Fancy reading your e-book in the bath? Your long wait is over — I have the answer┬á(cue long drum roll). Hours of selfless testing has proved its worth, and it’ll cost you pennies.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you, the Sony Reader waterproof case!

I wouldn’t immerse the whole thing in water (so don’t use it if you have a tendency to nod off in the bath), but it’s certainly proof against splashes. It’s so effective because with an electronic book,┬áyou don’t need to physically turn the pages, so having it inside a plastic bag is no hassle at all.
