If you want to get into the holiday spirit without having to cut down a poor, defenseless evergreen, check out this clever idea from the resourceful folks at the Gleeson Library [2] in San Francisco. They stacked a bunch of their own books (bound in a rather apropos shade of green) to form a perfectly proportioned recycled Christmas tree [3] to add cheer to the space. The best part? Once the holidays are over, all of the books go right back on the shelves they came from!
