Tired of having to play ultimate tetris just to wedge a new book among the rest of your collection? Do you desperately want to get rid of some of these books, but the used bookstore doesn't want them either? Too ashamed to donate them? Feeling crafty? Or just plain vindictive towards the unwanted books that just won't seem to evaporate from your life??
