    Heres a tutorial from Home Garden Television (HGTV) on how to make a stacked-book table lamp using hardcover books, a lamp kit, lamp shade, drill, and screwdriver.  (Even though new uses for old books is a recurring theme here on Unconsumption, if youve got books you no longer want, but think could be of interest to other readers, then consider selling them or giving them away instead of using them as raw material for lamps or other projects!)

A bookshelf quilt! You could embroider the names of your favorite books on them. Would be a great hand-me-down for your children (the books would tell them a bit about you).

It's a neat lamp. But it's a $5 yard sale find with a $5 cord. Quite a scam to sell it for $185 on Etsy.

stacks of same colored books - applicable for any season, what a simple and charming idea for a book loving home! ((Or for color of the month learning!))

Wow this is cool!! Makes me want to curl up with a classic!
