Plant a Book

For the Love of Books is my very own weekly Sunday meme dedicated to the wacky, weird, and wild world-wide-web finds related to the world of books. Topics can be anything ranging from unique bookcases, sculptures of books, and odd bookstores, to interesting uses for books, book quotes, bits of book news, etc. I love web-surfing and I have come across so many ideas that the possibities for this meme are nearly endless! If you would like to join in the fun, snag the image on the left and post the link your specific blog post in comments so that others can read about your internet find!

I found a great idea for combining a green thumb (which I personally lack) with a love of books in the Book Planter! This Home and Gardening site explains how you can transforming a large book into a planter with just a simple cutting tool to make a hole with. It is a great way to display small, unique plants such as the Bonsai Tree and would make a great conversation piece for any household.

I am constantly being amazed at the number of uses for books that people can concieve of. It only further proves that no book, no matter how useless, outdated, or even controversial, should be burned. It is simply asking to be reimagined as something else more useful.

Don't you agree?
