Google -- altered books It is so hard for me to give up old, nice books but I know there comes a time when we have to do that. I always try to find small libraries who need donated books. Hope you can find some good use for them

Somewhere, I saw some books that had been used to make a little shelf. It involved taking 2 or 3 books and cutting them with a saw into a triangle so that the spine of the books was on the front. You cut from the top and bottom of the spines to the edge of the book so that the edge of the book was the right angle that fit against the wall. I believe that they took the pages out of the books and glued in a board or boards to the proper thickness. The books were attached together, and the covers of the book that were on the outside were glued shut. Another book was laid on the top edge for the shelf part. I believe that it was screwed down. Hangers were attached to the back. I wish I could draw a picture on here to show y'all!
