A Christmas Tree Made of Books

Yet another way to put discarded books to good use.
For a recent holiday party, the folks at Juniper Books used 800 green books to make an 8-foot Christmas tree. They lit the tree from the inside, so it was glowing nicely through the spaces in the books.
In most schools fire regulations prohibit live trees. Isn't this a great alternative? I'm sure your students would love to help.
It's too late for this holiday season, but start planning for next year.
Happy Holidays!
