  6. Our company has a "Bookitecture" drive where one can donate books and they'll be used to "Construct" something the kids design (non-destructive to the books of course) and then the books given away as the "structure" is "deconstructed"... These would be great to include.

  7. when i was about 8 years old, i scanned the bookshelves in my favorite used bookstore-specifically looking for the oldest-looking spine. i ended up with "loyal little red coat" from the 1890's, which looks like a lot of these. thank you for your great blog:)
