Not only do I love Michael Kimmelman, but this "book forest" featured in his article re D.I.Y. culture - mmmmm!! Give-and-take reading is not new, but this idea is so sweet. Reminds me of Jo's idea to make reading sexier by turning the rusty old birdcage on my attic balcony into a beside table and bookshelf.
