I've been trying to fit some non-fiction books into my reading list lately and picked this up after a patron had returned it to my public library. I read it over my lunch break over a few days and found it extremely interesting. The book was divided into four sections: collecting books, creating a library, preserving and conserving, and crafting with books. It gave a lot of really great ideas about each topic and I appreciated the author's insight, photographs, personal examples in each area. My favorite section was the one on different craft projects and decorating ideas using books and I am looking forward to reading the authors first book on this topic, The Repurposed Library.
