Tell us how to save a book !

A Tumblr for everything one can do with a book besides read it.

We are not advocating the destruction of books. No, we think books are the most useful thing on the planet. Once they have been read, they can be re-read, lent out, used to decorate a home (they are the ONLY thing you need to decorate a home, really) or placed under your pillow for nighttime absorbtion.

But, there are millions and millions of books that end up in landfills (at the dump) every year! Those are the books we are lobbying for here. We are advocates for unwanted books. We advocate for the re-purposing and use of all of the lonely lovely books from the Island of Unwanted Books.

Book art, bookbags, book furniture, book safes and anything else we can find. No holds barred. What can we do to save a book's life. Send your links and help us save the life of just one!!

Book Of Love by David Kracov

Inspired by David’s love and passion for reading and poetry, the pages of “Book Of Love” transform from the prose of the likes of Browning, Frost, Shelley, and Byron, into a colorful burst of hearts. “Book Of Love” is a hand-made, one-of-a-kind, steel sculpture, and David writes different prose and poems in every sculpture, so each and every “Book Of Love” is truly unique. Romantic and tragic, short lived and everlasting, every love has a story.
