to a small rural college in Iowa. Back then, there were only a couple spots to even get service on campus. My phone was tiny, and there were no cute cases to keep it safe. Fast forward 15 years, and now my iPhone can be blinged up with just about anything, including an array of phone cases for book lovers.

Phone cases for book lovers can feature literary quotes, the images of famous authors or from favorite books, or they can simply be a gorgeous stack of books. Whatever brand of phone or operating system you have, there’s some kind of perfect phone case for you.

Find below an awesome array of phone cases for book lovers. I’ve noted what types of phones they’re made for to help you pick your perfect next case. Many are available for other makes of phone if you navigate to the store’s shopfront.
