Title: New Harlequin Paperback Books
Post by: peps on July 13, 2007 10:07:12 AM
I read a lot of the Harlequin paperbacks and once I'm done with them there is really no point in keeping them around since that's not the kind of genre you re-read.  None of my friends want them and there are only so many times you can just ditch them in some public place hoping someone with pick them up and enjoy.

Any thoughts on what I can do with them?  They aren't vintagey looking ones, just the new ones.  Sometime the cover pictures are fun, sometimes not.  The titles are usually sort of kick-ass, and the insides contain lots of fab dialogue.

Somewhere (on here I think) I saw a tutorial for making wallets out of the covers

There was a really neat tutorial to fold the pages of the book to make a type of wall decor. I found a couple pictures of what it is suppossed to look like in the end but Can not find the tutorial. I will keep looking though. Hope this helps a little.
