Being a librarian, what do you think of book crafts? To me, they're like a car accident, you just can't look away, but they make you feel sad at the same time.
I kinda feel the same way but I personally only do book crafts with books that are beyond repair. Like if the binding breaks and we aren't able to glue and/or tape it back together the book is fair game. I'd rather make something beautiful out of it than just throw the book away.
