Beside the most logical and common idea that books are to be read, I am going to show you what I did with a book that I got at the $tree, and just did not want to throw out...but wasn't my kind of reading...
pick a book with 250 pages (more or less),
I remember doing something similar to this while I was in Elementary school.
Right now I am really enjoying the neutral color, so this is how it is staying.
Cost of this project $1
(and if I ever want to read the book, I can just unfold each page and read on)
