Other Uses for Books

We all use books for things other than reading, right?  Like end tables or bookmarks while reading other books.  I've discovered a new use, but now you'll all know what an awful housekeeper I am and how lazy I am.  I prefer to think I'm innovative.

Our top bed sheet always come out of the dryer with the top edge crumpled.  I think ironing sheets is a ridiculous waste of time, although I had to iron pillowcases at home.  But this top edge was annoying me.  So one day when I put clean sheets on the bed, I looked at the chunkster books on my bedside table and a little light went on.  Hey, it works quite well!  Top edge nice and smooth!


Do you have any unusual uses for books?

  1. No, no unusual uses for books. But I have sheet that has a top like that too and I never iron it. Now I know what to do with it!

  2. Gold star for creative use of books! Sometimes I make my own mailing envelopes out of creative paper like old calendar pages, and I will stack a few heavy books on top while the glue sets. I also use books to prop up a book I am reading while having lunch. But those aren't quite so interesting as yours!

    1. Thank you! I think it was a brilliant idea, too! Instead of ironing, I have more time for reading! I like your ideas, too. Aren't books amazing?!

  3. Great idea, I don't iron sheets either. At the moment I'm using books to prop up a kitchen cabinet!
