CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Secret Storage Books Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010


There is some­thing mys­te­ri­ously appeal­ing about a hol­low book safe — it is a prac­ti­cal idea that adds to home secu­rity, but is also an ideal trea­sure box for sen­ti­men­tal keepsakes!

Secret Stor­age Books recy­cles hard-bound books into a book safe to hold your secret trea­sures, love let­ters or valu­ables while trav­el­ling or at home. I totally love this idea, and was com­pletely ecsta­tic when agreed to a review and give­away with us at CoolCanucks!!



•All Book­boxes are hand­made in Canada, on Van­cou­ver Island.
•A lot of peo­ple know how to hollow-out books — but not like us!
•What we have learned over the past 18 years is how to make ele­gant book­boxes, con­sis­tently and quickly
•The pages of each book are first dipped into a vat of non toxic glue or starch
•The books are then clamped in gangs to avoid warp­ing dur­ing the cur­ing process
•Cur­ing takes place in a pres­sur­ized dry­ing cham­ber
•The hard­ened pages are then indi­vid­u­ally machined using var­i­ous kinds of cut­ting tools


I was sent a great Hard­cover Book to review. 

This Book safe does the job. It’s basi­cally a large hard­back novel with the inner pages removed to allow small items to be hid­den away in it. I really like the fact that its got a case within the pages that has a lid on it so you do not have to worry about any­thing falling out in case the book is dropped.

The nice thing is that if you want some­thing to be read­ily acces­si­ble and not have to mess with turn­ing the dial on a safe, this prod­uct works. Keep any­thing in it, from old coins or a small col­lectible to your cash stash or any­thing you choose. If you have a large book col­lec­tion like me then you really do not have to worry about it draw­ing atten­tion to itself.
For the price of these, I thought it was a great buy and are well worth the price,  since I’ve always been fas­ci­nated with things like this! You can order really any book imag­in­able as they cer­tainly have an exten­sive selection!




Most bur­glars spend less than six min­utes inside a victim’s home and only have time to check the most obvi­ous places for valu­ables. With this prod­uct you can hide your valu­ables in what looks like an ordi­nary book– the last place a thief would think to look. This is an actual book with a space in the cen­ter cut out and comes in assorted titles. They rock!!


You too have the chance to win one of these thanks to the very kind and gen­er­ous folks over at Secret Stor­age Books as they have gra­ciously offered to give one very lucky Cool­Canucks reader the chance to win one just like mine — (or 1 of their own choice worth $50.00 or less!) SWEET!!
