Bookbricks popping up all over the place

What a cool way to use books rescued from a fire–just don’t check out the ones at the bottom of the librarian’s desk there. (I’m noticing the titles are turned in out of sight just in case.)

I wonder who first thought that books would make not only great bricks, but a mushroom farm–there’s this one in Quebec.

Creativity rocks!

I love the library desk…but not sure I can appreiciate the outdoor use, complete with mushrooms “sown” in them.

I love the desk! And so appropriate for a library.

“We are stardust. We are golden. And we’ve got to get ourselves back to the garden.” (Thank you Joni Mitchell.) Though I’m with Ruth on the sowing-of-mushrooms.

Love the desk. Wonder if there were any knitting books in there.

Clever idea, but I’m not sure I’d be checking out books at the TOP of the stack.
