What To Do With All Those Books
Now That You've Gone Digital

by Kris Kahrs

I've been trying to get my hubby to donate some of the numerous books in his collection so that our son can have his room back.  All of our books are currently taking up space in my son's room.  I thought it might make it easier for my husband to let go of the physical books themselves now that he has the digital copies of them stored on various devices.  Hmm, maybe if I gave him some ideas of what to do with them.  Here's what I came up with so far:


Make A Book Chair



Donate Them to the Book Vending Machine


 
Birds Like Books Too



Book Fashionista



Gateway to Another World



Or A Hobbit Hole


See? There are lots of choices.  Oooh, I think he'll like this recipe for book smoothies.  Hopefully we can find some happy solutions here. Write on people!

  1. Funny ideas of what to do with your books. Good luck getting your husband to let go. I have a hard time with my husband getting rid of anything.

  4. Cool ideas. I love the hobbit hole. Maybe your husband could retreat there with his hard copies and his book chair. I don't care if I fill a hundred cases, they will have to pry the inked paper from my cold dead hands, lol!

    1. Susan, if we had the space in our tiny house, I'd have beautiful coffee table books, design books and classic novels.

    1. Hi Barbara, somehow I don't think we'd get too far in those shoes either.

    1. Beryl, you may even be able to use thrift store books for that one.

  10. If only there was a way to convert books into chocolate chip cookies, I would eat them.
