7 Speed Reading™ shares 10 creative uses for unused books at the software’s official blog, with ideas that will appeal to bibliophiles around the world. eReflect, as the developer of 7 Speed Reading™ software, is well aware of the dilemma that affects speed readers everywhere: the faster a person reads, the faster the finished books pile up around the house. To help solve this problem, the blog editors have pulled together creative solutions that help people empty out their already-crammed bookshelves.
eReflect believes that no matter how many books a person has in their home, there will always be innovative ways to upcycle them for décor and other uses. One of the solution eReflect recommends is using old books to create a festive atmosphere during the Christmas holiday. Instead of the traditional tree, eReflect envisions a more literary celebration with a "tree" made entirely out of books - recycling the paper in reverse, in a way!
Another equally ingenious solution for putting unused books to good use is to use them as ceiling ornaments. As the blog explains, it's possible to create "lanterns" made of books glued open cover to cover on a thick string or rope, using 3 to 5 books each, depending on the ceiling height in the room to be decorated. In another creative trick, the covers can be glued together back to back, and the pages rolled and folded to create a "book flower," a decorative item that can embellish a coffee table, a bookshelf, or any personal corner in a home. For those lucky enough to have a large stock of previously-read books, especially those in larger formats, eReflect recommends building "book furniture" like a sturdy desk, a side table, or even a bookshelf out of books.
The creative repurposing ideas for old books are only limited by a person's imagination, eReflect notes. When people learn to speed read it's important to think about what will happen to the books once they're read. Speed readers are book lovers, and don't want to get rid of the books that have given them so much pleasure. eReflect points out that when a person is reading faster than average, they'll need to think about what to do with old books before they buy new ones. With a wealth of already-read books to turn into decorative elements around the house, book lovers can creatively upcycle their library to create a warm bookshop-like atmosphere in their homes.
The 7 Speed Reading™ blog post on new uses for unused books is a reminder to be more creative and think outside the box, which is what upcycling is all about.
