So suddenly my "too many books" became "not enough" and that's what led me to be giddy with excitement about free books. Sometimes more=less, ya know? Eh? Whatever. I'll leave it.
It was really easy to make it. I had two long canvas style belts that I put together by running the tail of one through the buckle of the other. Then I placed them on the floor beside my bed. I stacked books on top of the belts until the stack was just right. (I think I tried about 5 different styles.) When I got it all level and how I wanted it, I wrapped the belts around the sides and tops of the books and joined them together again and tightened. I put a tray on top of it all. I'll feel better about putting a cup of water or something on the tray that the books. And then I filled the tray with pebbles. You could glue the books all together, but I'm not that committed to this table yet. Plus, I may decide to read some of those books. You never know.
