Books used to be trees. They’re basically ghost trees, trees given a second chance at life. So wait, reincarnated trees? Nevermind, metaphor, you’re useless. MY POINT: Why not build a tree out of books this Christmas? (If you celebrate that sort of thing.) Pod knows picking pine needles out of the rug isn’t any fun, so fuck ’em. Build yourself a Christmas tree out of books.
Make your own book tree with tips from Thoughts from Alice.
I’ve shared many book-tree photos over the year, and this year, I might actually try to build my own. This one in particular looks like something I could do. I mean, it’s just an artful stack, right? No acrobatics involved. So what if my 3-year-old is going to rip it down while I’m still building it? So what if I don’t actually have space for it anyway? So what if I dread cleaning it up? So fucking what. I want a tree made out of books.
