as one so afflicted, here's a group for people who use books for mail art purposes or even just labor under the yoke of book addiction, those yearning masses who amass books intended for reading but which, mostly just pile up.

Really I joined because there are things that intrigue me in relation to books and how they are used.

Do you bookie people keep them in neat piles, or not so neat perhaps, in one room? Or is the term 'pile' used metaphorically? My 'pile' is distributed all over the house plus there are ebooks that lurk in my tablet. Unread or semi read as they might be.

I said semi read because I always have several books on the go at the same time. This is to suit my mood, time of the day, or night, place and wether I am lucid enough to understand what I read.

I may have misunderstood the purpose of this group. Is it about tearing up books to make mail art? Oh! I could never do that!

I have used my old copy of Cannery Row but only because I found it had completely desintegrated all by itself

Fike, I'd like to have seen it that way too, but alas. Let me know the secret if you discover it, ok?

Reincarnation for this thrift store book.  It will now travel through the mail to a new home on the planet.  Saved!!!

 I will be attending our Library’s used book sale today - which is a huge Bi-annual event.  

A gold mine if there ever was one for mail artists.

I just ordered Chambers "The King in Yellow" after seeing it at Neal Wilgus' blog.
