Horay for books!
This is old school and geeky enough that I like it!
Happy to make this my 50th Woot! Thanks Jas!
Simple + elegant (plus shirt.wooters are revealed as at least 1100 people who linger over their coffee while reading. Who'd a thunk it?)
I would buy this shirt... but I think I'll wait for the movie.
you need electricity to be able to read in the dark... or batteries at the very least...
What's a book?
No electricity required, but reading by candle light is not fun.
Woooooo, books! You can read them on the computer... Oh wait.

Candle light or a fire in the fireplace. Light at night, OLD SCHOOL!
e-books - No trees required. :P
My "So many books, so little time" shirt wore out. This will be a good replacement.
No electricity, eh? So what powers the printing presses?
The only problem with this shirt is that it lacks the new book smell.
So I can tell that the book on the top shelf is about cats, the book on the bottom is about recycling, but can anyone tell me what the book on the middle shelf with the Asian character might be about?
People who call themselves dedicated book readers say that paper is the only way to go. At the same time, do they know how much energy is required and how much pollution is created by cutting down the trees, processing the paper, printing/assembly and all the transportation in between?
Ebook readers are much better for the environment.
Relatively l a m e as far as shirt.woot goes. I'm disappointed. This is neither humorous, nor offensive, nor geeky. And the clipart looks like it came out of microsoft office.
Shirts with sayings/slogans on them like this one, are for posers. They should include this paragraph, on the back.

He's a cat recycler.
Love that Jasneko chose a typewriter-style monospace font for this one. Definitely seems to fit the subject.
I once had my books organised by spine color. Looks like all the Little Golden Books, National Geographics and Penguin Classics (with the orange spines) are on another bookshelf, in another castle. Congrats Jasneko you've had a steady run of prints lately.

It's too hot tonight for coffee, I think I'll linger over my Green Viscous Soda while reading instead.
My guess is a very loose version on JRR TolkIien's signature.

No trees, just a few non-renewable resources and hazardous waste
Kindle. Requires virtually no power and is recommended by orthopedic surgeons worldwide. Try carrying 2,000 books on your back.
Shirt is as dead as paper books and libraries.
Gosh - I think this is my highest vote total yet...thanks everyone!
I'd also like to reiterate: This shirt strongly suggests using libraries (they're free!) and used book shops (nearly free!), swaps, trades, lending and passing on books to others as much as possible, rather than buying new books - for the sake of the trees! Thanks all!
I just want to know who took a bite out of the middle shelf...it had the full story of that poor ninja a few shirts back who caught fire.
Anybody going to identify those several books that have markings on them? Like, what Japanese symbol is that one in the middle?
Tao Te Ching?
Wow, they make books on PAPER now?
Yey books and libraries! I will never buy a kindle or any sort of electronic reader. People need to step away from the electronics and the phones once in a while. It's ok to be oldschool.
Great job on this design.
The chinese character the chose to put on the book means "younger son". Kind of a wierd chpice.

Why would you carry 2,000 books on your back?

I think it is on one of the P90X dvd's
YAY for real books!! It will be a sad day if electronics completely take over the reading world!
That must be the Woot derby record library of all the shirts that got rejected.
After wearing some random Woot tees I have fallen in love with them and want to buy more but I refuse to spend more than $10 on them. The shirts since Wednesday have been terrible. Worst Derby Ever... Woot I am disappoint. All of the tees in the fog are really bad. I predict instant reckoning.
I may never buy another paper book so this shirt could be a nice reminder of 'olden times'. :p
Nice win, jasneko!
