A garden of discarded books? This has to be the most innovative and creative use of unwanted books I have ever heard of. Check it out here.

  3. Jillian and Cleverly: Good question :)

    I think that's part of the project. To let the books naturally decompose and work with that. They have mushrooms growing within the books.

  11. I will never give up my real books. NEVER. Really. There is no way I will trust a kindle. What in the world are people thinking? The book is lasting.

    There are times I think the internet and computers can and will fail and there will be no written hard copy of anything left.

    Long live REAL BOOKS!!

  12. Kim: I sure hope not too! :)

    Kay: I thought so too :)

    Cherry & Jenny: I think the point is to let discarded unwanted books biodegrade in a beautiful way :)

    Michelle: You're the cutest :) Thank you!

    Shannon: I do love that! :)

    Julia: I feel you. I agree. I have a Kindle. I love my Kindle. But nothing compares to a real book. ;)

    It's sad though the way people don't respect books anymore.
