Some books are best friends. Weathered companions whose every page is to be cherished and preserved for future generations.
The written word is powerful, and the best writing can stay with you your whole life.

Encyclopedias make dandy flower presses, and there are many ways to make shelving from old books. Check out Pinterest to get the juices flowing and then do your own thing--old books are low-cost or free so you can go ahead and not feel too bad about "messing up". Mess-ups often lead you to exciting discoveries.
