A Tower of Books!

First off, Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you're having a marvelous day of family, friends, food, and writing (for those of us behind on our NaNo word count *cough cough*).

One thing that I am epically thankful for is the mountains of books that I own. I love books. I love reading, I love authors, I love writer friends. *hugs*

So earlier this week, the lovely folks over at Reading Teen posted a video of a "Tower of Epic Bookishness" and challenged their followers to build their own tower.

Well, Naomi and I just can't pass up a challenge like that so..... we had the afternoon free and we decided to kick it up a notch and not only build a tower, but build an Eiffel Tower made completely from books.

Here you go - The Tour de Livre!

I loved watching. Your son at the beginning just sat on the couch with his phone texting, it looked like.. then when the project got started he was off and running.. joining in on the fun.. I love books and probably could build a Eifel Tower too.
This is great and enjoyed watching the building of books..
Have a blessed day~! ta ta for now from Iowa:)
