You can make an attractive table lamp from a stack of old books, as long as you don’t plan to read them again. Here’s how.  All you will need, besides the books, is a lamp kit.  Of course, you can get all the old books you need at the Friends of the Library book sale in September.

The Thrifty Fun website is a good place to look for easy, low-cost craft ideas.

There are lots of home improvement projects on the HGTV website too, including another stack-of-books lamp.

I’ve always kind of wanted one of these, except for two drawbacks.  For one thing, they look like dust catchers to me, and I already have plenty of dusty dust catchers in my home.

And the second thing: What if I want to read one of the books?

Of course, if I see a book I want to read, I can always get it from the library.
