    Maybe it would be better to “recycle” books by passing them along to someone who will read them instead of destroying them.

    I keep seeing these kinds of articles on Inhabitat, and the idea that a book needs to be ‘repurposed’ may be the ultimate conceit of the electronic age. Green Eggs and Ham with a hole drilled through it is a damaged copy of Green Eggs and Ham. What a shame. Drill holes in something other than people’s ideas and art please. Maybe we could ‘repurpose’ Michelangelo’s David into a nice countertop, or maybe the Constitution of the United States would make a good handbag. What do you say?
