I plan on doing this. As I am a librarian, I can probably even manage to barcode the thing and link it to some sort of made-up record in the library's catalog.

2 in 1 task!!!!!!!!! You can't beat this. This is awesome. I took THE PERMANENT COLLECTION and A REAL LIFE SECRET EGG and combined the two. The plan revolved around me taking a Pysanky egg that I created and hiding it inside of a book on Psysanky ...

I really like libraries, because I really like books and if I had to buy all the books I read in a typical month, I'd be completely broke inside of a year. Unfortunately for libraries, I have a pretty terrible memory as well as a voracious lust ...

Music for you. Comment vote to whoever can recognize it. Given my book, it should be fairly easy to pick out. Speaking of picking, I apologize for the scratchiness of the end. The biggest problem of this task was finding a book. Being a youngin', a...

This was a fun challenge because I got to be creative and make a book. I took this old blank journal that I had laying around from probably my wedding or something. It had a pretty cheesy cover, and I had never really used it. So I decided I would pa...

I've been working on this task for months in my brain. Years, even, if you count childhood anguish. So close is this to my heart that I knew instantly upon reading it what I had to do. I had to right my wrongdoing, and return the book I had stolen f...
