This week’s random topic asks:
What do you think about re-purposing old books (eg. into art journals, etc)? Why?
If the books are John Norman, I’m all for anything that gets them out of circulation and inflicting themselves upon unsuspecting readers.
Overall though, I prefer to take the books to a used bookstore to get trade credit or donate them to the local library or to a group that might use them. Just because I’m finished with the book doesn’t mean that someone else might not enjoy reading it or someone else might want it. Even a book I didn’t like could find a reader who likes it out there in the wide world.
Again, except for books by John Norman. Because I despised every last second of the only book I’ve read by him.
