Take your reading addiction to a whole new level this holiday season by building your very own book-tastic Christmas tree. We spotted this adorable idea on Family Sponge, and it’s perfect for your study, reading nook or any random corner of your house that needs some extra holiday cheer.

What you need: Books of all sizes and colors, a few strings of LED lights (they won’t heat up, so no fire hazard here) and a tree topper.

What you do: Arrange the largest books in a small circle on the floor. Continue adding circular layers of books, bridging the gaps from the circle below. String the lights around your homemade tree just as you would a real one and top it with a festive pinecone or star for flair. 

Just be sure to leave out one or two good books to curl up with on a snowy day.
