Book Lamp lights up unused books

When you picture a book light, somehow I doubt that you would picture a book that’s been gutted and had a light installed inside.  If you don’t mind sacrificing a book you could make your very own book lamp.  You can even choose one that has the title to put a funny spin on things.  Like the one chosen by the original creator, “The Illuminatusi Trilogy”.

The whole light has a tutorial to guide you along your path to create a Book Lamp.  Since you’re just using a used book of your own, the project won’t cost you much either. The person that wrote up the tutorial just paid $5 for a lamp from IKEA and then used it to make the light.  You’ll also need simple tools like an X-acto knife, pliers and safety glasses.
