I've recently been charmed by online photos of Christmas trees made of books. For bookworms who love Christmas (which I suspect is a healthy segment of Stellar Four's readership), this is a magical combination.
Here are images of trees made from as few as one book and as many as ... OK, I'll be honest, I didn't count all the books in the biggest trees. But we're talking at least two sets of encyclopedia volumes here.
Enjoy this literate Christmas display!

This prompts me to ask two questions. First, how stunning would my collection of paranormal romance and urban fantasy paperbacks be as a Christmas tree? And second, how long would it take my cats to knock that sucker down?
(Answers: So very stunning, and two hours.)
