Clever! I too have trouble cutting up books. But Readers Digest condensed I might be able to handle.

My Husband would just die to see me deface a book like that but I think he'd be pleased with the outcome!
I may have to ask around for some outdated encyclopedias, they'd be awesome for this.

Oh so true.

Since i'm a library worker, I kind of lost my reverence for books - part of my job is ripping the pages out of discarded items so they can be sent to the recycling place (the covers have plastic on them and can't go). The first year I worked there, every time I had to do it I'd twitch.

These days... well I still love books. But I'm not so scared to rip them up! If it helps, pick up books that either violently oppose your personal values (then you can say "Take that person who disagrees with me!" *slash slash*) or books by authors you can't stand ("bestseller my arse, take THAT lousy plot devices!")

By the way, where do you get those LED lights??? ?
I'm not sure I've ever seen any like that here in Texas.

Oh dear! Derailed before I ever even get started!  Tongue

The ones I used were in the outdoor lighting section at the hardware store. They're solar powered, but you should be able to find mains or battery if you'd prefer. I don't know about in the states, but here they're just lumped in with the bulb type light strings.

Thanks so much for your very quick response, which will at least point me in the right direction....and if I can't find them right off the bat, I'm in good with the reference librarians at the library who can FIND ANYTHING!!!
