Do you have too many books for your shelves to house? ARE YOU SWIMMING IN STORIES! Do you have to dance around stacks of books to go anywhere? Do you have piles of books you don't read, but they mean too much to just give away? Do you feel like you belong on an episode of Hoarders? Do you envy all the hip people on instagram and pinterest with their clever crafts and swanky setups? 

WELL THEN I HAVE SOLUTIONS FOR ALL YOUR BOOK HOARDING NEEDS!

ALTERNATE USES FOR YOUR BOOKS 
and tips on how to make them look hip



1. NIGHTSTAND! 
Is your side-table overflowing with books from your TBR pile? Does it look a bit ...junky? WELL DASH THE NIGHTSTAND ALTOGETHER AND TURN THE MOUNDS OF BOOKS INTO THE STAND! THAT'S RIGHT! PUT YOUR TBR PILE TO USE AND MAKE IT A TBR TABLE! Toss on a lamp to make it practical!
Afraid of drink cup rings getting on your new furniture? NO MIND! Just place protective glass on top 


2. Turn your books into MORE SHELVING. 
Now isn't this just nice? YOU CAN DISPLAY ALL YOUR BOOKS! Even the ones you think are cool but you never actually read!


3. MAKE A HOME GYM!
Because let's face it, books are heavy, and you do need muscles to move them all. Should all your books fall on top of you, you need to be able to claw your way out! SO DO A BENCH PRESS OR TWO! Pro Tip: If you hold your books over your head, you can conveniently lift AND read at the same time! NOW WHO DOESN'T WANT TO KILL TWO BIRDS WITH ONE STONE?


4. A SNAZZYYY FOOT REST!
Add a pillow and some duct tape to fasten it (or swanky leather belts) to make your footstool more comfortable!


5. A Game of BOOK THRONES!
Place your least favorite books where your posterior would typically sit!


6. Book Mobile
Got tiny tots who need a mobile? Do you just like staring at your ceiling and you're getting tired of the same old view? STRING YOUR BOOKS TO THE CEILING! Pro Tip: secure the books to the ceiling as firmly as possible. Having a book fall from the ceiling and clobber you in the kisser is painful and may result in concussion and or paper cuts.


7. BOOK CLOCK
Time always flies when having a good time! Just how quickly are you reading those books? Check it out by telling the time...WITH BOOKS!


8. WALL ART!
Remove all your photographs of family and friends nailed to the walls, and replace them with books! That's right! Mount your books right on the wall!


9. A TASTEFUL SHRINE! 
Have a favorite author? Want them to pop out among your army of other authors? CRAFT A BEAUTIFUL HOME JUST FOR THAT AUTHOR'S BOOKS! THAT'S RIGHT! MAKE A SHRINE! You're not watching tv anyways, so place that shrine right in the middle of your living room. Now, whenever people enter your home, they won't have to guess at who reigns mighty over all the other authors. They can just check the shrine! Pro Tip: Add some framed pictures of your favorite author, maybe even a banner, so definitely nobody will mistake just who you're obsessing over.



Are you broke? Can't afford new books?
IT'S NO MATTER! IF YOU FOLLOW THE TIPS TO USE YOUR STACKS OF BOOKS, THAN YOU DON'T NEED YOUR OLD FURNITURE! HAWK ALL YOUR OLD TABLES AND CHAIRS AND REPLACE THEM WITH BOOKS! USE THE MONEY YOU GOT FOR SELLING YOUR FURNITURE AND JUST BUY MORE BOOKS!
