Look! Counter Made from Books

Once we go through and purge our books, which happens a couple of times per year, we generally don't want to see them again (the cluttery look is why we get rid of them in the first place). But folks are getting so creative these days with old books, and we thought we'd share this idea.

Of course, this is the front counter of a bookstore, but it reminds us of a kitchen island. We could see the application of this idea as a clever counter-height laptop perch.
