I Couldn't Do It!

I received a link from Donna Pointkouski at What's Past Is Prologue concerning a recent article I wrote called Book Autopsies.

This link, Turn Unwanted Books into Vases and Furniture, carried on my theme about trends using unwanted books. Donna and I have both decided we would be unable to use books in this fashion.

Just to let you know, we here in Washington are ahead of the curve regarding trends; this is a book bench that's been in use at my favorite, out-of-the-way, dusty, creaky, quirky used bookstore since I moved here seventeen years ago.

I won't name the bookstore, as it's my Hidden Source. I have been unable to bring myself to check out the titles used.

I remember taking old Reader's Digests, a tumbler, a saucer, and a craft-type bird in Vacation Bible School and turning them into a bird feeder for a table. That vase reminded me of what we did with the Reader's Digest, so I guess it was around in Mississippi a long time ago too.

OMG (grasping heart area and stumbling around)!! These people can be arrested can't they? Can two people be classified as an 'angry mob'?
I was taught to treat books with respect. I'm sure this is against the law :o) I'm lighting my torch. . . . .
