Thank you all for the comments.

I did have to cut up the book and drill a hole to asemble the clock kit in the book.
I love books but after making a few book clutches, I found that cutting books up is rather theraputic and fun (not nearly as sad as I had anticipated). This trick is not to cut up a book that you love. I use funky books from thrift shops and library book sales. I tend to use old text books.

I found the clock kit at Joann Fabric and Crafts.
