    They cut up the books? OUCH! They look really good nonetheless, as long as they were gonna be thrown away or were unusable anyway. I wanna make one!


    p.s. No books were harmed in the writing of this entry. XD

    nylusmilk: that’s what i like to believe too; there are some lousy books out there anyway. 😛 well if you plan to make one try not to harm the good books…
