This is my favourite challenge, and the only one I will be taking part of this time around (I wasn't planning to do any, but I cannot resist a little bit of book architecture...)
The challenge is hosted by Ellie at Curiosity killed the bookworm, go check it out if you like, there is time to take part until the end of the readathon.
Here's my attempt from last year - I can definitely see some progress.
I was quite ambitious this time around and used 24 books altogether, making sure I don't double any (directly on top of each other or standing with whole covers touching). The first attempt failed before I could take a photo - there was a major collapse of books that led Robert to flee under the bed. The second attempt was a lot better, though (key ingredient - I removed that slippery dust jacket from Bernadette - it's all in details, people). Jan helped as well (mostly by leading the cat troops) and all in all we had a lot of fun building the book tower.

|This is where it all started going horribly wrong...|
|Let's take a moment to admire how cat-resistant|
this book tower is.
