Coolest Bookshelves EVER: Part Uno We already know what our book piles say about us, but what do our bookshelves say about us? Are we any sort of creative with how we display our books? I certainly am an epic fail in this department. I have one cool bookshelf (made of tree branches), but the rest are straight up and down run-of-the-mill bookshelves. UPDATE: Check out the second part, featuring a luxury car hung as a bookshelf…. If this were mine… I’d place books on the appropriate state shelf in which they are set. I’d read more because my wall would be screaming at me to do so, and I’d feel guilty if I didn’t. I would feel dizzy. If these were mine… I’d no doubt, no doubt, have a few broken toes already.

I'm not going to lie, sometimes I walk over to the kitchen and open up the cabinet and just stare... and smile. These plastic lunch containers above are not the best quality around... at all. The baskets that I used in the fridge are amazing!

one hundred push ups Depending on the results of your latest test, continue with an appropriate week and column, even if it means you have to complete Week 5 again. If you managed 46 - 50 push ups, follow column 1. If you completed between 51 & 60, column 2 is for you. More than 60 consecutive push ups? Tremendous! You'll be following column 3. Well? If you struggled with Week 6 (many people do), no problem, just repeat the appropriate week and try again.
