Ideas For Old Reader's Digest Books

So last week, when I posted some of my 'Thrifty Finds', I completely forgot about my ten vintage Reader's Digest books. I first saw these books when visiting my friend Kelly earlier this year. She has them around her living room- they are all so charming! So, when I spotted a large table of these books while in North Dakota I was elated- even more so when I discovered they were only 50 cents a book! These are a few of my favorite covers up close:

Today I decided to do a search to find what people were doing with these books. They are all so unique and lovely, I knew I would find something.

I do have plans for some of these books already- you'll have to wait to see what I come up with (is the suspense just killing you?!?). After their initial use, I'm not so sure what I'll do with them. Any ideas? If nothing else, these books will surely adorn my bookshelf with pride!


  1. I love old Reader's Digests - they are so pretty. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with yours!

  2. I absolutely adore these! I can't wait to see what you whip up!

  3. Ooooh, I love those little notebooks! I wonder if you could make the covers into a little box to display your favorite yarns?

  4. Oh gosh, I totally want to rig something like that up!
