20 Awesome Ways to Reuse Old Books

By Just Heather |

I can’t even begin to explain my love of books. I love to read them, I love to be around them, I love to smell them. Libraries make me happy. Bookstores are a dangerous place. Thrift stores, yard sales, and used bookstores are much more my speed.

I buy a lot of books. Some because I wish to read them over and over. Some because I just can’t wait long enough for the library wait list. And, some I buy just because — $.50 for a beautiful vintage book will catch my attention every single time.

Now, I just have to decide what to do with them. I’d been passing them onto my best friend for a project she’s plotting, but I am loving these great DIY projects. I prefer the ones that don’t ruin the book in anyway, but the others are an incredible way to use a book that may already be falling apart.

Here are 20 amazing DIY projects for old books:
