Not A Real Book On Not A Real Chair


 Mwah hah hah hah haaa! 

 Just when you thought the Book On A Chair meme couldn't be flogged anymore, may I present my latest diabolical twist on Ms Scarlet's original masterpiece:

A Kindle eBook on a chair made of real books

 If you have poor eyesight, or couldn't be bothered to click the pic to embigulate it, the books that make up the chair (plus the eBook) are those that I have read so far this year:

1. The Face of the Unknown (Star Trek: The Original Series), by Christopher L. Bennett (2016)

2. Grinny, by Nicholas Fisk (1973 [this edition 1987])

3. The City and the Stars, by Arthur C. Clarke (1956 [this edition 1978])

4. Not the Royal Wedding, written & edited by Sean Hardie and John Lloyd (1981)

5. The Carpet People, by Terry Pratchett, aged 17 (1971) and 43 (1992)

 That's it for now. We'll be back soon with cake (not CAKE!), Redshirts, and - possibly - Mrs Snatchpenny and her Hindu robot.

  3. Ssssshhhhh.... I am trying to finish a book for my next post.... but I ended up flicking through the Lakeland catalogue and watching a film about Colin Firth beating up Nicole Kidman (dire).
    Is that a cute dog basket? I am asking for a gremlin.

    1. ::whispers:: The Lakeland catalogue counts as a book! And Colin Firth should only be allowed to beat up Hugh Grant.

      It is a dog basket. But for cats.

    1. I fear my bum may be too big and would also smother Gryff Rhys Jones, Mel Smith, Pamela Stephenson, and Prince Charles!

  7. Nice reinterpretation of the books on a chair. Though, next to the animal crash pad, it's set up at perfect counter/bar height for cats looking for a classy drink.

    1. Uh... Thank you? I do, on occasion, feel like I'm younger than I actually am. Although it may be disbelief...
