Recycling Old Books to make Book Shelves

Do you have a dozen novels from your before-marriage days ? When you’re single, that’s one loyal companion for the weekend – John Grisham, Robin Cook, Ayn Rand and the like. Oh, and what did you do to those large hardbound ones from college – you know the ones they call ‘textbooks ‘? My engineering books didn’t come any cheap; I remember spending at least two thousand rupees every semester, only to sell them to a raddiwala for a hundred bucks a few months later. The syllabus changed soon after so it wasn’t of any use to the juniors.

Well, if you have any of those antique dictionaries or encyclopedia volumes, here’s a novel idea. Turn them into book shelves.
